WyreStorm launches NetworkHD 400 series
The 400 series combines both commercial and residential features, including HDR, multichannel audio and 2K/4K auto scaling alongside PoE, separate audio routing and 16×16 video wall capabilities. It also supports HDMI 2.0a and HDCP 2.2, handling the delivery of visually lossless 4K UHD with HDR enabled content and multichannel audio up to Dolby Atmos and DTS:X with ease.
It has bidirectional IR and RS-232 for control of displays and sources from remote locations, as well as CEC support for triggering displays on and off. Additionally, the powerful scaling features of the NetworkHD 400 Series enable NHD-400-RX decoders to automatically scale incoming video signals to match the maximum capability of the connected display device.
“With the 400 Series intended for both commercial and residential applications where low latency, multi-channel audio and our highest quality picture with HDR is essential in the modern installation, we feel we have developed a solution that addresses all our customers’ AV over IP installation needs,” said WyreStorm NetworkHD and Enado product manager James Meredith.
The 400 series improves on the low bandwidth H.264 platform NetworkHD 100 and 200 series solutions by featuring latest generation AV technology that increases image quality and content security, while almost eliminating end-to-end latency.
Unlike a traditional fixed matrix, the adaptable modular matrix design of NetworkHD allows for a system to be expanded quickly and easily by simply adding more sources or displays without requiring an update to existing network architecture. Using standard networking technologies, NetworkHD enables any point on the network to support the latest 4K video and HD audio, with PoE providing power to all components from the switch and eliminating ugly power supplies or potential points of failure from a system.
New to all NetworkHD Series components, the 400 series also features compelling audio matrix functionality that enables audio to be routed separately from video to any decoder, leveraging networked AV distribution to its full potential.
“When combined with our groundbreaking free NetworkHD Touch app for iPad, we are confident that the 400 series 4K NetworkHD systems deliver best-in-class picture, sound and ease of use that our customers expect and deserve,” said James.
