WyreStorm has announced the launch of three new pure HDMI 4K matrix switchers, the MX-0404-H2A 4x4 4K HDR HDMI Matrix with Audio Breakouts, MX-0606-H2A 6x6 4K HDR HDMI Matrix with Assignable Audio Breakouts, and MX-0808-H2A 8x8 4K HDR HDMI Matrix with Assignable Audio Breakouts.
The humble HDMI cable is still the best method to send high-bandwidth A/V signals from A to B and the updated pure-HDMI H2A matrix switchers from WyreStorm pack a pretty big punch.
With a 18Gbps backplane capable of handling every type of AV signal within the HDMI 2.0 specification the new 4x4, 6x6, and 8x8 models can also automatically trigger a connected CEC compatible screen on or off based on signal presence. Now featuring dedicated audio outputs for each zone in analogue and digital formats audio distribution amplifiers can be easily integrated without the need to fumble with converters.
Generally, as HDMI bandwidths go up, transmission distances go down…or so they used to. Coupled with WyreStorm’s Active optical HDMI cables with CEC pass-through these once simple switching platforms have become a compelling AV distribution solution capable of reaching distances of up to 50m/164ft. Bundling the H2As with WyreStorm Active Optical Cables completes the package and offers a fantastic HDMI switching solution.
