Adrian Ickeringill, Wyrestorm EMEA General Manager ISE 2013 Wyrestorm® - Overview of Exhibited Products:
ISE is an eagerly anticipated opportunity for us to meet with our valued existing distribution partners, as well as installers and prospective distributers from individual markets throughout the world to discuss how Wyrestorm® total AV solutions can improve their business.
It also allows us to showcase what we’ve been doing over the past year in terms of product releases, with returning attendees from ISE last year clearly seeing the realisation of our product concepts in the successful launches of our AV solutions over the past 12 months.
ISE 2013 promises to be even better, with visitors to the Wyrestorm® booth able to see not only where we are but where we’re heading, with the introduction of a number of truly innovative HD Distribution and Control solutions to support multi- zone commercial and residential installations of any size or budget.
This year sees us exhibiting another broad range of matrices, extenders , splitters, switchers & scalers and more, all over HDBT® and non-HDBT single and dual Cat5/6/7 cable, Single and Multi-mode optical fibre, coax and HDMI®. In addition we are unveiling several unique products quite unlike anything currently available on the market at our price point, such as a HDBT® POE extenders with EDID management, 24x24 multi-mode fibre matrix, a smart browser-based wireless device control system, an HDBT® Lite matrix custom-built to client specification with choice of multi-format transmission cards, and the first and only HDBT® receiver/repeater in the world with built-in Class D audio amplifier and bidirectional control and pass-through via IR/RS232 and 3:1 speaker breakouts.
We promised not to rest on the success of last year and we feel the products on display at ISE 2013 Illustrates our continuing commitment to innovation by broadening the applications of the latest technology with superior reliability, compatibility and price points that add significant value to your business and expand the industry as a whole.

HDBaseT® “Lite” Classification
4x4/6x6/8x8 HDBaseT® “Lite” HD Matrix Switcher (MX-0404-PP/MX-0606-PP/MX-0808-PP)
In response to feedback from installers wanting a more affordable HDBaseT® solution with reduced feature set, we were first manufacturer on the market to release an HDBT® “Lite” range of matrices and extenders with our Pro Plus 4x4, 6x6, 8x8 matrices, a 70m HDBT® Lite extender set.
Our Pro Plus range features distribution of full, uncompressed 1080p HD video and HD audio between sources and displays, including simultaneous HDMI® outputs, with discrete two-way IR, RS232, RS485 and LAN from a centralised AV location to displays up to 70m using a single Cat5e/6/7 cable.
As such, we believe our PRO PLUS range represents not only an evolution of a technology we have been dedicated to since the release of our first HDBT Extender in November 2010, but also demonstrates our continual belief in single cable HD distribution and control solutions as the way forward for our industry and something we feel is instrumental in the continued growth of the market.
A measure of that can be seen in our product range now offering 15 HDBaseT® solutions – a range that continues to grow.
New at ISE! Custom 8x8 HDBaseT® “Lite” HD Matrix Switcher chassis (PP-0808-HDBT)
Continuing from the popularity of our Pro Plus range of matrices, due to market calls for options and increased flexibility within the HDBT® Lite platform, the 8x8 modular matrix chassis with customisable transmission cards allows expansion of HDMI®, or the conversion of digital audio out, digital audio in and VGA input to HDBT, with additional inputs for HDMI® and RS232.
Options for the installer and possible expansion or upgrade of distributions have always been an a major consideration for us, so the customizable transmission design at the rear of the matrix units enable cards to be simply swapped out and slotted-in for future upgrades or bespoke matrix specification for initial customer order so the unit can be tailor made for precise project requirements.
Custom card options will include HDMI® expansion for cascading matrix models, Stereo Audio Output with digital output, Stereo Audio Input for audio only sources, and VGA input for non-HDMI devices. All cards convert to single cable HDBaseT® transmission to be distributed the length of the distribution to display zones.
