WyreStorm 8x8 HDBaseT 4K Matrix Switcher with HDMI Outputs & 5Play

Part Number MX-0808-PP-POH-4K

* * * * * DISCONTINUED * * * * * 

Ultra High Definition 4K HDBaseT 8x8 matrix switcher with 5Play feature set supporting 4K and 1080p HD video, multichannel audio, Ethernet, power, two-way control via IR and local RS-232 over a single Cat6. 

Including internal LAN, switched HDMI outputs for expanded integration options and EDID management for the ultimate in next generation digital content distribution and control supporting resolutions up to 4Kx2K @30Hz for UltraHD projects today that are future-proofed for tomorrow. 

Please Note:  The HDMI and HDBaseT output ports cannot be used at the same time for a particular port i.e. no mirroring of the port.

Key features include:

  • Supports  4K@30Hz with 4:4:4 color ratio up to 70m/230ft 
  • HDBaseT Class A with full 5Play for one-cable transmissions of 1080p/48bit @ 60Hz, HD audio, Ethernet, two-way IR control, local RS-232 and power up to 100m/328ft 
  • HDCP 2.2 ready
  • New LAN platform allows remote access and hosts web-based GUI for configuration of advanced settings

NOTE: this product has been discontinued and replaced by MX-0808-HDBT-H2


The MX‐0808‐PP-POH-4K 8x8 matrix offers HDBaseT Class A distribution and control of both UltraHD 4K content up to 3840x2160@30Hz to 70m/230ft and 1080p/48bit@60Hz up to 100m/328ft along a single Cat6 cable. 

Boasting a full HDBaseT 5Play feature set including video, multichannel HD audio, two-way IR and local RS-232 control and network switching for LAN, Ethernet pass-through and PoH central powering of display zones, this latest evolution of the diverse WyreStorm matrix range builds on an already strong HD feature set by offering 4K support at 30Hz with 24bit color, a chroma sub-sampling rate of 4:4:4 and HDCP 2.2 support for compatibility with latest 4K encryption.

With transmission consisting of HDMI In, HDBaseT Out and switched HDMI out, the MX-0808‐PP-POH-4K is capable of using HDBaseT or HDMI connections including serial and IR control.  Furthermore, the module‐based chassis design of the MX-0808-PP-POH-4K supports future transmission module upgrades to allow systems to evolve as industry technical standardization dictates.

As with other models in the PP-POH range, the MX-0808- PP-POH-4K includes extensive internal EDID management using pre-set, stored or recalled settings via control software to negotiate communication between connected source/display devices with full compatibility with leading third party control systems including the WyreStorm Enado multi-platform control interface. 

Seeking to avoid compatibility issues encountered by some manufacturers with certain display devices, the WyreStorm MX-0808-PP-POH-4K is tested compatible with all currently available 4K screens, CI and commercial control systems, graphics cards and consumer devices that may form part of any present 4K project, while future 4K compatibility is assured through flexible modular transmission capable up being updated as technical standards such as HDCP 2.2 come into effect or should client distribution needs change to include 4K at a later date.
