Hello, Future. Hello, CEDIA.
CEDIA EXPO 2015 places attendees slap bang in the heart of the future home experience with the global showcase of the very latest trends in residential technology for audio, video, automation, networking, security, energy management and more.
Inspire and be inspired alongside the industry’s leading experts and futurists, expand networks and business opportunities with in depth training and industry-recognized certifications and soak up unrivalled access to the most visionary thinking products and resources in the world to discover life at home like it’s never been experienced before.
Now into our fifth year as exhibitors, WyreStorm has kicked up a gear as a full-line AV Systems Provider by new product segmentation to cover each key area of our business with our Retail-focused “Express” line, our Residential CI “Installer Solutions” and commercially-directed “Pro AV Solutions” brands – with 4K featuring prominently in our 2015/16 product road map and on our CEDIA booth.
Follow WyreStorm's CEDIA activities here leading up to and throughout the show with access to press releases, product information, downloadable content as well as images and videos of the WyreStorm crew in the thick of it and be sure to follow us on social media on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag #4KHQ
CEDIA EXPO will take place on October 14-17 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, TX.
“With the availability of 4K content and source devices set to explode as we enter the tail end of the year, we felt CEDIA was the perfect showcase for WyreStorm’s comprehensive range of 4K solutions for commercial integrators, custom residential installers and select end user applications. It's a measure of our belief in where we feel the industry is heading and our commitment to our technologies that 4K is all we are showing this year, which is why we’re using the #4KHQ – it's a bold statement but were presenting WyreStorm as your headquarters for all things 4K.”

H2 Series HDMI and HDBaseT Matrix Switchers
Our new H2 Series Matrix Switchers come in two transmission flavors but are both equally lip-smackingly tasty with 4K@60Hz 4:2:0 supporting the latest 4K broadcast standards, HDCP 2.2, chipset support of select HDMI 2.0 18Gb/s features such as CEC and WyreStorm's QuickSync technology for lightning fast switching.
Class A HDBaseT transmission is featured on 2U chassis 6x6 and 8x8 models, adding full 5Play support, PoH and ARC. Or if convenience is your thing, an HDBaseT Class B 1U 4-way matrix kit combined with matching low profile HDBaseT 4K receivers is offered for the same 4K@60Hz 4:2:0 support up to 35m/115ft.
If distance isn't an issue, the HDMI H2 models come in 1U 4x4 and 6x6 varieties, with both offering 4K@60hz 4:2:0 and chipset support of select HDMI 2.0 18Gb/s standards using standard high speed Category 2 HDMI cables up to 15m for flawless 4K local distribution.
New 4K HDBaseT Extenders
Fullly 4K and HDCP 2.2 compliant and with more connectivity than you can shake an RJ45 at, WyreStorm's new HDBaseT extender range is available in 35m, 70m and 100m options, offering rock-solid performance, easy installation and include a wide range of control options.
With features including 5Play with support of 4K@60Hz 4:2:0, ARC, dual Ethernet, two-way PoH and S/PDIF audio passthrough, KVM functionality with full data transfer, EDID management and arguably the first extender application using HDBaseT 2.0 technology, we've covered all bases to offer the most powerful and fully-featured HDBaseT extender solutions on the market.
Multi-View Switching and Scaling with 4K Output
Showing its face at CEDIA and driving our Man Cave demo on the WyreStorm booth is the SW-0402-MV-HDMI, a 4-input to 2-output scaling processor and matrix switcher that enables analog or digital sources to be displayed and switched in a number of screen variations on both HD or UHD screens. Full screen, Dual, Tri or Quad-view modes are supported, with up to 4 x 1080p screens viewable on a single 4K display to allow man cave dwellers to multitask work activities or play a little Madden16 while watching three other games, with WyreStorm's QuickSync switching between sources virtually instantaneously.
Free 4K Test Kits and Free Beer
Last but by no means least, did we mention we'll also be giving away our new 4K HDMI Test Kits to several lucky winners in our daily CEDIA draws? A combination equaled only by PB & J, the TT-KIT-4K is a 4K Timing Signal Generator and 4K Source Signal Analyzer built to handle any HDMI testing scenario with a whole host of features to get installations up and running in record time.
Oh, and be sure to swing by the WyreStorm booth on Friday afternoon to wet your whistle with a few brewskies on us. Ok, so the prize draw and the free beer won't help those of you who decided to stay at home, but for those who are heading south - happy days!
For all this and much, much more at WyreStorm booth 2019 at CEDIA 2015 14-17 October
