WyreStorm Adds Three New Products to its Most Powerful JPEG2000 AV over IP Lineup – THE NHD-500 Series

With WyreStorm’s AV over IP range of solutions continuing to lead this technology in the AV market, WyreStorm adds three additional products to their NHD-500 lineup, the most powerful and successful JPEG2000 AV over IP System. The freshly released products are a new Dante Transmitter, an In-Wall Transmitter, and an Economy NHD-500 Version. These three products aim to close every possible gap that AV integrators might face in their 1GbE AV over IP Deployments.


The NetworkHD 500s series is an HDMI 2.0 AV over IP solution. Capable of encoding up to 4K60 4:4:4 @8bit over 1Gbps network via copper or fiber connection, including Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG content. The newly launched NHD-500-DNT-TX is the Dante version that has the same technical and physical features of the existing NHD-500-TX with the addition of an integrated 2CH Dante & AES67 audio output for enhanced interoperability with other Dante & AES67 enabled hardware solutions such as amplifiers, DSPs, mixers or speakers.

The new 500-DNT-TX allows Dante to transmit audio from one of two inputs, HDMI or Analog. The analog input can be used as a method to connect BYOD audio devices or perhaps used as a connection to a microphone in a podium/presentation or similar applications. It is specifically practical in scenarios like live events, professional broadcasts, house of worship, etc.


In addition, WyreStorm’s In-Wall AV over IP transmitter is being released as a brand-new interface to be added to our award winning NetworkHD components. The NHD-500-IW-TX offers an entirely new NHD experience to facilitate the BYOD concept for classrooms, meeting rooms, and similar presentation scenarios. It is a 4K60Hz 2-Gang In-Wall Encoder with HDMI & USB-C Inputs, PoE, operates over 1GbE, and supports Dolby Vision & HDR, and a USB 2.0 interface.

Additionally, a dedicated 3.5mm audio input can be used for connecting external audio devices. You are no longer bounded by messy cables and flimsy wall mounted panels connected to the rack-mount transmitters. The new IW-TX is a wall mount AV over IP Transmitter that delivers the full signal quality with speed and reliability.

NHD-500-E-TX & RX

Last but not least, WyreStorm will be releasing the NHD-500-E version, which is the Economical variant of the very successful NHD-500 Encoders and Decoders. The NHD-500-E variants retain many of the same application uses as the standard 500 TX & RX with some stripped-down features that are not required for several AV installs.

They retain 4K60 video encoding, PoE and video wall processing like the full TX and RX, however a few other features were removed like the Fiber, USB, S/PDIF, Analog Audio Out on the decoder, 3.5mm Audio on the Encoder, and the RS232 on the encoder. The focus of these units is providing outstanding video quality and industry leading security features, while reducing cost.

The whole NHD-500 series including the new releases are fully compatible with the revolutionary NHD-CTL-PRO controller as well as the NetworkHD Touch app for AV routing and Companion Control app for source control.

The NHD-500 was release during ISE 2023 Barcelona on 31st January and will be available for shipping immediately afterwards. Contact your local sales representative for further information.
