WyreStorm has given its EX-70-G2 entry level HDBaseT extender a specification boost to now include support for 4K UHD and RS-232 control. The change to WyreStorm’s current EX-70-G2 extender model makes it 4K ready and HDCP 2.2 compliant for point-to-point UltraHD HDMI extension with enhanced control options.

Class B HDBaseT handles the reliable delivery of 3840x2160p at 30Hz 8bit 4:4:4 or both 3840x2160p and 4096x2160p at 60Hz 8bit 4:2:0 to 35m/115ft or 1080p 60Hz 48bit to 70m/230ft, with multichannel audio support up to Dolby Atmos and DTS-X.

In terms of control, the model update adds bidirectional RS-232 as well as its previously supported bidirectional IR enabling source or display to be controlled from either end, and CEC passthrough for one-touch on/off commands. Connection to third party IR/control products is also possible by simply connecting a WyreStorm IR link cable.

Two-way PoH power continues to offer integrators flexible PSU-free installation, enabling TX or RX to be remotely powered from either location depending on the needs of the application, which both simplifies installation and reduces potential points of failure in a system.

Version two of the EX-70-G2 also features auto EDID management, all within the same super compact 15mm chassis.

The updated EX-70-G2 begins shipping October 1 at an MSRP of $329 (U.S.).
