WyreStorm has released the EX-100-4K-PRO, a 4K HDCP2.2 HDBaseT 2.0 extender with dual USB, dual Ethernet, two-way control and two-way PoH.

The EX-100-4K-PRO supports transmissions of 4K@60Hz with chroma subsampling rates of 4:2:0 to 100m/328ft or 1080p@60Hz with 48bit color to 150ft/492ft. It features 5Play compliance for distribution of video, audio, two-way IR/Serial control, power and Ethernet along a single Cat6 cable.  

It is designed for commercial applications in education and corporate sectors.  Both EX-100‐4K-PRO transmitter and receiver offer connection for USB local host control and remote host control over HDBaseT via USB transfer for connections of PC source to connected projector to smart whiteboard and back again.  

Two-way PoH allows either transmitter or receiver to be remotely powered by the other and both units also feature dual Ethernet ports for 10/100 LAN connection of up to three devices per extender pair. The addition of USB 2.0 pass-through offers KVM functionality while enabling full data transfer capabilities for the connection of portable storage devices.  Either transmitter or receiver may be connected to the host or dual devices, with DIP switch management allowing for setting USB direction control, long cable mode and firmware updates to the units.

The EX-100-4K-PRO supports 2ch PCM and 7.1 DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD. Audio embed on the transmitter and de-embed on the receiver is included via 3.5mm jack connectivity with analogue audio breakout also able to be directed bi-directionally due to an additional two-way S/PDIF audio pass-through that allows digital audio signals to be sent and received at either end.
