The WyreStorm Essentials Thunder System is a simple, yet powerful and expandable HDMI distribution platform. Like a traditional matrix, video receivers connect to central video hubs with up to 100m/328′ of Cat5e. As many as 96 video receivers can be simultaneously connected to distribute video to displays via HDMI. Connect up to 24x 1080p HDMI and HDCP-encrypted video sources to Thunder’s main chassis. A transmission-card-based approach limits the initial cost outlay, meaning the system can be extended without having to pay upfront for unused inputs. Assigning each receiver an ID using simple DIP switches is the only step that is required. Control is achieved via a preconfigured WebUI that is set and ready to go. With pricing for a 24×96 matrix at less than half of an AV-over-IP system, Thunder is sure to make some big noise.
