Quick Overview : WyreStorm EXP-CON-4K-DD 4K Downscaler and HD Upscaler

WyreStorm EXP-CON-4K-DD

4K Downscaler and HD Upscaler

UltraHD may have arrived but not everyone will be ditching their existing HD screens in favor of 4K overnight. As such, the ability to support a combination of 4K and 1080p HD displays within the same distribution is an important consideration, especially given the resolution conflicts that effect systems including screens of different capabilities.

Placed between a display and a source device, this EXP-CON-4K-DD video scaler and digital audio converter (DAC) is designed to adjust resolution and audio from an incoming HDMI source and scale output to a level compatible with display capabilities.

The EXP-CON-4K-DD represents the ideal solution to the growing challenge of how to simply and reliably accommodate both HD and 4K sources and displays within a multi-zone residential or commercial distribution.

WyreStorm EXP-CON-4K-DD

4K Downscaler and HD Upscaler


The WyreStorm EXP-CON-4K-DD is an in-line audio video scaler that sits between a display receiver and screen at a display zone to automatically scale up 1080/24p HD video content to UltraHD resolutions up to 4096x2160/30p for viewing on 4K displays or scale back UHD 4K/30p transmissions to 1080/24p if that's all the display is capable of.

Furthermore, the addition of Dolby downmix to stereo PCM functionality in the EXP-CON-4K-DD means multichannel audio up to 5.1 can be distributed to zones that support and automatically scaled down to compatible stereo PCM audio without sacrificing the integrity of the transmission.

After examining source transmission and maximum resolution of the connected display, the EXP-CON-4K-DD can either pass-through audio and video signals for compatible devices, upscale HD content to UltraHD resolution for connection to the latest 4K screens or downscale UltraHD content to to 1080p for viewing on existing HD displays. Additionally, the EXP-CON-4K-DD Dolby Digital audio downmixing to stereo PCM enables video signal passthorugh and scaling functions whilst downmixing audio should the screen not support multichannel audio, with audio also extractable via the 3.5MM jack port.

Effectively, the combination of a system comprising of an WyreStorm UltraHD 4K matrix switcher with EXP-CON-4K-DD scaler at display zones not only nullifies the threat of disparity between multiple screens of different resolution capabilities whilst maintaining source resolution throughout the distribution, it also ensures that the project can grow with the needs of the client by enabling UltraHD screens to be added as and when the application demands.
