Wyrestorm Technologies LLC MX-0808-PP 8 input x 8 output Pro Plus HDBaseT Lite Matrix
At the top of the new Wyrestorm PRO PLUS (PP) matrix range, the MX-0808-PP is an 8 Input by 8 Output matrix, that uses latest classification of HDBaseT “Lite” technology to enable the transmission of full, uncompressed 1080p HD video and HD audio, with discrete two-way IR, RS232, RS485 and LAN from a centralized AV location to displays up to 70m (230ft) using a single Cat5e/6/7 cable.
Unlike competing products, the MX-0808-PP offers highly versatile simultaneous HDMI outputs that can be used either to allow easy connection of local devices, such as AV Receivers or as duplicate outputs that mirror each HDBT Cat5e/6 output to essentially double the number of displays connectable from 8 to 16 if the user wishes.
Alternatively, as all our products are compatible with the entire Wyrestorm range of HD Extender Products, the duplicate HDMI outputs on the MX-0808-PP can also be used for unrivalled connectivity to alternative cable formats, from Coax, Fiber to full HDBT with seamless plug-and-play connectivity.
Furthermore, the transmission card design at the rear of the MX-0808-PP means we have been able to develop customizable modular cards for greater flexibility and configuration by allowing transmitter cards to be simply swapped out and slotted-in for future upgrades or bespoke matrix specification for your initial order so the unit will soon be able to be tailor made for precise project requirements.
Custom card options will include HDMI expansion for cascading matrix models, Stereo Audio Output with digital output, Stereo Audio Input for audio only sources, and VGA input for non-HDMI devices. All cards convert to single cable HDBaseT transmission to be distributed the length of the distribution to display zones.
We think the Pro Plus range offers the installer the perfect combination of features and reliability combined with flexibility of function, and compatibility with all consumer devices and market leading control systems - and all in a stylish compact 2U design with integrated PSU.

As we are not an OEM company, the MX-0808-PP and all our products are designed, developed and tested by our own team of industry leading specialists specifically for our entire range work seamlessly together, and manufactured in our own production facilities so we can maintain full quality control in terms of materials and build.
The MX-0808-PP and its smaller siblings, the 0404, 0606 and soon to be released 0408 matrices were developed as a direct response to feedback received from the industry. We knew a major factor stopping installers embracing HDBaseT technology as an alternative to existing dual cable distribution was the expense and the view that it was an unnecessarily high spec and high-end technology.
With our HDBT Lite range we reduced the feature set of the product to make it more relevant and more affordable for the majority of integrators, while retaining the key benefits of HDBT technology - namely, the single cable transmission containing bidirectional IR, the extended distance and the rock solid signal stability and resistance to interference so as to safeguard installations.
We were one of the first companies to invest in the technology after recognising the immense possibilities of single cable distribution and one of the earliest members of the HDBT Alliance following its creation by Sony, Samsung and LG. As such, the MX-0808-PP represents out innate knowledge and experience of HDBT technology and the benefits of its application.
Basically, it's an installer's dream. You are getting more for less, and you are getting it faster, easier and more reliably to provide significant reductions both in cable infrastructure and installation times, while at the same time future-proofing your installation.
It offers internal resistance to the electromagnetic interference so problematic in typical installations combined with a vastly decreased susceptibility to the adverse effects of inferior cable or the use of patch panels and wall outlets. As such, the inclusion of the MX-0808-PP in a project means far less chance of these factors crippling an installation resulting in wasted time and effort spent on site. It's the closest the industry has come to actual plug-and-play HD distribution.
The MX-0808-PP comes boxed with a comprehensive user manual, with the product page on the Wyrestorm website offering a wealth of detailed documentation and information about the product - from spec sheets to wiring diagrams, cable distance graphics, video demonstrations and downloadable control drivers for all leading control systems, as well as our own control software included with the purchase.
It is an extremely reliable and cost effective solution for distribution of HD content over single cable Cat5e/6 up to distances of 230ft, including discrete 2-way IR control, RS232, RS485, LAN and simultaneous HDMI outputs whilst enjoying the stability of HDBT transmission technology.
The MX-0808-PP typically enjoys hassle-free installation straight out of the box, but as problem-solving is part of any modern installation, the unit comes equipped with EDID management with adjustable DIP switch at the rear of the unit to physically encourage communication between devices should handshake issues be apparent.
