Our take on the WyreStorm HDBaseT™ EX-70-H2X by Crutchfield's Kramer Crane
Send 4K video to another room without a long HDMI cable
The WyreStorm HDBaseT EX-70-H2X is a great choice for sending an HD or Ultra HD signal across a long distance. This package includes a transmitter and a receiver unit, which together send audio and video from one point to another through CAT-6 Ethernet cable.
These units support HDCP 2.2, video resolutions up to 4K, and HDR-encoded content. They're ideal for connecting an A/V receiver to an overhead projector or wall-mounted TV without using an ultra-long HDMI cable.

HDBaseT Extender w/ 5Play Compliance: For extension of 4K UltraHD and HDR transmissions over long distances in residential or commercial applications, the EX-70-H2X features Class A HDBaseT technology with 5Play compliance for distribution of 4K UHD/HDR video, HD multichannel audio, bidirectional IR/RS-232, Ethernet Pass-Through, and two-way PoH to remotely power either transmitter or receiver up to 230' (or 1080p up to 328') - all along a single Cat6 cable.
UHD 4K/HDR Compatible: With a revised chipset ensuring compatibility with current and future UHD source devices, including those outputting 4K HDR content where available, the EX-70-H2X supports the latest UltraHD and HDMI 2.0 video standards, as well as HDCP 2.2 compliance, for transmission up to 4K UHD @30hz 4:4:4 24bit / @60hz 4:2:0 8bit, and 4K HDR @24Hz 4:2:0 10bit BT.2020. It also support 3D video up to 1080p.
- Video Resolution via Ethernet: 1920x1080p @60Hz 12-bit (328') or 16-bit (230'), 3840x2160p @30Hz 4:4:4 8-bit (230') or @24Hz 4:20: HDR 10-bit (230'), 4096x2160p @60Hz 8-bit 4:2:0 (230')
- Video Resolution via HDMI: 1920x1080p @60Hz 12-bit (50') or 16-bit (23'), 3840x2160p @30Hz 4:4:4 8-bit (23') or @24Hz 4:20: HDR 10-bit (9.8'), 4096x2160p @60Hz 8-bit 4:2:0 (23') or @60Hz 8-bit 4:4:4 (23').
2CH PCM & Multichannel Audio Support: In terms of audio, the EX-70-H2X supports 2ch PCM audio and multi-channel audio up to 7.1ch (including DTS-X and Dolby Atmos).
PoH (Power-over-HDBaseT): PoH (Power-over-HDBaseT) enables power to be passed along the cable along with transmissions from a POH-enabled transmission device to power receivers at display zones without the need for local mains power for greater flexibility and convenience during installation, as well as improved energy efficiency compared to a permanent mains connection.
Note: The EX-70-H2X can supply power from the transmitter to the receiver using PoH on the same category cable that transmits audio and video. The included power must be connected to the transmitter in order to power the receiver. Should distance of the category cable or other factors prevent PoH from being used, connect an 18V DC 1A power supply to both devices. Additional power supplies may be purchased from WyreStorm.
Ethernet Pass-Through: The WyreStorm EX-70-H2X features Ethernet (RJ-45) Pass-Through ports for connection to a local area network and/or network device.
IR/Serial Control: The WyreStorm EX-70-H2X can transmit discreet wide-band, two-way IR control signal and serial control commands together within HDMI signal over a single Cat5e/6. Each unit features one IR RX 3.5mm port, one IR TX 3.5mm port, and a 3-Pin, RS-232 connector. Two IR emitters and two IR receivers are included in the box.
Note: Serial control via RS-232 only supported when connected to a compatible HDBaseT transmission device with routable RS-232.
Firmware Updates: Firmware updates can be done through the unit's 3-Pin, RS-232 connector.
Mounting Options: The EX-70-H2X offers a compact design that allows for easy placement behind a TV or display (mounting brackets included).
