Albany, N.Y.-based WyreStorm collaborated with Sealoc, prominent in outdoor AV Solutions including military-grade displays, digital signage, smart TVs, direct-view LEDs and outdoor audio. Together, the two launched an AV-over-IP weatherproof receiver, the NHD-110-RX-S.
WyreStorm & Sealoc Collaborate on Weatherproof Solution
Per a statement, Sealoc’s proprietary Weatherloc technology provides advanced weatherproofing services for various electronic items across different markets. These include the OEM, commercial and consumer spectrum. WyreStorm thus started using Weatherloc technology with the NHD-110-RX-S. Here, it protected the delicate and sensitive electronics and the receiver surfaces with Sealoc’s exclusive Weatherloc anti-corrosion, waterproofing conformal nano-coating process.
WyreStorm adds that the new weatherproof receiver comes as major news for live events, outdoor installation markets and harsh environments signal transmission and distribution. The company then attributes this to the gap in the industry for AV-over-IP solutions.
“We’re very pleased here at Sealoc”, says Rick Webster, president of Sealoc, “to have created this partnership with Wyrestorm. Wyrestorm has a stellar brand in our industry and makes high-quality, durable products. Coupling Wyrestorm’s products with our unique weatherproofing technology allows Wyrestorm to introduce the first ever weatherproof AV-over-IP extender. Pushing the technology envelope is part of both of our company’s DNA and we’re excited to work with a company like Wyrestorm.”
Features of the NHD-100
The NHD-110-RX-S comes with 1080p@60Hz video resolution, H.264 decoding capability and 2ch PCM audio out. Thus, it is a solid tried and tested receiver, per the company. WyreStorm also deems the weatherproof receiver as an industry favorite for long distance, high resolution and reliable AV distribution applications.
The newly weather-treated and outdoor-rated NetworkHD receivers will make its debut at ISE 2022 in Barcelona. The company plans to provide live demonstrations on its show stand.
“It was a no-brainer for WyreStorm to partner with Sealoc,” states Andrew Herron, product development director at WyreStorm. He continues, “NetworkHD’s strong presence in hospitality and live events provided the perfect opportunity to create a solution that brings value to the market and our customers….”
Additionally Sealoc’s eco-friendly vision and solutions align with WyreStorm’s environmental mission. According to the company, it aims to minimize impact on the natural ecosystem. Sealoc’s Weatherloc nano-coating solutions are also ecologically and human friendly. Furthermore, the ROHS and REACH compliance ensures that it does not have hazardous chemicals that can impact human health or the environment.
