Looking for advice & recommendations regarding Wyrestorm vs. Just add Power for HDMI over IP? I have 2 jobs coming up, 1 residential 1 commercial. 2-4 inputs, 4-6 displays. Any advice would be appreciated.

Mark - Welcome. You may get some high level input on your query, but you will likely get much more useful info if you can furnish more details: specific sources, display resolution, importance of image quality, audio handling requirements, usage scenarios, control system, price sensitivity, etc.
If it's not simple, it's not sufficiently advanced.

We use Crestron for this type of application. However, if we didn't, I would recommend Snap MOIP over the other brands. The level of support you might need would be available from them. I can't speak to the other brands.

if not crestron, Just ADD Power is your ONLY option if you want dead nuts reliability and infinite scalability and support is second to none.

Not to mention its stupid simple to deploy.

Thanks, I'm not a Crestron dealer. I do have an account with Snap AV but have had issues with their Binary products in the past. Maybe the HD over IP devices are better. Guess I'm hesitant to find out the hard way.

Thanks for the response, was basically just looking for feedback about these 2 product lines, not necessarily help with designing my jobs. The jobs are fairly simple systems. (comcast & roku out to 3 TV's) (4 comcast boxes out to 6 TVs) both with URC MX home pro controllers

Does URC have an IP module in MX Home Pro to control either of those products?

I know you said you did not need design advise... But Roku's are dirt cheap. You can put a Roku on everyone of those TVs. And you only need a few more cable boxes to cover all the TVs as well. WAY cheaper than installing a distributed video system over IP for that. Other benefits = less points of failure, simpler to use, etc.
Distributed video has really become a niche for special use circumstances, rather than the go to these days.

JAP is tried and true. Itís also very easy to deploy. Itís even easier if you buy from kevin at Blackwire, as his team will configure it for you.
I have zero idea if your control system of choice will be compatible or even a good choice.
Talk to Kevin before you buy, he will be able to answer your questions.

I checked the mxhomepro programming and there isn't a JustAddPower driver in there.  You'd be best to consider using Total Control for jobs like these.

I deployed a JAP system in a car dealership about 6 years ago initially. Then they went ahead and built another building adding to the audio and video system. We expanded the JAP system to accommodate the video system expansion. All went smooth, and the JAP team helped out every step of the way. Not to mention Blackwire as well with their Savant profile creator.

Recently one of the Luxul switches failed in the main building. Ordered a new switch. Contacted JAP tech support, installed the new switch, then they remoted into my computer, and in about 3-5 minutes had it all up and running again.

There is another reason to use JAP, the kick ass concerts they put on at Cedia. Great company, even better support.

Any solutions out there that will do HDR at 60Hz? I tried the Xantech video over IP and only does 4k at 24Hz; Netfix HDR didn't work with any of the EDID settings I tried. I just installed the Roku behind the TV but I am curious to know if such a solution exists should I ever need it in the future for Dolby Atmos, DTS-MA etc.

On a related note, any HDMI to Cat6 solutions that will do eARC back to the new HDMI 2.1 receivers?

I've got two deployed MoiP systems.

Do you use the Transmitter/Receiver pairings settings? Any time I have a power loss or reboot the pairings settings are lost and I have to redo them.

I've notified Snap about it but they just ignored me.
