Hyperion: intelligent gigabit network switch

The perfect switch for any project, anywhere.

This touring-grade device has been designed for life on the road, allowing for the handling and routing of unicast, multicast and broadcast packets with an elegant and intuitive setup.

With features including ENTTEC’s peace-of-mind Redundancy Looping, popular fibre connectivity (SFP and/or opticalCON) and an intuitive, fully-configurable web interface, the Hyperion effectively prioritises professional lighting protocols and is compatible with Art-Net, sACN, MA-Net, PTPv1, PTPv2 and any other TCP/IP usage. Of course, it can also make tidy work of your audio or AV signals too.

The arrival of the Hyperion makes ENTTEC a truly end-to-end industry brand, and offers just a glimpse into what is to come.

The price is right.

Most budget network switches don’t offer popular industry connectors such as powerCON or opticalCON, while those that do are usually priced through the roof.

With the Hyperion, ENTTEC has come up with a happy compromise. We set out to create an Ethernet switch that ticks all the vital boxes for a productive working life on the road, but one that also wouldn’t break the bank.

We’ve noticed some significantly more expensive switches out there on the market, often with minimal or zero additional functionality, but we’d rather see you put that extra cash towards something more enjoyable. Because it is possible to have your cake and eat it too.

To opticalCON, or not to opticalCON?

Unlike most high-end network switches where the only fibre option is to have expensive opticalCON ports fitted as standard, the Hyperion retains trusted SFP transceiver technology across all models for optical support, keeping costs down by a significant margin for users not requiring opticalCON (in which case, our classic HP1-81 would be the Hyperion for you).

However, if you do want opticalCON, of course you can have opticalCON!

Choose from our flagship pairing with either a front (HP1-82F) or rear-mounted connector (HP1-82R), and you’ll be sorted.

Features

 

Touring network switch

With industry-standard powerCON, etherCON and opticalCON ports for secure device connection, the HP1’s rugged construction means that it’s built for life on the open road.

Standard 19″ rack size

No messing around with awkward wings and add-ons to make it fit. Simply slot into a standard touring rack space.

Easy webpage configuration

Intuitive web-based configuration. Use your favorite browser, click a few buttons and you’re done. Managing a switch has never been easier.

Prioritises major lighting protocols

Hyperion was designed with professional lighting protocols in mind and is compatible with Art-Net, sACN, MA-Net, PTPv1, PTPv2 and other TCP/IP usages. Multicast or broadcast, this switch can take it all.

Redundancy backbone link

For peace of mind, Ports 7 and 8 act as a redundancy link. If ever one link fails or drops out, the other link will instantly take over. No configuration required.

EtherCON ports

The speed of etherCON ports can be managed, and are user-configurable (up-to 1 Gbps). Detailed statistics for each port is available to review on the web interface.
