ADDERLink INFINITY Manager - A.I.M.

DISCONTINUED - This product is no longer manufactured
This product is now discontinued, but details are still available in our 'Legacy Products' section for information only.

Support is available to existing customers only.

We recomend the latest version for new projects - AdderLink Infinity Manager (A.I.M.).

ADDERLink INFINITY transmitter and receiver units allow multiple remote users to access host computers in a very flexible manner. Such flexibility requires management and coordination - that is where ADDERLink INFINITY Manager (A.I.M.) becomes vital.
The A.I.M. management server is a control suite which transforms AdderLink Infinity extenders into a digital matrix solution. Using standard IP network switches it is possible to route any user station to any computer attached to the network without any compromises to HD video quality or control. It also allows co-operative sharing of computers and multicasting of video to any destination.
  • Intuitive, multi-lingual user interface
  • Multiple switching methods
  • User access rights
  • Full audit trail
  • Easy management
  • Open API for third party control

Product Codes

ALIF-AIM; ALIF-AIM-8; ALIF-AIM-16

Easy matrix setup

Using Zero Configuration networking, A.I.M. automatically obtains the MAC addresses of extender devices as they are attached to the network. The administrator allocates IP addresses, names and locations so that devices are easy to identify, configure and control.

Administration dashboard

Accessed via a web browser, the dashboard gives the current overview of system connections and users. Tabs allow you to navigate between settings and device or user sub-menus.

User access management and audit trails

Administrators can manage access rights to each device on a user by user basis either manually through the web browser or automatically using Active Directory. Reports showing the history of devices, user logins and device connections can be viewed and exported to a CSV file.

Control Channel and Presets connections

A.I.M. can be used to make connections between any pair of transmitter and receiver devices centrally from within the management system. Using Presets, a list of pre-defined connections, multiscreen, video wall or signage setups can be activated with a single click. 

Centralized firmware upgrades

As well as managing its own firmware upgrade, A.I.M. manages the upgrade of each device on the network and can deploy firmware to hundreds of devices at the same time, meaning a system-wide upgrade takes only a few minutes.

On screen display at each user station

Users login and choose channel connections from an intuitive OSD similar to that of a Digital TV. Users can also use Presets to change channels for multiple screens across multiple receivers.

Favorites and hotkey switching

Each user can select their favorite channels within the OSD and allocate a hotkey for fast switching between channels. 

Choice of connection modes

Administrators can choose to give users the ability to connect in three modes: View only, Shared or Exclusive. Each permitted mode is then made available within the OSD. 

Fast video and USB switching

The video switching time between computers is less than one second with up to a further two seconds to connect the USB to support its full capabilities.

Open API for third party control systems

Adder publishes a simple API structure to allow easy integration with other third party control systems supplied by companies such as HRS, AMX, Crestron or MediaLon.

Remote OSD   

Enables users to push content to any screen on the network to which they have permission.

International language support

The OSD now supports 12 international languages and fonts, including Chinese (simplified and traditional), Japanese, Korean, Russian and 7 European languages. Localized help menus are also included.

International keyboard selection

The user desks can select different keyboard configurations to suite their keyboard requirements.

Channels

Considered as a Virtual Transmitter, a channel may combine Video, Audio and USB from different transmitters as a single source. Ideal where audio alerts or mixed video sources are required.

Multicasting

Network multicasting allows the system to share video simultaneously from one transmitter to an unlimited number of receivers. Suitable for signage, monitoring and sharing of desktops.

USB Sharing

USB sharing allows multiple users to connect to and control a single computer at the same time. Each transmitter can report 12 unique USB devices (identified by VID/PID codes) but will merge devices with the same ID to allow many more.

System backups

Backups of the database can be saved internally, externally or emailed automatically. Automatic updates can be scheduled on an hourly, daily or weekly basis. 

LDAP integration

To help ease setup, the system has an LDAP interface so users and passwords from other systems can easily be imported.

Refresh protocol

The A.I.M. interface is continually refreshed so the information given is always up to date. All changes made to device settings and user access rights are made instantly.
