Product Features

  • Dual-head 4K screens over a single link: the ALIF4000 can deliver two 4K60 screens over a single link
  • IP-based: use your existing standard 10GbE networking infrastructure to extend or matrix your computing resources to your users. Supports teaming for network resilience and redundancy
  • Perfect digital video: using the same encoding system as the other products in the ADDERLink INFINITY range, the digital video is spatially lossless, with 1:1 pixel mapping, ensuring that the digital video you receive is the same as the one leaving your remote computer
  • Backwards compatibility: the ALIF4000 can integrate seamlessly into your existing ADDERLink INFINITY setup, replacing or working in conjunction with your existing ALIF endpoints 
  • Digital KVM matrix: by the addition of ADDERLink INFINITY Management system (A.I.M.) you can turn multiple point to point extenders into a matrix system that allows any workstation to connect to any computer connected to the network. See the A.I.M. datasheet for details
  • Audio capability: analog audio (Line In, Line Out) to support headsets and microphones
  • EDID management: the system has intelligent EDID management to either allow the true characteristics of the monitor to be passed back to the computer, or controlled resolutions to be imposed
  • Plug and Play: the ADDERLink INFINITY range is delivered in a zero config state so they work as soon as they are connected, without the need for drivers or software
  • USB True Emulation: USB2.0 enables connection to any USB human interface device from mice and keyboards through to graphics tablets, jog shuttles, joysticks and 3D explorers
