Product Features

Perfect digital video, real time control: Using a spatially-lossless encoding system, with 1:1 pixel mapping, ADDERLink INFINITY provides pixel perfect and color accurate video with no artefacts. The digital video you receive is the same as the digital video leaving the remote computer.

Single CATx cable or fiber with immunity from interference: From the outset we designed ADDERLink INFINITY units around a highly robust signaling method. This vital core asset is what gives you the freedom to use the full variety of cable links that you typically find within an average structured cabling system. The result is that you can achieve reliable links, regardless of whether the cables are CAT5e, CAT6 or CAT7. The ADDERLink INFINITY dual also offers the option of up to 10km distances with fiber.

Unlimited extension distances: Extension distance is not limited to a single 100 meter cable length - If you need to extend further, simply add a 1GbE network device to achieve an additional 100 meters. This can be repeated many times. The units are also fitted with SFP cages to accept fiber optic transceivers which enable much greater extension distances.

Support for Mac Pro® (Dithered Video): Some graphics cards use a technique called dithering to give the appearance of a deeper color depth than is actually the case. As a result, dithering can significantly increase the normal video data rates. ALIF2002T has a feature called Magic Eye which supports dithering without allowing it to degrade overall link performance.

USB 2.0 with class control: Enables connection of USB devices from mice and keyboards through to graphics tablets, jog shuttles, joysticks and 3D explorers, alongside mass storage devices. For applications where security is of high importance, the system has the ability to disable the use of non-HID devices, meaning there is no need to physically block USB ports to prevent the use of mass storage devices.

EDID management: Intelligent EDID management allows the true characteristics of the monitor to be passed back to the computer. This ensures perfect video display without the additional configuration.
Plug and Play: ADDERLink INFINITY extender devices are delivered in a zero config state so you can plug them in and start working on them straight away. There is no need for drivers or software to be installed.

Redundant network operation: The units are able to detect whether the network is in operation and can automatically change to its second network port if it detects a failure.

ADDERLink INFINITY Matrix: With the addition of ADDERLink INFINITY management system (AIM) you can turn multiple point-to-point extenders into a truly scalable digital KVM matrix system that allows any workstation to link with any computer connected to the network. See the AIM datasheet for details.

 

Specification

DVI-D - Digital Visual Interface (digital only): The system supports either two Single Link DVI-D resolutions to a maximum of 1920 x 1200 @ 60Hz or one Dual Link to a maximum of 2560 x 1600 @ 60Hz.

USB 2.0 with class control: Supports USB2.0 devices (low, full and high speed). Security feature allows the blocking of non HID devices. Isochronous devices are not supported (e.g. USB audio or video devices).

Digital stereo audio: The system transfers analog stereo audio (Line In/Line Out) via digital signaling between any transmitter/receiver pair. Additionally, the audio output of any transmitter can be multicast to many receivers.

RS232: RS232 can be passed between the units to a maximum baud rate of 115,200. RS232 is a point to point connection technology and cannot be multicast.

Operating Systems and Software Compatibility Software: All commonly known software and operating systems including Windows®, Linux®, macOS®, and Sun OS.
