Product Features

Video performance

Industry leading resolutions of 1600 x 1200 are achievable up to 100m (330ft), 1900 x 1440 up to 50m (165ft).

Video compensation

The ADDERLink X-100 applies signal compensation that allows for smooth and fine adjustments providing great video quality up to 100m.

Emulated DDC

USB Emulation 

When using an X-100 pair to extend a CPU with a USB keyboard and mouse interface, it is ensured that the keyboard and mouse are continually emulated for maximum availability and essential functionality such

as country code reporting for Sun CPUs.

The ADDERLink X-100s offer their own brightness correction to ensure images are crisp, clear and bright.
