Product Features

Video performance

 Industry leading resolutions of 1600x1200 are achievable at 200m/650ft and 1280x1024 at 300m/1000ft.

Video compensation

The ADDERLink X2-Gold applies a high level of signal compensation that allows for a greatly increased range of very smooth and fine adjustments.

Emulated DDC

Unless an extender actively supports DDC some well-known high performance video cards cannot be used at high resolutions. The ADDERLink X2-Gold fully supports DDC.

Brightness control

The ADDERLink X2-Gold offers its own brightness correction to ensure that the image is crisp, clear and bright, regardless of the distance.

Audio

Digital audio transmission delivers high fidelity; click less stereo audio for speakers and microphones.

Integrated DeSkew

The ADDERLink X2-Gold has integrated skew correction with a 300MHz bandwidth, meaning that it is more than powerful enough to counteract the negative effects of the skew.

Rack options

Both transmitter and receiver units can be used stand-alone or up to 16 units can be mounted into a 2U chassis.
