Product Features

Video performance

Industry leading resolutions of 1600 x 1200 are achievable at 200m/650ft and 1280x1024 at 300m/1000ft.

Video compensation

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

Brightness control

The ADDERLink X2 MultiScreen offers its own brightness correction to ensure that the image is crisp, clear and bright, regardless of the distance and is individually selectable per video head.


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

Integrated DeSkew

The ADDERLink X2 MultiScreen has integrated skew correction with a 300MHz bandwidth, meaning that it is more than powerful enough to correct the negative effects of RGB colour skew.

Emulated DDC

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

Rack options

Both transmitter and receiver units can be used stand-alone or multiple units can be mounted into a X-Series 2U chassis.
