Firmware release A.I.M. V4.7 – What You Need To Know

The ADDERLink INFINITY Manager (A.I.M.) transforms the ADDERLink INFINITY extenders into a matrix system, centrally coordinated and controlled. Using the A.I.M., the administrator can manage both the transmitter and receiver units, but also configure access rights and gather a full audit train through an intuitive, multilingual user interface. “Does it get any better?” I hear you say. With the release of our new firmware, A.I.M. V4.7, it does. Here’s the breakdown.

Support for ALIF100T

The new release enables the ADDERLink INFINITY Manager to recognize and connect to the latest addition to the range, the ALIF100T. The world’s smallest KVM transmitter, it takes up Zero U in your rack and consumes significantly less power, whilst maintaining all the benefits of our High Performance IP-based ADDERLink INFINITY transmitters: pixel perfect video and high speed USB. And all under 1GB!

Added flexibility to the OSD

The ADDERLink INFINITY range benefits from a quick & intuitive switching through the multilingual OSD. Users have personal logins and can choose channel connections and presets, within predefined access rights set by the administrator.  

A new addition to the OSD, introduced with firmware V4.7, is the ability to associate an ADDER C-USB-LAN receiver with an ADDERLink INFINITY receiver, and switch the devices using the OSD. The C-USB-LAN is a High Performance USB extender that can transmit USB2.0 over a single CATx cable or via 1GbE IP network.

Now you can create a high-speed USB matrix in parallel with your High Performance KVM network using the same network infrastructure & shared management. That will allow you to use web cams, audio headset, pen drives and colour grading tools such as Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve.

Additional features

Other benefits of the firmware release include the addition of 3440x1440@60Hz to the EDID list; the ability to have multiple DNS server IP addresses; the manual editing of email addresses to overcome issues with exchange 2010 servers not complying to RFC2821.

If a primary A.I.M. unit has failed, the new firmware release issues a warning to users via the OSD, which improves the user experience by keeping them informed, and facilitates troubleshooting for the admin.
