Adder Extender First to Send USB, DDC and DVI over single CAT6

 

CAMBRIDGE, UK - Feb 2nd, 2009

Adder, a leading developer of KVM switches, extenders and KVM over IP solutions, today announced the availability of the ADDERLink X-DVI. The ADDERLink X-DVI is the world's first extender to send both USB, lossless DVI and DDC EDID signals over the same CAT6 cable. What's more, Adder's DVI KVM solutions will be delivered at a price comparable to current professional analogue extension solutions.

The X-DVI is ideal for users that require superior, no compromise video quality. Industries such as medical imaging, broadcasting, digital signage, graphic design, drafting and animation need to be confident that what is shown on screen is exactly what the workstation intends. The only real way to achieve this is via a digital medium such as DVI. The ADDERLink X-DVI will support the extension of USB keyboards and mice and no compromise DVI over distances up to 165 ft.

Adder have broken down some serious technological barriers with this product. The X-DVI achieves full frequency clock rate for single link DVI connections which means you can extend any resolution within the single link DVI range. As an example, resolutions of 1920 x 1200 @ 60Hz can be achieved without the need to reduce data, frequency or colour depth in any way. To achieve bidirectional USB communication alongside full no compromise DVI and all across a single CAT 6 cable is quite remarkable, and something no other manufacturer has been able to achieve. Delivering this kind of quality and functionality at a price point more reminiscent of analogue extension devices is certain to raise some eyebrows, but for Adder, it's all about devising the best way possible to solve a problem.

A true plug and play solution, the ADDERLink X-DVI feeds back extended profile DDC EDID information from the screen so that the video card is always set up perfectly. The ADDERLink X-DVI is fully flash upgradeable; future proofing the product and protecting the customer's hardware investment. Furthermore, the X-DVI can be interface powered at the computer end avoiding the need for additional power sockets and reducing cable clutter. For video only applications, an optional power supply can also be purchased.

The ADDERLink X-DVI is available through local distribution partners around the world. Additional product information can be found at http://www.adder.com/uk/products/adderlink_x_dvi.aspx. The ADDERLink X-DVI will carry a list price of GBP 445.
