Cambridge, UK, May 2014: Adder Technology, the high performance keyboard, video and mouse (KVM) specialist, will be launching the newest advances to its AdderLink Infinity range of high performance KVM solutions at BroadcastAsia 2014. New products include the AdderLink Infinity 1002 digital KVM extender, CCS4-Pro switch and X-DVI Pro DL extender.
The advances to the range deliver added functionality to applications making use of high performance KVM technology, such as pro-AV, broadcasting, post-production, command and control, and industrial automation.
The IP-based AdderLink Infinity 1002 features dual port functionality which adds redundant network operation and the opportunity for network teaming. The extender’s single link, single head make it ideal for use in video intensive applications, such as broadcasting and post-production, while the added redundancy is a critical requirement in high-reliability environments such as command and control.
“The AdderLink Infinity 1002 is based on the 1000 and as such incorporates all the same features, such as video encoding, as well as enhanced functionality like the a port for fibre connection which ensures that signals can be extended over great distances, often several miles,” says John Halksworth, senior product manager, Adder Technology.
The new Adder CCS4-Pro can more easily be integrated into an operator’s desk. It is an ergonomic solution that assists in eliminating desk clutter and provides an intuitive way for users to switch between disparate systems. In addition, the CCS4-Pro features a network port that has inherent benefits for remote access and management of devices.
“With the presence of the network port users can easily see which port is in use, in real time, and switch remotely if needed. The presence of the port also means that firmware upgrades can be carried out in a matter of minutes, which is a distinct benefit for environments that feature tens, if not hundreds of these devices,” says Halksworth.
The third new product, the AdderLink X-DVI Pro DL, now incorporates full dual link resolution capability up to 2560x1600. It can transmit a dual link video stream along with audio over a single CATx cable, up to 50 metres. The extender also offers USB True Emulation and can be used in a multitude of applications.
Adder Technology will also be showcasing its 4K capabilities at the show, with the AdderLink XD522 DisplayPort extender, able to extend 4K signals. In addition, the KVM specialist will demonstrate the latest firmware upgrade to the AdderLink Infinity solution. The stand will demonstrate IP based high performance KVM solutions that add performance, flexibility and reliability to the entire broadcast workflow chain.
