Adder showcases new HDMI extender products at InfoComm 2013
Adder Corporation, the connectivity solutions experts, will be showing new products for the audio visual markets at InfoComm 2013, taking place at the Orange County Convention Center, Florida on June 8-14.
Exhibiting on booth 4115, Adder is launching its ALDV100 range of HDMI point to point and point to multi-point extenders with a live demonstration. The new technology can intelligently interrogate its own network to determine whether specific content is being displayed on connected screens. This enables advertising networks to offer payment structures based on an accurate proof of display (P.O.D.) basis, as well as save $100s on maintenance as display errors can be inspected remotely over an IP link.
With a 50 meter (150ft) extension distance, rollout using this technology is a wonderfully simple procedure. Being line powered, once the transmitter is connected, no additional power cabling is required at the receiver points. This makes the ALDV100 a perfect choice when upgrading existing systems as it negates the need to install additional power points into your signage environment. The point to point system supports HDCP and full EDID pass through ensuring continuous correct operation. As a professional signage technology, the ALDV100 is designed to work silently and continuously to deliver faultless audio and video 24/7.
The 4-way transmitter unit, ALDV104T also features automatic failover, allowing two digital playout machines to be connected and automatically switched if the video output from one unit should fail. This is vitally important when 100 per cent uptime is required for professional applications.
Also being launched at the show is the Adder XD522 – a dual-head, point to point, DisplayPort extender that can support dual screens or dual link screens up to 100 meters away with an S/FTP CATx cable. It will also support a single 60Hz 1920x1080 screen across 150 meters over a CAT5e cable and provides uncompressed, high resolution video over a high-speed USB.
There will be a live demonstration of the AdderLink Infinity dual VNC, a high-performance keyboard, video and mouse (KVM) server that can be accessed remotely via IP with a VNC viewer and/or simultaneously with an AdderLink Infinity receiver. Its base feature set is the same as the AdderLink Infinity dual, the world’s most advanced KVM matrix.
Tim Conway, VP of Adder Corporation, said: “The AV market, particularly those companies specializing in digital signage, are under continued pressure to make cost efficiencies and differentiate their offer. At Adder, we recognise this and are continually looking to improve connectivity solutions for the AV market. We already offer the AV industry the only real-time IP based KVM Matrix solution on the market, in the AdderLink Infinity. The launch of the XD522 and the HDMI extenders expand the capabilities of the Adder offering and reaffirm our commitment to providing pixel perfect video extension and connectivity.”
