NEW Adder Command and Control switch preview at ISE 2017

Cambridge, United Kingdom 16 January 2017: Adder Technology, the IP-based high performance KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) specialist, will be demonstrating new innovations at this year’s Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) event. In addition to its existing product range that brings the benefits of IP-based high performance KVM to organisations across different industries, the highlight at the Adder stand (10-P122) will be the new Adder CCS-PRO8 command and control switch.

The new Adder CCS-PRO8 switch will be previewed to show visitors for the first time and will be demonstrated on stand alongside other products including the four-port variant, Adder CCS-PRO4, the Adder RED PSU power distribution unit with redundancy, the newly launched Adder XDIP and the company’s flagship ADDERLink INFINITY range.

The Adder CCS-PRO8 allows operators to control up to eight machines across eight displays using just one mouse and keyboard. It is ideal for improving ergonomics in a control setting where space is at a premium or management of multiple computers from one station is required. Featuring FreeFlow technology, the Adder CCS-PRO8 enables users to move from one display to the next simply by moving the mouse across screen borders. The switch was developed as a result of user feedback and is much anticipated by Adder Technology’s customer base.

The ADDERLink XDIP — a high performance, IP-based AV extender with USB — will also feature in the innovation showcase. The device enables remote access to critical computing and flexibly extends the desktop experience, and forms part of Adder Technology’s easy-to-install ADDERLink KVM and AV extension portfolio.

Both the Adder CCS-PRO8 and ADDERLink XDIP will be available later this year in Q3 and are ideal for use in industries with a strong need for command and control connectivity solutions.

In addition to technical demonstrations on stand, Adder Technology’s Jamie Adkin, VP Sales EMEA,  will be presenting in the Commercial Solutions Theatre at the event, delving into the future of the control room and the role that technology plays.

“The ideal control room environment is one that is a combination and integration of the right technologies, furniture and lighting. The aim is to  ensure that operators are productive, efficient and can make mission critical decisions based upon accurate information. We’ll be looking at current and future trends within the command and control and how each contribute to making the control room more effective and users more productive, whilst reducing risk,” says Adkin.

David Watts, managing director, CCD, an ergonomics and design agency, says: “The control room is a high-pressure environment where mission critical decisions are made. As a result, it has to be a space that is comfortable, ergonomically sound and featuring the right mix of technologies to ensure operators can function at optimal levels.

“This is something that will be explored at ISE, but its importance is reinforced with the theme topping agendas at other global events, including the successful 2016 Control Room Summit held in Dubai, and its follow-on event later this year. The Control Room Summit brings together experts in all complementary fields related to control room design in a collaborative space where critical elements are discussed in-depth against the backdrop of industry change and experience.”
