Adder Technology, the IP-based, high performance KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) specialist, will be demonstrating its highly-acclaimed ADDERLink INFINITY 100T (ALIF100T) at InfoComm 2018 as the Zero U, USB-powered KVM transmitter continues to exceed its anticipated success following the product’s launch earlier this year.
Complimenting Adder’s existing ADDERLink Infinity range with a Zero U option, the ALIF100T simplifies the upgrading process of KVM systems from analogue to digital, while freeing up crucial rack space. As the world’s smallest KVM transmitter, it is proving increasingly popular with operators looking to update their current solution but are hindered by lack of space or the cost of redesigning their infrastructure.
In a recent Adder survey, which polled individuals responsible for KVM equipment and control room design within their company, 52% of respondents said space limitation was a major challenge in redesigning their control room with 62% citing the cost of equipment upgrades was their main barrier.
“We’ve been delighted by the response to the ALIF100T – but not surprised. According to our survey, 76% are planning to upgrade their KVM equipment during the next three years. Retrofitting high performance KVM into environments designed around legacy equipment can require a complete redesign, including recabling. However, with this new transmitter, businesses can easily and cost-effectively take advantage of the ADDERLink INFINITY solution without having to increase rack space,” said John Halksworth, senior product manager, Adder Technology.
Adder will also be demonstrating the CCS-PRO range of command and control switches with Free-Flow, audio amalgamation and a ‘keep alive’ function. Widely used for command and control applications, Adder’s innovative Free-Flow technology enables users to use a single mouse to automatically switch between target computers simply by moving the mouse pointer from screen to screen.
The unique keep alive function then provides the option to choose which computers stay alive to prevent target computers from sleeping while not in use. Users can also choose which source audio to hear as well as determine the loudness of the audio, regardless of the computer they are using.
Adder will be able to demonstrate the ability of its high performance KVM technology for InfoComm visitors thanks to its partner and multi award-winning monitor specialist, EIZO. Used by top AV professionals where accurate representation of their work and images is crucial, EIZO’s ColorEdge screens will be powered by the ADDERLink Infinity and CCS-PRO range on stand N1436 to showcase the collaborative workflow capabilities.
