Product features part 1

Secure access and communications
Using TLS (transport layer security) and HTTPS, communications between ADDERLink® INFINITY (ALIF) units and the ADDERLink INFINITY Manager (AIM), and between AIM and the outside world are all secure.

Redundant operation
For 24/7 reliability a second ‘hot’ AIM can be added to ensure constant uptime and with dual NIC interfaces on every ALIF unit, systems can be easily designed for maximum resilience.

User access rights management and audit trails
Administrators can manage access rights to each device on a user by user basis either manually through the web browser or automatically using Active Directory. Reports showing the history of devices, user logins and device connections can be viewed and exported to a CSV file or via SYSLOG.

Easy centralized management
Accessed via a web browser, the dashboard gives a real-time overview of system connections and users. Tabs enable you to navigate between settings and devices or user sub-menus.

Control Channel and Presets connections
AIM can be used to make connections between an individual pair of transmitter and receiver devices centrally from within the management system. Using Presets, a list of pre-defined connections, multiscreen, video wall or signage setups can be ‘pushed’ with a single click.

Internationalization
The user desks can select different keyboard configurations to suit their requirements and as a global setting select the language for the OSD from a choice of over 14 languages.

On-screen display at each user station
Users login and choose channel connections from an intuitive OSD similar to that of a Digital TV. Users can also use Presets to change channels for multiple screens across multiple receivers.

Remote OSD
The remote OSD allows the user to ‘push’ video and control to another station, to a video wall or projector. Favorites and hotkey switching Each user can select their favorite channels within the OSD and allocate a hotkey for fast switching between channels.

Choice of connection modes
Administrators can choose to give users the ability to connect in four modes: View only, shared, private or exclusive. Each permitted mode is then made available within the OSD.

Fast video and USB switching
The switching time between computers is less than 1 second to provide a quality user experience. Multicasting Network multicasting allows the system to share video simultaneously from one transmitter to an unlimited number of receivers. Suitable for signage, monitoring and sharing of desktops.

Multicasting
Network multicasting allows the system to share video simultaneously from one transmitter to an unlimited number of receivers. Suitable for signage, monitoring and sharing of desktops.

USB sharing
USB sharing allows multiple users to connect to and control a single computer at the same time. Each transmitter can report 12 unique USB devices (identified by VID/PID codes) but will merge devices with the same ID to allow many more.

Channels
Considered as a virtual transmitter, a channel may combine video, audio and USB from different transmitters as a single source. Ideal where audio alerts or mixed video sources are required.

Open API for 3rd party control systems
Adder Technology publishes a simple API structure to allow easy integration with other 3rd Party control systems supplied by companies like AMX, Crestron, HRS or MediaLon at a HTTP level.

LDAP integration
To help ease setup, the system has an LDAP interface so users and passwords from other systems can easily be imported.

SNMP v3 get / walk
External machines can interrogate AIM to find out the status of the ALIF network and units. SNMP v3 security is implemented, supporting AES/DES transport with MD5/SHA authentication.

External NTP server support – NTPv4.2
Connect up to 3 NTP servers with authenticated connections using MD5 and Key ID as defined in the NTP standards. All ALIF units in an AIM network now get time using authenticated NTP from AIM.

System backups
Backups of the database can be saved internally, externally or emailed automatically. Automatic updates can be scheduled on an hourly, daily or weekly basis.

Centralized firmware upgrades
As well as managing its own firmware upgrade, AIM manages the upgrade of each device on the network and can deploy firmware to hundreds of devices at the same time, meaning a systemwide upgrade takes only a few minutes.

Easy matrix setup
Using zero config. networking, AIM automatically obtains the MAC addresses of extender devices as they are attached to the network. The administrator allocates IP addresses, names and locations so that devices are easy to identify, configure and control.

Product features part 1

Perfect digital video, real time control
Using a spatially-lossless encoding system, with 1:1 pixel mapping, the ADDERLink INFINITY (ALIF) 2122 provides pixel-perfect and color accurate video with no artifacts. The digital video received is the same as the digital video leaving the remote computer.

Single CATx cable or fiber with immunity from interference
Using standard IP technology allows a choice of single structured cable (CATx) or fiber connection achieving reliable links without interference.

Extension distances
Extension distance is not limited to a single 100m/328ft cable length - it can be extended further by adding a 1GbE network device to achieve an additional 100m/328ft. The units are fitted with SFP cages to accept fiber optic transceivers which enable much greater extension distances of up to 20km/12mi.

Support for Mac Pro® (Dithered Video)
Some graphics cards use a technique called dithering to give the appearance of a deeper color depth than is actually the case. Dithering can significantly increase the normal video data rates. The ALIF2122 TX has a feature called Magic Eye which supports dithering without allowing it to degrade overall link performance.

USB2.0 with class control
Enables connection of USB devices such as mouse and keyboard, graphics tablets, jog shuttles, joysticks, and 3D explorers, alongside mass storage devices. For applications where security is of high importance, the system has the ability to disable the use of non-HID devices, meaning there is no need to physically block USB ports to prevent the use of mass storage devices.

EDID management
Intelligent EDID management allows the true characteristics of the monitor to be passed back to the computer. This ensures perfect video display without additional configuration.

Plug and Play
All ALIF extender devices are delivered in a zero config state so you can plug them in and start working on them straight away. There is no need for drivers or software to be installed.

Redundant network operation
The units support network teaming allowing for full network redundancy and increased resilience for mission critical applications.

ADDERLink INFINITY Matrix
With the addition of the ADDERLink INFINITY Management System (AIM), multiple point-to-point extenders can be turned into a truly scalable digital KVM matrix system, that allows any workstation to link with any computer connected to the network.
