Adder will preview their new breakthrough at the 2009 InfoComm in Orlando. The AdderLink Infinity, a hardware-based DVI extension device, available from Dueltek Computer Products , is capable of extending DVI video, audio, and USB signals over unlimited distances using IP and gigabit Ethernet technologies.
According to Nigel Dickens, Technical Director, Adder, traditional keyboard, video and mouse extender technologies have suffered from range limitations, the need for dedicated cabling and inflexibility in their inherently point-to-point system design. Adder believed that there must be a better way of providing flexible remote access to computing equipment that addresses these issues head on.
The AdderLink Infinity supports an industry-leading DVI-over-IP technology with resolutions of up to 1920x1200 at 60Hz a full-frame video over a single UTP gigabit Ethernet cable. The technology delivers near real time video by using innovative hardware acceleration techniques. These speeds are only possible through Adder's adaptive compression technologies which provide low latencies and give higher picture quality.
Further, the extender supports multicast distribution of video and audio at no additional cost of network bandwidth or wiring. This makes it possible for video to be multicast to any number of receivers, and any receiver can be configured to see any video source in the system.
Adder's approach to USB extension enables certain classes of USB2.0 compatible peripherals to be supported, including keyboards, mice, touch screens, printers and mass storage devices. Incorporating bi-directional CD quality audio extension simplifies use of remote speakers, microphone, and headsets.
The new DVI over IP and USB extender will eliminate the range problems of desktop extension, making centralised management of desktops a reality. Furthermore, with the built-in multicast capabilities of both video and audio, the extender will be suitable for many video distribution applications. The inherent configurability of the system, allowing dynamic switching of video sources and endpoints means that it can be used in the most complex of video and desktop switching applications.
