ADDER Asia recently attended VIBA (Vietnam International Broadcast & AV Show) in HoChiMinh city, Vietnam.
Viba is a three day show designed to bring the regions Broadcast and AV decision makers together in one place. This proved to be a real success for us. Our first time exhibiting at this show, VIBA was a great opportunity to get to know customers in Vietnam, together with their needs.
Showing our latest technologies including the ADDERLink INFINITY dual 2112T featuring VNC alongside the CCS4USB command and control switch, feedback from visitors was very positive. The flexibility of the ADDER A.I.M. matrix solution with scalable ADDERLink INFINITY end points was of real interest, allowing users to build a KVM matrix rapidly whilst delivering solid reliability and transparent functionality. Its really important when choosing a KVM Matrix solution that its presence is not apparent to the users. Any Interactions with the system for example switching to a different computer must be simple in operation and function. Our OSD (on screen display) demonstrated this beautifully.
Also of real interest was the technology demonstration for our HDMI extension concept. More details to follow later in the year.
If you are based in Vietnam, and did not get an opportunity to visit the show, we would love to hear from you. We are also interested in hearing from potential local partners keen to build their connectivity business. Please contact us here

|Adder Corporation, the Digital Keyboard, Video, Mouse (D-KVM) specialist, is to launch the XD500 a DisplayPort KVM extender at NAB, which runs from April 6th to 11th at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The XD500 extends two DisplayPort video streams plus high speed USB (480Mbps), analog audio and digital audio (SPDIF) over 300 feet (100 Meters) of CATx cable. The link is capable of supporting support a single 2560x1600 @60Hz screen or two screens running at 1080p resolutions. The link is lossless so every pixel is faithfully reproduced at the receiver unit.
Also featuring at the show is the enhanced CCS4-USB Command and Control switch which includes new features of support for complex keyboards and mice and screen identification module. The CCS4-USB enables a user to work across up to four computers and screens though a single keyboard and mouse significantly reducing the desk clutter. The CCS4-USB delivers seamless switching of USB 2.0 and audio, using an upgraded version of Adder’s USB True Emulation technology.
The most significant feature is the Free-Flow technology which enables the user to switch control of computers by moving the mouse cursor seamlessly from screen to screen.
Adder will also be demonstrating the award-winning AdderLink Infinity Matrix. This Digital KVM matrix switcher solution enables an operator to work on any computer across a LAN using standard 1Gb Ethernet infrastructure at any distance without any loss in capabilities.
Users have the capability to create an infinite sized digital matrix with DVI, USB, RS232 and audio available at any user station. It provides almost unlimited extension possibilities making it an ideal solution for broadcasters, allowing multiple studios and control rooms to be connected, no matter where they are located.
Another advantage of the AdderLink Infinity matrix is that it removes the noise and heat associated with a hard drive away from the sensitive broadcasting environment, allowing producers to concentrate on what they do best without needless distractions.
Also at the show is the ALIF2112T – part of the AdderLink Infinity matrix solution, it is a high performance KVM server that can be accessed remotely via IP with a VNC viewer and/or simultaneously with an AdderLink Infinity receiver. A huge advantage is that it can simultaneously serve a VNC equipped video wall processor and user station reducing the complexity of control room infrastructure to integrate a KVM matrix with video walls.
“Being able to extend high resolution digital video and maintain full control is important for the broadcast industry,” says Tim Conway, VP of Adder Corporation. “Whether it be controlling multiple computers from a single station, managing 4 systems at the same time from a single keyboard and mouse or simply removing the noisy computers or servers from the working environment - we have a range of products to make it happen.”
Adder will be demonstrating these and many more products on booth SL11808.

|Adder Technology, the keyboard, video and mouse (KVM) specialist, will demonstrate how its solutions can streamline air traffic control at ATC Global 2013, which runs 12-14 March at the RAI, Amsterdam.
Adder will be previewing its latest high-reliance Command and Control switch CCS4PRO. The new solution features IP control and redundant power to offer users a continuous and reliable connection for working on up to four computers and up to 32 screens as though on a single interface. The IP control allows seamless integration with other systems for SNMP control and monitoring. As with the best-selling CCS4USB, the CCS4PRO delivers USB 2.0, audio, Free-Flow and ‘USB True Emulation’ technology. This capability is particularly useful to the ATC industry where controllers have to analyse and act upon information from a variety of sources simultaneously.
Also being demonstrated for the first time at ATC will be the CCS-XB light module for CCS4USB. Using a simple LED on top of each display the CCS-XB quickly lets a user know which screen their mouse cursor is positioned on.
Adder’s on-stand technology partner will be high-end computer display manufacturer, Eizo. Using Eizo screens Adder will demonstrate the IP-DVP (Digital Video & Peripherals) matrix, the AdderLink Infinity and AdderLink Infinity Dual. These DVP matrix solutions enable an operator to work on a computer across a LAN to almost any distance without any loss in capabilities, reduction in video resolution, audio quality or USB latency. Adder will also reveal AdderLink Infinity Dual’s new VNC (virtual network computing) capability to the ATC market. This allows users to access their content anywhere in the world over an internet connection, giving full remote visibility, secured by AES256 encryption with RSA 2048 authentication.
Simon Clew, Adder’s Sales Director, said: “Reliability is, of course, critical to the ATC sector and air traffic controllers need to have complete confidence that they will always be able to operate critical systems. Our background in mission critical Command and Control, together with our focus on Air Traffic Control systems makes Adder a natural choice.”
The Adder Command and Control system will be on display at Stand D508.

|Adder Technology, the experts in connectivity solutions, will demonstrate their latest flexible infrastructure and command and control solutions for the broadcast industry at BVE, which runs 26-28 February at Excel London. Adder will be showing the latest updates to their award-winning AdderLink Infinity and AdderLink Infinity Dual digital media extenders, as well as the CCS4USB command and control switch alongside broadcast specialist Digi-Box.co.uk (Stand F12).
AdderLink Infinity and AdderLink Infinity Dual enable the creation of a flexible digital matrix, allowing a computer and its operator to be separated by almost any distance without any loss in capabilities. With these units broadcasters and production companies have the capability to run a uniquely scalable, unlimited matrix with DVI, USB, RS232 and audio available at any destination or desk.
The AdderLink Infinity Dual now features the new Magic Eye technology which provides compatibility with Apple Mac computers using a variety of graphics cards, making the Adder solution one of the few IP-based matrices to support the Apple OS. In addition, Adder will also reveal a new transmitter unit (ALIF2112T) with built-in VNC (virtual network computing) capability. The ALIF2112T allows users to have full control of their computers from anywhere in the world over an internet connection while maintaining real-time access through the local IP matrix.
It has the capability to run any size matrix with DVI, USB, RS232 and Audio on all ports, the only limitation is the user’s network and how the traffic architecture is configured. As a gigabit based matrix switch, the AdderLink Infinity range provides almost unlimited extension possibilities. This makes it an ideal solution for the broadcast industry, allowing any number of studios and control rooms to be connected, wherever they might be located. Designed with Apple in mind, the AdderLink Infinity Dual provides dual link DVI, allowing it to support very large screens such as the popular Apple Cinema Display, or dual monitor set-ups.
Simon Clew, Sales Director at Adder Technology, said: “AdderLink Infinity is the most the advanced IP-based matrix switch in the world and the latest functionality provides almost unlimited extension possibilities. This makes it an ideal solution for broadcasters, allowing any number of studios and control rooms to be connected or instantly duplicated, wherever they might be located.”
Also being demonstrated is the CCS4USB — a breakthrough in command and control switching. It delivers USB 2.0, audio, Free-Flow and ‘USB True Emulation’ technology, allowing the user to work across up to four computers and 32 screens through a single interface, vastly improving the ergonomics of a work desk.
“AdderLink Infinity and CCS4USB offer significant benefits to broadcasters,” continued Clew. “Broadcasters around the world recognise these benefits and are already using our solutions to power the production of radio and television material, from content origination and post-production through to the studio control rooms and galleries. The advantages are not just environmental and creative: AdderLink Infinity enables hard drives containing original and sensitive content to be stored securely away from studios frequented by visitors, therefore reducing the security risk.”
