Adder Products Ensure Broadcasters Connect at IBC2012

Adder Products Ensure Broadcasters Connect at IBC2012
IBC2012, Booth 7.B33
The AdderLink Infinity digital KVM extender from Adder Technology will be used at IBC2012 to pipe news and information to thousands of attendees across the exhibition and conference in Amsterdam.

Adder, a leader in digital keyboard, video, mouse (D-KVM) and official technology sponsor of IBC2012, will also be showcasing the AdderLink Infinity and the AdderLink Infinity Dual on its stand, which will demonstrate command and control in a mock-up of a video control room.
 
The AdderLink Infinity solutions offer broadcasters the ability to create a flexible infrastructure, allowing a computer and user to be separated by almost any distance over a gigabit network without any loss in capabilities, reduction in video resolution, audio quality or USB latency.

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.

Another advantage is that the AdderLink Infinity range removes the noise and heat created by a computer away from the sensitive broadcasting environment, allowing producers to concentrate on what they do best without needless distractions. Also being demonstrated at IBC2012 will be Adder’s innovative CCS4USB FreeFlow Command and Control KM solution, which enables the operator to seamlessly switch between several computers by simply moving the mouse to the desired screen – each connected to individual screens – using just one keyboard and mouse. The CCS4USB supports multi-head allowing connectivity of up to sixteen screens across four computers. A major benefit with FreeFlow technology is that it does not need software installing on mission-critical computers in order to work.

“We are really excited about this year’s IBC,” says Simon Clew, Sales Director at Adder. “The fact that the AdderLink Infinity is being used to stream the Info Channel across IBC means that everyone who attends the exhibition and conference can see what this technology is capable of delivering over long distances.

Visitors to our booth will be able to experience first-hand the extension and switching capabilities our solutions can offer. This is already recognised by broadcasters across the globe, which are using our solutions to power the production of radio and television content to great effect, from content origination and post-production through to the control room.”

Adder will be exhibiting in Booth 7.B33 at IBC, Amsterdam RAI, which runs 7-11 September.

Adder Corporation, a leader in digital keyboard, video, mouse (D-KVM), will showcase its AdderLink Infinity Dual at the InfoComm exhibition and conference, which runs from June 9th to 15th at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas.


The AdderLink Infinity Dual enables the creation of a flexible infrastructure, allowing a computer and its operator to be separated by almost any distance over a gigabit network without any loss of capability or a reduction in video resolution, audio quality or useability.

It can run any size matrix with DVI, USB, RS232 and audio on all ports, providing point to point, sharing and multicast capability. As an IP based matrix switch, AdderLink Infinity Dual provides almost unlimited extension possibilities. This makes it the perfect solution for the audio-visual (AV) industry, allowing any number of devices to be connected, wherever they might be located.

For public AV installations, the AdderLink Infinity Dual minimises the security risks and aesthetic problems that computers in the immediate vicinity can cause, by allowing them to run remotely in a safe, controlled location. Elsewhere, it enables AV specialists to concentrate on what they do best without needless distractions, by removing the noise and heat associated with a computer away from the public environment.

The benefits that AdderLink Infinity Dual offers have been recognised by AV professionals around the world, says Tim Conway, VP of Adder Corporation. Companies are already using our solutions to power their audio-visual projects, whether that is bringing to life an interactive exhibit in a museum or creating content for broadcast. While offering clear environmental and creative advantages, AdderLink Infinity Dual also enables computers containing original and sensitive content to be kept away from areas frequented by visitors, therefore lowering the security risk. With our A.I.M. management suite, the entire matrix can be controlled at the touch of a button.


The AdderLink Infinity Dual system will be on display at booth C6549, together with the full range of KVM extension and digital signage products already in use around the world, in diverse environments from casinos to national parliaments.
