Adder Technology, a global specialist in connectivity and IP KVM, will showcase its world first dual-head high performance, 4K IP KVM matrix over a single fiber at BroadcastAsia 2019. Building on its continued success since launch earlier this year, the show will be the first opportunity for customers in the Asia Pacific region to get hands-on with the new ADDERLink™ INFINITY 4000 Series (ALIF4000).
The launch of the ALIF4000 is perfectly timed to support IP KVM users as they transition their broadcast and production environments to 4K.
It is predicted that the global 4K display market will be worth $52bn by 2020 (up by 188% vs 2015) and by the end of 2019, half of US homes will own a 4K TV. As the adoption of 4K technology continues to rise, so does the need for 4K content which in turn places unprecedented demand on broadcasters and media production houses.
John Stevens, director of engineering at Los Angeles-based post-production house The Foundation, said, “The launch of the ALIF4000 series gives us the opportunity to take control and add 4K functionality to our existing infrastructure, as and when we need it, without having to rip and replace; meaning we can continue to meet our customers’ growing need for 4K output.”
The ALIF4000 delivers pixel-perfect, color accurate video quality, audio and USB to single or dual 4K screens - benefitting broadcasters, post-production professionals or VFX specialists looking to improve their workflow and increase flexibility by making 4K content accessible from a single position or location.
Loki Ong, VP APAC, Adder adds, “We are proud to return to BroadcastAsia to debut another world first with the ADDERLink INFINITY 4000 Series. The introduction of the ALIF4000 into the ADDERLink INFINITY range means our customers can take control of all their 4K KVM requirements without the need to rip and replace existing technology.”
Full compatibility with the existing ADDERLink INFINITY range means the ALIF4000 can be phased into an existing network without disruption, downtime or the costly need to rip and replace – giving media and broadcast professionals the access to 4K IP KVM as and when they need it.
Alongside the ALIF4000 at BroadcastAsia 2019, Adder will be demonstrating the new ADDERLink ipeps+, which gives broadcasters secure management of out-of-band servers and real-time remote access to HD video from anywhere in the world, at up to 30 frames per second (fps).
Following its global success since launch last year, the world’s smallest IP KVM transmitter, the ADDERLink INFINITY 100T (ALIF100T) Series will also return to Singapore. The ALIF100T delivers the high performance IP KVM expected from Adder with a choice of connectivity: DVI, display port or VGA. This space-saving transmitter is ideal for small server rooms or compact production environments and seamlessly integrates with the rest of the ADDERLink INFINITY range.
