Adder Technology To Reveal New Zero U KVM Transmitter At NAB

Adder Technology has announced it will unveil its Zero U, IP-based ADDERLink INFINITY 100T (ALIF100T) at the 2018 NAB Show.

ALIF100T is the world's smallest high performance KVM transmitter, and is ideal for broadcast applications where there's a pressure for rack space and cutting space in premium, in-demand estates.

The ALIF100T USB powered KVM transmitter forms part of the ADDERLink Infinity solution. It can be easily retrofitted into any existing infrastructure without the need for re-cabling, moving computers or changing racking – reducing the overall cost of migrating from analogue to digital. It can be plugged straight into the back of any computer like a dongle, taking up Zero U if rack mounted and can hang from the back of the source. Highly scalable, it also enables broadcasters to grow their system over time without needing to accommodate new rack space.

The benefits also translate directly to OB trucks as the dongle's 'small form factor' is ideal for mobile trucks which have even less space internally than larger data centres. The ALIF100T also allows broadcasters to link its OB units together to create a streamlined workspace from just one source.

"One of the most common issues our broadcaster customers face when looking to migrate to digital is the size of transmitters and lack of space," commented John Halksworth, senior product manager, Adder Technology. "Consequently, this new product will be especially attractive to those looking to upgrade or update their current KVM systems with the ADDERLink Infinity range but are hindered by the space issues or the cost of redesigning their current infrastructure."

"Retrofitting high performance KVM into environments designed around legacy, outdated equipment is challenging and expensive, sometimes requiring a complete redesign including recabling. However, with the new transmitter, businesses can easily and cost effectively take advantage of the ADDERLink Infinity solution without this costly step," added Halksworth.   

The ALIF100T also uses only 2 watts, which ensures less heat is generated and less cooling is required, therefore bringing down costs substantially. The device can also be powered directly from USB, meaning there is no need for power distribution units (PDUs) – saving on further costs and negating the need for additional space.

The new ADDERLink transmitter adds to the company's existing product range, and works with the ADDERLink INFINITY Manager (A.I.M.) and ADDERLink INFINITY receivers.

Adder will be at stand SL4227 at the 2018 NAB Show (April 07-12).
