Adder to Unveil its 4K Capable Solutions
Los Angeles – Adder Technology, the leader in high performance, IP-based keyboard, video and mouse (KVM) connectivity solutions, will be demonstrating the power and flexibility of its end-to-end IP workflow across the broadcast chain at the NAB Show in Las Vegas. In addition, the company is launching 4K capable solutions on its booth, SL10105.
In conjunction with Stagebox, developed in part by BBC Research and Development, Adder Technology is transforming its booth to demonstrate how IP technologies enhance each stage of the broadcast production chain. The booth will be divided into four sections, including the studio, where Stagebox technology will work with Adder products, the control gallery, post production and grading along with transmission play out.
"Our engineers will demonstrate our key products and 4K capability at the show. Live content captured in front of a green screen using cameras and Stagebox technology, will then be fed into a virtual studio. The Stagebox transmitter sits on the back of the camera and sends the feed over low bandwidth IP to a receiver in the control room. Management of the virtual studio workflow takes place in the AdderLink Infinity environment, giving access for control to any allowed user on the network," says Tim Conway, vice president, Adder Technology. "The entire workflow, from ingest through to transmission, is completed over an IP network."
The company is also launching 4K capable KVM products at the show including the 4K DisplayPort extender – based on the AdderLink XD522. A simple firmware upgrade makes the device capable of extending 4K signals, which means that existing XD522 products already in the field can be upgraded by customers.
"We’re looking forward to NAB – firstly working with a company like Stagebox that has a series of products perfectly complementing our own in the broadcast space; and secondly to demonstrate the power of IP and the synergy it has with 4K," concludes Conway.
Visit Adder Technology at booth SL10105 at NAB from 7-10 April.
