Adder ensuring broadcasters connect in the IP revolution

AdderView DDX30

Adder Technology, the high performance KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) specialist, will be demonstrating its full range of KVM, extension and connectivity solutions at the IBC 2015 in Amsterdam. The company will showcase its very latest fully-redundant high performance broadcast KVM solutions. This includes redundant network operations, redundant and centralised power solutions, and a redundant management server solution.

Taking centre stage will be the launch of the AdderView DDX30, Adder’s latest innovation in high performance KVM. The DDX matrix is compact, has a choice of DVI and DisplayPort transmitters, and provides beyond HD resolution (up to 1920×1200) at 60FPS. With extension distances of up to 60 meters, via the switch, over a single standard CATx cable. It also features transparent EDID management, full-speed USB, and an intuitive GUI with thumbnail displays of computer sources.

Another advantage of the DDX30, is its rock-solid performance in the field. More traditional KVM solutions needed to be configured, patched or customised for different tasks, whereas this unique KVM matrix includes 30 ports which can be shared and flexibly scaled between users and computers, allowing users to simply program pre-set configurations at the touch of a button. The end-result being that multiple users can use presets to easily switch between multiple computer sources.


“The key focus when we designed the new AdderView DDX30, was to make sure that our customers’ voices were heard,” said Jamie Shepperd, group marketing manager, and Adder Technology. “This digital matrix product provides a pixel perfect, lossless matrix solution for discreet workgroups.”

Visitors to IBC will also be able to see demos of other Adder products, including the AdderLink Infinity Dual 2020, a dual head, single link digital KVM extender that forms part of the award winning AdderLink Infinity matrix. Also on display will be version 4.0 of the AdderLink Infinity Manager (A.I.M), an easy and powerful centralised management solution featuring a new hardware platform with more power than previous versions. The AdderLink XD150, a 150 meter, single head DVI extender featuring high-speed DVI and USB extension and finally, the Adder CCS-Pro4, a command and control switch for using up to four computers from a single keyboard or mouse.
