The Adder ADDERLink INFINITY 2122 Receiver is a high performance IP KVM (Keyboard, Video and Mouse) extender that forms part of the ALIF matrix solution. This enables the relocation of critical computing hardware into a secure and temperature controlled environment away from the user work station; whilst maintaining a pixel-perfect desktop experience. Perfect digital video, real time control Using a spatially-lossless encoding system, with 1:1 pixel mapping, the ADDERLink INFINITY (ALIF) 2122 provides pixel-perfect and color accurate video with no artifacts. The digital video received is the same as the digital video leaving the remote computer. Single CATx cable or fiber with immunity from interference Using standard IP technology allows a choice of single structured cable (CATx) or fiber connection achieving reliable links without interference. Extension distances Extension distance is not limited to a single 100m/328ft cable length - it can be extended further by adding a 1GbE network device to achieve an additional 100m/328ft. The units are fitted with SFP cages to accept fiber optic transceivers which enable much greater extension distances of up to 20km/12mi.
Support for Mac Pro (Dithered Video) Some graphics cards use a technique called dithering to give the appearance of a deeper color depth than is actually the case. Dithering can significantly increase the normal video data rates. The ALIF2122 TX has a feature called Magic Eye which supports dithering without allowing it to degrade overall link performance. USB2.0 with class control Enables connection of USB devices such as mouse and keyboard, graphics tablets, jog shuttles, joysticks, and 3D explorers, alongside mass storage devices. For applications where security is of high importance, the system has the ability to disable the use of non-HID devices, meaning there is no need to physically block USB ports to prevent the use of mass storage devices. EDID management Intelligent EDID management allows the true characteristics of the monitor to be passed back to the computer. This ensures perfect video display without additional configuration.
