Adder Technology Develops New Adder ZeroU IP KVM for Increased Customer Connectivity Choice
Adder Technology announced a pair of new KVM transmitters that bring HDMI and DisplayPort connectivity to its proven and trusted ZeroU portfolio. The dongle design, combined with plug and play functionality, makes the series perfectly placed to support organizations looking to take advantage of the benefits of IP KVM while making efficient use of valuable rack space.
“When moving Nobeo1, our leading and most modern OB truck, to a UHD workflow we needed a KVM solution that made efficient use of valuable rack space, and gave production staff access to vital equipment without distraction or hesitation,” says Christian Boden, new technology manager, at Nobeo GmbH, a specialist in outside broadcast (OB) and post-production. “The truck is at the core of many leading outside productions, so reliability was essential. We specified Adder’s ZeroU range, and it has continued to deliver for us time and time again. It is great to now have the flexibility to connect our HDMI and DisplayPort sources to our existing network without needing to rip and replace.”
The ADDERLink INFINITY 100 (ALIF100) series has evolved to meet the growing demand for popular connectivity standards. According to Allied Market Research (2020), the global HDMI cable market is worth a staggering $2.46 billion and is projected to reach $3.86 billion by 2026. By introducing two new variants, customers have the utmost choice and flexibility when selecting a model that is best suited to their KVM requirements. Support for video resolutions up to 2560 x 1600 allows for pixel-perfect data visualization, while two-channel HDMI audio, hi-speed USB 2.0 compatibility and Adder’s USB True Emulation technology, deliver an ‘at-the-PC’ experience for users.
“Our customers are constantly juggling how to maximize rack space and IT efficiency, while adapting their IT infrastructure to support their evolving technology needs,” comments John Halksworth, senior product manager, Adder. “As KVM often lies at the heart of our customers’ IT function, it is important that we continue to innovate to meet these changing demands, remove connectivity pain points and facilitate growth. The new additions to our ZeroU range enable our customers to embrace the flexibility the need to use any connectivity type that suits their application – both now and into the future.”
