Adder Technology brings High Performance KVM to Standard IP Networks for US Broadcast and Post-Production Studios

Demonstrated at SMPTE 2013, AdderLink Infinity doubles traditional KVM performance and delivers a complete project view from any screen.

Los Angeles, California and Boston, Massachusetts, October 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --SMPTE 2013 – This week at the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) 2013 Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition, Adder Technology, the high performance KVM specialist, will demonstrate in booth #306 its AdderLink Infinity hardware and v3.0 firmware designed to increase productivity, reliability and performance of today’s standard IP connected broadcast and post-production computing environments.

"Studios are under increasing pressure to maximize facility efficiency, which often suffers from finite space, inflexible set-ups and a myriad of software and hardware technologies,” said Tim Conway, Vice President for Adder. “Now is the time to upgrade to a flexible real time and interactive KVM video matrix that takes full advantage of standard IP networks, while offering a bird’s eye view of production equipment, editing software and any system in the studio from any screen.”

The AdderLink Infinity product family includes a range of scalable KVM single link, dual link or dual head digital extension, switching and matrix solutions for both PCs and Macs that are often used in conjunction with Avid® Pro Tools®, Media Composer® and Autodesk® Smoke® and Flame®. With its v3.0 firmware, AdderLink Infinity provides double the bandwidth of other KVM systems, providing lossless HD video at 60 FPS and high fidelity audio over standard IP infrastructure.

With a simple user interface, AdderLink Infinity allows teams to improve productivity by accessing their project configuration and assets from any suite, as well as share resources with colleagues by simply logging on to their personal profile. Furthermore, v3.0 has redundancy built in. By eliminating any single point of failure 24/7 reliability is provided for mission critical applications such as live on-air broadcasting.

“The pressure is on for studios to maximize every minute of production time and tightly manage projects from start to finish,” added Conway. “Technology that can keep a project on schedule, without interruption is highly valued, and can deliver studios, galleries and post-production facilities a rapid return on investment.”

AdderLink Infinity digital KVM products can be used in flexible and scalable configurations to meet the unique needs of each studio. SMPTE visitors are encouraged to visit Adder in Booth 306 for a demonstration and to download the Adder brochure “Broadcast & Post Solutions”.
