AdderView CATx 1000 KVM Switch Only Product of Its Kind to Deliver Stereo Audio and Unsurpassed Port Capacity NEWBURYPORT, MA and LAS VEGAS – April 28, 2008 – Adder, a leading developer of KVM switches, extenders and KVM over IP solutions, today announced the launch of the AdderView CATx 1000. The AdderView CATx 1000 is a compact, multiplatform KVM switch with audio support that allows a user to control up to 16 computers connected to the CATx switch via CAT 5 cable locally at the switch or remotely up to 1,000 feet away. The use of CATx cable from the computer to the switch allows for a much smaller switch, greatly reduced cable bulk and more flexibility. Part of the CATx Series of Adder KVM devices, the CATx 1000 has been designed to minimize space requirements where space is at a premium and maximize flexibility both in use and location. One or two of the KVM switches can be rack mounted and cascaded with other CATx 1000s to support up to 256 computers. “We believe that the small to medium-sized business will greatly benefit from the CATx 1000 as it delivers all of the advantages of an enterprise CATx switch in a desktop form factor for smaller server rooms,� said Nigel Dickens, Adder’s Technical Director. “It also provides the richest feature-set available on the market at less than a third of the price of traditional 19-inch CATx solutions. This product truly enables SMBs to have the same operation flexibility and stability previously enjoyed by much larger enterprises.� The CATx 1000 delivers a wide range of features including digital stereo audio, high resolution video, USB device control and an advanced on screen display and serial control for remote switching, power control and synchronizing with other CATx 1000 units. Users can also leverage security profiles which identify the user prior to handing over control and even duplicate the connection profiles onto other CATx 1000 devices if required. Another impressive feature is Display Data Channel (DDC) handling where the KVM uses specific information transferred from the display device to ensure correct video is maintained with host machines. The CATx 1000 can be connected to just about any type of host including PC, Server, Mac or Sun by leveraging Adder’s Computer Access Modules (CAMs) to enable broad connectivity options. The CATx 1000 carries keyboard country codes enabling different keyboards from different countries to be used on Sun hosts. The KVM switch also uses ‘keep alive’ technology which maintains the impression of keyboard and mouse being present, even when disconnected for a long period of time between KVM selections. Pricing & Availability: The AdderView CATx 1000 is available through local distribution partners around the world. Distribution information can be found at
