AdderLink X50 Extends High Quality Video and CD Quality Audio Up to 165 ft NEWBURYPORT, MA and LAS VEGAS – June 17, 2008 – Adder, a leading developer of KVM switches, extenders and KVM over IP solutions, today announced the launch of the AdderLink X50 video extender. The AdderLink X50 is a link transparent USB and high performance video extender that delivers bright, sharp, high quality video at up to 1920 x 1200 together with 44.1kHz digital stereo audio over a single CATx cable. The AdderLink X50 is designed for use in applications where users require their USB peripherals such as keyboards, mice and graphics tablets to be extended up to 165 ft from the computer. Beyond more traditional uses, the X50 is ideal for interactive digital signage applications such as point-of-sale and touch screen kiosks. The AdderLink X50-Multiscreen adds a second video and transparent, high speed RS232 connection. The extra functionality adds to the diverse range of solutions for which the AdderLink X50 can be used including the extension of computers with dual monitors, allowing it to be used in industrial applications plus a diversity of other KVM extension scenarios. “We saw the market need for a cost-effective, high performance, transparent USB and video extender that can support all low/full speed USB devices,� said Nigel Dickens, Adder’s CTO. “The AdderLink X50 has the usual high video performance you would expect from any Adder product combined with totally transparent USB, meaning that the potential applications are incredibly diverse.� USB support has become critical as PS/2 keyboards and mice become less common and the use of peripherals such as graphics tablets and USB drives increase. The AdderLink X50 uses Adder’s unique USB extension technology to extend USB transparently up to 165 ft. The X50 delivers the highest possible levels of USB compatibility and supports all low/full speed compatible USB devices. To ensure maximum video performance, the AdderLink X50 allows very smooth and fine picture adjustments to be made. For maximum flexibility, local control of extended computers through a local video and audio output at the transmitter unit is also possible. The AdderLink X50 provides true Display Data Channel (DDC) emulation, ensuring all possible resolutions are supported and the video card is always perfectly set up. The X50 is platform independent and is desk, shelf or rack mountable for added flexibility, up to 16 units can be fitted into a 2U frame for rack mount applications. The AdderLink X50 is currently available through local distribution partners around the world and has a list price of $645. The AdderLink X50-Multiscreen will be available in the Fall of 2008 and will carry a list price of $945.
