The AdderLink X2-MultiScreen extends two or four very high quality video signals, together with keyboard and mouse signals, multiple RS232 signals and high quality audio up to 300m/1000ft over Category 5 or higher twisted pair cable.
In addition to this functionality, the X2-MultiScreen provides a local feed through port for control of computers at the local computer end. Based on the technology of the hugely successful AdderLink X2-Gold, the AdderLink X2-MultiScreen provides industry-leading rack densities and is a modular and flexible solution.
Multiple video extension can be used in a wide variety of scenarios where it is either inhospitable or impractical to place both the machine and control console in the same place. The X2-MultiScreen is ideal for use in industrial process and control room environments, financial dealing rooms, emergency services control rooms, broadcast production studios, security environments or any multiple touch screen applications.
It is often desirable in multi screen applications for administrators to configure or monitor the computer locally. The X2-MultiScreen provides local access in order that configuration does not have to be carried out remotely or require the unplugging and plugging in of local screens, keyboard and mice.
Industry leading video resolutions of 1600 x 1200 are achievable at 200m/650ft and 1280x1024 at 300m/1000ft. The AdderLink X2-MultiScreen applies a high level of signal compensation that allows for a greatly increased range of very smooth and fine adjustments. The X2-MultiScreen also offers its own brightness correction to ensure that the image is crisp, clear and bright, regardless of the distance and is individually selectable per video head.
The X2-MultiScreen’s state of the art 300MHz DeSkew circuits compensate for any skew effects that may be introduced by long CATx cables. DDC circuits are also fitted to enable the computer to query the monitors so that the video cards can be optimally configured. Without this circuitry, some well-known high performance video cards cannot be used at high resolutions.
The AdderLink X2-MultiScreen units ensure that the transmitter and receiver clocks are synchronised to ensure that no audio is ever lost or added, thus preventing annoying audio clicks.
