Just Add Power unveils new 3G series of video distribution products for 4K delivery with HDCP 2.2
Stephan Jukic – August 20, 2015
Just Add Power, a manufacturer of HDMI-over-IP video distribution devices has launched a new 3G series of products that can deliver 4K ultra HD video with integrated HDCP 2.2 content copy protection via IP networks. The devices also happen to work through off-the-shelf networking equipment and can also be used for distribution of lower resolution content like Full HD, HD and SD or below.
The 3G HDMI-over-IP series of devices was introduced at the CE Pro and Commercial Integrator Summit this week and as a new Ultra HD IP solution, uses standard gigabit managed switches to distribute 4K UHD and HDCP 2.2 content through Cat 5e and Cat 6 cables.
Just Add Power notes that the products have been designed specifically for electronics professionals and include features like built-in 4K scaling on the receiving end for distribution of HDMI 2.0 sources to screens without 2.0 built into them and vice versa.
Furthermore, the 3G devices support video walls and uncompressed object-based surround sound formats like the Dolby Atmos
Just Add Power’s devices have been engineered for a range of different applications like residential whole-house media distribution, commercial installations and video wall installations that are as large as 16 by 16 feet with off-the-shelf Ethernet networking components used to assemble them. Also, the commercial installations potentially supported by the new “3G” video distribution devices can range from sx2 video matrixing to as much as 4000 x 65,000.
Other features of this new product line from Just Add Power include:
- Seamless, fluid switching between a range of resolutions from 4K downward, such as 1080p, 720p, 576 and as low as 480. All interlaced and progressively scanned.
- Mix and match HDMI 2.0 monitors within the same network of displays
- Line-in and Mic-in inputs
- Independent RS-232 matrix on LAN and integrated null-modem on RS-232
- HTTP interface with unique device name support along with on-screen API on a display
- Dolby down mixing with stereo output as 2.0 content, downmixing from 5.1 to Dolby Pro Logic II
- Two-way CEC over IP networking
- Compatibility with Fiber as well
- Capacity for a full color image/logo over top of an HDMI signal
The new 3G AV product also happens to work with the same control system drivers, Ethernet switches and integrator tools as those used with the company’s 2G/2G+ and AVPro products.
