Just Add Power, exhibiting at CEDIA Booth 9009, is amping up the capabilities of its 718KVM/749KVM transmitters to offer full AVP functionality with Dolby chipsets that are now available for order. Built-in response to strong customer demand for the 718AVP and 749AVP transmitters at a time when the solutions’ Dolby downmixing chipset was in short supply, the 718KVM/749KVM transmitters support keyboard, video, and mouse (KVM)–as well as stereo audio breakout–right out of the box. With the installation of the new Dolby chipset, the transmitters can be modified in the field to deliver full AVP performance.
Just Add Power’s new 718KVM and the rackmount 749KVM will replace the out-of-stock 718AVP and 749AVP indefinitely. Like the AVP models, the new PoE transmitters encode a 4K or lower-resolution source device into an IP signal and send it over the network with ultra-low latency and instant switching; support HDCP 2.2 and USB 2.0; and feature image pull, 3.5mm stereo audio output with adjustable delay, and RS-232, IR, and CEC control of sources. With the chipset upgrade, the 718KVM and 749KVM will enable Dolby DSP, the re-encoding of Dolby Digital 5.1 as Dolby Pro Logic II for HDMI distribution to both multi-channel and stereo audio zones, and provide two analog audio inputs that are mixable with HDMI audio. The KVM transmitters are now shipping.
