Just Add Power has announced its third-generation 3G Ultra HD over IP transmitters and receivers, which work in conjunction with a standard gigabit managed Ethernet switch to distribute 4K/UHD and HDCP 2.2 encrypted content, as well as 1080p and lower content, from any number of source devices to any number of displays over a local area network.
Just Add Power tailored the feature set for custom installers to include HDCP 2.2 support, a built-in 4K/1K up/down scaler on the receiver for the distribution of HDMI 2.0 sources to non-HDMI 2.0 screens, and vice versa, enhanced support for video walls, support of uncompressed lossless multichannel audio formats including Dolby Atmos, USB over IP, and Dolby down mixing to stereo analog audio.
“With our product design, 4k is an evolution, not a revolution," said Ed Qualls, president and founder of Just Add Power. "We just don’t believe in telling people to toss out what they bought last year or four years ago — same switch, same cabling, same control system drivers, more features and better performance.”
With 3G there is no mandatory upgrade to 10 Gigabit managed switches and fiber optic cabling, though fiber can be used if desired. Otherwise, use standard Cat 5e/6 cabling and a Gigabit managed switch with the 3G Ultra HD over IP transmitters and receivers to create an HDCP 2.2-compliant, Ultra HD video matrix of any size, from 2×2 to 4000 x 65,000 with support for video walls (up to 16 x 16) and a built-in 4K scaler (on 3G Receivers) that facilitates the distribution of HDMI 1.4 devices and HDMI 2.0 displays and vice versa.
