At CEDIA 2018, Just Add Power (J+P) will demonstrate the new VBS-HDIP-3G 509POE 3G Ultra HD over IP series daisy chain receiver and launch Just OS, its family of firmware and app-based solutions for control and management of video distribution on any network. Just OS will feature the company’s latest firmware update, Every Switch Supported (ESS), which provides switching capability to make integration even easier. The company is also hosting two trainings during the show, and a special CEDIA celebration on Sept. 7 at 7 p.m. at House of Blues San Diego.
The VBS-HDIP-3G 509POE daisy chain power-over-ethernet (PoE) receiver distributes Ultra HD and 4K video over a single CAT5e cable without the need for fiber. With the onboard pass-through network port, any PoE device can be connected – a network soundbar, IPTV control, or a single display location can be expanded into a video wall. The receiver also expands the number of PoE devices that can be added to the system by connecting a PoE switch to the port.
J+P will also demonstrate its new Just OS family of firmware, built from the ground up with the Representational State Transfer (REST) application programming interface (API), which is widely used in IoT application development. The REST API was chosen for its ability to scale installations almost infinitely, and since it is based around network and web services, it makes integration easier. With this launch, it enables J+P’s ESS capabilities, which were developed to allow integrators to build any size 4K matrix on an existing network without having to change switches. It also brings together J+P’s Switch Please and Plug-Play-Present solutions under one umbrella.
Attendees will also have the opportunity to attend two manufacturer product training sessions at the show to learn more about J+P’s solutions. In each session J+P will walk attendees through the product history and best practices for designing, managing, and scaling video distribution for residential installations of any size. Session 1 will be held Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2:00-3:30 pm in Room 1B, and Session 2 will be held Thursday, Sept. 6, 2:00-3:30 pm in Room 8.
Each day during CEDIA 2018, J+P will give away one of three Brian May BMG Special Guitars, some of the most recognizable guitars in the world, at booth #5344. To win, entrants must visit the booth to enter and be present during the daily 3:00 pm drawing. For each guitar given away, Guitars for Vets (G4V) will donate an acoustic guitar and a year’s worth of lessons to a veteran of the U.S. Armed Services. Winners of the Brian May guitars will have their names put on acoustic guitars donated to the veterans by G4V.
Finally, to celebrate CEDIA for the second year in a row, J+P will roll out the red carpet with an invitation to party with Queen Nation, the world’s premiere Queen cover band, Sept. 7 at the House of Blues San Diego, with doors opening at 7:00 pm. The party is co-sponsored by Peerless AV and Luxul, and attendees can get tickets by stopping by J+Ps booth #5344.
