AdderLink X2 Multiscreen X2-MS2; X2-MS4; X2-MS4/T

Part of the AdderLink X-Series, the AdderLink X2-MultiScreen extends two or four very high quality video signals together with keyboard, mouse, audio and two or four transparent, full speed RS232 signals up to 300m/1000ft over Category 5 or higher UTP cable. The AdderLink X2-MultiScreen has been designed to provide industry-leading video clarity, compatibility and high rack densities.

Adderlink X2 Multiscreen


  • Video performance
    Industry leading resolutions of 1600 x 1200 are achievable at 200m/650ft and 1280x1024 at 300m/1000ft.
  • Video compensation
    The AdderLink X2-MultiScreen applies a high level of signal compensation that allows for a greatly increased range of very smooth and fine adjustments.
  • Brightness control
    The AdderLink X2-MultiScreen 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.
  • Audio
    Digital audio transmission delivers high fidelity click-less stereo audio for speakers and microphones.
  • Integrated DeSkew
    The AdderLink X2-MultiScreen has integrated skew correction with a 300MHz bandwidth, meaning that it is more than powerful enough to correct the negative effects of RGB colour skew.
  • Emulated DDC
    Unless an extender actively supports DDC, some well-known high performance video cards cannot be used at high resolutions. The AdderLink X2-MultiScreen fully supports DDC.
  • Rack options
    Both transmitter and receiver units can be used stand-alone or multiple units can be mounted into a X-Series 2U chassis.
