AdderLink AV100 Series
The AdderLink AV Series is a range of audiovisual extenders delivering high video resolutions and superb quality audio up to 300m using standard CAT5, Cat5e, Cat6. Designed for use in Digital Signage applications, the innovative design allows for flexible distribution that can grow in line with project developments and ensures direct delivery of crystal clear communication to consumers at the point of decision. The AdderLink AV Series avoids the prohibitive costs of fibre optic cabling, displays with built in CPUs or locating a CPU next to each screen.
The AdderLink AV Series consists of 4 interchangeable units;
AdderLink AV 100T transmitter and AdderLink AV100R
- Sold individually or as a pair (AdderLink AV 100P)
- Extends high-resolution video and high fidelity audio up to 300m
- Local port on transmitter to connect local screen and speakers or for cascading other AdderLink AV 100T transmitter units
- AdderLink AV 100R duplicates input from transmitter allowing for 2 video and 2 audio outputs
- Can be used as a receiver up to 300m from AdderLink AV 100T or AdderLink AV 104T transmitters
AdderLink AV 104T transmitter
- Extends a single high-resolution video and high fidelity audio signal to 4 different receivers
- Local port to connect local screen and speakers or to cascade to other AdderLink AV 104T transmitter units
AdderLink AV 101R receiver unit
Duplicates input from transmitter allowing for 2 video and 2 audio outputs
Integrated skew adjustment allowing the receiver to be located further from the transmitter and/or cope with higher video resolutions
Can be used as a receiver up to 300m from AdderLink AV 100T or AdderLink AV 104T transmitters
Has local cascade port allowing for other receivers to be cascaded from the original receiver
1600 x 1280 at distances up to 200 metres/650 feet, 1280 x 1024 at distances up to 300 metres/1000 feet. Extension distance
Up to 300 meters/1000 feet using CATx (x=5,5e,6,7).
Differential analogue signalling for video signals.
Finely adjustable cable equalisation amplifiers enable the video sharpness and brightness to be independently adjusted using the dials on the side of the receiver units.
Integral DeSkew (AdderLink AV101R only)
Skew compensation adjustments can be made using the two rotary dials on the AdderLink AV101R receiver unit. The first dial affects the relationship between green and blue colour signals, the second red and green. The cable skew is produced due to wire length differences between different twisted pairs in a CATx cable that arise due to the different twist rates used to reduce signalling cross talk. The amount of cable skew seen depends on the cable type used and the cable length. The AdderLink AV101R provides up to 62ns of DeSkew with a fine 2ns resolution. This means that high-resolution video can be accurately DeSkewed even at long cable distances. The DeSkew supports 300MHz bandwidths, which means that the DeSkew function does not adversely affect the video quality.
The remote and local units are fitted with two indicators; red shows the presence of power into the module, green indicates the presence of a video input.
Transmitted as digital signals to ensure high fidelity and low noise levels. Phase locked sampling clocks ensure that there are no unwanted clicks when no sound is being played.
Rack mount options
Both the local (computer-end) and remote (display-end) units may be rack mounted in the AdderLink AV Series rack mount chassis. The chassis enable 16 units to be mounted in 3U of 19-inch rack space. The units are rack mounted using the optional rack mount faceplate.
