By Jyothi Shanbhag, TMCnet Contributor

Adder has introduced the long-awaited latest generation of miniaturized AV transmitters that works with the company’s ADDERLink AV 100 Series, at an industry event.

The company has built the new ALAV102T to helps users to transmit audio and video content to two separate receivers, each of which can drive two back-to-back screens.

This solution promises to offer pin sharp images using the AV100 series assuring that the system owner's investment in content production is not wasted, and what the viewer sees is exactly what the owner intended. Combined with crystal clear CD quality audio, ALAV102T produces an immersive media experience up to 300 meters (1,000 feet) away, said the company officials.

Leveraging the RS232 interface, the ALAV102T can be controlled to switch transmission paths on and off, enabling you to manage screen content remotely, helping the user to save power and reduce screen hours, further enhancing return on investment.

Also, this innovative product line from Adder (News - Alert) is the first ofa  kind from the company in the AV transmitter range, which features new AV-KVM port. This flexible port arrangement enables either an AV receiver or CATx KVM switch or receiver to be connected to each of the two CATx ports. This enables playout servers to be managed easily from a KVM over IP switch whilst also delivering content to remote screens.

The company officials said the new ALAV102T is smaller in size when compared to the current AV100 series transmitters, allowing the unit to be neatly located. Because all the connectivity required is built in to the unit, cable clutter is reduced dramatically.

This unit also comes with two power options and can be powered by the host computers USB port, or driven using an external USB power adapter.
