Fanless, small form factor, HDMI, USB and Audio Extender, Switch or Matrix

The AdderLink XDIP is a compact, easy to install, fanless matrix solution that runs on a standard IP network and enables users to extend and manage their computers with ultra-low latency, HD video and stereo audio. The XDIP is scalable, from simple extension to small matrix. It is very well suited to small and medium sized installations.

• Uses IP technology over standard CATx network cable
• Point-to-point, switching, sharing or small matrix operation
• Local USB and video feed through ports
• PoE models are powered by PoE or an optional external PSU
• USB2.0 (low & full speed) for keyboard, mouse, tablet and touch screen
• Analog audio with headphone support Standard IP network

  • SUN compatible
  • PC compatible
  • Mac compatible

Configurable units

The XDIP user and computer units are the same and assigned a role at set up. They can transmit/receive up to 1920×1200 video, stereo analog audio and USB2.0 over a single CATx network cable.

High quality video, real time control

XDIP implements low latency, high quality, 60Hz video compression to deliver an “at the computer” user experience over a standard Gigabit LAN.

CATx cable for connection

Video, USB2.0 and audio all pass along a single minimum spec of CAT5e cable allow ing use of existing infrastructure cables in the building and an immediate ROI. Distance is linked to the IP standard of 100m with a 40% overhead for safety. Longer distances are achieved by routing through your IP infrastructure.

Feed through and local computer support

Video and USB feed through ports are available. These enable a local console at the source computer. A local computer is also supported at the user station.

One solution, many uses

XDIP nodes can be configured as a simple extender, distributed KVM switch or KVM sharer or any combination up to 8 computers and 8 users (each user does not necessarily need to be connected to the same 8 computers).

EDID management

The extender has intelligent EDID management to allow the true characteristics of the monitor to be passed back to the computer or alternatively, a fixed EDID can be specified.

Plug and Play

There is no need for drivers or software to be installed. A simple wizard takes you through setup at the start of life of the product.

CD-quality analog audio

CD-quality stereo audio (16-bit sampling at 48kHz) is passed between the local and remote units. Headphones are also supported (16 to 32 Ohms).
