Adder AV8PRO-DVI-US overview

  • 1Description

Designed with the ability to support one video head per channel, the ADDERView 8 PRO Dual Link DVI-I Video & Peripheral Switch from Adder allows users to control up to eight computer systems and share peripherals between them using a single display, keyboard, and mouse. Dual-Link DVI-I support enables both digital and analog display compatibility at resolutions, including 2560 x 1600 for medical imaging, 2048 x 1080 for 2K film post-production, or a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1920.

In addition to straight switching, the KVM, speakers, and two separate USB devices attached to AV8PRO-DVI units can either be switched in unison or mixed between any of the systems to suit your current tasks. For example, you could be creating emails on one system, listening to a soundtrack from another, sending documents to a printer from a third, and performing a separate task with another USB peripheral on the fourth. The front panel on the AV8PRO-DVI helps make it easy to identify and control which peripherals should connect to each system. Additionally, USB True Emulation technology helps ensure the full characteristics of the connected keyboard and mouse are fully utilized on each system, including extra function keys, wheels, buttons, and controls that are commonly found on modern keyboards and mice.

The ADDERView 8 PRO Dual-Link DVI-I Video & Peripheral Switch is well-suited for those working in broadcast and government/federal industries. Supported operating systems include Windows, Mac, DOS, Linux, UNIX, BSD, Sun, NetWare, and more. Included is a 205W power adapter, a power cord, and four self-adhesive rubber feet, two 19" rackmount brackets with four screws, and a flash upgrade serial cable.

General Features

Dual-Link DVI-I with Extended Profile DDC EDID
The ADDERView 8 PRO features full Dual-Link DVI-I video, delivering up to high resolutions at 60 Hz. As the ADDERView features DVI-I, you can also use a mixture of digital or analog sources without swapping cables. The extended DDC EDID profile helps ensure that the switched graphics card is optimized to work with your screen, and the Dual Link DVI-I capabilities further enable users to work at resolutions including 2K (2048 x 1080) for film post-production or WQXGA (2560 x 1600) for detailed medical imaging.
True Emulation USB 2.0 Technology
The AV8PRO-DVI features True USB Emulation technology. Emulated USB provides a quick and reliable switching action and helps make keyboard hotkey and mouse switching possible. True Emulation technology means that you can now use the extra keys, wheels, buttons, and controls that are commonly found on modern keyboards and mice. It also means that you can use keyboards that were previously not fully compatible with KVM switches.
Independent Simultaneous Device Selection
Flexibility is key to the ADDERView PRO. The switch enables you to use the KVMA console to work on one computer whilst your USB peripherals are connected to other computers and your speakers are playing music from yet another. You can choose how the switching action works by selecting different switching modes from the On-Screen-Display. Furthermore, the OSD shows you visually which peripheral is connected to which computer, so it's easy to remain in full control.
Keyboard, Mouse, or OSD Channel Selection
The ADDERView PRO can be switched using selectable keyboard hotkeys, 3-button mice, or the front panel controls. An OSD function is also provided, which enables you to name and select computers and configure the PRO's operation. Some high-resolution professional screens will only display native resolutions, so the ADDERView automatically senses the display's preferred resolution to help ensure that the OSD is always displayed in the most effective way. This feature helps to ensure compatibility with high-end display devices.
Broad USB 2.0 High Speed Device Support
A vast range of USB devices can be connected to the ADDERView. From non-standard human interface devices to printers and scanners, this helps gives flexibility. For example, you could be scanning a set of documents onto one computer while working on another and printing from yet another, all at the same time. The USB 2.0 switching action has been carefully engineered to helps ensure maximum computer reliability when connecting and disconnecting USB devices.
RS232 Port for Control, Synchronization, and Upgrades
An RS232 interface enables the AV8PRO-DVI to be remotely switched using simple ASCII codes. When the channel is switched, the same ASCII codes are echoed to the RS232 port. By linking RS232 ports, two or more units can be switched in synchrony to create a multi-video head switching system. The serial port enables a four- (RC4) or eight-button (RC8) switch unit to be used with the ADDERView. The same RS232 port can also be used to upgrade the firmware.
