The AV4PRO-DP is designed to enable four computers equipped with DisplayPort technology to be controlled from a single KVM console. The switch makes use of Adder’s True Emulation Technology which enables USB HID (Low and Full speed) devices to be continuously emulated to each computer. This unique technology enables instantaneous and reliable hotkey switching whilst also supporting the extra keys and features of enhanced keyboards and mice. Furthermore, the ADDERView includes two independently switchable USB 2.0 channels (Low, Full and High speed) and an audio channel, giving the user the flexibility to attach selected peripherals to different computers.
DisplayPort Video Support
DisplayPort 1.1 compliant (4 lanes at 2.7Gb/s). DisplayPort’s high performance is important for enabling new digital display experiences. For example, DisplayPort can easily support high end monitors featuring 2560 x 1600 resolution at 60Hz refresh rate and 10 bits per color, 1920 x 1200 resolution at 120Hz refresh rate, and Full HD monitors at 1920 x 1080 resolution and 60Hz refresh rate at 12 bits per color without latency, all over standard cables.
USB True Emulation 2.0 Technology
The AV4PRO-DP belongs to the first KVMA range of switches to feature Adder’s advanced USB True Emulation technology. Emulated USB provides an instantaneous and reliable switching action and makes keyboard hotkey and mouse switching possible. However, previous implementations have used only generic emulations and consequently have only been able to support the most basic keyboard and mouse features. Adder’s revolutionary True Emulation technology overcomes this frustrating limitation by emulating the true character of the connected devices to all the computers simultaneously. This means that you can now use the extra function keys, wheels, buttons and controls that are commonly found on modern keyboards and mice. Users in Architecture, Graphic design, Post production, Animation etc. often need to use specialized interface devices such as graphics tablets, 3D explorers, joysticks, and so on. The AV4PRO-DP makes all this possible.
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 of course still switch all connected devices to any one of the connected computers as with any other KVM switch.
Channel Selection Options
The ADDERView Pro can be switched using selectable keyboard hotkeys, 3 button mice or the front panel controls. Optionally, you can also use the RC4 remote switch to make your selection .These switching options allow you to rapidly reassign connected devices to any of the connected computers.
Broad USB 2.0 Hi 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 gives great flexibility. For example, you could be scanning a set of documents onto one computer whilst working on another and printing from yet another, all at the same time. The USB 2.0 switching action has been carefully engineered to ensure maximum computer reliability when connecting and disconnecting USB devices.
Options Port For Control, Synchronization and Upgrade
An ‘Options’ port enables the AV4PRO-DP to be remotely switched using a 4 button switch unit (RC4). By linking ‘Options’ ports, two or more units can be switched in synchrony to create a multi video head switching system. The same port can also be used to upgrade the firmware to guarantee that your hardware investment continues to deliver real value well into the future.
Operates with all known software and operating systems including Windows (all), DOS, Linux, Unix, BSD, all Sun OS, all Mac OS, NetWare etc.
