Just Add Power to Debut New Products at CEDIA 2017

Just Add Power (J+P) will demonstrate what it’s claiming will be the world’s first 4K network video tiler, the 3G+4+ Tiling Transmitter and Switch Please, a new web application that allows for matrix switching of J+P devices from any web browser, along with its new Plug-Play-Present firmware.

Now shipping, J+P will demonstrate its 3G+4+ Tiling Transmitter. This device can be applied to any size residential installation requiring multiview functionality, providing video support for resolutions up to full 4K with HDR compatibility. Added to the J+P Ultra HD over IP matrix switching system, it enables users to simultaneously watch four video sources in multiple formats, including single-screen, video wall or tiled video. Once tiled, the video feed can be distributed to an unlimited number of screens, making it the ideal solution for commercial spaces. It gives integrators the power to create up to four customizable windows with easy presets, picture-in-picture or picture-over-picture and adjust the transparency of images for multi-layered, dynamic displays. Multiple tiling transmitters can be stacked together to add more sources and allow an infinite number of windows within windows.

Also at the show, J+P will reveal its new Switch Please web application. Designed for both desktop and mobile, the application allows for matrix switching of all J+P 2G and 3G devices from any web browser. The system is dynamically generated based on the switch configuration. Once installed, Switch Please gives installers and end-users the ability to use the Image Pull feature for live video preview, custom name their sources and displays, and show/hide displays and sources on the app interface.

J+P will also display updates to its Plug-Play-Present firmware, which adds logic control to all J+P transmitters, as well as two new additions to the company’s 3G Ultra HD over IP platform. Users connect any source to any HDMI or VGA transmitter, and the transmitter does all the work. Designed for any size of 4K HDMI distribution and HDMI matrixing application, the new entry-level 3G Ultra HD over IP models allow integrators to mix and match components in a system to better manage their hardware budget on projects with 4K HDMI distribution requirements — including 4K with HDR distribution — without sacrificing enhanced functionality such as audio extraction, downmixing from Dolby 5.1, and CEC control in zones.
