Just Add Power released the 718KVM and 749KVM transmitters that will take the place of the 718AVPs and 749AVPs models. Built during a time when the solutions’ Dolby downmixing chipset is in short supply, the new transmitters support keyboard, video and mouse (KVM) as well as stereo audio breakout. The transmitters are field-modifiable in the future to have all features of the 718AVP/749AVP once the Dolby chips become more readily available. This strategy will protect dealer investments and give them a path toward full AVP performance.
Just Add Power’s new 718KVM and the rackmount 749KVM will replace the out-of-stock 718AVP and 749AVP indefinitely. Like the AVP models, the new PoE transmitters encode a 4K or lower-resolution source device into an IP signal and send it over the network with ultra-low latency and instant switching. They also support HDCP 2.2 and USB 2.0 and feature image pull, stereo audio output 3.5 millimeters with adjustable delay, RS-232, IR and CEC control of sources.
Once available, the upgrade will enable Dolby DSP, re-encoding Dolby Digital 5.1 as Dolby Pro Logic II for HDMI distribution to both multi-channel and stereo audio zones and provide two analog audio inputs that are mixable with HDMI audio. The KVM transmitters are now shipping.
