Just Add Power Ships 3G Ultra HD Over IP Converter


Officially launched at CEDIA 2015, Just Add Power’s new 3G Ultra HD over IP “platform” claims to provide a video matrixing of 4K signals via HDMI 2.0 and HDMI 1.x sources to any combination of HDMI 2.0 and 1.x screens over a Gigabit network and Cat 5e/6 cabling infrastructure. By using Just Add Power’s 3G Ultra HD over IP transmitters and receivers alongside a Layer 3 Gigabit Managed switch, integrators can build any size of 4K-capable / HDCP 2.2-compliant HDMI matrix and be guaranteed that each integrated screen will display source content in the highest resolution at a color bit depth of 4:2:0 — so there is some color bandwidth limitation.

Designed for home routing projects where integrators have full-resolution capable 4K / HDMI 2.0 TVs in the primary viewing zones but legacy 1080p / 720p TVs elsewhere such as in bathrooms and pool areas, the 3G Ultra HD over IP transmitters and receivers can be deployed alongside a Gigabit managed switch to make a 4K source device with HDCP 2.2, such as the Sony FMP-X10 UHD player, Red Ray 4K player or NVidia Shield, be simultaneously viewed in 2160p (4K UltraHD) on 4K displays, in 1080p on Full HD displays, and in lower resolutions on earlier HD TVs. All scaling and HDCP handling is carried out by Just Add Power’s 3G receivers, located behind each screen. And, the scaling is bi-directional, meaning that the 3G receivers can downscale a 4K signal with HDCP 2.2 to 1080p or lower for viewing on HDMI 1.x screens and also upscale a Full HD 1080p or lower signal from any HDMI 1.x device, outputting it at a maximum of 4K 2160p for viewing on 4K TVs.

Some other features of the platform include:

  • Build any size of network of HDMI devices, with video matrixing applications possible from as small 2×2 to as big as 4000×65000
  • In addition to video matrixing, it can also be used point to point to extend one HDMI 2.0 or 1.x source to distances of 330ft over Cat 5e/6 cable or can be used to split HDMI 2.0 or 1.x one source to multiple displays
  • Input 2160p Ultra HD resolutions up to 60Hz 4:2:0- HDMI 2.0 devices with HDCP 2.2 is supported
  • Instant seamless switching between any resolution HDMI source (2160, 1080, 720, 576, 480, interlaced or progressive)
  • Mix and match legacy HD monitors with new HDMI 2.0 monitors in the same network thanks to seamless
  • HDCP conversion
  • Supports uncompressed lossless multi-channel Audio formats including Dolby Atmos, Dolby True HD and DTS: X
  • Supports PCM 2.0 audio
  • Dolby down-mixing from 5.1- 5.1 compressed audio can optionally be converted to Dolby PLII and output as stereo 2.0 in individual zones
  • Stereo compressed audio extractor with programmable delay on TX and RX
  • Controllable analog audio with ground loop isolator
  • MIC-IN and LINE-IN ports on Transmitter (mix w/HDMI)
  • Independent RS232 matrix on LAN
  • Integrated Null-Modem on RS232
  • Two-Way CEC over IP Communications
  • USB 2.0 over IP supported for KVM applications
