At CEDIA Expo, Just Add Power will debut the 2GΩ/3G ST1 Sound Transceiver, an Audio-over-IP component that functions as either an input or output. With the ST1, integrators can add a stereo audio source to any Just Add Power system or extract stereo audio from an existing transmitter. As an audio input, the ST1 feeds stereo audio into a Just Add Power system. Any audio source with an analog audio out — a TV, Sonos amp, CD player or microphone — can be connected and played on any receiver. As an audio output, the transceiver can play any stereo audio content from any Just Add Power device while providing variable audio control.
As a result of this innovation, integrators can easily build a stereo audio distribution matrix with unlimited inputs and outputs that run over network wiring. By combining the transceiver with Just Add Power transmitters and receivers in the same installation, installers now can mix audio and video in new ways.
Just Add Power will also unveil its new MaxColor 4K60 transmitter and receiver series, set to ship in the first quarter of 2022. MaxColor natively supports 4K@60 in and out, allowing end users to play 4K Ultra HD video from the growing number of 4K sources and devices. With MaxColor, 4K 12-bit video can be distributed over an existing Cat 5/Cat 6 cable. The series works with existing Just Add Power drivers and supported control systems. In addition, it supports MPEG downstreaming for connected devices. The series features switching, 4K upscaling and downscaling, all audio formats, HDR management and Dolby Vision.
