Provider of keyboard/video/mouse (KVM) solutions, Adder Technology has what it’s calling the world's smallest IP-based KVM transmitter. The ADDERLink INFINITY 100T (ALIF100T) addresses customer demands for less cramping in the rack. Tim Conway, Vice President, Adder Technology, Americas says, “The industry is increasing demands on the control room, but isn't building bigger rooms. And in today's broadcast server room, some customers attach a value upwards of $3,000 per 1U of rack space. The ALIF100T is the answer. It entirely eliminates rackspace requirements, while providing significant cost savings.”
The ALIF100T KVM transmitter can be powered via USB and is easily retrofitted into any existing infrastructure without the need for recabling, moving computers, or changing racking, reportedly reducing the overall cost of migrating from analog to digital. It can be plugged straight into the back of any computer like a dongle, taking up Zero U of rack mounting space. Scalable, it also enables broadcasters to grow their system without needing more rack space.
The dongle's small form factor also benefits remote broadcast trucks, which have even less space internally than larger data centers. Additionally, the ALIF100T allows broadcasters to link its remote units together and consumes just 2W of power. To get a better handle saving Rackspace, checkout the ALIF100T datasheet.
