HDMI over IP specialist Just Add Power has confirmed four new product launches for ISE 2016. Two  are additions to its 3G Ultra HD over IP platform, used to matrix any combination of 4K, Full HD 1080p and lower resolutions over a gigabit network.

The first is the 3G+AVP Rackmount transmitter.This 1U device has three 3G+AVP Ultra HD over IP transmitters built in and delivers 4K with HDPC 2.2 support, 1080p or lower res content from three HDMI sources over a network using a Layer 3 Gigabit Managed Switch; decoding is handled by a 3G+AVP Receiver at the display locations.

3G+AVP receivers are able to downscale a 4K signal with HDCP 2.2 to 1080p for viewing on early HDMI screens as well as upscale 1080p from any HDMI device.

The second addition to the range is the 3G+HIFI transmitter with local HDMI output for 4K projects that require support for uncompressed multichannel audio (including Dolby Atmos and DTS: X).

With all 3G Ultra HD over IP products, integrators need one transmitter per HDMI source, one receiver per display and a Layer 3 Gigabit Managed Switch with a suitable number of ports in order to create any size of 4K-capable HDMI matrix with HDCP 2.2 support and 4K to 1080p up/downscaling capabilities.  

This third generation of Just Add Power hardware would typically be used for projects in which integrators are faced with having 4K HDMI 2.0 panels with HDCP 2.2 in the primary viewing zones but legacy 1080p or earlier panels elsewhere. 4K sources, such as the Sony FMP-X10 UHD player or Amazon Fire TV 4K, can be viewed in 2160p on 4K displays and in 1080p elsewhere, without any additional signal management. Also new for ISE 2016  is a 19-inch Razor Shelf accessory device that can hold up to 13 individual Just Add Power 2G/2G+ or 3G transmitters or receivers vertically in any desired combination.

Finally, making its ISE debut is an IR Dongle: an RS232 to IR converter that allows for full IR control of integrated sources and displays in any 2G/2G+ or 3G HDMI over IP install. Compatible with all Just Add Power devices with serial ports, it reduces hardware costs associated with HDMI over IP installs, where previously extra control system hardware would have been necessary to deliver IR control.
