Product Features


Digital like video: VGA resolutions of 1920 x 1200 @60Hz are achievable at 300m/1000ft. This is achievable by including a variable noise lter which overcomes issues introduced by increased gain as the length of the cable increases over 200m/650ft.


Video compensation: A multi-pole compensation technique is used enable superb video quality at maximum distance over a single cable. For the first time, adjustment can be made for cable type and cable length with further color skew compensation and gain adjustment to ensure crystal clear images, all from the receiver’s keyboard.


Local feed through port: A local feed through port is provided for audio and video so a local console can be used.


USB powered transmitter: The transmitter is powered via the USB port to reduce the need for external power supplies. There is an option for an external power supply if the USB port has insufficient power.


Dual user configuration: Two ADDERLinkTM X-USB PRO units can be linked to a single computer so two users can access the system. When using two sets of X-USB PRO modules to allow two users to access a single computer the arbitration between the users is handled by the USB sub- system of the computer. This means that both users can control the computer at exactly the same time and the resulting keyboard and mouse influences will be an amalgamation of the two inputs


Emulated two page DDC EDID: This extender supports full two page DDC EDID. Some high performance video cards require the two page data or they will not deliver optimal performance.


USB support: The X-USB PRO extends USB2.0 (low and full speed) allowing all USB compatible accessories (including isochronous devices) to be extended. The receiver unit has a built in 4 port USB hub to enable a complete desktop to be located remotely, including a keyboard, monitor, mouse, disk drive, ash memory stick, webcam, and any other device that would normally be plugged into your computer’s USB port.


Audio: Audio transmission delivers CD quality stereo audio for speakers.


Rack options: Both transmitter and receiver units can be used stand-alone or up to 16 units can be mounted into a 2U chassis.
