This concept was winner of ‘Best Multiroom AV’ product for Just Add Power at CEDIA Dallas in 2015 and is designed for matrixing any combination of 4K, full HD 1080p and lower resolutions from HDMI 2.0 or earlier version HDMI devices over a GB network.

The most relevant addition to the platform for the commercial market is the 3G+AVP Rackmount Transmitter.

This 1U rack-mountable device with three 3G+AVP Ultra HD over IP transmitters delivers 4K with HDPC 2.2 support, 1080p or lower resolution content from three HDMI 2.0 or 1.x sources over a local area network using a Layer 3 Gigabit managed switch, to be decoded by a 3G+AVP receiver at the display locations.

The 3G+AVP receivers are able to downscale a 4K signal with HDCP 2.2 to 1080p 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 screens.

There is also a selectable pass-through mode on each receiver, which delivers the same video resolution output by the source directly to the screen, useful for new 4K panels with scaling functionality as it allows the installer to choose which upscaling process is best for the client’s application.

In addition to new 3G Ultra HD over IP products, a new 19in Razor Shelf accessory device will be on show that can hold up to 13 individual Just Add Power 2G/2G+ or 3G transmitters or receivers vertically in any desired combination.

As Just Add Power products work in conjunction with a Layer 3 Gigabit Managed Switch to allow the construction of any size of HDMI matrix with any desired combination of inputs from 2×2 to 4000 x 65000, the maker says the ability to more neatly integrate large numbers of individual products into a rack will be welcomed, particularly on commercial HDMI over IP installs.
