The new 2G+4+ device from Just Add Power, global experts in HDMI over IP, is a 1U rack-mountable video tiling processor that enables  integrators to deliver four HDMI sources to a single screen in a variety of viewing modes over a Gigabit managed network.  This new feature is called Image Play™ . This expansion of the More Play™ Solution brings a welcome addition to the already robust Just Add Power feature set, which includes Video Wall App, Image Push™, Image Pull™, and Image Pause™.

In keeping with Just Add Power’s evolutionary design ethos, the 2G+4+ four-input video tiling processor can be mixed and matched in the same network as earlier 2G/2G+/2G+AVPro devices, allowing it to be added retroactively to existing 2G and 2G+ installs with maximum ease for the installer and minimum down time for the site.

One 2G+4+ Tiling Transmitter allows you to watch up to four HDMI sources at the same time on a single display in a variety of viewing modes, including quad view, picture in a picture, and picture on a picture. You can also stack up to five 2G+4+ units and, as a result, actually view up to 16 images simultaneously on a single display.  Additionally, an HDMI pass-through port on the 2G+4+ Tiling Transmitter allows for distribution to a local mirrored display.

The 2G+4+ Tiling Transmitter is built around a powerful SOC scaler that enables a wide range of new applications for Just Add Power users. This includes support for Alpha Blending, PIP, POP, Tiling, Flip, Rotate and Chromakey commands. Each 2G+4+ Tiling Transmitter has four 2G receivers built in with one 2G+AVPro HD/IP post-mix transmitter that puts the tiled image onto the network switch, making it available for every integrated screen in the building. The 1U 2G+4+ chassis has a modular design for easy maintenance and can be mounted in ten different ways.

Whether you are in a residence, or at a sports bar wanting to watch four games at once, a video production operation needing a flexible switching solution with fades and seamless switching, or you are operating a digital signage system and wish to boost revenue by blending content with other live video sources, the 2G+4+ can deliver a high quality HD video viewing experience.
