At CEDIA 2018, Just Add Power (J+P) will demonstrate the new 3G Ultra HD over IP Series Daisy Chain Receiver and launch Just OS, its family of firmware and app-based solutions for control and management of video distribution on any network.

Just OS will feature the company’s latest firmware update, Every Switch Supported (ESS), which provides switching capability to make integration even easier.

The company is also hosting two trainings during the show, and a special CEDIA celebration at House of Blues San Diego.

“Every year, as video sources and display locations increase, video distribution becomes more complex and expensive using traditional matrix and custom cable options,” J+P sales team manager Taft Stricklin says.

“Just Add Power is committed to making the distribution chain simpler by utilizing the power of the network. What we’re doing at CEDIA this year will allow integrators to build an unconstrained video distribution system easily in up to 4K quality for every application and budget.”

J+P will display the new VBS-HDIP-3G 509POE Daisy Chain Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) receiver. It distributes Ultra HD and 4K video over a single Cat-5e cable without the need for fiber. With the onboard pass-through network port, any PoE device can be connected — a network soundbar, IPTV control, or a single display location can be expanded into a video wall. The receiver also expands the number of PoE devices that can be added to the system by connecting a PoE switch to the port.
