Just Add Power to Bring Latest AV-Over-IP Innovations to Total Tech Summit

Just Add Power Will Showcase MaxColor 4K60 UHD Distribution Platform, 718KVM/749KVM Transmitters, ST1 Sound Transceiver, and Dante® Enhanced Sound System Transmitter


SEMINOLE, Fla. Oct. 19, 2022 Just Add Power, a leader in AV-over-IP distribution, will be on hand at this year’s Total Tech Summit, Oct. 26-28, in Orlando, Florida. During the event, the company will showcase its powerful lineup of award-winning AV-over-IP innovations, including the new MaxColor™ 4K60 transmitter and receiver series, new KVM field-modifiable transmitters, 2GΩ/3G ST1 sound transceiver, and 767DSS Dante Enhanced Sound System transmitter.


“The last couple of years have signaled a need for AV-over-IP solutions that can withstand any disruption,” said Taft Stricklin, sales team manager for Just Add Power. “At Total Tech Summit, we’ll be highlighting how we responded to the need for more flexibility, more affordability, and more support. Each of these solutions can empower custom, commercial, and security integrators with anything their install throws at them.”


Just Add Power’s award-winning MaxColor 4K60 Series transmitter and receiver family provides integrators with an affordable and scalable 4K UHD distribution platform to natively support today’s 4K source content over existing network infrastructures. Available and shipping today, the MaxColor distributes video at 36-bit color and 4:4:4 chroma over existing Cat 5/Cat 6 cable, eliminating the expense of upgrading to fiber and buying costly network switches. In addition, the transmitter and receiver support MPEG downstreaming for connected devices, such as a laptop or tablet. The series delivers instant, seamless switching, 4K up- and downscaling, and HDR management while supporting all lossless audio formats and HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision for the best viewing experience. Additional features include image pop, push, and pull as well as integrated control. The company will also offer a first look at its MaxColor RX2 and TX2, which offer the same 4K benefits as the current models with the addition of USB ports for KVM applications and optional fiber port for 10G installations.


Also at the show, integrators will benefit from Just Add Power’s 718AVP and 749AVP transmitters. Built in response to the incredible customer demand for the company’s 718AVP and 749AVP transmitters at a time when the solutions’ Dolby downmixing chipset was in short supply, the 718KVM/749KVM transmitters support keyboard, video, and mouse (KVM) — as well as stereo audio breakout — right out of the box. With the installation of the new Dolby chipset that is now shipping, the transmitters can be modified in the field to deliver full AVP performance.


To address the increasing need for flexible audio support in the AV-over-IP signal chain, integrators will want to see Just Add Power’s ST1. It can function as an input or output, allowing integrators to add a stereo audio source easily to any Just Add Power system, or to extract stereo audio from an existing transmitter. They will also see the industry’s first solution to support the latest Dante eight-channel chipset, the 767DSS. It not only distributes ultra HD and 4K video with HDCP 2.2 over a single Cat-5e cable, but also takes ultra HD over IP systems to the next level by adding compatibility with Dante and AES67 audio networks with separate switching of audio and video. The transmitter is backward-compatible with legacy two-channel Dante and AES67 devices, while offering higher performance with lower compression — bit rates of 176.4 and 192 kHz — and latency as low as 0.25 milliseconds on Gigabit Ethernet.
