Just Add Power Builds Upon Systems Approach With Third-Generation Ultra HD Over IP Video Distribution Platform

5/18/2017 5:50 PM

LARGO, Fla. -- May 18, 2017 -- Just Add Power (J+P), the leader in Ultra HD over IP, will showcase its award-winning 3G Ultra HD over IP family of transmitters and receivers at InfoComm 2017. Designed for any size UHD distribution and matrixing application, the expanded 3G Ultra HD over IP family offers a variety of devices that enable integrators to mix and match models to better manage their hardware budget on 4K HDMI projects -- including 4K HDR distribution.

"The 3G Ultra HD over IP family uses the same switches, cabling, and control system drivers, while offering a range of features and performance that allow integrators to build upon their existing systems -- much like they would with building blocks," said Ed Qualls, founder and president of J+P. "As demand for 4K signal distribution increases, integrators can update and integrate new J+P devices into existing systems and overcome the difficulty of distributing 4K in installations that combine new 4K displays and legacy 1080p sources."

The J+P 3G Ultra HD over IP transmitters include VBS-HDMI-707 PoE TX, VBS-HDMI-717HIFI PoE TX, VBS-HDMI-718AVP PoE TX, and rackmount VBS-HDMI-749AVP TX. The 718AVP and 749AVP distribute UHD and 4K video over a single Cat-5e cable, along with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio to every zone, and transform to stereo audio for 2-channel zones. In addition to distributing 4K video, the 717HIFI PoE and budget-friendly 707 PoE support all lossless audio formats, including Dolby Atmos(R). The receivers include VBS-HDMI-508 PoE RX and VBS-HDMI-518AVP PoE RX. In addition to HDMI and RS-232 ports, the 518AVP PoE RX includes 3.5mm stereo out and two USB 2.0 ports for USB over IP.

With the addition of the new entry-level 3G Ultra HD over IP transmitter (707 PoE) and the more affordable receiver (508 PoE), integrators now have a more cost-effective 4K over IP platform. These two models offer an essential 4K feature set for 2017 and beyond: 4K with HDR support, HDCP 2.2, optional 4K to 1080p scaling at the display location, two-way RS-232 and IP control, as well as support for all audio formats up to and including Dolby Atmos and DTS:X.

The 3G Ultra HD over IP models can be mixed and matched in the same gigabit network, providing a scalable, systems approach to 4K video signal distribution requirements.

All models of J+P 3G Ultra HD over IP devices are shipping worldwide. For more information, visit www.justaddpower.com.

About Just Add Power
Just Add Power (J+P) was founded in 1992 by a group of former employees from the IBM Corporation. The motivation behind the company and the name was to come to the market with applications that totally support customers, their investment, and are easy to use. With the 2009 introduction of the HDIP(TM) solution for distributing HDMI(R) over IP networks, the company has become well known across many new markets.

The J+P design and manufacturing philosophy is evolutionary, not revolutionary. For example, customers who invested in our solution in 2009 can still purchase new transmitters and receivers today to expand and maintain their system. J+P takes pride in having created an infrastructure that can be sustained and manufactured reliably for many years, making improvements through free firmware updates. When the company adds features that can't be done through firmware alone, it builds new hardware with an eye towards backwards compatibility. The J+P evolutionary product design philosophy ensures the protection of the customers' investment, and increases system value over time.
