Just Add Power 3G Ultra 718 AVP Transmitter Is a 2023 CEDIA Product Hall of Fame Inductee, While the MaxColor 4K60 Series 2 Takes Home Best of Show and CE Pro BEST Awards
SEMINOLE, Fla. — Sept. 19, 2023 — Just Add Power, a leader in AV-over-IP distribution, today announced that at CEDIA Expo 2023 in Denver, the company’s 3G Ultra 718 AVP transmitter was inducted into the CEDIA Product Hall of Fame, while its MaxColor Series 2 won the CE Pro BEST award for AV-over-IP and the Residential Systems Best of Show award. This is the second product from Just Add Power to be inducted into the CEDIA Product Hall of Fame, joining the Just Add Power 2G Platform, inducted in 2019. The MaxColor Series 2 continues its award-winning debut year, having taken home multiple honors in 2023 at ISE, InfoComm, and now CEDIA.
“This is a huge milestone in Just Add Power’s history of delivering AV-over-IP excellence,” said Ed Qualls, CEO and founder at Just Add Power. “At every stage of our product development, we continue to build on features and benefits that will propel the integration and user experience into the future. To have our 3G Ultra transmitter join our 2G platform in the ranks of the elite products that have made a real and lasting impact on the industry is an incredible honor. To have the only two AV-over-IP products currently in the CEDIA Hall of Fame is a testament to the capabilities of the Just Add Power team that continues to develop these indispensable solutions.”
Selected by a panel of judges comprising home technology professionals, CEDIA Product Hall of Fame inductees have transformed the CEDIA industry with the value they provide to integrators and end users. Introduced in 2015, Just Add Power’s 3G Ultra 718 AVP transmitter allows integrators to distribute UHD and 4K video to every zone over a single Cat-5e cable along with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio, transforming the signals to stereo audio for two-channel zones. It features ultra-low latency, image pull, instant-seamless switching, PoE, 3.5mm stereo audio output with adjustable delay, and KVM support. Part of Just Add Power’s lineup of 3G Ultra devices, integrators can mix and match to fit their hardware and budget requirements on 4K HDMI projects. The 718 AVP transmitter gives integrators a flexible, scalable solution for distributing UHD as well as stereo and multichannel audio over the network without the expense or limitations of traditional AV matrixes, while at the same time opening doors to applications such as video walls — without additional gear, software, or wiring — and speeding up installations.
Just Add Power’s multi-award winning MaxColor 4K60 Series 2 solutions include all the features and benefits of the MaxColor 4K60 Series 1 products, with even more capabilities to support most robust applications. With the MaxColor Series 2, 4K60/4:4:4/36-bit-color video can be distributed over a 1GB managed network using CatX (Cat 5e minimum) cable or fiber cable, so integrators can use the cable that best fits their projects. It also boasts power over USB-C that can support KVM ora USB web camera signal over IP. With the new ARC feature from Just Add Power, installers can easily send audio from a TV connected to a MaxColor 2 receiver across the network to another MaxColor 2 receiver — connected to an audio-video receiver or another ARC-enabled amplifier — making project design even easier and more flexible. Its ARC and USB features make it ideal for home office, gaming, or Twitch streaming setups.
The MaxColor 4K60 Series 2 transmitter and receiver provide integrators with an affordable and scalable 4K UHD distribution platform to support today’s 4K source content natively with high frame rates over existing network infrastructures. MaxColor offers high-frame-rate, deep-color, and 4:4:4 chroma support to ensure that what is seen on the screen matches the output of the source with no subsampling or downscaling. The series delivers zero detectable latency, instant and 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, pull, and integrated control.
“The MaxColor Series 2 proves that premium features, maximum performance, and unmatched quality can be achieved without breaking an installer’s budget,” said Taft Stricklin, chief sales officer at Just Add Power. “We’re incredibly honored that the Series 2 continues to generate tremendous excitement and interest among our customers and the AV community at large. This recognition reinforces our commitment to delivering cutting-edge solutions that redefine industry standards.”
To date, the MaxColor Series 2 has won four industry awards. In addition to the CE Pro BEST and Residential Systems Best of Show awards at CEDIA Expo 2023, it also has won an ISE 2023 Best of Show from Sound & Video Contractor magazine and an InfoComm 2023 Best of Show from AV Technology.
