FEATURES of Extender - USB Digital Audio / Video Extender by Adderlink X50:

Fully transparent low/full speed USB
Utilising a unique method of USB communication, the AdderLink X50 delivers the highest possible levels of USB compatibility. With an integrated 4 port hub the X50 supports all USB 1.1 and 2.0 low/full speed devices.

Video performance
Crisp, clear and industry leading video quality at very high resolutions of 1920 x 1200 to 50m

Video compensation
The AdderLink X50 allows for a great range of very smooth and fine adjustments enabling the user to adjust the video picture to their exact preference.

True DDC Emulation
Unless an extender actively supports DDC some high performance video cards cannot be used at high resolutions. The AdderLink X50 fully supports 2-page DDC ensuring all possible resolutions are supported.

Fully platform independent
As the AdderLink X50 supports fully transparent USB connections it is able to support all common hardware platforms including PC, Sun and MAC and their associated peripherals.

Digital audio
Adder's unique digital transmission of audio signals means the AdderLink X50 delivers clickless, 44.1kHz CD quality, stereo audio without the need for an additional CATx cable.

Dual Access
For local control of extended computers the AdderLink X50 provides both a local video and audio output at the transmitter unit.

Extended common mode input range
To ensure full operation in all environments and avoid problems such as screen blanking in industrial environments caused for example by large electrical equipment switching, the AdderLink X50 implements a special termination system that allows the common mode
range to be extended.

AdderLink X50-MultiScreen
The AdderLink X50-MultiScreen adds a second video and transparent, high speed RS232 up to baud rates of 19200. This extra functionality adds to the diverse range of solutions for which the AdderLink X50 can be utilised including the extention of computers with dual monitors and allow it to be used in touch screen and interactive kiosk applications.
