IBC 2014: KVM specialist Adder Technologies celebrates 30 years15 September 2014
Adder Technology’s stand at IBC 2014 saw balloons, cupcakes, party poppers and the raising of some congratulatory glasses on Saturday as the high-performance keyboard, video and mouse (KVM) specialist marked its 30 years in the industry.
“This was the ideal way to kick off IBC and engage with visitors, invited guests and the media,” said Adrian Dickens, founder and CEO, Adder Technology (pictured). “Innovation is core to our success as a company and celebrating 30 years of it at an event like IBC which is a hot bed of new technologies and advances in the industry, is very fitting.”
Established in 1984, the company has secured a number of international high-profile contracts and helped to change industry perceptions of KVM. Highlights over the years include winning the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation, opening offices in Asia, the USA and Europe, and completing contracts for the likes of BBC and Sydney Opera House.
Adder solutions use standard IP networks as the core infrastructure for a diverse set of applications, including television, film and broadcast, pro AV, medical imaging, air traffic control, command and control, and more. Advantages of IP-based high-performance KVM include lossless compression, redundancy, complete flexibility and pixel perfect content across an IP network.
At IBC, Adder is showcasing the latest developments to its KVM portfolio, including the newly launched IP-based ADDERLink Infinity 1002, CCS-PRO4 and the ADDERLink X-DVI Pro DL. The company’s 4K capabilities also feature, with the upgraded DisplayPort extender, ADDERLink XD522, and the latest ADDERLink Infinity firmware upgrade.
