ADDERLink INFINITY 24-Channel Manager Device
The A.I.M. management server (AIM-24) is a control suite which transforms AdderLink Infinity extenders into a digital matrix solution. Using standard IP infrastructure it is possible to route any user station to any computer attached to the network without any compromises to video quality or control. It allows co-operative sharing of computers and the multicasting of video to any destination.
- Includes 24 End Points (expandable up to infinite primary & failover end points)
- Intuitive, multi-lingual user interface
- Multiple switching methods
- Configurable user access rights
- Full audit trail
- Easy centralized management
- Open API for 3rd party control
- Sun, PC and Mac compatible
- RJ45 Interface
- Hourly to Weekly automatic database backups
- Centeralized Firmware Updates - Push updates to hundreds of devices, system-wide in minutes
Adder Infinity Use-Cases
With the addition of this AdderLink Infinity management system (A.I.M.), you can turn multiple Adder Infinity point-to-point extenders into a truly scalable digital KVM matrix system that allows any workstation to link with any computer connected to the network.
ADDERLink INFINITY as an Extender
In its simplest form, you can use the ADDERLink INFINITY as a point to point extender. Simply connect a Tx to an Rx using CAT6 cable up to 330ft (100m) in length. This will deliver DVI, Audio and USB perfectly
What if I need to extend beyond 330ft?
For longer cable runs, simply add another network device such as a switch every 330ft (100m), delivering a DVI, audio and USB extender capable of extraordinary distances. The great thing is, you can easily branch off to multiple screens at any point, or build new functionality in over time by adding additional units.
The diagram on the right shows the delivery of a 1640 foot (500 meter) extension using 4 low cost routers.
KVM / AV Switching Network
Switching between targets
With the ADDERLink INFINITY, your network becomes your KVM switch. By changing channels on the receiver, you are switching DVI, USB and Audio while the transmitters not in use continue to emulate the previously connected devices.
By turning your network into a switch, you could potentially create a KVM switch of any size you like, you can add users simply by adding receivers, and even share USB devices at the same time. By creating mixed channels, you can combine video, audio and USB from different destinations.
Sharing a single target
The ADDERLink INFINITY has been designed to allow multiple users to share a single remote computer. You are given three ways to connect; View only (shows video only), Shared (presents an open connection that others can use at the same time) or Exclusive (once selected, no other user can either view, or share with the exception of system administrators - configurable).
Multicasting to many receivers
A unique feature of ADDERLink INFINITY is its ability to multicast video and audio across the network. When a channel is being multicast, it does not create any additional traffic, instead, all receivers latch onto the same IP data flowing across the network.
With the ADDERLink INFINITY you have the capability to multicast content to as many receivers as you like, there is no limit, and no limit on distance (network dependent).
