Products

Just Add Power products let you create any size of matrix of networked HDMI devices. HD over IP transmitters encode HDMI video for distribution over the local area network. Receivers decode the network packet back into a HDMI signal ready to be displayed on a screen. Second generation (2G) products support a maximum resolution of Full HD 1080p, whilst third generation (3G) products can distribute 2160p and HDCP 2.2 encrypted content.


3G Ultra HD over IP Platform

3G is the latest evolution in HDMI over IP and has a suite of features tailored for professional integrators. 3G Ultra HD over IP models have primarily been created to accommodate the need within the CI industry to be able to more easily and more affordably distribute 2160p / Ultra HD / 4K content with HDCP 2.2 encryption to multiple displays (HDMI 2.0 or otherwise) over a local area network. Thanks to 3G’s scaling capabilities, using purely 3G models of TX and RX makes any resolution of content up to and including 4K available on any integrated screen.
