Stand Q195, ISE 2014 Even richer function over single CATx HD Connectivity will be showing a live demo of Just Add Power’s latest HDIP-2G platform enhancements, including real-time HDMI snapshot previewing, JPEG image splash and seamless video wall switching at ISE (Integrated Systems Europe) 2014 at the Amsterdam RAI, 4-6 February 2014 (Hall 7 Stand Q195). HD Connectivity Just Add Power more-play The Just Add Power HDIP-2G series is the market leading HDMI over IP-based video switching and distribution solution. Offering limitless HDMI distribution, video wall scaling and incredible integrator tools. Installers are able to deliver large multi-zone HDTV and video wall projects by harnessing the flexibility and scalability of Ethernet networks to overcome fixed port size input/output constraints of legacy HDMI Matrix to achieve always the right size system. More Play™ 5.20 Software The HDIP-2G platform is continually made better with new features and improved performance through regular (and free) firmware updates to dealers. No other video distribution solution in the world delivers so much rich function over a single CATx cable. Just Add Power call this incredible feature-set ‘More Play’™, the latest features to have been added in version 5.20 are: Real-time HDMI snapshot Users can preview what’s being shown on a source or at a display a source output or display with a ‘HDMI snapshot’ on your controller. HDIP-2G can pull a BMP picture from the source device, giving the ability to take a real-time HDMI ‘snapshot’ that allows the user to be certain what is being shown anywhere on the HDMI over IP network at all times with a one-page overview. Users can preview the video of a source device on controller before choosing to switch to it. Real-time HDMI snapshot video demonstrations: PC-based controller software example – http://ppl.ug/YuE1yb0BBNY/ Browser-based mobile device example – http://ppl.ug/7uaCBn22NfY/ Video wall controller example – http://ppl.ug/sb1QRkBP-k8/ JPEG Image Splash Users can load and push JPEGS to be shown on any, or all of the display locations, which can be used as a failsafe image fallback. If the network goes down, the saved picture, or pictures can automatically be shown instead of an annoying blank screen. Image splash can also be used a deliberate marketing tool, as support for storing multiple JPEG images enables HDIP devices to also function as digital signage players. Just Add Drivers The Just Add Drivers project from Just Add Power is an ongoing software development program to make sure that installing an HDMI over IP network is as easy as possible for the Custom Installer community.

These turnkey drivers take all the complexity out of the process and eliminate the need to understand the very inner workings of the HDIP network. These drivers also give easy access to the full range of features on the HDMI over IP network devices, such as serial ports and CEC control. www.hdconnectivity.com
