Just Add Power’s tech line up revealed for CEDIA Expo
As well as holding its annual CEDIA party on 12th September at 7pm, and giving away three classic red bullseye-designed Kramer ’84 guitars throughout the show, Just Add Power (J+P) has now unveiled its technology line up for this years’ CEDIA Expo.
On Booth #1817, J+P will highlight a range of solutions designed to simplify multiroom video installations for the residential market, including the CEDIA debut of the 3G+ 767DSS Dante Enhanced Sound System transmitter, as well as the new Warp Engine transmitter/receiver, Instant Install application, and slim two-gang HDMI wall plate, all making their world debuts.
“This year at CEDIA, visitors to our booth will experience a variety of products that introduce exciting new capabilities to the Ultra HD over IP ecosystem,” explained Taft Stricklin, sales team manager at J+P.
“Our 767DSS transmitter adds compatibility with Dante and AES67 audio networks, while the Warp Engine allows installers to get creative with their video walls by mounting displays at any angle.
“In addition, the Instant Install application takes all the guesswork out of any project – integrators who have seen it in action have been floored by its speed and reliability – while our new HDMI wall plate offers a slim design for installation flexibility.”
The 767DSS transmitter allows installers to input up to eight audio channels from the J+P system for playout on Dante-enabled and AES67 devices and extract up to eight channels from the audio network for playout across the J+P system. It is backward-compatible with legacy two-channel Dante and AES67 devices while offering higher performance with lower compression – bit rates of 176.4 and 192 kHz – and latency as low as 0.25 ms on Gigabit Ethernet.
The new Warp Engine gives installers the ability to rotate any HDMI source including cable boxes, media players, game systems, cameras, etc, in a J+P matrix in 0.1-degree increments in real time for incredibly low latency. The rotated image can then be sent to an unlimited number of receivers in the network, allowing for the creation of large artistic video walls using a single Warp Engine. Fully HDCP-2.2 compliant, the unit can be added to any J+P 3G or 2GΩ/3G system running Just OS.
Part of Just OS, the Instant Install application allows installers to incorporate any gigabit switch that supports jumbo frames, managed of not, into their J+P matrix, by connecting their devices anywhere on the switch and clicking a single button, meaning their devices are found and configured and a driver is built – in under two minutes.
Also being shown is J+P’s new two-gang HDMI wall plate. Less than one-in deep, it gives installers flexibility of mounting it in a table, podium, or the thin walls of international installations. The thin wall plate features a field-serviceable modular design, making it easy to service with a screwdriver in the event of damage.
