Adder Technology BY DAVID FOX

The new AdderLink Infi nity 2102 (ALIF2102) offers a host of new features, including a smaller form factor transmitter and DisplayPort connections. It is available as a transmitter and receiver, and the new form factor transmitter helps maximise limited rack space.

product manager, Adder, said: “The ALIF2000 series has been a trusted and proven IP KVM [Keyboard Video Mouse] solution for our customers for many years. It’s at the heart of thousands of KVM systems around the world. Our customers expect connectivity choice and migration options that refl ect the ever-changing landscape of their networks and workfl ows, and the ALIF2102 solution does just that. Not only that but the new ALIF2102 is compatible with

the existing ALIF2000 series products, which means customers can migrate at their own pace.” The latest updates to the ALIF2000 series provide increased control, fl exibility and choice for customers when it comes to connectivity, with the current DVI version being joined by DisplayPort connections. Support for video resolutions up to 2560x1600 allows users to visualise their data



Arqiva has won a two-year contract with A+E Networks EMEA to deliver VoD services to around 35 European head end affi liate platforms via the cloud.

The contract extension will see Arqiva implement a completely cloud-based setup that will allow A+E Networks to bring audiences an expanded library of on-demand content until at least 2023. Over the past three years Arqiva has delivered a hybrid version, but as it has continually enhanced its cloud capabilities, it will now work with A+E Networks to shift all existing archived content to an entirely virtual environment. Arqiva’s offering is tailored by the creation of custom workfl ows suitable for A+E’s destination platform specifi c requirements. This features an end-to-end cloud-contained journey that takes content from the archive, then processes, packages and delivers it to platforms such as Amazon Prime, Apple TV+, Sky Italia, MediaSet and M7 Group for on-demand viewing. Processing VoD requests in the cloud drives signifi cant cost-savings, and also enables

Arqiva to process and deliver more assets, at the same time and at a far quicker pace. To simplify the process for A+E and bring consistency, Arqiva has also worked to drive standardisation procedures, by developing a house format that can be produced once and then distributed across multiple affi liate platforms. Chris Alner, commercial

director – commercial broadcast & radio, Arqiva, said: “This deal represents an important milestone for Arqiva, as A+E Networks will become one of our fi rst customers to leverage an entirely cloud- based solution. We’ve gained extensive expertise around

cloud infrastructure since beginning our journey with A+E Networks three years ago, and we’re pleased that we’ve been chosen against strong competition to continue delivering on its goal to achieve an entirely cloud- based platform.” Matt Westrup, SVP

technology & operations, A+E Networks EMEA, added: “Our VoD fulfi lment has grown with breathtaking speed and it has been a competitive advantage to be able to meet these complex demands with an effi cient, reliable and scalable VoD solution from Arqiva. Their teams treat our customers and content as if it were their own.”

The latest addition to the Black Box Emerald family, Emerald GE is claimed to be the industry’s fi rst system that enables multiple users to connect simultaneously and control a virtual machine (VM) just as they would a physical system. Emerald GE has incorporated PC-over-IP (PCoIP) and PCoIP Ultra technology to support VM sharing and to ensure a secure, high-defi nition and responsive computing experience. As it allows collaboration across physical and virtual machines, it should allow broadcasters to work together more effi ciently in remote production scenarios. The new Emerald ZeroU DisplayPort transmitter is just a little bigger than a smartphone and works with any Emerald receiver to give users a seamless desktop experience anywhere on a TCP/IP network.

rack-space use. The new, compact form factor means that three ALIF2102 transmitters fi t into 1U of rack space. It also saves energy, using up to 50% less power than its predecessor.

Supporting visually lossless, HD DisplayPort video up to 1920x1200 and requiring less than 40Mbps of bandwidth for 1080p video, the transmitter brings high-performance connectivity to a wide variety of applications, including broadcast and post production. Emerald Vue is a new KVM switch that addresses broadcasters’ need for advanced 4K image processing and robust system switching with instant responsiveness. It enables the operation of multiple DisplayPort computers from a single console while facilitating simultaneous monitoring of four video sources spread across two screens.

The multiview KVM switch delivers up to 4K60 image quality and allows users to arrange windows freely on the screen or in preconfi gured screen layouts, such as full screen, quad view or picture-in-picture. Real-time switching between sources via keyboard, API or GPIO gives users convenient control over the production process.
