Adder Announces USB Extension Breakthrough With MiMEQ Video Technology

BOSTON, July 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

Adder [http://www.adder.com ], the expert in connectivity solutions,
today unveils the latest generation of KVMA extender, which features
transparent USB at 300 metres from source over a single cable. Furthermore,
by implementing its new MiMEQ compensation technology, Adder promises better
video quality than any other product in its class. The new X-USB PRO is
available worldwide and replaces the original X-USB extender technology.

X-USB PRO is the first product to offer MiMEQ (Multi-pole Mirror EQ)
cable compensation, which allows the user to precisely model a specific
cable against cable type and cable length. All copper cable has a natural
attenuation curve which causes the strength of a signal to degrade over
distance; by precisely modelling and mirroring the unique attenuation of
almost any cable, Adder achieves the best analogue video quality possible
for any extender of this type.

X-USB PRO is also the first Adder point-to-point KVM extender to deliver
transparent USB at such high distances. Previous generations of KVM extender
have been limited to about one third of this distance, held back in general
by the technical demands of USB. X-USB PRO delivers a real innovation hit
for Adder, combining advanced USB technologies with MiMEQ video compensation
and crystal-clear stereo audio to deliver a true reference-grade,
professional product.

The choice to deliver transparent USB with this product means the user
is not limited by emulation technologies. Instead, the USB signal is passed
without any change or re-interpretation, meaning that the product can be
used with any USB device, including isochronous devices such as webcams or
audio. Every X-USB PRO system also features a local feed through at the
transmission end giving the user a choice of locations to work from, or
allowing for a multi-user system scenario.

The ADDERLink X-USB PRO is available worldwide today. For more
