Just Add Power to Showcase MaxColor Series 2 at InfoComm 2023

Published: 2023-05-18

Just Add Power, prominent in AV-over-IP distribution, will showcase its latest distributed AV solutions at InfoComm 2023. Integrators will see the latest addition to the company’s 4K60 MaxColorTM Series, the MaxColor 2 transmitter and receiver. Building on the innovation introduced with the MaxColor 1 4K UHD distribution platform, the new solution adds KVM support and a fiber port connect alongside native 4K60Hz in and out.

“Our first MaxColor Series has become the go-to solution for integrators to cost-effectively and reliably distribute UHD over IP — and now, they have another option that will support the most robust applications,” says Taft Stricklin, chief sales officer at Just Add Power. “Our MaxColor 2 is a powerhouse. It distributes 4K60/4:4:4/36-bit color video and with the flexibility of using fiber or copper cable over the network it can suit almost any project. We’ll also share some information about future MaxColor 2 products coming later in the year. And plug you into training that will take all the stress out of AV over IP.”

Features of MaxColor Series 2

Just Add Powers notes that its MaxColor Series 2 can distribute 4K60/4:4:4/36-bit color video over a 1GB managed network using existing Cat X (Cat 5e minimum) cable, or over 10G fiber cable. Thus, integrators can use the cable that best fits their projects. It also boasts a USB-C port, supporting, for example, a USB web camera signal over IP. The company adds that the MaxColor Series 2 comes with the new Audio Return Channel feature. With this, installers can easily send audio from a TV connected to a MaxColor 2 receiver across the network to another MaxColor 2 receiver — connected to an audio-video receiver or another ARC-enabled amplifier. As a result, they can make project design even easier and more flexible.

The MaxColor Series 1 and 2 transmitters and receivers provide integrators with an affordable and scalable 4K UHD distribution platform. With this, it can support today’s 4K source content with high frame rates natively over existing network infrastructures. MaxColor also offers deep-color and 4:4:4 chroma support. It thus ensures that what is seen on the screen matches the output of the source. Moreover, it does so without any subsampling or downscaling. The series also delivers zero detectable latency, instant and seamless switching, 4K up-and-down scaling and HDR management. At the same time, it supports all lossless audio formats, HDR10+, HLG and Dolby Vision for the best viewing experience. Additional features include image pop, push, pull and integrated control.


Manufacturing Sessions

Just Add Power will also lead its manufacturer training, “Stress-free AV Over IP,” on June 15 at 11 a.m. in Room W310AB. The session will share why AV-over-IP solutions are often the best option to meet customers’ demands. Integrators will learn how to design and install those systems without breaking a sweat! Just Add Power’s Jeff Terzo, vice president of global business development and Eric Martin, director of training will lead the session. This lively session will first focus on designing a system. It will then follow up with hands-on demonstrations of setting up and configuring a system. Attendees will also be eligible to earn one RU toward CTS, CTS-D or CTS-I certifications.
