Adder KVM Technology Helping Power Pioneering IP Workflow for NewTek


Adder Technology, the IP-based, high performance KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) specialist, is demonstrating how its solutions are powering a range of global partners on booth SL4227 at NAB 2018.

Among these is NewTek, a leader in software-driven video production technology, which uses Adder’s KVM technology to help run the world’s only end-to-end IP workflow.

In particular, visitors will be able to see how the ADDERLink Range of KVM extenders is being used to power the latest version of NewTek’s iconic TriCaster® TC1, a complete production system for producing programs, performances, events and live sports in true 4K ultra high definition (UHD) resolution with support for native 2160p video at 60 frames per second.

“Adder has a passion for creating products that exceed expectations and have been recognized by NewTek as a unique solution provider when customers require complete, uncompressed and lossless extension of video data,” commented Will Waters, senior director of IP workflow at NewTek.

“The highly reliable, plug-and-play design of Adder KVM extenders makes them extremely easy to use, helping our customers with everything they need to create professional video programs up to and including UHD, 4K and multiple screen configurations,” Waters added.

“We’re delighted to be able to showcase our multi-year collaboration with NewTek by including the TriCaster technology within our NAB stand set-up – allowing us to highlight yet another broadcast solution that is powered by KVM technology. The company is using innovation to fundamentally change the way video is created and used, something that resonates with Adder, as we endeavor to support the industry with our technology to enable these changes,” says Jamie Adkin, VP sales for EMEA, Adder Technology.
