Just Add Power Launches MC-QX MaxColor 4K60 Tiling And Warping Transmitter

The latest solution in the MaxColor family delivers the Just Add Power video-Over-IP trifecta — MaxColor, Warp Engine, and Tiler Technology — All In One.

Just Add Power, a leader in AV-over-IP distribution, showcased its latest addition to the MaxColor family of video-over-IP innovations at ISE 2024. The MC-QX combines the company’s MaxColor technology, 4K network video tiler, and Warp Engine technology.

The MC-QX combines MaxColor with the company’s tiling and warping technology in one transmitter. It allows 4K60 source devices to be displayed on a single screen instantly along with source rotation capabilities. Users can simultaneously watch up to four 4K60 video sources in multiple formats, including single-screen, video wall, or tiled video. With the MC-QX warping capability, installers can rotate any source image in a Just Add Power Matrix — cable boxes, media players, game systems, cameras, and more — in 0.1-degree increments in real time with incredibly low latency. The rotated image can then be sent to an unlimited number of receivers in the network, allowing for the creation of massive artistic video walls using a single MC-QX.

Just Add Power’s MaxColor 4K60 technology was introduced in 2021 to natively support 4K60 in and out, allowing end-users to play ultra-HD video from the growing number of 4K sources and devices now available. All MaxColor products can distribute 4K60/4:4:4/36-bit-color video over a 1GB managed network using either CatX (Cat 5e minimum) cable or fiber cable, so integrators can use the cable that best fits their projects. In addition, MC-QX supports MPEG downstreaming for connected devices including laptops and tablets. The series delivers instant and seamless switching, 4K up- and downscaling, and HDR management while supporting all lossless audio formats and Dolby Vision for the best viewing experience.
