It is predicted that the global 4K display market will be worth $52bn by 2020, and the launch of the ALIF4000 series is timed to support IP KVM users as they move to 4K environments. What has been the greatest barrier for companies to make the move, and how does the ADDERLink INFINITY 4000 Series (ALIF4000) address their concerns?
Whilst the consumer demand for 4K content is rising, many content creators have hesitated before investing in 4K-ready KVM technology. Traditional chassis-based solutions can be cumbersome and complex, and often require costly hardware upgrades or swap outs to support just one 4K signal. Most customers only require a small percentage of their users to work at 4K all of the time, and therefore the return on investment does not balance. The ADDERLink™ INFINITY 4000 Series (ALIF4000) is fully compatible with the existing ADDERLink INFINITY range which means it can be phased into an existing network without disruption, downtime or the costly need to rip and replace. By introducing the ALIF4000, customers can add 4K functionality into their infrastructure, at a time that is right for them and their business.
The ALIF4000 is best suited for…
The ALIF4000 is the world’s first dual-head high-performance 4K IP KVM matrix over a single fiber connection. Delivering pixel-perfect picture quality, audio and USB to single or dual 4K screens, the ALIF4000 is the perfect solution for the broadcast industry, in particular VFX, post-production and color grading applications, as well as air traffic control and healthcare organisations.

What are Adder’s thoughts on the hype surrounding 8K?
The 8K movement is very exciting and we are looking forward to seeing how it progresses. The number of top tier brands introducing 8K models is increasing, and AI’s ability to upscale lower resolution content is making the technology more accessible. The 2020 Tokyo Olympics is being broadcast in 8K which shows how fast technology is moving. I am sure that the consumer market will rapidly begin to adopt 8K when the technology becomes more affordable and available. Watch this space!
