Vaddio Launches OneLINK Technology to Send Power, Video and Control
over One Cat. 5e Cable

Vaddio?s New OneLINK Technology Reduces Number of Cables Required for

MINNEAPOLIS, MN (June 7, 2010) ? Vaddio?s OneLINK revolutionary
digital bus technology reduces the number of cables required in any
videoconferencing or presentation installation. With OneLINK, power,
video and control are passed over a single bi-directional Cat. 5e cable.

?Our customers have asked for a Quick-Connect solution that solves the
distance limitations of HDMI PTZ cameras,? explained President and CEO
of Vaddio, Rob Sheeley. ?OneLINK technology is the latest development
in our continued effort to make integration and installation easier by
placing power, video and control all on a single Cat. 5e cable.
Whether the camera is installed above a monitor or positioned
elsewhere in a videoconference room, the OneLINK solution is the ideal
choice for extending the distances of cable runs between TANDBERG
Precision HD cameras and codecs.?

OneLINK is part of the Vaddio Cat. 5e Structured Media Cabling
Standard for video, power and control over Cat. 5e, with one important
difference: the OneLINK system passes power to the camera over Cat. 5e
and provides a bi-directional control channel for RS-232 communication
transmitting/receiving uncompressed digital video up to, and
including, 1080p/60Hz all on a single Cat. 5e cable. The system is
made for 12V DC PTZ cameras with digital outputs (HDMI 1.4 or DVI with
an HDMI adapter) that use RS-232 for control, such as the TANDBERG
Precision HD and Precision HD 1080p PTZ cameras.

The three major components of the OneLINK platform are the EZIM (EZ
Interface Module for HDMI video, power and control) OneLINK, the Quick-
Connect OneLINK and the Cat. 5e cable. The EZIM OneLINK sits at the
PTZ camera end of the installation and includes the HDMI transmitter,
Power Regulator and the bi-directional control channel for RS-232. The
Quick-Connect OneLINK sits at the head-end and includes the HDMI
receiver, power supply for the camera and a bi-directional control
channel for RS-232. The OneLINK system uses only one Cat. 5e cable and
can run up to 125 feet (38.1m) in length. The system also includes a
wall mount for the TANDBERG Precision HD cameras.

The OneLINK technology not only speeds up the installation, but also
simplifies the wiring scheme. For a demonstration of the product
please stop by Booth # C4749 at InfoComm 2010, June 9 – 11 at the Las
Vegas Convention Center.
