infoComm - Just Add Power Simplifies Presentation Control With New Collaboration Tool

J+P's 'Plug-Play-Present' Adds Logic Control to All J+P Transmitters, Enables Seamless and Intuitive Source Switching; Debuts at InfoComm 2017

LARGO, Fla. — June 12, 2017 — Just Add Power (J+P), the leader in Ultra HD over IP, is making it easy for integrators to add logic control to their J+P systems, allowing users to intuitively switch between sources to make presentations and collaboration a breeze. Ideal for huddle rooms, boardrooms, or large matrixes, the Plug-Play-Present logic controller makes its debut in booth 4081 at InfoComm 2017, June 14-16, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.

"Not every commercial installation requires or can afford an external control system, but with the growing range of sources, these projects still demand a simple way to connect to and switch between sources," said Taft Stricklin, sales team manager at Just Add Power. "The Plug-Play-Present controller is just another smart building block we've added to the J+P offering that enables integrators to easily solve critical video switching needs."
The Plug-Play-Present logic control is added via free firmware to all J+P transmitters, enabling intuitive and reliable connection and switching of sources. Users simply connect any source to any HDMI or VGA transmitter, and the transmitter does all the work. The device allows integrators to create a scene based on video being present. It can power devices on and off and communicate with network devices. The transmitter can send CEC, IR, IP, or RS-232 commands to a single screen, multiple screens, or the network switch with simple conditional statements to make control possible without the additional expense of an outboard control system.
The J+P Plug-Play-Present is shipping worldwide. For more information on the full line of J+P products, visit

About Just Add Power (J+P)
Just Add Power was founded in 1992 by a group of former employees from the IBM Corporation. The motivation behind the company and the name was to come to the market with applications that totally support customers, their investment, and are easy to use. With the 2009 introduction of the HDIP™ solution for distributing HDMI® over IP networks, the company has become well known across many new markets.
The J+P design and manufacturing philosophy is evolutionary, not revolutionary. For example, customers who invested in our solution in 2009 can still purchase new Transmitters and Receivers in 2014 to expand and maintain their system. J+P takes pride in having created an infrastructure that can be sustained and manufactured reliably for many years, making improvements through free firmware updates. When the company adds features that can't be done through firmware alone, they build new hardware with an eye towards backwards compatibility. The J+P evolutionary product design philosophy ensures the protection of the customer's investment, and will increase system value over time.
