Vaddio Launches OneLINK Technology

Vaddio's OneLINK 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.

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 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.
