Choosing the Right Switch

When planning an install, one of the most important decisions is the managed gigabit Ethernet switch that is the center of the Just Add Power HDMI over IP system.

Just Add Power supports 2 switch manufacturers with JADConfig and drivers: Luxul and Cisco. All Luxul and Cisco switches support the full range of Just Add Power features: 4K video, multi-channel audio, video wall, Image Pull, RS232 control, IR control, CEC control, on-screen display, etc.

We also have recommendations for Switch Stacking Modules for stackable switches.
