Choosing a System


Overview

Just Add Power built its reputation for outstanding performance on its design using VLANs, a closed network to distribute audio and video with zero detectable latency. For most installs, a VLAN System is still the best option for a Just Add Power AV system.

For some larger installs where equipment is already in place or must be consistent across the company's network, a Multicast system is necessary to meet these requirements.

Use the guide below to help you choose the type of system that's right for your next project.
