MaxColor or 3G: Feature Comparison


When building a new AV over IP system, Just Add Power offers two 4K systems:

  1. MaxColor - released in 2022
  2. 3G Ultra - released in 2015

Our company philosophy is to support products for decades, so both of these systems will be around for a long time. You need only look to our support for 2G (released in 2010 and still supported today) to see our commitment to protecting your investment.

You can find a simple, marketing comparison between the two systems on the Platform Differences page on our main website.

This article addresses the further technical comparisons between them.

Start here to plan a 3G Ultra system.


Aside from video differences, the MaxColor and 3G Ultra systems offer different support for Just Add Power features; mainly because of how new MaxColor is. We plan on adding all of these features to MaxColor, but it will take time.
