JADConfig has been replaced by a new software - Advanced Matrix Programmer (AMP) - that provides all of the same features of JADConfig, but has updated architecture that makes it easier to configure and support systems.
New systems should be built with AMP. AMP will support a wider range of switches, configure 3G and MaxColor systems, and continue to be updated over time.
No further updates to JADConfig are planned as of February 8, 2022 except to fix new issues that arise. We will continue to support JADConfig; systems built with JADConfig can remain that way, or can be transitioned to AMP.
JADConfig is a Windows-only software that will configure a managed Ethernet switch and Just Add Power devices into an HDMI switching matrix. The HDMI matrix uses network infrastructure, but is separate from the main data network; audio/video traffic will not interfere with data traffic.
JADConfig will auto-update when a new version is available.
We suggest that JADConfig only be run on native Windows hardware to ensure the smoothest configuration process.
We have experienced issues with virtual machines and parallels related to properly bridging the network adapter settings from the Mac to the Windows side. Ideally, the Windows adapter should show the exact same settings as the Mac adapter, but that alone does not guarantee success.
Results include: failure to discover units, failure to configure units, failure to firmware update units resulting in damage to the units, and working perfectly fine the whole way through.
Because of the nature of Mac hardware updates, success one time does not guarantee success at all times.
