AIM (AdderLink Infinity Manager)

July 2009 - present

AIM Screenshot Adder Technology's flagship product is AdderLink Infinity, a KVM-over-IP switch/extender for DVI/Audio/USB. The receivers and transmitters allow multiple remote users to access host computers in a very flexible manner, which requires a central management and control interface. AIM is a bespoke PHP & Mootools web application running on a lightweight LAMP server. It has been deployed in hundreds of organisations worldwide, including the live running of BBC's studios, China State Power's control centre, and various parliaments.

  • Worked alongside Adder/VNC hardware engineers on two-way server-device communication & configuration protocols
  • System administrators can configure devices, define user/group permissions, create virtual channels, and define preset connections
  • End users can change channels/presets using an advanced OSD, providing filtering, favourites, and hotkey functionality
  • API allows third party applications or hardware controllers to change channels/presets
  • Synchronization of users from an Active Directory server
