Burnaby, British Columbia – April 8, 2014 – Icron Technologies Corporation, a leader in USB and video extension technology, announced today that Guntermann & Drunck GmbH, a leading manufacturer of digital and analogue KVM solutions, will be showcasing its KVM switch and extender lines with ExtremeUSB® technology at the NAB Show® 2014 in booth N5212 until April 10th in Las Vegas, NV.
Guntermann & Drunck, commonly known as G&D, has an extensive portfolio of USB extenders, KVM extenders and switches catering to a wide range of industries including broadcasting. Many solutions from G&D’s product line have incorporated the ExtremeUSB suite of features such as transparent USB extension, true plug and play (no software drivers required) and compatibility with Windows®, Linux® and Mac OS X® operating systems. This patented technology provides broadcast application users assurance of unrivaled performance when placing host computers and peripheral devices at distances well beyond stated USB specifications.
“We are a strong endorser of ExtremeUSB technology from Icron,” said Roland Ollek, CEO of G&D’s Sales and Marketing. “Our broadcast customers can be working with Windows, Linux, or Mac based computers and often need to be in different rooms when working on content. By incorporating ExtremeUSB into our USB extenders, KVM extenders and matrix switches, our customers avoid all set-up and installation headaches; they can just plug and play and get to work.”
“G&D has served ProAV and broadcasting customers for almost three decades,” said Glenn Antonelli, Vice President of Marketing at Icron. “The adoption of ExtremeUSB into their KVM extender and matrix switch solutions carries on the tradition of providing their customers with the highest caliber of USB extension performance available.”
