Icron Technologies Demonstrates Industry’s First Combination USB 3.0, 2.0 and 1.1 Extender System at InfoComm 2012

Las Vegas, NV and Burnaby, BC – June 13, 2012 – Icron Technologies Corporation, a leader in USB and KVM extension technology, is showcasing three new products at InfoComm 2012 highlighted by the world’s first USB 3.0 extender system with USB 1.1 and 2.0 backward compatibility.

Incorporating Icron’s patented ExtremeUSB® technology,  the USB 3.0 Ranger® 3144 supports USB throughput up to 5Gbps and extends USB 3.0, 2.0 and 1.1 simultaneously, up to 100 meters over fiber optics.  The 3144 works with all major computer operating systems and does not require software drivers.

Additionally, Icron will display its new USB 2.0 Ranger® 2304 featuring SwitchableUSB™ over Network. Designed for remote desktop and monitoring applications, SwitchableUSB™ enables local and remote extenders to find each other across a Local Area Network; it also provides flexibility to dynamically re-pair local and remote extenders on-the-fly.

Completing Icron’s demonstration trio is the EL5200 HDMI® + USB 2.0 Extender. This new KVM extender supports HDMI video inputs and outputs and extends USB 2.0 alongside uncompressed FHD 1920 x 1200 resolution video, over a single Cat 5e cable, up to 100m (330 ft).

“These product introductions reflect Icron’s leadership position in USB and KVM extension solutions for corporate AV, medical imaging, broadcast editing and digital signage applications,” said Robert Haefling, Icron’s President and CEO.”Featuring our patented technology, identified by the ExtremeUSB® and ExtremeLink™ brands, the robust performance of these products exceeds the requirements of today’s industrial environments.”

All three products will be made available this year under both the Icron Technologies brand and as OEM/private label.
