Rose displaying USB 1.1, 2.0, 3.1, and KVM extenders with live demonstrations of USB 3-2-1 over CAT 6a cable and OM3 fiber
Burnaby, British Columbia – June 6, 2018 – Icron Technologies Corporation, a leader in USB and video extension technology, and Rose Electronics, a pioneer in developing KVM switch technology, will be exhibiting a full range of USB and KVM extension solutions with Icron’s patented ExtremeUSB® and ExtremeUSB-C™ technologies at InfoComm 2018 from June 6-8, 2018 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Rose’s extension showcase at show booth N1528 will include models for USB 1.1, 2.0, 3.1, as well as KVM for USB combined with video. The marquee display will feature live demonstrations of the new CrystalLink USB 3-2-1 Fiber and CrystalLink USB 3-2-1 CATx extenders for simultaneous USB 3.1, 2.0, and 1.1 extension. The fiber variant extends USB 3-2-1 devices up to 200m over OM3 fiber while the CATx model extends up to 100m using CAT 6a/7 cable. Both extenders include the ExtremeUSB-C suite of features such as transparent USB extension, true plug and play (no software drivers required), and compatibility with all major operating systems: Windows®, macOS™, Linux®, and Chrome OS™.
“All our USB and KVM extension solutions are solid performers, but we have really seen a huge demand for the recently launched CrystalLink USB 3-2-1 series,” said David Rahvar, General Partner at Rose. “There is a real need out there for reliable USB 3-2- extension over the same link cable, especially copper, to keep up with the rapid pace of USB web conferencing room installations.”
“Meeting room spaces are undergoing a major transformation to be much more functional and collaborative through the use of USB 3.1 web conferencing,” said Glenn Antonelli, Director of Business Management at Icron. “Rose Electronics has always been amongst the first to provide new solutions for ProAV integrators beginning with KVM switching, and they will continue to remain at the forefront by leading the way with USB 3-2-1 extension.”
