Both new KVM extenders offer uncompressed high definition 1900 x 1200 video along with USB 2.0 extension over a single Cat 5e cable, up to distances of 100 meters. Additionally, the EX HDMI model supports 1080p/4K resolution along with CEC/HDCP pass-through compatibility.

“We have a long standing development relationship with Icron to include their extension technology in our KVM products,” said David Rahvar, General Partner at Rose Electronics. “Increasingly, our customers are asking for more than simple keyboard and mouse functionality with their video extension applications, and our CrystalView KVM series with ExtremeUSB delivers not only exceptional video performance but support for all USB 2.0 compliant peripherals.”

“Rose Electronics is viewed as one of the AV industry’s leading innovators,” stated Glenn Antonelli, Icron’s Vice President of Marketing. “Their new CrystalView EX5 and EX HDMI extenders featuring Icron’s ExtremeUSB technology keeps Rose at the forefront of product performance with uncompromised video and USB 2.0 extension for applications such as medical imaging or interactive digital signage.”
