Burnaby, British Columbia – February 6, 2017 – Icron Technologies Corporation, a leader in USB and video extension technology, announced today that syscomtec Distribution AG, specialists in visualization technologies, signal management and control in the field of professional audio-visual media, will be featuring a live demonstration of Icron’s new USB 3.1 Gen 1 Raven™ 3104 extender system at the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) Show 2017 from February 7th through 10th at Amsterdam RAI in the Netherlands.

The Raven 3104 is a four-port USB extender system capable of supporting USB 3.1 data rates up to 5 Gbps while simultaneously extending USB 2.0 and 1.1 devices at their respective throughputs. This 3-2-1 compatibility coupled with plug and play simplicity, makes the Raven a perfect extension solution for any conference room application that includes a combination of USB peripherals such as USB 3.1 cameras, USB 2.0 flash drives and USB 1.1 keyboards and mice.

“ProAV installers have been asking for a USB 3.1 extension solution that is backward compatible to USB 2.0/1.1,” said Claus Lohse, Member of Board at syscomtec. “We are extremely pleased to be the first European distributor to showcase the Raven extender with a PTZ camera in conjunction with a keyboard and mouse over a single CAT 6a cable.”

“With its blazing fast 5 Gbps bandwidth to support high resolutions, USB 3.1 cameras are now the technology of choice for conference room applications,” said Glenn Antonelli, Vice President of Marketing at Icron. “The Raven 3104 allows for flawless extension of up to 30 USB 3-2-1 devices simultaneously at full performance over a single CAT 6a cable up to 100 meters.”

In addition to being backward compatible with USB 2.0/1.1, the Raven 3104 includes Ethernet pass-through capability for connecting to network enabled devices or to use existing infrastructure without losing LAN connectivity. Moreover, the Raven includes 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™ and Linux®.

A live demonstration of the Raven 3104 extender system is available at syscomtec’s booth, 8-N275, from February 7th to 10th during the ISE show in Amsterdam.
