Demonstration featuring Streaming 4K video with USB 2.0 extension and switching using a standard 10G Ethernet switch at ZeeVee booth 10-N151 from February 9th to 12th at Amsterdam RAI, Netherlands
Burnaby, British Columbia – January 26, 2016 – Icron Technologies Corporation, a leader in USB and video extension technology, announced today that ZeeVee, Inc., a global manufacturer of video and signal distribution technology, will be launching its ZyPer4K™ CATx video distribution solution with patented ExtremeUSB® technology from Icron at the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) Show 2016 from February 9th through 12th at Amsterdam RAI in the Netherlands.
The new ZyPer4K CATx expands upon the ZyPer4K platform becoming the only available solution to switch and distribute uncompressed 4K video, audio, RS232/IR control signals and USB 2.0 using off-the-shelf 10G Ethernet switches in a CATx infrastructure. Additionally, the existing ZyPer4K for fiber system will now be equipped with ExtremeUSB technology for USB 2.0 operation over any 10G fiber network switch spanning up to 10km and beyond.
Both ZyPer4K distribution solutions support Icron’s patented SwitchableUSB™ technology enabling USB signals to dynamically switch in conjunction with video, and include the ExtremeUSB suite of features, such as transparent USB extension, true plug and play (no software drivers required) and compatibility with all major operating systems: Windows®, OS X® and Linux®.
“Our two ZyPer4K distribution solutions incorporate 4K video technology from AptoVision and ExtremeUSB technology from Icron,” said Chris Scurto, Vice President of Marketing and North American Sales at ZeeVee. “When adding our versatile management platform to the mix, we are making good on our promise to deliver any source over any network to unlimited displays.”
“We are very pleased our ExtremeUSB and Switchable extension technologies were incorporated into ZyPer4K designs both for copper and fiber networks,” said Glenn Antonelli, Vice President of Marketing at Icron. “ZeeVee customers will benefit having uncompressed 4K video with full USB 2.0 480 Mbps support capable of switching dynamically over any off-the-shelf 10G Ethernet switch.”
A live demonstration of both ZyPer4K solutions will be on display using a 65-inch interactive kapp iQ display panel from SMART at ZeeVee booth 10-N151 from February 9th to 12th during the ISE show in Amsterdam.
