Rose Electronics Shows CrystalLink USB 3.1 Extenders with Icron’s ExtremeUSB-C Technology at NAB

Icron Technologies Corp., a leader in USB and video extension technology, and Rose Electronics, a pioneer in developing KVM switch technology, displayed a full range of USB and KVM extension solutions with Icron’s patented ExtremeUSB and ExtremeUSB-C technologies at NAB.

Rose Electronics’ feature display was their new CrystalLink USB 3.1 Fiber and CrystalLink USB 3.1 CATx extenders for simultaneous USB 3.1, 2.0 and 1.1 extension. The fiber model extends USB 3-2-1 devices up to 656 feet over OM3 fiber while the CATx model extends up to 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.

“Our CrystalLink USB 3.1 extenders allow media professionals to take advantage of the simplicity and performance that USB 3.1 offers at extended distances over fiber or copper cabling,” said David Rahvar, general partner at Rose.

“USB 3.1’s throughput rate of five Gbps is well-equipped for handling sizable content file transfers,” said Glenn Antonelli, director of business management at Icron. “By taking advantage of ExtremeUSB-C technology, Rose’s CrystalLink USB 3.1 extenders will support USB 3.1 plus USB 2.0/1.1 backward compatibility providing media professionals with access to all the tools they need over extended distances.”
