Icron's Powerful Maverick KVM Extension Platform to be Showcased by intoPIX at ISE 2018 Show in Amsterdam

Live demonstration of world's first USB 3-2-1 + DisplayPort 4Kp60 4:4:4 video extension over single CAT 6a cable at intoPIX's stand 10-H120 from Feb. 6-9 at the RAI Amsterdam

Icron Technologies Corporation, a leader in USB and video extension technology, and intoPIX, an innovative provider of video compression technology, announced today that intoPIX will showcase a live demonstration of Icron’s Maverick KVM platform with ExtremeUSB-C™ extension technology during the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2018 show at the RAI Amsterdam in the Netherlands, Feb. 6-9.

The innovative Maverick KVM platform is the world’s first integrated extension solution combining Icron’s proprietary ExtremeUSB-C™ USB 3.1 Gen 1 and USB 2.0/1.1 extension technology with TICO lightweight video compression from technology partner intoPIX. TICO enables 10 Gbps extension of Ultra High Definition (UHD) 4Kp60 4:4:4 video and all-type USB peripherals over a single CAT 6a cable up to 100 meters.

In addition to UHD 4Kp60 video and USB extension, the Maverick includes the ExtremeUSB-C suite of features such as transparent USB extension supporting USB 3, 2 and 1, true plug and play (no software drivers required) and compatibility with all major operating systems: Windows®, macOS™, Linux® and Chrome OS™.

“Our TICO technology pushes the boundaries of video compression to provide state-of-the-art lossless 4Kp60 video quality, without giving in on latency,” said Jean-Baptiste Lorent, director of marketing and sales at intoPIX. “Coupling TICO with ExtremeUSB-C technology turns Icron’s Maverick platform into a unique and powerful 4K + USB 3.1 extension solution specifically designed for ProAV, broadcast, medical and industrial applications.”  

“Maverick combines Icron’s USB 3-2-1 extension capabilities with UHD video using TICO lightweight compression from intoPIX resulting in a USB and video extension solution unlike any other product available in today’s market at a competitive price,” said Tom Schultz, product manager at Icron. “Maverick is truly a breakthrough platform that will soon be available for OEM customers to customize for their own solutions.” 

ISE attendees are encouraged to visit intoPIX’s show stand 10-H120 to see the live Maverick demo from Feb. 6-9 at the Amsterdam RAI.
