BURNABY, BC–(Marketwired – April 25, 2017) – 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 featuring its newest ZyPer4K™ video distribution solution incorporating Icron’s patented ExtremeUSB® and SwitchableUSB™ technologies at the 2017 NAB Show in Las Vegas, April 24-27.
The Zyper4K simplifies video distribution by offering virtual plug and play configuration using the ZeeVee Management platform and nearly any off-the-shelf 10G Ethernet switch. The third generation ZyPer4K offers full HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 capability including support for uncompressed, zero latency 4K video. Optional inputs for DisplayPort, HD-SDI and Analogue are supported as well as the ability to create flexible multi-view and video wall configurations.
By adopting Icron’s SwitchableUSB protocols, ZeeVee customers are able to dynamically switch video and USB 2.0 signals at the same time while enjoying the benefits of 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®, macOS™ and Linux®.
“ZyPer4K is ideal for broadcasters looking to distribute uncompressed 4K images with zero latency in an economical way over a 10G network,” said Chris Scurto, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at ZeeVee. “Incorporating ExtremeUSB and SwitchableUSB technologies from Icron provides our customers with the ultimate user experience as both UHD video and full bandwidth USB 2.0 signals can be extended and switched at the same time as desired.”
“Offering media integrators a quality solution for distributing 4K video plus USB 2.0 signals without any latency over off-the-shelf standards based 10G network switches is both economical and resourceful,” said Glenn Antonelli, Vice President of Marketing at Icron. “Dynamic USB 2.0 switching in conjunction with video provides ZeeVee customers a full range of USB 2.0 devices to use in addition to traditional HID keyboard and mouse, providing optimal flexibility for increasing productivity.”
A live demonstration of the ZyPer4K solution will be on display at ZeeVee’s NAB show booth SU14207 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
