Draco vario KVM range broadened with new USB 3.0 extender
IHSE has extended its range of modular Draco vario KVM extenders with the introduction of the Draco vario USB 3.0 extender. The new device combines Icron’s ExtremeUSB technology with the Draco vario extender.
The new extender enables lossless extension of USB 3.0 SuperSpeed devices, including high speed memory cards and cameras, over distances up to hundreds of meters over a single multi-mode fiber optic cable.
The Draco vario USB 3.0 Extender carries an integrated 2-Port USB 3.0 hub capable of data rates up to 5,25 Gbit/s and includes all features of the Icron ExtremeUSB series, including easy configuration via plug-and-play. It is compatible with the Draco tera UNI KVM matrix switch system, delivering delay-free, lossless switching and extension of USB 3.0 signals.
"USB 3.0 is rapidly becoming the standard in the film and television industry," said Enno Littmann, managing director of IHSE. "With this device, we can offer users the advantages of the world's leading USB 3.0 extension technology from Icron and our modular Draco vario-system in an integrated solution."
"Media professionals need to transfer and switch large file sizes over extended distances," said Glenn Antonelli, Vice President of Marketing at Icron. "USB 3.0, with its higher bandwidths, is the ideal interface to handle such traffic; and IHSE’s new Draco vario USB 3.0 extender delivers this performance in a modular form factor.”
