Extron just launched a timely product — since everything uses USB now — in the form of the UCS 900 Series of fiber optic SuperSpeed USB extenders that extend USB data signals from peripheral devices to a host computer over fiber optic cable. These extenders are compatible with all USB standards up to USB 3.2 including previous standards, and support data rates up to 5 gigabits per second. The UCS FTR 900 Kit includes a transmitter, receiver, 10-meter (32.8-foot) multimode fiber optic cable, power supplies, and ZipClip mounting brackets for easy, secure mounting of the transmitter and receiver in furniture, behind a display, or under a desk. The transmitter features a USB‑C host connection and can be powered by the host computer. The receiver features a two‑port USB hub for connecting remote peripherals. The UCS 900 Series easily extends USB cameras, conference systems and peripherals such as mass storage devices, keyboards, and mice in ProAV environments.
The UCS 900 Series supports USB peripherals such as annotation devices, interactive displays, keyboards, mice, mass storage devices, cameras, headsets and speakers, along with other USB devices. It is ideal for a wide variety of environments including huddle and presentation rooms, conference and meeting spaces, courtrooms, classrooms and lecture halls.
