intoPIX and Icron Demonstrate How To Turbocharge Your AV Network Bandwidth and Save Cost Using TICO

Burnaby, British Columbia – February 2, 2017 – Icron Technologies Corporation, a leader in USB and video extension technology and intoPIX, an innovative provider of video compression solutions, announced the two companies will co-host the speaking session “Turbocharging your AV network bandwidth and saving cost using TICO lightweight low latency compression” on February 7th at the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) Show 2017.

This session designed to address the needs of audio-video professionals will provide insights into the award-winning TICO visually lossless video compression technology from intoPIX and its benefits in efficiently and transparently tackling important cost and video bandwidth challenges in audio-visual network infrastructure. The session will also feature a practical use case of extending UHD 4Kp60 4:4:4 video with USB 3.1 Gen 1 (5 Gbps) and USB 2.0 over a single CAT 6a cable up to 100 meters via Icron’s ExtremeUSB-C™ extension technology.

“I’m very excited to co-host this ISE learning session with Icron,” said Jean-Baptiste Lorent, Director of Marketing and Sales at intoPIX and session co-host. “Our TICO technology has pushed the boundaries of compression to provide state-of-the-art 4Kp60 video quality at an economical cost that becomes even more powerful when coupled with Icron’s new ExtremeUSB-C 3.1 extension technology for KVM applications.” “There are many applications that require high resolution 4Kp60 video with USB peripherals up to 100 meters of distance,” said Sukhdeep Hundal, Icron’s CTO and session co-host. “Combining TICO lightweight compression and Icron’s ExtremeUSB-C extension together in one package over a single CAT 6a cable is truly a game changer for the proAV industry.”

This free ISE learning session will take place in the Unified Communications Theatre at the Amsterdam RAI on February 7th between 11:00-11:30 a.m. Additionally, both intoPIX (10-Q118) and Icron (G-M164) will have live demonstrations at their respective show booths for attendees to observe the combined solution up close.
