BURNABY, BC, June 19 /CNW/ - Icron Technologies Corporation (TSX
Venture: IT), the developers of ExtremeUSB(R) announced that Gefen Inc, of
Woodland Hills, California, has launched a wireless USB 2.0 extender based on
Icron's ExtremeUSB technology at this years InfoComm 07 show in Anaheim, CA
from June 19th to the 21st.
The Gefen wireless USB extender supports the connection of hi-speed
USB 2.0 and 1.1 devices up to 100 feet from the computer. It works with both
Apple (OSX) and PC (Windows, Linux) systems using Icron Technologies'
ExtremeUSB based on 802.11g technology. The receiver is a four-port USB hub
that can support multiple devices by adding additional hubs. Data can be
delivered at high speeds, thanks to optimized circuitry.
"We believe this reliable and wireless method of USB extension will
significantly enhance the way systems operate well into the future," said
Hagai Gefen, president and CEO. "Subsequent versions will also support
multiple receiver hubs connected to one sender unit, allowing a same time
distribution that delivers data real-time with no cables."
Like most of Gefen's extender solutions, the wireless USB 2.0 extender
uses small sender and receiver units connected to the computer and to the
extended USB devices. No cables are needed to link sender to the receiver,
which allows connection to cameras, keyboards, printers, hard drives or any
USB 2.0 devices at distances up to 100 feet away.
"We are pleased that our partnership with Gefen continues to grow with
the addition of the wireless USB 2.0 product to their portfolio," stated

devices working on all operating systems. Demos will be provided throughout
