Thinklogical Announces Breakthrough Patent-Pending Technology for Transmission and Reception of DVI, Keyboard, Mouse, and High-Speed Data Peripherals

    MRTS technology provides end-to-end data transmission with unparalleled

    MILFORD, Conn., Jan. 21 /CNW/ -- Thinklogical, a leading provider of
fiber optic KVM switching and extension solutions, recently filed for patent
protection for its revolutionary Multi Rate Transmission System (MRTS)
technology, which will further advance its high performance video and KVM
product lines. This unique optic platform enables multiple data streams to be
transmitted long distance, over single or multiple fibers, with complete
reconstruction of the data clock at the destination end point. The result is
perfect synchronization with each transmitted stream. Thinklogical also
announced today that this technology has been deployed in its newest product
lines, the VelocityKVM and the Camera Fiber-Link series.

    Previous optic technologies were unable to successfully maintain digital
video and peripheral signals over distance. The new MRTS technology has the
ability to transport every frame of a 1920 x 1200 @ 60Hz (or higher) video
stream with no compression, along with all desktop peripherals (keyboard,
mouse, including 480Mbps USB 2.0 or FireWire 800) with no perceptible latency.
Moreover, these signals can be transmitted distances from just a few meters up
to 40 kilometers over single-mode or multi-mode fibers.

    "This technology has many applications especially in the broadcast and
post-production arena, where real-time collaboration applications are in place
and eliminating dropped frames and latency is of paramount importance. In
addition, large command and control centers, universities, large scale digital
signage and other commercial fiber optic KVM applications will benefit greatly
by this new technology since it allows for traditional AV implementations and
video routing to be incorporated into the same switch fabric," stated Peter
Henderson, VP of New Business Development. "Ultimately, MRTS technology
provides greater value, flexibility, performance and security. It is truly
unlike any other technology known, especially those that are network based,
such as IP, or any known KVM or video extension solution, over copper or

    From inception, the MRTS technology was designed to be deployed in
Thinklogical's newest product line the VelocityKVM. This KVM extension system,
comprised of a transmitter and receiver, was developed with SFP+ modules along
with single fiber capability, with no galvanic connection between source and
destination. This assures isolation, security and optimal video and peripheral
performance with the elimination of skew related artifacts which are typically
found with multi-thread systems. Additional unique capabilities include the
ability to support 6.25 Gbps bandwidth per stream, approximately 50 to 100%
higher than the nearest competitor (typically 1.485 Gbps to 3.2 Gbps).  This
is significant primarily because a single DVI stream requires a 5.4 Gbps data
rate to accommodate the 165 MHz of video data. The difference is generally
manifested in either dropped frames or lower resolution associated with
compressing schemes.

    "MRTS is a highly reliable technology and delivers powerful benefits to
our customers when combined with our new SFP+ optics. To date Thinklogical has
two major broadcast networks currently using products powered with MRTS
technology and it has been met with great success," comments Kevin Keefe,
Director of Engineering.  "Now that the technological underpinnings are in
place we are taking giant steps towards addressing core challenges associated
with high performance DVI and HD video, and KVM applications. We are pleased
to be the only provider to offer this unprecedented technological solution."
