Extron announces the availability of the UCS 900 Series of fibre optic SuperSpeed USB extenders that extend USB data signals from peripheral devices to a host computer over fibre 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 Gbps. The UCS FTR 900 Kit includes a transmitter, receiver, 10m (32.8 foot) plenum-rated multimode fibre 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 pro AV environments.
“With the rise in Unified Communications, more and more spaces are requiring USB camera extension. Extron has responded to this need with our new SuperSpeed USB extenders,” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing at Extron. “We’ve also made these powerful extenders simple to set up, with our new all-in-one kit that includes everything you’ll need for a quick and easy installation.”
In addition to mass storage devices, keyboards, and mice, the UCS 900 Series extends many other USB peripherals, including annotation devices, interactive displays, cameras, headsets, and speakers. The UCS 900 Series is ideal for a wide variety of environments requiring extension of USB 3.2 and earlier versions with data rates up to 5 Gbps, including huddle and presentation rooms, courtrooms, conference and meeting spaces, classrooms, and lecture halls.
