Burnaby, British Columbia – June 7, 2016 –  Icron Technologies Corporation, a leader in USB and video extension technology and  intoPIX, an innovative provider of video compression solutions, announced today Icron is demonstrating its new “Maverick” USB and UHD video extension platform that incorporates intoPIX’s visually lossless TICO video compression technology.

Additionally, Maverick includes intoPIX’s award-winning TICO low latency visually lossless video compression technology and offers unparalleled performance for handling UHD 4K p60 with full 8- or 10-bit in 4:2:2 or 4:4:4 color spaces for accurate image clarity.

“The ProAV industry is certainly going to benefit from this new and highly innovative extension platform with unparalleled performance in extending both UHD video and USB over a single cable,” said Jean-Baptiste Lorent, Product & Marketing Manager at intoPIX. “TICO provides a truly lossless compression, with no impact on latency and this represents a real breakthrough delivering cost-effective high resolution high frame rate video.
