 the leading designer and manufacturer of fiber optic connectivity and

     "IBC 2008 is an ideal arena to premier such a product," said Kevin
 Keefe, Director of Engineering at Thinklogical. "We're delighted to unveil
 this new product line which will enable our broadcast and post-product
 customers to push the boundaries beyond the limited distance that
 multi-mode fiber optic extension offers."
     VelocityKVM addresses the issue of bandwidth limitation, which can
 become a bottleneck for enterprise access and ultimately revenue. This
 bottleneck oftentimes appears in metropolitan area networks. Optical fiber,
 specifically single-mode fiber, alleviates this problem offering a
 substantial amount of bandwidth.
     "We are setting up what we call a Metro Matrix for our customers," said
 Peter Henderson, Vice President of Business Development at Thinklogical.
 "This gives them the ability to work with various facilities seamlessly,
 such as a post house to a broadcast studio, even though a considerable
 distance may separate the physical locations. Therefore, customers will be
 able to effectively manage their projects, leverage talent, take on a wider
 variety of projects, and work with the highest quality images where and
 when they are needed."
     The VelocityKVM system consists of a transmitter and a receiver
 connected by single-mode fiber optic cable. The transmitter unit connects
 to the computer and the receiver unit provides connections to the user
 interface devices. Advanced peripheral capability supports PS2, full duplex
 stereo audio, serial (RS-232), USB 1.0 (HID) device ports, USB 1.1 and 2.0.
     The VelocityKVM not only extends video, it effectively supports
 multiple video source(s), with unsurpassed image quality, over a single
 fiber. The end result is error-free transmission, with no frame or bit
 dropping and complete immunity to interference. The system also offers
 dual-link DVI, one single-mode fiber, and two DVI video channel options.
