Extending the USB Working Distance

Many users of The Imaging Source cameras have recently phoned, emailed, and even faxed what seems to be a most relevant question concerning the new USB models. Tom Ferraro of Melbourne, FL writes:

[...] the humidity here in Florida is just deadly no matter what time of year it is! Can I extend the USB connection from my laptop to my DMK 21AU04.AS so that I can stay cool while sipping a tasty beverage?

Good news Tom. I've purchased a few long USB cables and extension cables from a local electronics shop and tested The Imaging Source DMK 21AU04.AS (and its siblings) up to 10 meters! One note: buy good quality cables!

Have a Great Day,
