    Default USB Extenders

    I want to use my usb webcam at some distance from my laptop. I've sourced a USB extender (http://www.nti1.co.uk/usbc5.html) that looks OK. Has anyone used something like this and had success? It is only a USB 1.1 which might not be fast enough fort this application.

    Or are there ay other ways in which I can do this. :lol:

    Cheers,
    N.

    [I just spotted this was posted in the Z-wave forum, maybe it's better off in General Discussion? :-)]

    What USB speed can your webcam support? And do you need high frame rates? IIRC quite a few webcams are/were USB 1.0/1.1 anyway...

    One alternative would be a network video camera (IP camera). The Axis ones are pretty good, have a look at: http://www.axis.com/products/video/camera/index.htm
    and look at the 206, 207 & 207W models for something equivalent to a webcam.

    HTH,

    Tim.
