Dear friend, we have to evolve our tests. We need to test cables and devices to increase the distance of the USB cable. We can not work with a 30cm USB cable connected to a Macbook Pro SSD !!! I’m talking about the option of using the USB output for video (not the HDMI output).
For example, if you position the Ricoh R Dev in front of a stage to broadcast a show, the ideal would be for the computer to stay backstage. Shall we invest in this research?
I tested a USB2.0 Extender cable 5 meters active and it did not work. The image is locked.
Soon I will be investing in some alternatives. Follow them:
IOGEAR USB 2.0 BoostLinq Ethernet Extender> $ 52.43
IOGEAR USB 2.0 4-Port BoostLinq Ethernet Kit> $ 58.99
USB 2.0 BoostLinq Ethernet - 164ft (TAA Compliant)
USB 2.0 4-Port BoostLinq Ethernet - 164ft, 4-Port USB Extender over Cat5 / Cat5e / Cat6 Ethernet Cable
Here’s what IOGEAR support said:
Any equipment will work. Be sure to use a high quality solid core CAT6 / CAT6a cable for best performance.
I believe that Ricoh’s support can help as well.
