USB 3.0 Active Repeater Cable
Tethering your devices up to 15 meters
The maximum practical length for the USB 3.0 cable is 3 meters but often certain applications require flexibility when it comes to cable lenght. To lift this lenght barrier, the USB 3.0 Active Repeater cable allows you to extend the USB 3.0 cable far beyond its maximum length. All 3 items will be available by Mid of February 2015.
Tethered shooting is connecting a computer to the camera via the USB port so the pictures you take are downloaded to the computer instead of the memory card.
Previewing photos in the field can be quite challenging. The small screen on the back of the camera doesn’t exactly give you a good representation of how well photos are turning out. You can easily tether your camera via USB to see your photos on a tablet, iPad, notebook or even on your workstation PC / Mac.
Multiple storage devices such as an external hard disk can take a lot of space. With the USB 3.0 Active Repeater Cable you are able to clear your desk space or even secure them in safety cabinet.
Noise Most high spec storage devices such NAS or external hard disks include active fans for cooling. The main reason is to ensure data integrity during file transferring between the external hard disk and the host controller. Placing these devices away from your desk or your working environment will improve your computing experience.
