So again, we are making more USB 2.0 video conferencing products wireless! The Logitech BCC950 is a digital PTZ (Pan Tilt Zoom) camera with USB 2.0 made for video conferencing from Logitech. We had a special request for a demonstration on how to make the Logitech BCC950 wireless with the USB2Air. The USB2Air is a wireless USB 2.0 extension system with near-zero latency perfect for video conferencing and live streaming applications. In this video, we connect the Logitech BCC950 to the USB2Air Wireless extension system to provide wireless video and audio to our Windows laptop.

As you can see from the wiring diagram below the Logitech BCC950 is plugged into the USB2Air via USB 2.0. We are also showing an additional USB 2.0 device the ClearOne Chat 150 which is not necessary but shown to demonstrate multiple devices can be used on USB 2.0 hub. The Logitech BCC950 can act as both a USB 2.0 video and audio device. So in this demonstration, we are wirelessly extending the Logitech BCC950 as a webcam and as a microphone. You can also notice the USB bandwidth which is measured up to 30 Mbps (Megabits per second) which is the maximum amount of bandwidth the USB2Air can handle.

The picture above shows the real world application for wireless USB 2.0 extension. Many times either the computer is at the table or the wall. The webcam and speakerphone is usually needed to be extended with USB 2.0 extension cabling in order to setup and proper layout. So whether you laptop is at the table or behind the LCD the USB2Air give you the freedom to place your USB devices where you need them without expensive USB 2.0 cabling.

This video demonstrates the brand new HuddleCamHD USB 2 Air in action. Here Paul shows us how to make a Logitech Webcam wireless. The USB2Air provides a wireless USB 2.0 extension link between the host and device transceivers up to 30 Mbps. This is more than enough bandwidth to use with multiple 1080p webcams, audio conferencing devices and even interactive touch screens.

So in this video, we wirelessly extend the USB 2.0 for a Logitech c920 to demonstrate a popular use case for Wireless USB extension. As we mention many times in a conferencing space environment the computer is either behind the LCD or a laptop on the table. Either way the USB2Air can be used as a wireless USB extender. If your laptop is on the conference room table you can use the USB2Air to connect devices wirelessly such as a Webcam to your laptop. If you computer is behind the LCD display you can use the USB2Air to add additional products such as a document camera or touch screen controller.

The reason why the USB2Air is so special is because the latency is super low (1 millisecond). So this wireless USB extension can be used for real time applciations such as video conferencing and collaboration. As you can see in the video the latency is just as good as if the USB webcam was plugged directly into the computer. The only drawback is that this is a Windows-only product! That means this will work with Windows 7, 8, 8.1 or 10 but not any Mac computers!
