Make a USB Webcam Wireless - USB2Air

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!
