New Extender from Gefen Boasts Full Wireless USB Connectivity
San Francisco, CA – Gefen’s new Wireless USB Extender gives you the
freedom to move your Mac peripherals around while retaining
high-speed USB capability. This means your keyboard/mouse, scanner,
printer, hard drive, digital camera and iPod can all remain connected
to the computer from up to 60 feet in distance (line of sight) with
no connection cables required. Distances up to 30 feet are guaranteed
through one wall.
Computer access is immediate with data transfer rates up to 400 Mbps.
Pictures can be downloaded, documents printed, and computer data
accessed instantly from any USB device. Both high and low speed USB
(1.0 and 2.0) peripherals are supported on cross-platform computers
for unbeatable compatibility.
The Gefen Wireless USB Extender operates through a small sender
dongle that connects to the computer’s USB port, and a four-port USB
Hub positioned at the remote location. The Hub is plug and play in
application, meaning you simply connect up to four USB devices to the
hub’s four inputs for instant access.
Based on ultra-wideband wireless technology from Wisair that operates
in the 3.5 GHz range, Gefen’s Wireless USB Extender is expected to
begin shipping in January with a MSRP of $249.
Gefen is also making available a Wireless Component Audio Extender
and a Wireless for HDMI Extender, expected in the first quarter of
2007. Check www.gefen.com for updated product information.
