I got the LB 8MK 4K-W camera. It’s a 1610 machine (1.6M x 1.0M) and there’s not sufficient cable length to route inside the machine and out a port somewhere.
I’ve tried these USB-over-CAT5:
The 4K-W appears as an option, but that’s it. Clicking on the option gets no preview or any response.
And this premium USB hub-over-CAT5 :
It got a preview image, but it was stuttering, glitched, and pretty much junk.
Any easy options? I saw mention of some sort of ethernet camera, but we do want to use the optimized, supported, well-profiled 4K-W camera. Not just a regular ethernet security camera.
So, the extenders appear useless, cameras use much more bandwidth and/or lower latency I guess.
Can something like this work? It says it’s designed for cameras. Will LB still ID it correctly once it’s not on a USB port anymore?
You could try using a standard female to male usb extension cord or use an active extension cable if you go over (from my memory 5 metres).
If it isn’t externally powered it likely won’t work. This one does:
As do these:
The second one I tried had an external power adapter- but it still didn’t work.
Alright Oz, I’m giving the cheap RSHTECH a shot. Ordered off Amazon link. Will it work plugged into a USB 2.0 on the PC?
It should work just fine - USB 3.0 is backward compatible with 2.0.
