C2G, a brand of Legrand | AV, announced a major expansion to its family of Superbooster USB Extenders. C2G is adding seven new models that support USB devices, such as high-bandwidth PTZ cameras, solid-state drives, interactive whiteboard printers and touchscreen displays.

C2G says the Superbooster USB Camera Extenders have undergone testing with industry-leading video conferencing cameras — including Logitech, Polycom, Owl Labs, Aver, Jabra, Yealink, Avaya, Bose, Vaddio and others — to ensure reliability and deployment confidence. The plug-and-play C2G Superbooster USB Camera Extenders are designed with chipset technology that offers a higher compatibility rate than other USB extenders on the market, according to the company. The externders provide reliable USB data extension from a computer to a USB camera up to 150 feet (45.7m) over a standard Cat6 network cable — making them an ideal solution for conference rooms, command centers, classrooms, auditoriums and medical facilities.

Superbooster USB Camera Extenders are available in three form factors: Single Gang Wall Plate to Single Gang Wall Plate kit (C2G54275), Single Gang Wall Plate to Box kit (C2G54276) and Box to Box kit (C2G54277).

C2G says future additions to the Superbooster line include USB 3.2 Gen1 camera extenders, which provide increased bandwidth and faster data transfer speeds to support USB 3.2 devices, such as 4K USB cameras and solid-state hard drives. The products extend devices up to 328 feet (100m) via a single Cat6a cable with data transfer rates of 5Gbps.
