Hello @bmgr 

 

I just added this to the Video FAQ. Please check >here< but understand that normal USB2.0 or USB3.0 cable length restrictions apply

 

Best Regards

Hi, Steffen,

 

in the FAQ you have listed both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 cables I am wondering about that.

What USB bandwidth is required for the Studio X50 to get the best performance in device mode?

Is USB 2.0 with 480Mbps really enough?


Do you have experience with USB extenders for longer distances?

 

Yours Hans-Ulrich

Hi Steffen,

 

Do you have any recommendations for USB Extension cables for the Studio X50? Is the 10m Unitek Y-3005 suitable for this unit?

 

Regards

We tested two. The one from AVACCESS works flawlessly. The one from ATEN we tested didn't work and caused the X50 to freeze randomly.
