Raven 3104 Pro provides up to 100m of USB 3-2-1 extension over CAT6a cable for Google Meet Tabletop connections
SAN JOSE, Calif.—June 28, 2021—Icron, the provider of ExtremeUSB-CTM extension technology, today announced that the USB 3-2-1 Raven 3104 Pro is now a recommended hardware peripheral for the Google Meet hardware ecosystem. The Raven Pro is the first and only qualified solution capable of extending Meet hardware beyond 20m/66ft distance utilizing standard CAT6a cable, providing integrators increased flexibility with simpler cable routing and termination up to 100m/328ft.
The Raven Pro provides USB 3-2-1 compatibility and enhanced support for USB 3.0 isochronous transactions, allowing for presentation mode HDMI capture at maximum capabilities without any lag or loss of video fidelity.
As part of the USB Hubs and Extension Cables category of the Google Meet hardware ecosystem, the Raven Pro additionally features an integrated 4-port hub permitting installers to not only extend the distance between the Chromebox and the tabletop speaker microphone and touch control devices, but forgo the need for an external USB hub, thus reducing the number of components in the installation.
“The USB 3-2-1 Raven 3104 Pro allows Google Meet hardware installations to go well beyond the current 20m limitation of USB active cables as well as allowing installers the flexibility to source, install, and terminate their own cables up to 100m,” said Thomas Schultz, senior business manager at Icron. “With enhanced support for USB 3.0 isochronous transactions, the Raven Pro also allows for full utilization of the Presentation mode offered by Google Meet, ensuring a high-quality experience with meetings on the platform.”
The USB 3-2-1 Raven 3104 Pro can be purchased from distributors listed on Icron’s “Where to Buy” page www.icron.com/where-to-buy and is also available for private label branding. Visit Icron’s website for more details.
