As you can see from the video and audio, resolution/bandwidth chart we have above it is important to manage the amount of bandwidth your USB devices will consume. Especially when we are using a wireless signal. The USB2Air will support up to 30 Megabits per second which as you can see will allow multiple 1080p devices to operate on the same wireless channel. We create this bandwidth chart to help wireless USB extension users determine the amount of devices they can use with a USB hub.
As you can see the higher your video resolution the more bandwidth you will consume. For example, a 1080p high-quality video stream will consume 12 MBPs (Megabits per second) which is what you would expect from a regular HD webcam. Because the USB2Air has more bandwidth to spare in a situation like this you can also add additional USB 2.0 devices on a USB Hubs to extend the functionality of the wireless USB 2.0 extender. So, continuing with our example we still have 30 MBPs of Bandwdith – 12 MBPs of Bandwidth = 18 additional MBPs of bandwidth for additional USB devices. Therefore you can usually expect to able to wireless transmit two (2) 1080p video signals using a single USB2Air wireless extension system.
MAX Wireless USB 2 Distance
In my opinion, 30MBPs is a good deal of bandwidth and the more important specification is distance from each wireless transmitter and receiver. As you will see in our specifications the USB2Air wireless extension system is recommended for use at 5 meter or 15 feet. Our engineer Matthew Davis mentions that the transmitter and receiver can work at distances up to 20-25 feet (7-9 meters) but this will require perfect line-of-sight and is still not recommended for normal use.
Once you have determined the USB 2.0 devices that you will be using for wireless USB extension you should consider the distance between the USB2Air transmitters and receivers. Because this kit includes a USB 2 Hub which powers the transmitter you may also want to consider using a short USB 2.0 cable to maintain line of sight between the wireless recevier and transmitter.
Introducing our new wireless USB 2.0 video extension system
The wireless USB 2.0 video extension system has been made to transfer data without using any wires or cables. HD (high-definition) video can be sent and receive among the two devices (your computer and USB device). The distance between the two devices transmitter and the receiver should not be more than 30 feet or video quality will start to degrade. HuddleCamHD has developed the USB 2.0 video extension system to provide easy access to wireless video for USB device users with a variety of applications.
Wireless USB 2.0 Use Cases
Since our launch we have had a bunch of our Kickstarter backers ask us to create demonstration videos. The use cases requested have been predominantly from ProAV use cases for video conferencing or live streaming. Perhaps that is because of our background in the web conferencing arena but nevertheless it has led us to create the following use case videos. As we create more wireless USB 2.0 videos we will post them on YouTube and this blog post. So stay tuned and subscribe to our YouTube channel for all the latest information!

Pro USB 2.0 Wireless Adapter
The USB2Air will retail for only $299 making the device an affordable add-on creating wireless combinations for webcams, virtual reality headsets and high-quality audio devices. This wireless USB2Air system has been developed around the USB 2.0 industry standard connection built into everyday electronic devices. Designed for professional use, interest in the consumer electronics market has prompted early HuddleCamHD development team to test USB devices in the consumer and “prosumer” markets.

1080p Wireless USB 2.0 Video Transmission
Developing around a quality chipset known for reliable 1080p video transmission, each USB device is built for superb video transmission within the specified distance limitations. HuddleCamHD has been using wireless USB extension systems to improve the current web-conferencing experience for year now. HuddleCamHD is best known for bringing to market the world’s first ever Wireless USB conference camera in 2015 and the smashing success of the HuddlePod Air in 2016. New technological advancements have been used to make the USB2Air wireless USB 2.0 video extension system ready for the production and available in early Q2 of 2017.
Making A USB Webcam Wireless
This video demonstrates the brand new HuddleCamHD USB 2 Air in action. Here Paul shows us how to make a Logitech Webcam wireless. The USB2Air provides a wireless USB 2.0 extension link between the host and device transceivers up to 30 Mbps. This is more than enough bandwidth to use with multiple 1080p webcams, audio conferencing devices and even interactive touch screens.
So in this video, we wirelessly extend the USB 2.0 for a Logitech c920 to demonstrate a popular use case for Wireless USB extension. As we mention many times in a conferencing space environment the computer is either behind the LCD or a laptop on the table. Either way the USB2Air can be used as a wireless USB extender. If your laptop is on the conference room table you can use the USB2Air to connect devices wirelessly such as a Webcam to your laptop. If you computer is behind the LCD display you can use the USB2Air to add additional products such as a document camera or touch screen controller.
The reason why the USB2Air is so special is because the latency is super low (1 millisecond). So this wireless USB extension can be used for real time applications such as video conferencing and collaboration. As you can see in the video the latency is just as good as if the USB webcam was plugged directly into the computer. The only drawback is that this is a Windows-only product! That means this will work with Windows 7, 8, 8.1 or 10 but not any Mac computers!
Wireless Touch Screens – Interactive Projects and More
In this video, we review how to wirelessly transmit HDMI and USB control for touch screens with the USB2AIR. The USB2Air is a wireless USB video transceiver set that allows computers to wirelessly transmit data over a USB link up to 30 Mbps. This easily allows us to send HD 1080p video along with touch screen control.
The Sabrent USB 2.0 to HDMI adapter is SKU: USB-HDMI and retails for $49.99. This device provides the needed HDMI video from your computer connected wirelessly to the touch screen. The USB2Air provides the USB 2.0 control cable connection for most interactive products along with up 1080p video on a single channel with less than 1 milliseconds of latency.
As you can see the USB2Air is plugged into a USB to HDMI adapter from Sabrent and the USB connection on the Sharp Touch Screen Monitor. This allows our Windows computer to wirelessly send video using the standard display link drivers along with control for touch screen interactivity.
