Eye-catchers on the conference table

Challenge: The i-unit group was not satisfied with the audio quality during remote meetings. They were looking for a portable solution with excellent audio quality for use in their conference room but also at their client’s offices.

As previously mentioned you need an active repeater like this:

http://www.amazon.com/Active-Extension-Repeater-Female-Meters/dp/B002VG39BI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1316637244&sr=8-1

This one is 10 meters, or 32 feet and should be more than enough for your needs.

Note that you should only have one device plugged into the repeater, the signal is being boosted
by the cable over a longer distance, additional traffic may cause your webcam to freeze or hang.

11 dollars is the cost of that cable and 10 dollars amazon wants to ship via USPS. Its too much.
