In the wild crows are very smart, one of the smartest birds in fact and they are even intelligent enough to help raise siblings when old enough. You see crows mate for life usually and spend most of the year living in pairs of 2 (when not roosting of course) When nesting season approaches and the pair are lucky enough to have an old enough juvenile they are frequently seen defending the nest from predators and bringing food to mom, dad or the younger siblings directly, with one study showing up to 80 percent of American crows nest looked at had helping hands connecting the generations for the parents and ensuring they survive and strengthening the bond they have or for the sake of this blog tie in the link up power. This is just one example of linking up in nature that shows how beneficial and smart it is but now I will show you the benefits of doing the same when it comes to camera technology. Introducing the Raven™ 3104 & Raven™ 3124 USB 3.1 Extender for your CAT 6a/7, or Multimode Fiber Extender Systems.
The only thing you have to know is how far you want to extend and whether you need fiber optic long distance or CAT 6a/7 for a smaller job, its a perfect pair. For CAT 6a/7 we have the Icron Raven 3104 4-port USB 3.1, 100m CAT 6a/7 Extender System allowing users to extend all USB 3.1 Gen 1 (5 Gbps) device types as well as USB 2.0 and 1.1 devices across a point-to-point connection up to 100m over a single CAT 6a/7 cable. As an example, this is perfect for conference rooms using USB 3.1 cameras as shown below.
Can be used/paired with flash and hard drive, keyboards, mice, interactive whiteboards, touchscreens, docking stations, USB to video converters, audio devices, and/or any other USB 3, 2 and 1 device. It has a blazing 10x the speed when compared to ANYother Box USB extender on the market and it is the only extender currently capable of CAT X 3.0 extension, with CAT X being widely preferred over fiber in virtually all typical applications.

On top of all these great features, you also have the additional choice if you are inclined or have a USB 3.1 extender application that requires fiber optic cable instead of the CAT 6a/7 then we have that covered too. The Icron USB 3-2-1 Raven™ 3124 has a fiber link cable connection that provides great benefit to medical and military personnel especially as it provides electrical isolation for extra security. It provides all the same applications uses as the Raven 3104 on top of this and extends up to 200 meters simultaneously over Multimode Fiber and has an extra treat for installers because you can leverage an existing network infrastructure without having to run additional dedicated cables or allow users (especially PTZ or Pan Tilt Zoom Applications) to connect Ethernet capabilities through the extender without having to run a separate cable. Icron makes it as easy as plug and go with reliable connections and unparalleled interoperability.
On the endless list of applications these as well as the Raven 3104 are perfect for any Security & Monitoring systems, Live Staging & Production requiring Pro-AV set up, any type of business setting for Boardrooms, meeting rooms or huddle rooms where employees get together to chat and use communications software over Skype or the like.
It has become extremely popular in the Machine Vision industry for testing and taking/recording measurements of various materials. And most important according to some is the use with Medical systems and servers as part of a KVM system or proprietary medical device/solution.
