Lantronix UBox

Mavromatic have just released a video review of the Lantronix UBox 2100, a kind of USB server that allows control of USB Devices over the Internet.  A four port version, the UBox 4100 is also available.

“UBox® is a USB-to-Ethernet device server that removes the distance limitations of USB, enabling you to access USB peripherals over a network. These devices can be individually dedicated or shared among users, maximizing your USB device investment.

Available in two and four port configurations, UBox provides increased mobility enabling you to remotely access and control USB devices via a network connection or the Internet. With this compact device users can network peripherals such as web cams, USB speakers, storage subsystems, security ID devices, card readers, bar code scanners, multifunction printers, scanners and even PDAs easily and without distance limitations. Beneficial to OEMs and systems integrators designing products and solutions for a variety of markets, some additional applications for the UBox include printing, medical devices, and security and access control.

UBox offers a host of competitive features, including a dedicated networked USB host controller, compact design and feature-rich software that enables devices to be dedicated to individual users or shared among many users on a network. An auto-connect feature allows multiple users to share a printer automatically and without user intervention.

Isochronous Audio and Video
Data-intensive applications such as USB audio and video demand time critical, guaranteed bandwidth to prevent delays that would adversely affect the quality of images and speech. With isochronous transfer support, the UBox maintains the necessary bandwidth and guarantees data will be delivered without delays.

UBox is the first device server to support the USB isochronous transfer standard allowing standard USB audio and video peripherals to be distributed across a network. UBox 2100 supports isochronous audio and video and UBox 4100 supports isochronous audio.”    :
