Universal Serial Bus (USB) is a lot more than a way to connect your keyboard to your computer. USB is being used to control a multitude of devices such as video and image annotators, scanners, document cameras, interactive white boards and other devices. USB also transfers files and is common in sharing music, video and data.

What are the limitations of USB? What are the speeds and how do you know whether your USB connection will work to the desired level? An in-depth treatment of USB as it is applied to an AV-centric project is long overdue. Don’t let USB failures cost you time and money on your next project!

Participants in this program will leave with a full understanding of the genesis and evolution of the USB standard, which tools can be used to troubleshoot the USB network, and which challenges and pitfalls must be avoided when integrating this common data connections with an AV project.
