Unibrain Fire-i™ Digital Camera on mac pro


    May 20 2011 | 10:06 am
    Dear all I would like to buy to Unibrain Fire-i™ Digital Camera and plug them on mac pro. So in mac pro. On a mac pro, there are two Firewire 800 ports out of one hand I was wondering if there were firewire cable 800/FireWire 600 of great length (2o meters). Furthermore, it is apparently possible to connect two cameras together, while connecting them to a single port firewiee 800, I know the maximum length of cable rating (with or without signal booster firewire)

      I think unibrain can supply longer cable lengths, at least fw400--don't know about 800. Try contacting them.

      I have 20M Datavido firewire 400 cable, which is not working with unibrain cameras on such a length (does works with dv cams).
      My advice is to use 10m cable with repeater in-between two cable.
      I manage to extend the cable up to 40m without any problems.
      The Repeater and the cable I used ware also from unibrain.
