The
USB-400 FO is a four-port USB 2.0 hub that can power devices up to 1,640 feet
from the computer, according to the company. It's meant for professional
applications "as it offers invulnerability to electromagnetic and radio signal
interference," Gefen said.

It
reportedly operates through compact sender/receiver units, with the sender
connecting to the computer and the receiver connecting to four remote USB
devices. Two multi-mode fiber-optics cables terminated in LC connectors connect
local and remote locations -- both sender and receiver are individually powered,
the company said, and local connection cables are included.

Suggested
retail is $1,599.
