hi jack,

i'm using a firewire 400 over RJ45 extender (from AVT) on a tour with an
AVT Guppy
it's work fine with 50m cable, it should work at least until 100m but i
never tried
it's not possible to use switch to increase the distance with this kind of

you can use certain switches with GigE but it increases latency i  think

another solution for very long distance (more than 100m) is the optical
you can find some firewire over optical fiber extender

Basler made a technical report on industrial cameras interface here :

hope this helps

do it yourself
