you would need an active extension to get this distance with a ps3eye.
something like this:

there are extender which incorporate cat5 cables, but they are quite expensive
and the cheaper should do the job, although i didn´t try them out myself.

Hi list,

this is a bit OT but I trust in this list, so I ask here.

I need an USB extender to plug a PS3 Eye webcam to my pc from 5/10 meters (or better more)

Someone have hints or wonderful solutions?

Note that I've used an analog cam with baluns and CAT5 cable with great success (25 meters with no problems - many thanks to David Kirkpatrick for his specs on the thread "Pd/GEM and camera for tracking" Sat, 7 Mar 2009 16:18:41) but for budget and framerate reasons I'm triyng with PS3 Eye and USB

Ciao, Dario
