What Can I Help You With?

MimioTeach

MimioTeach and Mimio Xi can go a maximum of 32′ (10 meters) with an unpowered or powered hub between the two cables. Lengths beyond that have not been tested, though using as many powered hubs as you want could provide a longer range (again, not approved by Mimio). If using the MimioCapture, the 16′ cable must be attached directly into the computer—unless you use one powered hub, then you can go up to 32′. The maximum length cable for the MimioView is 25′. The 10′ USB cable that comes with the MimioView plus a 15′ USB extension cable totals 25′ USB. 2.0 High Speed Extension: No power cable required.

Mimio Xi / Interactive

MimioTeach and Mimio Xi can go a maximum of 32′ (10 meters) with an unpowered or powered hub between the two cables. Lengths beyond that have not been tested, though using as many powered hubs as you want could provide a longer range (again, not approved by Mimio). If using the MimioCapture, the 16′ cable must be attached directly into the computer—unless you use one powered hub, then you can go up to 32′. The maximum length cable for the MimioView is 25′. The 10′ USB cable that comes with the MimioView plus a 15′ USB extension cable totals 25′ USB. 2.0 High Speed Extension: No power cable required.

MimioProjector

The USB specification limits the length of a cable run to 5 meters (16.4 feet) for USB 2.0 high-speed applications, or 3 meters (9.9 feet) for USB 1.1 low-speed devices. Essentially, this means that you are unable to “daisy-chain” several USB extension cables together and run them more than 5 meters. The MimioProjector uses USB 1.1.

Mimio tested the MimioProjector using the included mini USB cable and the cable in the link below, which is a USB 1.1 Extender over CAT5E or CAT6 Connection up to 150ft. This is what we recommend to purchase to extend the connection between the computer and the MimioProjector.
