Bluetooth extender adds range to BT-1 Webcam

Ecamm Network has launched a new accessory to go with its BT-1 Wireless Webcam, the BTX Bluetooth Range Extender. The device is claimed to improve the Mac's Bluetooth signal, extending BT-1's range by up to 100 feet. The BTX extender also enables Bluetooth connectivity on systems lacking integrated components. Users can attach and power the BTX accessory simply by plugging it into an open USB port.

The BT-1 Wireless Webcam offers streaming H.264 video at 640x480 resolution, while an included mini-tripod features flexible legs for mounting or positioning the camera.

Users can purchase the BTX Bluetooth Range Extender from the company's website for $30, with the webcam available for $150.

    stupid marketing

    This is NOT a range extender, as that at the very least implies that it uses the built-in BlueTooth module, extending the range of that. This product does NOT. It is a completely separate BlueTooth module that may have better BlueTooth reception than the built-in module.

    As such, it may have issues in the future w.r.t. driver availability/compatibility and compatibility with Apple and 3rd party BlueTooth-related tools and apps.

    Note, I am NOT saying there is or will be problems with this solution, just that customers could be confused by how this product is being marketed.
