Tether Tools today introduced the new TetherBoost Pro System, billed as "the first streamlined solution for common USB 3.0 tether connection challenges." The TetherBoost Pro System alleviates a common problem among USB 3.0 camera and digital back users who frequently experience dropped tethering connections or are unable to get a tethered connection started at all. The core issue is that computer manufacturers, often in an attempt to be as efficient with power as possible, are either under-powering or dynamically-powering their USB 3.0 ports. The TetherBoost Pro regulates the power from a computer to DSLRs and digital backs, eliminating these limitations and allowing a tethered connection to operate up to full USB3 speeds for connections from 15 to 65 feet without any loss in signal. To achieve this distance, multiple TetherBoost Pro devices can be added to base USB and active extension cables. Included in the TetherBoost Pro kit is a JerkStopper Extension Lock, an effective locking device that keeps cable ends protected from frustrating disconnects, damage, and electrical hazards. The JerkStopper Extension Lock comes with two included rubber washers that waterproof your connection, further protecting your connection and holding the cable in place. The TetherBoost Pro System is now available at the website below.

USB 3.0 Tethered Connections Now Reliable Up to 65 Feet with New TetherBoost Pro from Tether Tools

Phoenix, AZ (July 13, 2016) - Tether Tools introduces the new TetherBoost Pro System - the first streamlined solution for common USB 3.0 tether connection challenges, ensuring a consistent, reliable and fast USB 3.0 connection between DSLRs, Mirrorless or Digital Backs and a computer, now at distances up to 65 feet.

The TetherBoost Pro System alleviates a common problem among USB 3.0 camera and digital back users who frequently experience dropped tethering connections or are unable to get a tethered connection started at all. These challenges are affecting some of the most popular cameras on the market, including USB 3.0 cameras from Nikon, Canon, Phase One, Mamiya Leaf, and Pentax.

The core issue is that computer manufacturers, often in an attempt to be as efficient with power as possible, are either under-powering or dynamically-powering their USB 3.0 ports. These manufacturers are not currently considering the unique needs of photographers and this is causing connectivity issues.

The TetherBoost Pro regulates the power from a computer to DSLRs and Digital Backs, eliminating these limitations and allowing a tethered connection to operate up to full USB3 speeds for tethering connections from 15 to 65 feet without any loss in signal. The TetherBoost Pro also features the TrueConnect LED indicator which ensures signal connectivity between the camera and computer.

The TetherBoost Pro does what no other device on the market can do, allowing photographers using a USB 3.0 or digital back camera to reliably shoot tethered as far as 65 feet away from their workstation without dropped signals. To achieve this distance, multiple TetherBoost Pro devices can be added to base USB and active extension cables. 

The TetherBoost Pro can be used with or without external power and will facilitate producing a reliable connection either way. However, adding power to the line will reduce the customary drain on camera and computer batteries. The included USB-D/C cable is optional for adding a USB external battery pack or A/C power (adapter included).

"For a photographer, technical issues including a dropped tethered connection are incredibly frustrating, especially if you have clients on set," said Josh Simons, Tether Tools President. "The TetherBoost Pro System ensures a strong, reliable tethered connection, stopping those frustrating dropped connections and is a must-have for any photographer who shoots using a USB 3.0 camera."

Included in the TetherBoost Pro kit is a JerkStopper Extension Lock, an effective locking device that keeps cable ends protected from frustrating disconnects, damage, and electrical hazards. The simple clam-shell design enables you to close the JerkStopper Extension Lock around each end of the TetherBoost Pro and USB 3.0 cable, then twist to lock the cords securely and safely together. The JerkStopper Extension Lock comes with two included rubber washers that waterproof your connection, further protecting your connection and holding the cable in place. 

The TetherBoost Pro System is now available at www.TetherTools.com and from Tether Tools’ Authorized Resellers.
