NitroAV announced on Monday the release of its professional
FireWire 800 8-Port Hub/Repeater, which is based on Texas Instruments’ latest chipsets. It allows you to network multiple computers or simultaneously connect different devices or peripherals to the same machine. You can also use it as a repeater that enables you to place devices up to an additional 15 feet away from each other. The US$159.95 hub/repeater is backward compatible with FireWire 400 devices and features an internal power supply for providing juice to low-powered peripherals.
