Question: Can I plug an Apogee CCD camera Alta U16M to this LAN extender system?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, the Icron USB Ranger 2304-LAN does not support isochronous devices. We are not familiar with the Apogee CCD camera, but many webcams and imaging devices are isochronous.

If on the other hand the Alta doesn't use isochronous communications, this device should work.

If you require a device that supports isochnonous communications, you may be interested in looking at the USB Ranger 2201 (https://www.kvm-switches-online.com/00-00297.html.
