Active extenders can chain cables to the desired length if you want to push the maximum passive length. After addressing audiovisual needs, input is next. USB cable length depends on data transfer rate and USB version. USB 2.0 cables can be 16.4 feet long (5 meters). USB 3.0 and 3.1 allow 9.84 feet. These are the maximum lengths for ordinary cables. Longer cables or cables with active repeaters can extend the distance, but they may compromise performance or dependability. Connect a USB hub or docking station to the cord to connect your peripherals. This works for audio and video too. Most USB docking stations contain HDMI and audio connections and support DisplayPort or HDMI over USB.
