    USB-LPT converter

    In order to circumvent problem that modern laptops do not have LPT ports, necessary to control long exposure webcams, we have manufactured special USB-LPT converter (standard converters don't do the job) and new version of SalsaJ . Together, converter with new SalsaJ allow to control webcam through 2 USB ports. Note that the USB-LPT converter works only with Windows operating system, see also detailed description and installation guide
