 We'd really appreciate it if you would "share" this campaign and a comment about the LagBuster with friends all over the world.

What Is The LagBuster™?


It's happened to you at one time or another. That moment when, seemingly out of the blue, a giant wave of unbearably huge lag hits, creating extremely slow response in your favorite online game - or the repetitive lag spikes that can get really annoying when your favorite game becomes unplayable.

Lag is the single most frustrating issue for online gamers. Gamers spend hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars to solve the problem. They buy the fastest PC or best gaming console, plus the fastest Internet connection, plus the fastest modem, plus the fastest router – yet they still get laggy online gaming.

Why? There are two reasons.

First, lag is a network congestion issue not a hardware or bandwidth issue. There are many more devices and applications being used in the home which causes severe network congestion. This leads to time sensitive packets, like gaming packets, being delayed or dropped – This is lag!

Second, lag can also be a software/game synchronization issue which is also known as lag compensation. Lag compensation is a server side methodology which attempts to synchronize game play for multiple online players. Today, most popular games incorporate lag compensation to handicap players who have high speed internet connections. 

The LagBuster is a new home network device, easily installed between your modem and router, that will radically reduce lag and lag compensation effects from online multi-player games for the PC, Microsoft Xbox consoles, and Sony PlayStation consoles.

With its patent pending technology, the LagBuster eliminates lag by (1) rapidly eliminating home network congestion and (2) automatically identifying game packets and preventing them from being delayed or dropped. LagBuster provides the “cruise control” you need for smooth game play, even when your router or modem would normally slow down with applications (e.g. online gaming, Skype, movie streaming, etc.) competing for Internet bandwidth.

The LagBuster’s Counter-Measure II™ software (that runs on the LagBuster) fixes the game synchronization mismatch caused by in-game “lag compensation” algorithms. Lots of gamers have stopped playing their favorite game because lag compensation rendered their game unfair or unplayable. Counter-Measure II allows you to customize your game’s timing and bandwidth so you can adjust your real time latency and/or bandwidth. This neutralizes the negative impact of lag compensation. Customers using Counter-Measure II repeatedly demonstrate that games such as Call of Duty, Battlefield, and Gears of War can be played with nearly zero lag.



Advantages


Improve Your Scores - Gain a competitive advantage by eliminating lag and enhancing your overall gameplay experience. Watch your K/D ratio skyrocket by improving bullet registry in FPS games and climb to the top of the leaderboards.

Save money - No need for expensive subscriptions to high-bandwidth Internet connections and costly networking hardware. Some Internet service providers charge as much as $50-80 more every month for gamers who want fast connections, but they still experience lag!

Increase Your Speed - Eliminate lag and game delays due to your home network no matter how much or how little activity is happening on your network. Gamers can experience lag spikes even when it seems as though there is nothing else happening on the network. LagBuster can drastically decrease your in-game ping time and get rid of 100's of milliseconds of lag caused by your router and modem.

Hosting Games - Recruit skilled clan members and teammates who want to play in faster lobbies.



The Technology


Game Signature Analysis - automatically identifies and uniquely prioritizes game Internet traffic on the home network using individual game signatures.

Instantaneous Speed Measurement - measures the Internet speed instantaneously and continually. 

Adaptive Rate Control - matches the data transfer rate with the customer’s real time line capacity. 

Dynamic Bandwidth Management - adjusts bandwidth allocation dynamically using only the required bandwidth with no slow down.

Our technology is patent pending.



Features


Counter-Measure II kills Lag Compensation!

Counter-Measure II is a defensive, customizable software tool that runs on the LagBuster to assist you in neutralizing the effects of Lag Compensation in online games such as Call of Duty, Battlefield, Halo, and Gears of War.

By employing digital signal-processing techniques, Counter-Measure II allows you to electronically “camouflage” your real-time latency and/or bandwidth by adjusting your In-Game Timing or In-Game Bandwidth Speed. Basically, Counter-Measure II allows you to alter the level of Lag Compensation you receive by enabling you to control what the on-line matchmaking servers measure when they interrogate your connection.

Learn more from the Counter-Measure II User Manual.


Simultaneously Play any System – Play the PC, Microsoft's Xbox 360, Xbox One and Sony's PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 at the same time.

Tagger GTX

Tagger GTX is an incredible PC software application that is simply the fastest, easiest way to boost PC game performance ever!

Tagger GTX uses an innovative “application aware” technology that identifies PC game traffic with 100% accuracy. You just select which PC games you would like to be given highest priority, and Tagger GTX will electronically tag those games. Your LagBuster will then automatically reserve sufficient network bandwidth to eliminate lag for all of your tagged online PC games.

Manufacturing Process


It is really important to us that we deliver a 100% quality product to gamers, so we chose manufacturing partners with a strong reputation for delivering excellent products on time. We were very fortunate that one of the world's best electronics manufacturers is almost in our backyard here in California. Sonic Manufacturing Technologies has been incredible - in our inaugural run, we had ZERO defects. Our injection molded plastics are manufactured by American Precision Products in Huntsville, Alabama. They were unbelievable in helping us come up with the unique look of the LagBusters that we are making available exclusively to our Indiegogo campaign supporters. They are both great companies and we have no doubt that we can deliver your LagBuster on time!


Why We Need Your Support

Since we released the LagBuster, we have had so many emails from gamers all over the world asking how they can get a LagBuster. The founders and friends and family have funded Sejent to date, but it takes a lot more to be able to meet the demand and distribute and support the LagBuster in other countries. We want to get the LagBuster to gamers all over the world so they can finally play their favorite games lag free! 


Risks

The LagBuster has been on the market in limited release and installed in hundreds of different home network configurations, so we know it works! We have an established process with our manufacturers and have developed a sophisticated testing environment to ensure a quality product. We need to receive our international certifications, so we can sell a consumer technology product in other countries. Given that the LagBuster received certification in the US and Canada, we do not expect any difficulties in other countries.  Our team has experience in producing and selling consumer products globally, so we believe we have built enough time into our delivery dates to achieve them. 

We promise timely and transparent communication throughout the process.
