There's no need to use expensive, hard-to-terminate VGA cable for extending high-resolution video. The Mini CATx VGA Extender enables you to use ordinary CAT5/5e/6 UTP cable to link a video monitor or display up to 500 feet from your PC or video source.
The model featured here is the system's standalone receiver. It works with the transmitter that converts a PC's VGA signal into a format suitable for transmission over a non-networked CATx link. The transmitter communicates point to point over the link with the receiver, which then converts the signal back to VGA for connection to your monitor, projector, or other display device.
In the transmission, there's little or no degradation of video quality. Supporting VGA resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 at even the maximum distance of 500 feet, the Mini CATx VGA Extender system features skew compensation controllable by the receiver. Using equalization and gain control, you can fine-tune video for a clear image on your remote display.
Plus, the system has an EDID copy feature. With a push of a button on the transmitter unit, you can copy precise EDID information from the remotely attached monitor back to the source computer's video card. This way, you can ensure optimum video communications between the two, with the video card adapting automatically to the monitor's supported resolution, refresh rate, and timing characteristics across the CATx link.
Even better, the Mini CATx VGA Extender system requires power only at one end - great for applications where you're short on outlets. You can also transport the very compact standalone transmitter and receiver units and install them with ease. Their small form factor design makes them ideal for discreet installation in areas frequented by the public.
