The VGA Extender over CAT5/6 with Audio is used to extend transmission distances for VGA signals with stereo audio up to 1000’ (300m) over a single CAT5/6 cable. Employing 15-pin HD connectors for input and output connections, the extender supports signal resolutions up to WUXGA (1920x1200@60Hz) and HDTVs to projectors.

Featuring separate gain and peaking rotary switches for adjusting brightness and skew, the receiver allows you to adjust signal quality over variable cable lengths. The transmitter maintains signal integrity and rejects noise interference by providing buffering at the output and features an additional VGA port for local display which allows you to monitor the data being sent. In addition, it comes with a 3.5mm jack for stereo audio. The VGA Extender is rack or under-desk mountable, and requires 5V DC supply for operation provided by the included external power supply.

          Comments about KanexPro VGA Extender over CAT5/6 with Audio:

          Although I only am sending about 100 feet, it worked as good as the Extron units that I have used in other installs. The price point makes this a go to for me even for shorter runs (75-100 feet) that could be handled by a quality VGA cable and the longer runs too.

          • Replicating Vga Displays

          Comments about KanexPro VGA Extender over CAT5/6 with Audio:

          I'm using two of these to extend a dual monitor / extended desktop to a workstation across the room. I've tried competing products with signal "auto adjust" and they simply don't work.

          The remote displays are as clear as the local displays. I am not using the audio feature of this product and cannot comment on its performance.

          The value is execeptional as I got two for less than I paid for 1 of another brand.

          I have no complaints about this product.

            Comments about KanexPro VGA Extender over CAT5/6 with Audio:

            I used this product a few days ago as a test to run someone's computer into our projection system about 100 feet away. After a few adjustments to the gain, the image came in great. We've run a line underneath our auditorium and plan on putting this under the stage to accommodate for anyone wanting to run their computer from there. The run is probably 200' total. I'm not sure if this thing does go 1000' as advertised, as I have no need to run a line that long.

              Works well over 265m distance transmitting audio/video in HD for international photography events. Have used this successfully for 2 years for Paraty em Foco Festival with no complaints from the hundreds of pro photographers who attend.
