The MuxLab 500170 Active VGA Managed Dispatcher Hub (8 Ports) is a cost-effective distribution system that duplicates a VGA signal along with stereo audio across 8 displays.

In addition, an Active Repeater Hub can be used to further extend the transmission length.

Thanks to local VGA and audio output ports, you can keep an eye on the quality of the video being transmitted. The GUI software controls allow you to vary parameters such as the gain, skew, and sharpness of the video signal.
