ATEN VE156 Overview

The VGA over CAT5 Wall Plate Extender from Aten is comprised of one transmitter and one receiver wall plate which extend VGA and audio signals up to 492' using a CAT5e cable (not included). This extender supports popular widescreen formats and resolutions of up to 1920 x 1200 at 98.4' and 1280 x 1024 at 492.1'. Additional wall-plate pairs can be used to increase the transmission range or multiply the sources and/or displays in your setup.

The VGA over CAT5 Wall-Plate Extender can be powered at either the transmitter or receiver side, and uses a second CAT5e cable to transmit the power signal.
