MuxLab 500170 overview

  • 1Description

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. Using CAT5e/6 cables, this Active VGA Hub allows you to install the display at a distance of up to 1000’ (305 m) from the source. In addition, an Active Repeater Hub can be used to further extend the transmission length.

The GUI software controls allow you to vary parameters such as the gain, skew, and sharpness of the video signal. It supports RS232 signaling and features a USB port that lets you manually perform maintenance operations.
