Gefen Splits Video Eight Ways with CAT-5 Cable

CEDIA Booth 8

Indianapolis, IN – Simple, economical CAT-5 cables are used to extend and distribute computer data or other video sources to eight different displays with Gefen’s new 1:8 VGA CAT-5 Distribution Amplifier. This new solution joins Gefen’s existing selection of audio/video tools for system extension, distribution and performance.

Video walls, airport monitors, kiosks and similar environments are targeted for use with this new distribution amplifier from Gefen. It supports sources and displays that output and accept VGA signals, commonly used for computers, consumer electronics and displays including plasma and LCD.

“Analog sources and displays are still being utilized throughout the industry and particularly in those cases where primarily text-based information needs to be fed to multiple monitors,” said Hagai Gefen, president and CEO. “This new solution provides a reliable method of signal splitting that also supports video extension.”

CAT-5 cables are used for extension, capable of sending VGA signals up to 330 feet and Gefen supplies CAT-5 cables in various lengths for this purpose. VGA-CAT-5 receivers are supplied for each monitor on the receiving end.
