A Single A/V Source Distributes Audio-Video plus VGA over CAT-5 to up to Eight Receivers

GefenTV's new 1:8 multi-format distribution product allows VGA, component, composite, and S-Video plus audio, to be distributed to as many as 8 receivers. This versatile product is useful for PCs, for digital signage applications and educational institutions. The video data is broadcast from the sender to all 8 ports simultaneously. The receiver's 2-port switch/hub can be daisy-chained. Additional features of this product allow the facility of audio-video distribution over a local area network's infrastructure.

How It Works

Connect the A/V source into the sender input. Then connect up to eight CAT-5 cables to the eight receivers. Another connection concept may be to connect one CAT-5 on the sender side to the network infrastructure. In that configuration the receivers will be connected to the network as well. So, if a PC is connected to the network, then it also needs to be connected into the receiver instead. Also, the video output from the receiver needs to be connected to a display. Power up and the signal is passed directly to all outputs which have a device or the infrastructure wired to them.

Note:  The highest resolution is 720p or 1280x1024 The recommended length of CAT-5 cable when connected directly between Sender and Receiver is 330ft (100m)
