VGA boosters (one in one out) or line drivers are convenient solutions for video and audio signals up to 200 feet. If your application needs a run of over 200 feet, such as an auditorium or a control center then a VGA extender that employs a CAT5/6/7 cable can take you up to 330 feet with resolutions up to 1280x1024. Anything longer than 330 feet will require fiber optic extenders which can transmit a video, audio and control signals up to 30 km or 18.75 miles with resolutions for UXGA up to 1600x1200.
