Use CAT5 cable instead of VGA cable for your long video runs
- Baluns support VGA resolutions of 640 x 480 (15 MHz) at distances of 450 feet (137.1 m). Higher resolutions are possible at shorter distances when transferring SVGA, XGA, and SXGA video.
- Save conduit space by using existing UTP cables to distribute video, as well as keyboard/mouse signals, to classrooms or conference rooms.
- Great for long source-to-display connections where using coax cables can be cumbersome and expensive.
Source-to-display extensions without the need for VGA cabling. Putting a lot of distance between a PC video source and a display device can be expensive if you use standard VGA cable to connect the two. How about using lower-cost twisted-pair cable instead? With BLACK BOX® VGA Baluns, you can.
These compact, nonpowered devices enable you to quickly set up VGA source-to-display runs at distances up to 450 feet (137.1 m).
And because they plug into the PC and display devices directly, setting up and dismantling a video connection is easy. For this reason, they’re ideal for temporary cable patches in training or conference settings. For instance, use flexible copper cable instead of bulky VGA cable to project a laptop image onto a large plasma or CRT screen—and lose none of the original video resolution in the transfer!
