HD15 Male/Male VGA input cable; (1), (3), (5), (7), or (9) 10-ft. Male/Female VGA Video Extension Cable, depending on the number of channels the splitter has.
Sharp images. Long-distance broadcasting. The versatility to handle a variety of applications, in any kind of environment.
These qualities—and more—have made BLACK BOX® VGA Video Splitters industry favorites. And they’ll make our VGA Splitters your favorite solutions, too.
A single VGA Video Splitter enables you to transmit displays from your CPU to up to 10 other monitors all within 250 feet (76.2 m). And if you cascade the splitters, you can transmit to as many monitors as necessary. Furthermore, the 300-MHz bandwidth also provides the clearest images at any resolution—VGA, SVGA, even XGA®!
Setup is simple. Just connect the cables from all monitors to a splitter and flip a few DIP switches. That’s all it takes to project what’s on your PC’s screen to multiple monitors.
The uses for VGA Video Splitters are practically limitless, but some applications are very popular.
The tale of the (video) tape. Everyone knows how prominent the stock market is in the news. Brokerage firms, stock exchanges, and day trader offices rely on the power of our video splitters.
Just think, one video splitter enables you to run real-time ticker crawls across multiple monitors. Another splitter puts up-to-the-moment business news on other monitors.
Broadcasting via the circuitous route. Companies that use Closed-Circuit TV (CCTV) feeds can spread the message even further with a VGA Video Splitter. Splitters are perfect for department stores, sports bars, and stadiums.
Your presentation is a real class act. Are you in front of an audience on a regular basis? If so, VGA Video Splitters enable you to bring that extra, professional polish to classroom lectures or business presentations. Show everyone the graphic details that convey your points or seal the deal.
The tools of the trade. Make your company’s presence known at your next trade show. Create multiple attention-grabbing video kiosks or senses-shattering walls of video. Attract attendees to your booth, drum up positive word of mouth, and look great doing it. Your bottom line will thank you for it.
Music to your…eyes. Nowadays, concerts aren’t just about the music—they’re multimedia events. Enhance the show with video images transmitted to multiple, large-screen displays. The show goes on in new and spectacular ways.
Safety first. The factory floor is unsafe for CPUs, but your workers need information to do their jobs. With VGA Video Splitters, you can distribute news and information to workstations on the floor while maintaining CPUs in separate rooms.
Better get the best cable possible. For the sharpest images split over long distances, choose our VGA Video Extension Cable (EVNPS05) optimized for the VGA Video Splitters. They’re tough enough to drive your video signal 250 feet (76.2 m) across most environments.

Features: If your installation is small, order a ServSwitch Wizard Extender Kit (ACU5010A, ACU5012A) or two. When your small installation grows, you can rackmount the modules in a space-saving chassis.
These KVM extenders work with CAT5, CAT5e, or CAT6 cable. Plus, you can use them with all IBM® PCs and compatibles. They support Alpha, SGI™, and RS/6000® computers, plus Microsoft® IntelliMouse®, IntelliMouse Explorer, and other common wheel mice. Connections for PS/2® keyboards and mice are built in.
If your PC has a 5-pin DIN AT® connector or you have an AT style keyboard, simply add an adapter (FA221). And if you use an extended keyboard, all the keys work because the extender sends keyboard data in its native format.
ServSwitch Wizard Extender Kit (ACU5010A) Choose this extender kit to place a keyboard, monitor, and mouse up to 656.1 feet (200 m) from your CPU.
Each kit comes with a transmitter module for local CPU connections and a receiver module for remote workstation (KVM) connections, as well as an adapter cable to connect the local module to the keyboard, video, and mouse connectors on your CPU.
The receiver module also features an optional password security function that, when enabled, switches off the video and disconnects the keyboard and mouse.
