    Use This splitter to distribute your audio-rich multimedia presentation from a central CPU to multiple monitors over CAT5 cable.

    Don't just watch it—listen to it.
    Multimedia is more than just video—it's audio, too. A full-impact multimedia presentation is the one you hear as well as see.

    The BLACK BOX® CAT5 Audio/Video Splitter enables you to send the multimedia presentation on your computer monitor to two, four, or more monitors. And your presentation will get more attention because your audience hears your message, as well as sees it.

    Like our Compact CAT5 Audio/Video Splitter, the CAT5 Audio/Video Splitter enables you to send both audio and video from a CPU to multiple computer monitors over ordinary shielded CAT5 cable. But this splitter is built into a box that's larger and more substantial, making the splitter more suitable for environments such as computer rooms. For easy accessability, all connectors are on one side of the unit.

    Just plug and play!
    The CAT5 Audio/Video Splitter is a pure plug-and-play hardware solution—just plug in the connectors and it works. There’s no special software to install.

    You'll need one CAT5 Audio/Video Splitter for your CPU plus a remote unit for each monitor you're sending audio and video to.

    The CAT5 Audio/Video Splitter uses ordinary CAT5 cable to distances of up to 360 feet (109.7 m). It comes in both 2-channel and 4-channel versions. To broadcast to more monitors, you can easily cascade splitters.

    The splitter is compatible with all major brands of sound cards, and you can adjust speaker volume by using Windows® or the remote units.

    More uses than you can imagine!
    Here are just a few applications that benefit from sending multimedia to multiple monitors over inexpensive, easy-to-handle CAT5 cable:
  • Information systems in schools, hospitals, airports, and office buildings. With the addition of audio, you can add voice-overs or attention-getting sound effects to your information screens.
  • In education, video splitters can be used to give each student his or her own display so he or she doesn’t have to crowd around a single monitor. Having both audio and video in one place engages the senses, increasing learning retention.
  • Security cameras for highly sensitive areas are frequently set up to send images to more than one security station. Audio enables security personnel to pick up suspicious sounds as well as sights.
