MediaCento VX Cascadable Long-Range Receiver  

A cascadable receiver/repeater for extending VGA video, stereo audio, and serial signals to additional screens.


Extended Double Diamond™ Warranty Available (3 Additional Year)

Product Highlights

  • A receiver/repeater for extending high-quality VGA plus audio and serial signals over ordinary CATx cabling.
  • Connecting multiple units via their CATx ports enables distances more than 2000 feet (609.6 m).
  • Supports cascading from its video port to a 4- or 8-port transmitter.

  • Further Details

  • System features an icon-based GUI for easily managing groups of extender connections.
  • Features advanced skew compensation, sharpness, and brightness controls.
  • Supports VGA resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 (or 1920 x 1080).
  • Enables independently turning on/off of video and audio ports.
  • 3.5-mm stereo jacks for audio and speaker connections.
  • For serial device extensions, transmits RS-232 (TX/GND) signals.

    Use ordinary copper UTP cable to distribute analog RGB video to a remote room with the MediaCento™ VX system. When receiving signals from a compatible transmitter, this receiver enables VGA video to be routed to another CATx-connected receiver as well as to a second transmitter on its outputs.

    Because the transmitter and receiver install directly into an existing non-networked CATx infrastructure, integration is easy. There's no longer the need to pull new VGA cables to distribute video to distant monitors and displays.

    Between a trasmitter and a long-range receiver, the system supports distances up to 1000 feet (300 m). But the real benefit of the AVX-VGA-TP-CSRX receiver is that it's daisychainable and cascadable: You can daisychain four AVX-VGA-TP-CSRX receivers via their RJ-45 ports to boost distances more than 2000 feet (609.6 m), and instead of using its VGA output to connect a monitor, you can use it to cascade to a MediaCento VX 8-Port (AVX-VGA-TP-TX-8) or 4-port (AVX-VGA-TP-TX-4) Transmitter.

    Depending on the number and types of MediaCento VX Transmitters and Receivers ordered, the system supports as many as 32 threads and more than 1000 displays in a VGA distribution network. (For details and help configuring your MediaCento VX setup, contact Black Box Tech Support.)

    The system supports most common VGA resolutions, including WUXGA (1920 x 1200), Full HD (1920 x 1080), and UXGA (1600 x 1200) video on analog connectors, even at the longer distances.

    What's more, unique equalizer (sharpness), gain (brightness), and RGB skew controls on the receiver make it easy to fine-tune the video image quality over longer CATx cable runs.

    MediaCento VX is great for:
    • Any digital signage application with VGA screens near CATx wallplates.
    • Sending video to distant classroom monitors in schools.
    • Sharing video with older VGA monitors in control rooms.
    • Distributing legacy VGA video across a hospital campus.
    • Extending corporate video to monitors in different rooms.
    • Anywhere you need to quickly manage video output on groups of screens (government buildings, transit stations, malls, and retail stores).
