  • Description

    MediaCento VX Single-Port Transmitter


    Quick Facts

  • Use ordinary CATx cable instead of expensive VGA cable to extend high-quality multimedia.
  • Transmits high-quality VGA plus audio and serial signals over standard UTP cabling.
  • Features an icon-based GUI for easily managing the system.

  • Further Details

  • Supports VGA resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 (or 1920 x 1080).
  • When paired with a long-range receiver, extends video up to 1000 feet (300 m).
  • To go farther, use with the cascadable receivers to reach distances of more than 2000 feet (609.6 m).
  • Long-range receivers feature advanced skew compensation, sharpness, and brightness controls.
  • Also has local video and audio ports for plugging in a monitor and speakers.
  • Enables independently turning on/off of video and audio ports.
  • Automatically detects and indicates signal from the video source.
  • EDID copy function for optimal PC-to-screen performance.
  • 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. The extender sends VGA video along with stereo audio and serial signals 492 feet (150 m) or 1000 feet (300 m), or more than 2000 feet (609.6 m) when the distribution chain includes the family's cascadable receiver repeaters.

    Because the transmitter and receivers 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.

    Plus, 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, MediaCento VX features a unique, user-friendly graphical user interface for managing all VGA screen connections. No more fiddling with complex commands. Not only can you use the GUI to enable or disable audio/video output by clicking simply on icons, but you can also put extender devices into groups for easier control of screen connections—great for managing broadcasting and command and control applications.

    Simply add devices to a group that you'd like to control at the same time. You can also use the icon-based menu to easily add a transmitter to a connection pattern branch, set up and remove branches from a device, copy and paste a device branch to the another device, apply settings to all extender devices, and more.

    For connection to a management computer, the MediaCento VX Single-Port Transmitter includes an RJ-11 cable and RJ-11/DB9 converter for connecting via RS-232.

    Unique equalizer (sharpness), gain (brightness), and RGB skew controls on all receivers make it easy to fine-tune the video image quality over longer CATx cable runs.

    What's more, a second VGA port and second 3.5-mm audio jack on the extender transmitter enable you to connect a local monitor and speakers.

    Want to expand to additional screens in a system? Order one or more of our cascadable, long-range AVX-VGA-TP-CSRX receivers. They can be linked via their RJ-45 ports to work as signal repeaters (with a maximum of four units in a chain) and/or be used to cascade via their VGA video ports to another transmitter. Depending on the transmitters and receivers ordered, the system supports as many as 32 threads and more than 1000 displays in a VGA distribution network.

    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).

    What's included:
    • Transmitter
    • Power supply with 6-ft. (1.8-m) cord
    • 3.5-mm stereo audio cable
    • RJ-11 control cable
