Mini CAT5 Extender Kit, Component Video  

Extend video up to 500 feet over ordinary CAT5 cable.

AC504A-CP

Extended Double Diamond™ Warranty Available (3 Additional Year)

Product Highlights

  • Uses ordinary CAT5 cable to send 1600 x 1200 video up to 300 feet at 85 Hz or 1280 x 1024 video up to 500 feet at 60 Hz.
  • Eliminates the need for bulky VGA cables.
  • Buffers and boosts signals for a clear video image.
  • This single-channel extender connects a remote VGA screen via a receiver.


  • Further Details

  • Differential signaling eliminates ground loops and noise.
  • For extensions up to 300 feet (91.4 m), a single power supply (included) is all you need.
  • Supports a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1440 noninterlaced at 60 Hz and HDTV at 60 Hz to 1080p.
  • Compatible with CAT5e or CAT6 cable.
  • This Component Video kit includes (1) transmitter, (1) receiver, (1) power supply, and (2) cables with (1) HD15 male to (3) RCA male connectors.
  • Also available are a VGA kit, splitter/extenders that send one signal to 2, 4, or 8 monitors; a transmitter with a local port; and an extender single-gang wallplate transmitter.

  • Say good-bye to bulky, expensive, and difficult-to-terminate video cable. The BLACK BOX® Mini CAT5 Extender Kit for Component video enables you to use ordinary CAT5 UTP cable to connect video monitors up to 500 feet (152.4 m) from your PC or video source.

    With the kit, you get a single-channel transmitter and a receiver unit, which work together to extend video signals up to 500 feet (152.4 m) over standard CAT5 cable.

    The transmitter-extender combo requires only a single power supply (included), which can be plugged in at either end of the link—whichever side is most convenient for you.

    The kit converts a PC's video signal into a format that can be transmitted over the CAT5 link, then converts it back for connection to your monitor, projector, or other display device. The kit includes a transmitter and receiver, and the cables for connecting Component devices at each end. On the transmitter side, these cables connect to the three RCA connectors of DVD players or other video sources that output Component (RGB, Y-Pb-Pr, or Y-Cb-Cr) video. And, on the receiver side, the cables connect HDTVs, high-end monitors, and other compatible displays. A VGA kit (AC504A) is also available.

    The transmitter amplifies the signal for clean and crisp transmission, and differential signaling eliminates ground loops and noise. In the transmission, there's little or no degradation of video quality. The transmitter handles resolutions up to 1600 x 1200 at any refresh rate.

    You can also transport and install the kit components with ease. Rugged and reliable, the components feature a compact plastic enclosure that can withstand the daily grind and frequent cable changes.

    NOTE: For CAT5 video extensions over 300 feet (91.4 m), you'll need to connect a power supply at both ends. To order a separate power supply for a remote unit, contact our FREE Tech Support.
