Extend Component or VGA video to eight screens over UTP.

Price: $903.90

Sold As is with no warranty.

Product Features

  • Use inexpensive, easy-to-pull CAT5 UTP cable to distribute analog VGA or Component video from a PC or other source to eight displays as far as 500 feet (152.4 m) away.
  • This eight-port splitter/transmitter distributes video plus phantom power to compatible receivers over CAT5, CAT5e, or CAT6 cable.
  • Details

  • Eliminates the need for bulky, expensive multi-coax runs for high-resolution video and audio extension.
  • Converts analog VGA or HDTV Component (YPbPr) video for transmittal across UTP to a remote location, where a compatible receiver converts it back for display.
  • Drives VGA and Component video 500 feet (152.4) over ordinary CAT5 cables.
  • Also capable of extending analog Composite video up to 1200 feet (365.7 m) across longer CAT5 links.
  • Extends VGA/SVGA/XGA/UXGA video as well as RGBS, RGsB (sync on green), or YPbPr video.
  • Handles resolutions up to 1600 x 1200 at any refresh rate.
  • Also has a loop-out HD15 port for plugging in a local monitor.
  • Amplifies video signals for clean transmission and clear remote displays.
  • Differential signaling eliminates noise and ground loops that can inject hum bars into images on a remote screen.
  • For each remote Component screen connection, add a separately sold Component Video Extender Receiver (AC653A).
  • To connect a remote VGA video screen, use our separately sold Mini CAT5 VGA Receiver (AC602A).
  • Supplies phantom power over the interconnecting link to remote receivers*.
  • Features L-shaped rackmounting ears for rack or cabinet installation.
  • Saves you the expense and hassle of pulling Component or VGA cables through walls and having to use boosters to go extra distances.
  • RoHS compliant.

  • * NOTE: The AC654A comes with a power supply, but in applications with video-over-UTP links less than 330 feet (100.6 m), you usually require a power supply at only one end—local or remote, whichever is most convenient for you. This product works with:
  • Component Video Extender Receiver (AC653A)
  • Mini CAT5 VGA Receiver (AC602A)
