  • Details

    The BLACK BOX® CAT5 Video/RS-232 Extender Kit makes it easy to broadcast a video image on a screen up to 360 feet away or remotely control a video projector that has RS-232 serial connectors. With the kit, it’s simple and straightforward!

    The CAT5 Video/RS-232 Extender Kit has many applications! It's not only ideal for conference room and classroom environments, but it's also great for point-of-sale retail settings. For example, you can use the extenders to connect a plasma screen in a high-traffic area while maintaining control of the on-screen information through a locally attached PC and monitor.

    The system uses bidirectional RS-232 for transmit and receive signals. And because local and remote units use shielded twisted pair for communications, the kit is easy to connect. Plus, there's no extra cable clutter!
