VGA/Audio/RS-232 Cat 5 Extender with Auto Compensation
VE500
The VE500 A/V Over Cat 5 Extender allows you to extend the distance between a computer system unit and the display monitor by up to 1600x1200@500 feet (150m) (VE500R) and 1280x1024@1000 feet (300m) (VE500RQ). It accomplishes this by means of a local transmitting unit (VE500T), and a remote receiving unit (VE500R/VE500RQ), connected by Cat 5e twisted pair cable.
The VE500 A/V Over Cat 5 Extender is ideal for installations where the display needs to reside in public view, but the system equipment can be safely tucked away. The VE500 system is also useful for control and security purposes, where you can have the system unit in a secure area while the display is located in an area that is convenient for viewing.
The VE500RQ also supports RGB delay tuner to manually synchronize the RGB signals. This allows users to deploy system equipment over large distances. The VE500RQ’s line synchronizing function corrects color phase and timing errors that occur over long distance transmissions. It also enables you to manually tune the R/G/B signal settings.
