Gefen 1000' VGA extension

Gefen today debuted a new extension system that splits one VGA video, distributing it up to 1,000 feet over CAT-5 cabling. The sender/receiver system provides a clean split, according to the company, and allows users to extend two displays up to 1,000 feet. The extension is designed to consolidate the delivery of VGA video signals, and offers resolutions up to 1080p or 1920x1200 for computer displays. Gefen's 2X VGA Extender ($400) is available for pre-order via the company's website as well as resellers.

"Designed for a simple installation, the 2X VGA Extender takes just seconds to install," Gefen said. "The sender unit connects to the VGA source; the receiver connects to both extended displays. The system uses a 5v power supply at the sender's location; no power is needed remotely."

The entire package includes the VGA Extender S Sender Unit, VGA Extender R Receive Unit, one 6-foot VGA cable (male-to-female), and one 5V external power supply.
