Plug-and-Play Devices Extend Video Signals up to 330 Feet Over a Single Cat 5/6/7 Cable at Resolutions up to 1280×1024
SUNNYVALE, Calif. — May 19, 2011 — Atlona Technologies(R) today introduced new passive wall plate and box-style VGA extenders that send perfect video signals over a single low-cost Cat 5/6/7 cable up to 330 feet at resolutions up to 1280×1024. For simple setup the extenders are plug-and-play solutions, requiring no drivers or software, and do not rely on an external power source. The devices are compatible with any computer, making them the perfect solution for classrooms, offices, data centers, training rooms, and many other use cases in which computers must be located remotely from the user’s display.
Atlona’s VGA extender offering includes the AT-WPVGA-S wall plate extender transmitter and AT-WPVGA-R receiver; the AT-VGA100-S box extender transmitter and AT-VGA100-R receiver; and the AT-VGA100-SR wall plate extender kit, which includes both a transmitter and receiver. The AT-WPVGA-S, AT-WPVGA-R, AT-VGA100-S, and AT-VGA100-R extenders can be mixed and matched with each other, with wall plate transmitters and receivers working with box transmitters and receivers, and vice versa.
“Using our VGA extenders, integrators can provide video signals over very long distances to meet the needs of any application, without compromising on quality. Users won’t be able to tell the difference between our products and a direct connection,” said Steve Heintz, product manager for Atlona’s Si line. “And to save time and money in the field, the devices also dramatically simplify installations by eliminating the need for drivers, software, and power supplies.”
The AT-WPVGA-S, AT-WPVGA-R, AT-VGA100-S, and AT-VGA100-R are available now at an MSRP of $69.99 each, and the AT-VGA100-SR is available now at an MSRP of $139.99.
