Expandable 8 input port VGA, component AV, and RS-232 signal matrix with extension up to 1,000 feet via CAT5 cabling.

CATSwitch routes audio and video signals from several different video sources out to multiple displays (projectors, monitors, etc.) and speakers via inexpensive Cat5/6 UTP cable. CATSwitch is capable of connecting to as many as 16 video sources via transmitters and 16 video displays via receivers with a maximum extension of 1,000 feet between the transmitter and receiver units. A single audio/video output can be routed to one or multiple destinations. Video is transmitted at a resolution of 1920 x 1200 to insure high resolution images. Buffered video outputs and analog delivery of stereo audio maintains optimum integrity throughout the system. Special remote boxes offer compatibility with Video Composite , UXGA, Component Video and S-Video. Features:
  • Supports high resolution video up to 1920x1200.
  • High quality audio switching.
