Groveport, OH (September 18th, 2008) - StarTech.com (www.startech.com), a leading manufacturer of A/V and digital signage connectivity solutions, has launched four new products in its Converge A/V line, designed to work as part of an overall system of extending and splitting VGA video as well as the corresponding audio, from a single source, using a single Cat 5 cable between the transmitting and receiving units to each display.

Intended to provide A/V and digital signage specialists with a convenient way to narrowcast VGA and audio content to remote locations at distances of up to 300m / 950’, the VGA extension system also eliminates cost and reduces cable clutter by using Cat 5 Cables

“The popularity of VGA Cat 5 extension products has increased significantly over the past few years as it is a cost-effective and simple method for video distribution and digital signage applications” says John Mardinly, Product Manager for StarTech.com. “The need for a VGA and audio Cat 5 extender was clear, and we decided to launch a four port, 8 port, long range receiver and a line splitter. The line splitter allows up to 16 displays for the 4 port model, and 32 displays on the 8 port model”.
