The ST121UTPMINI Mini VGA Video and Audio Extender over Cat 5 provides a complete high resolution point-to-point digital signage solution, comprised of one local transmitter and one remote receiver.
Simply connect the local (transmitter) unit to the VGA video and audio source, and the remote unit to a VGA display up to 90 meters (295 feet) away. To start extending the VGA and audio signal, create a point-to-point connection by using Cat 5 / Cat 6 UTP cable.
The Cat 5 VGA extender provides a cost-effective way to situate your display as needed, eliminating standard distance limitations for a more effective digital signage configuration. This small form factor extender is compact enough to be tucked away behind the display even when space is limited.
Backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
This review is from: StarTech ST121UTPMINI Mini VGA Video and Audio Extender over Cat5
Pros: These were simple and reliable during the course of the temporary exhibit we used them for. USB power on the transmitter side made cabling cleaner, and having the receiver attached right to the remote display meant less loose stuff to secure to the ceiling.
Cons: I became suspicious that these things presented their own EDID information instead of passing it through from the remote device. I can't say for sure that this is the case because I didn't put enough time into investigating, since it wasn't important for my application.
Other Thoughts: As you can see from the pictures (and is to be expected with this style of extender), the transmitter sticks out quite a bit. Attached to a DVI-I to VGA adapter, the assembly seemed a little wobbly, but that's not this product's fault.
