The IPUSB2VGA Ethernet to VGA over IP Converter provides versatile VGA video distribution by extending a VGA signal over Ethernet cable, for transmission between a PC and VGA projector or display.
This innovative VGA-to-LAN adapter can be used to extend a VGA video signal over Ethernet cable for long-distance video connections straight from the computer LAN/Ethernet port – an ideal solution for boardroom presentations or simple digital signage over IP applications. The VGA IP extender can be connected through a router/switch, to any computer on the network, with the included software. The device supports a transmission distance of up to 100 meters (300 feet), to deliver audio and video over a Gigabit network at USB transfer speeds.
For shorter distance connections, the VGA over network device can also be connected to the video source computer through USB, and connected to a monitor through the adapter VGA output.
This versatile VGA-to-LAN converter can also function as a network docking station, with support for audio from the PC and USB devices (e.g. keyboard and mouse on the projector or display side).
Pros: Well, it's really neat. It, in theory, allows remote monitoring of a machine, which is what I was trying to use it for. We have metrics for our Cisco ACD displayed on a big monitor and we wanted to move the computer.
Cons: The cons are, it doesn't really work well. It's flaky, even on an enterprise network. It doesn't run as a service, which means that if you reboot the computer, you have to go to the computer, log in, start the software, then you can use the remote KVM functionality... Stability issues caused us to reboot it 2 or 3 times a day for a few days, and then I sent it back.
Other Thoughts: Machines tested were WinXP and Win7.

Good product but fell short for my application
Pros: Don't let the 3-egg review turn you away. I rated it based on my use, sending videos from the computer to a TV with a VGA input. If your needs don't include smooth motion, it's a 5-egg product. I possibly could have got there eventually, but trying was just taking up too much time.
Cons: - Bringing your Windows installation up to the product requirements can be difficult and time consuming.
Other Thoughts: When first installed, I had a great quality remote picture but a horrible frame rate, ~2 frames/sec. Spending a couple hours reading online support info yielded things to try. The first was to update the ATI/AMD video driver. The new driver is a 45 meg download (!) and I blew an hour or two getting it set up. Not Startech's fault, but still part of setting up the adapter. The next thing was converting to Aero themes, which I strongly dislike. I set up a new Win user for this and replicated my user environment. Another few hours hosed. At this point the frame rate was significantly improved, maybe doubled to 4 frames/sec. I went from a wireless to a wired connection on the computer and got close to 10 frames/sec. Maybe a better network setup would do the trick. The previous review reported smooth video. But at this point I had put in all the time I was willing to and switched to a vga-over-cat5 solution. The picture is not as good but still ok, with no motion issues.

Pros: Originally intended for controlling projectors etc for remote operation of presentations in conference rooms.
Cons: USBs do not allow a hub to be used. You get only two ports and a display and sound.
Other Thoughts: The software for this device seems to be compatible with Startech's USB1000ip device, which is a single USB server. So you can get around the number of usb ports by spending $$. I have one and it works.
