VGA Extender Cat5 VGA Splitter VGA Distributor
VGA Splitters Extenders Passive Baluns Active Amplifiers for transmission of
VGA & Component-Video over Cat5 Twisted Pair Cable up to 300 metres.

 
Use existing (or easily install) Network Cabling in Homes & Businesses to cost effectively extend VGA signals from
Digital Video Recorders, Computers (PC & Apple) & Component-Video signals (
YUV RGB YCbCr YPbPr) up to 135 metres (BalUn) & up to 300 metres (Active VGA Amplifier Extender Distributor). Split signals up to five ways & distribute to multiple areas, eliminate the cost & difficulty associated with cumbersome inflexible Coaxial Cable.

These passive (unpowered) and Amplified devices are suitable for use with common flexible small diameter inexpensive Cat5 Twisted Pair Local Area Network Cable.

For use with VGA-Dist4+1 (above) and in situations where Skew is a severe problem, simply replace VGA-RX included in above with this device to reduce/eliminate severe Skew.
 
Also suitable for use in pairs (Daisy-Chained) to extend VGA transmission distance beyond 300 metres.

 
Ideal for situations where Cat5e, Cat6 & other Low-Crosstalk Cabling has already been been installed, low crosstalk TP is fine for a LAN but causes & exacerbates Skew when used for transmission of VGA signals. Crosstalk reduction in Cat-5e & Cat-6 is achieved in part by deliberately twisting the individual pairs in a 4 pair Cable at different rates to reduce coupling, the consequence of this is that pair lengths are unequal causing Skew.

Results may vary depending on:

Resolution/Refresh rate, Cable-Length and Cable characteristics.

Output level of Source device (PC, DVR) and input sensitivity of Receiving device (Monitor).

&

In particular the length of RGB pairs, variations may cause Skew that will become more evident as Cable-Length, Resolution and Refresh rate are increased, Skew-Correct can be used to reduce/eliminate Skew.

Some brands/models of Monitors are very sensitive to sync levels and may function poorly.

Skew
If all three RGB Pairs are of equal length Skew will not occur, however in practice the number of Twists in each Pair does vary, this variation affects the timing of the signals arriving at the Receiver resulting in a horizontal displacement of the Red Green Blue images on the Monitor.
VGA Skew corrector

Skew increases with Cable Length, Resolution and Refresh rate, reducing these will reduce Skew, in most situations Skew-Correct or VGAskewRX will eliminate or significantly reduce Skew.
