This VGA Video Receiver Wall Plate can be used with StarTech.com's STUTP series of VGA over Cat5 extenders, allowing you to make out-of-the-way connections from a VGA video source to a remote VGA monitor. The receiver wall plate can be placed in a wall or ceiling gang for a cleaner, more professional VGA installation, supporting a connection distance up to a maximum of 300m (950ft) from the transmitter unit (not included).
Offering maximum versatility and convenience, the VGA wall plate is easy to install; simply wallmount the receiver unit near the intended VGA monitor, then connect the receiver to the corresponding transmitter unit. The VGA transmitter and receiver units can then be linked using standard Cat5e or Cat6 cable, providing a high quality video extension while concealing the cable for neater installation.
The VGA receiver wall plate uses a 12V DC terminal block connector behind the unit that offers a clutter-free installation; using Cat5/Cat6 cable to extend the VGA signal offers a cost-effective solution based on the broad availability of networking cable which is far more flexible than VGA cable, not to mention less expensive.
Unlike some video extension systems, our VGA extender wall plates also allow you to make use of an existing networking cable (Cat5, Cat6) infrastructure, eliminating the need to re-run cable in the event of an upgrade from VGA to another video standard, by simply swapping out the wall plates.
