Overview

The ST1218T 8 Port VGA Video Extender over Cat 5 is designed for use with our ST121 VGA over Cat 5 extension series, offering convenient VGA video distribution at distances of up to 492 feet (150 meters) using standard Cat 5 (or better) cabling.

Comprised of the transmitter unit only, the ST1218T requires one Receiver Unit (ST121R) per display that you are connecting.

For added versatility, the VGA over Cat 5 Repeater (ST121EXT) can be used to extend the distance between the transmitter and receiver by an additional 492-feet (150 meters), for a total distance of 984-feet (300 meters). Similarly, up to 3 repeater units can be used between transmitter and receiver, enabling you to connect monitors at each repeater, while still extending the total distance.

This product is TAA compliant and backed by a Startech.com 2-year warranty with free lifetime technical support.

The StarTech.com Advantage

  • Cat 5 extension enables you to make use of existing Ethernet infrastructure wiring to extend VGA video
  • A pure hardware design provides an easy installation and setup, with no software or drivers required
  • Support for cascading multiple transmitter units, and the use of repeaters for additional distance, providing a scalable system for VGA distribution
