The ST222MXA 2x2 VGA Matrix Switcher/Splitter allows you to share 2 distinct VGA inputs (as well as a corresponding audio source), between 2 independent displays or projectors.

Providing convenient push-button control, the VGA Matrix Switcher/Splitter allows each of the 2 input VGA signals and the corresponding audio, to be switched individually - meaning that you can have a different source showing on each display, or one source showing on both, offering maximum flexibility and control.

To ensure optimized VGA distribution and signal management over longer distance signal transmissions, the ST222MXA VGA Matrix Switch features a built-in signal booster that facilitates installation of displays at distances of up to 213-feet (65 meters) away from the source device, while maintaining flawless signal integrity.

Backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Applications

  • Take full control of your sources and displays/projectors - select any source on any display
  • ideal for connecting/switching multiple sources in Test Bench Facilities, Data Centers, Help Desks and Video Broadcasting Facilities
  • Run multimedia presentations with supporting data showing on another display in business conference rooms or at trade-shows
  • Perfect for digital signage applications in retail environments requiring more than one media player or PC to be connected
  • Allow trainees/students to see what is on your display and then switch them back to their own display after the demonstration completes

The StarTech.com Advantage

  • Matrix switching lets you use the device as a video splitter or switch with the ability to toggle on/off signals, giving you full control of screen content
  • Built-in signal amplifier lets you extend your connection by up to 210 feet

Frequently Asked Questions

Troubleshooting

When you troubleshoot issues with a video splitter, there are some quick tests that you can complete to rule out potential problems. You can test to make sure that the following components are working correctly and are not the source of the issue:

  • Video cables

  • Video switch

  • Video source (such as a DVD player or computer)

  • Video destination (such as a monitor or projector)

Note: When you are testing setup components, you should avoid using video adapters. For example, if you are converting a VGA source to HDMI for use with an HDMI switch, you should use an HDMI source when you test the components.

To test your setup components, try the following:

  • Use the cable, video switch, video source, and video destination in another setup to see if the problem is with the components or the setup.

  • Use a different cable, video switch, video source, and video destination in your setup to see if the problem persists. Ideally, you should test a component that you know works in another setup.

When you test your cables, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • Test each cable individually.

  • Use short cables when you are testing.

When you test the video source and video destination, it is recommended that you do the following:

  • Remove the video switch from your setup and test to make sure that the video source and video destination work together without the video switch.

  • Test to make sure that the video source and video destination work together at the resolution that you want to use.

Note: In order for your setup to work properly, the video source, switch, and destination all need to support the resolution that you are using.

Before You Buy

This device outputs a VGA signal. If you have a display or video destination that uses another type of video connection, there are ways that you can convert the video signal or connection. These options are outlined below and organized by the target connection.

Target connection First conversion Second conversion (if required)
DVI-D VGA to HDMI: https://www.startech.com/AV/Converters/Video/?filter_AVINPUT=VGA&filter_AVOUTPUT=HDMI. HDMI to DVI-D: https://www.startech.com/AV/Converters/Video/?filter_AVINPUT=VGA&filter_AVOUTPUT=HDMI.
DVI-I VGA to DVI-I: https://www.startech.com/Cables/Audio-Video/Video-Adapter/DVIVGA/. N/A
HDMI

VGA to HDMI: https://www.startech.com/AV/Converters/Video/?filter_AVINPUT=VGA&filter_AVOUTPUT=HDMI.

N/A
DisplayPort VGA to HDMI: https://www.startech.com/AV/Converters/Video/?filter_AVINPUT=VGA&filter_AVOUTPUT=HDMI. HDMI to DisplayPort: https://www.startech.com/AV/Converters/Video/?filter_AVINPUT=HDMI&filter_AVOUTPUT=DisplayPort.

Note: You might need to use more than one converter as part of your solution; however, you should try to use the least number of converters and cables to connect your source and destination. If you have the option to convert to multiple target video connections, choose the option that requires the fewest number of conversions.

DVI-I and DVI-D

When you convert from VGA to DVI, you need to know if you are converting to a DVI-I or a DVI-D connection. For more information about how to identify the type of connection that you need, refer to the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/video_signal_converters_dvi_interface.

You also need to know which form of DVI that you are using, because DVI-I supports both analog (VGA) and digital (HDMI) signals, while DVI-D only supports digital (HDMI) signals.  

Note: Certain devices may have a DVI-I connection but only support DVI-D signaling. It is important to verify that your DVI-I device supports DVI-I signaling.

This device has a VGA input port.  If you have a video source that uses another video connection, there are options available to convert the video signal or connection. These options will be outlined below for each video source connection.
