Product ID: IPUSB2VGAUE
The IPUSB2VGAUE Ethernet to VGA over IP Converter offers versatile VGA video distribution by extending a VGA signal over Ethernet cable, for transmission between a PC and VGA projector or display.
Functioning as an Ethernet VGA over IP converter, 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).

To confirm that the Mac OS detects your USB device, complete the following:
You may need to refresh the System Information page after you plug in your device. To do so, press Command + R with the System Information page open.
Your USB device is listed according to the name of the chipset. To determine the name of the chipset of your USB device, navigate to www.StarTech.com and look on the Technical Specifications tab for your product.
You should only use video converters and extenders if it is absolutely necessary to do so. In many cases, most video converters and extenders are not necessary if you purchase the correct cable.
The following table lists the maximum length of cable for common video standards.
|Video standard||Maximum length|
|DisplayPort||50 ft. (15.2m)|
|HDMI||50 ft. (15.2m)|
|DVI||50 ft. (15.2m)|
|VGA||200 ft. (71m)|
Note: StarTech.com offers cables longer than what is listed above, including active cables, which typically include built-in active signal boosters that allow for longer cables. Active cables are specifically designed to exceed the suggested maximum lengths and are tested at the listed specifications (for example, the maximum listed resolution).
Video adapters passively adapt a cable from one connector type to another. Video adapters do not change the signal type, or change the video standard.
Examples of common applications for adapters include the following:
DVI-I to VGA
RCA to BNC
Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort
Couplers (female to female, or male to male)
Note: You can use a coupler to extend a cable for a short distance. However, each coupler that you use can introduce signal loss, which degrades the signal quality.
Video converters actively process and change the signal type from one video standard and convert it to another standard. They are typically used to convert digital to analog and vice versa, but can be used to convert a digital signal to another digital video standard (for example, HDMI to DisplayPort).
Video converters work over short distances from the source to the destination: up to 15 feet or 3 meters.
Video extenders convert an input signal to a higher voltage for transmission over longer distances and then convert the input signal back to the original video standard. The input and the output signal will match on a video extender, as the same video standard is maintained end-to-end. If a cable is extended with adapters or converters, the signal quality degrades.
