Product ID: IPUSB2VGA2
This VGA over IP extender lets you share a VGA display or projector with the wireless or wired computers on your network. The IP extender makes it easier than ever for users to collaborate and deliver presentations in boardrooms and office meetings, with intuitive controls and effortless screen sharing.
The IP video extender supports resolutions up to 1920x1200 and features two built-in USB ports and 3.5 mm audio set, enabling you to connect remote USB devices and speakers with a microphone to your computer from your display. It’s the perfect solution for controlling a computer from wherever the adapter is located.
The IP video extender helps you boost your office productivity, by making it easier for users to collaborate and communicate. The included software lets you connect multiple computers and easily switch between which user is sharing their content with the VGA display, unlike some wireless video systems that are difficult to configure and require users to disconnect and reconnect manually.
You can even use the video-over-IP extender to share information with a remote audience, such as connecting to a remote display over an office LAN, to hold remote meetings while you're in another part of the office.
With this IP video extender, you can turn your VGA television, monitor or projector into an IP display that can connect to any Windows® computer on your network. It's perfect for conference rooms and classrooms where different ideas are shared by users who bring their own computers.
With a built-in USB hub, you can use your computer to access two remote USB devices at your remote display, enabling you or your customers to control the computer from the remote location. Remote operation can be used to create interactive digital signage, to engage your customers. Or, if you're using the video-over-IP extender as part of your IT infrastructure, you can use the USB extender to add a remote KVM console that you can use to control your server from a remote location.
The IPUSB2VGA2 is TAA compliant and backed by a 2-year StarTech.com warranty with free lifetime technical support.

Computers running macOS Catalina (10.15) may experience compatibility issues with products that use DisplayLink technology, such as USB Docking Stations and Video Adapters. Connecting to a DisplayLink-powered Product may cause the Display(s) to output a blank screen. If you experience this problem, follow these steps:
The problem is usually a bad quality or damaged VGA cable on either end of the extender set. Try replacing the VGA cable with a higher quality cable like StarTech.com’s MXT101MMHQ.
When you troubleshoot issues with a video extender, 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 and Ethernet cables
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 extender, you should use an HDMI source when you test the components.
To test your setup components, try the following:
Use the cable, video extender, 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 extender, 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 extender from your setup and test to make sure that the video source and video destination work together without the video extender.
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, extender, and destination all need to support the resolution that you are using.
If the IP extender detects that it does not have the necessary bandwidth to function, it may disconnect from the network. It is recommended that you use the IP extender with a switch or router with no other networking devices connected to it.
If the IP extender outputs video at 1920x1080, it can use up to 136Mbps. If the IP extender outputs video at 1920x1080 and remote USB devices are connected it, the IP extender can use up to 275Mbps.
Make sure that your network can support the bandwidth required by the IP extender.
