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.

Streamline your digital collaboration

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.

Bring your own device

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.

Extend two USB devices at your display

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.

Applications

  • Create a remote KVM console that you can use to control your server from a remote location
  • Install in your office boardroom, to enable your employees or co-workers to share each other's screens on a larger display
  • Share information with clients at doctors offices and hospitals, while keeping the computer in a remote, secure location

Frequently Asked Questions

Troubleshooting

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:

  1. Update computer to the latest version of macOS 10.15
  2. Permit Screen Recording by following these steps: macOS Catalina 10.15: Screen Recording permission (external link)
  3. Enable the DisplayLink Kernel Extension by following these steps: macOS 10.13, 10.14 and 10.15: Video functionality not enabled (external link)
  4. If the problem persists, try installing the DisplayLink Manager Application (external link). Be sure to run the application after installation and select “Launch automatically after logging-in” for it to start automatically every time you log-in.
  1. The power adapter may not be connected at the correct unit or may not be connected at all.  Please check your product manual to see where your power adapter has to be positioned.
  2. An adapter to another video signal may be connected to the Transmitter or Receiver unit.  Please avoid any converters for the initial setup.
  3. The Cat 5 or 6 cable coming from the transmitter or receiver unit may be connected to a network switch.  Some of our video extenders will work in this configuration, but others will not. Please check your product manual to see if your model can be used connected to an IP network. For the initial setup, avoid connecting the Cat 5 or 6 cables to any network switch, hub, or router.
  4. The category of Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) cables may not meet StarTech.com’s requirements. Ensure at least Cat 5, 5e, or six cables are used, and they have eight wires. Some Cat 5 cables only have four wires. If using Cat 6 cables, be aware they have more twists per foot, so you may have to use shorter cable lengths if using Cat 6 cabling between your video extenders.
  5. Bundling up the UTP cabling connected to the extenders can cause crosstalk, which will prevent the video signal from showing on the display.  Unwrapping the cable should resolve this issue.
  1. Please check to see if your model has an adjustable Gain dial on the remote unit.
  2. If it does, use it to adjust the color until it is acceptable.
  3. Replace the VGA cable with a higher quality cable like StarTech.com’s MXT101MMHQ.

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 extender

  • 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.

Haven't got 1 to work yet

By: WadeK - 04/13/2017
The first unit never even showed on the software. Tech support sent another unit, it showed on the software until trying to config, then never came to life again.

This is a remote display, not KVM over IP

By: bofh - 07/30/2017
Think of this as USB to VGA adapter, with option to work over IP. It adds a second monitor to a computer that has the driver installed. It is not a KVM that works over the network.

Thanks for sharing your review of our IPUSB2VGA2. We're sorry for any confusion regarding this unit's functionality. You're right this unit is not a KVM over IP product. Please consider our IP KVM solutions found here: https://www.startech.com/Server-Management/KVM-Switches/?filter_KVMIPCONTROL=Yes Thank you.

Works well, be sure to update the firmware!

By: Techie92 - 10/19/2018
I mostly have the older v1 version of this product, but the USB Server portion is the same on both products. Be aware that these ship with an obsolete and unstable firmware version and PC application included. My recommendation is to update the firmware as soon as you get it, and don't use the software that StarTech supplies. Both are *ancient*. The firmware for these can be found if you search for "Elite Silicon Technology Taiwan" (the chipmaker that produces the USB Server components). You need Firmware v068 to fix the stability issues. I used to have to power cycle these boxes all the time, now I haven't had to touch one in over a year. Be sure to download the newer version of the USB Server application too. Grab the DisplayLink driver from Displaylink's website. Once you update the units, these work great. The software is a bit clunky if you have a lot of them since you can't sort by device name, but otherwise it seems to work well. I can show movies on the remote display without issue, and we also run interactive whiteboards and presentations on connected displays and projectors.

Rock solid for almost 2 years

By: Cookie - 09/09/2019
Got this almost 2 years ago to share a display and it's been going 24/7/365 since. Streamcast software is easy to use and worked fine when we were broadcasting to web as well
