C2G Extends VGA Signals for Digital Signage Applications

VGA Extender Runs VGA and Audio Signals Up to 1000ft Over Cat5 Cable


LAS VEGAS (2009 International CES, Booth 20947) – January 7, 2009C2G, the preferred provider and trusted expert of high performance cabling and connectivity solutions, today announced the TruLink® VGA With Audio Over Cat5 Extender, which extends VGA and audio signals up to 1000 feet over Cat5e cable. For wireless VGA connectivity, the company also announced it is now shipping its CES Innovations 2009 Award–winning Wireless USB to VGA Adapter Kit.

The VGA With Audio Extender is for applications where the VGA monitor needs to be further away than the general 100 foot VGA cable limitation. This includes digital signage installations in areas such as retail outlets, churches, classrooms and boardrooms where the computer is often placed in a different room keeping it secure and out of sight.

The TruLink VGA With Audio Over Cat5 Extender transmits both VGA and 3.5 mm audio signals over a Cat5e Unshielded Twisted Pair (UTP) cable. This also allows organizations to take advantage of their existing UTP cable infrastructure to avoid costly installations and cable runs.

“Both the VGA Extender and the Wireless VGA Adapter add to our extensive line of digital signage products and solutions that give customers an easy installation that is cost–effective and reliable,” said Gary Hess, C2G director of product management. “With the ability to transmit a VGA signal over long distances or through a wireless connection, users have the flexibility to deploy a digital signage solution that fits their specific needs.”

The TruLink Wireless USB to VGA Adapter Kit is a wireless VGA solution for connecting a computer to a monitor or projector. It enables users to wirelessly display video content from a computer to a remote monitor, projector or television up to 30 feet away. It provides a highly secure wireless connection ideal for classroom or conference room presentations or to display content from a laptop to a home entertainment system.

The TruLink Wireless USB to VGA Adapter Kit is now available through C2G partners, and the TruLink VGA With Audio Over Cat5 Extender will be available later in Q1. Both products will be demonstrated at the 2009 International CES in the C2G booth (#20947, South 1 Hall).
