VGA Balun II

The VideoEase VGA Balun II eliminates costly and bulky VGA cable, allowing a VGA source to be connected to a VGA monitor via one 4-pair Cat 5 unshielded twisted pair (UTP) cable. Used in pairs, the VGA Balun II allows VGA video to be transmitted up to 350ft (107m) via Cat 5 at 800 x 600 resolution.

Product Description

Each VGA connection requires p/n 500040 (33-9601) or 500043 (33-11355) at the source and either p/n 500041 (33-9602) or 500042 (33-9603) at the display.

The VGA Balun II works in conjunction with laptops, PCs, plasmas, CRT, LCD monitors and DLP projectors. Typical applications include digital signage, boardroom systems, classroom video instruction and custom audio- video systems. The product features a “reset” button that may be required when used in conjunction with certain sync-sensitive displays.

Product Reviews

  • "Poor picture quality" by tekaviles on 10/4/2010
    Overall: 1.5 out of 5

    It degraded picture from PC quality to TV quality. Flickering and EMI are viewable. Customer requested to install VGA cabling after testing balun. We used good quality Cat 5e cabling (Mohawk Brand). I do not recommend this product, use detachable VGA cabling (Tripplite or Calrad).
