July 29, 2008
Hub supports plug-and-play and remote power pass-thru

MuxLab, designer and manufacturer of security video and audio-video connectivity solutions for copper twisted pair, announces its latest addition to its AV connectivity portfolio…The VGA 1x4 Hub (500150).

Developed for the commercial PC/server market, the VGA 1x4 Hub allows one (1) VGA (RGBHV) source to be distributed to up to four (4) displays via Cat5E/6 cable for more cost-efficient cabling. The hub works in conjunction with the Active VGA Balun II Kit (500140) and Active VGA Balun II Receivers (500142). At least one (1) 500140 is required to support one (1) display. Up to three (3) additional 500142 may be added to support up to three (3) additional displays.

The VGA 1x4 Hub is DDC-compliant for "plug-and-play" installation with laptops, PCs and custom imaging applications. At boot-up, the Active VGA Balun II Kit reads the monitor’s characteristics and allows the VGA source to adjust its video output according to the display monitor’s size and resolution. The product also supports Remote Power Pass-Thru up to 200 ft (61m) for more streamlined installation where additional AC power sources are not available at the monitor.

The hub may be installed anywhere between the Active VGA Balun II Transmitter and Receiver within the maximum distance specifications of the Active VGA Balun II Kit. Additionally the product also supports component video (RGB/YpbPr) when used with the appropriate VGA-to-RGB cable assemblies (not included).

The VGA 1x4 Hub streamlines cabling in applications such as: digital signage, medical imaging, video walls, classroom training and boardroom projection systems. For more information, please visit the MuxLab website ( or contact MuxLab at +1 514-905-0588, or [email protected].
