StarTech Increases VGA Extender Line, a Groveport, Ohio-based manufacturer of A/V and digital signage products, has added three new products to its Converge A/V UPTE series of VGA-over-CAT-5 extender devices. These are designed to work a part of an overall system for transmitting VGA signals within a facility.

“One of the main differentiators between our UTPE series of VGA extender wall plates and competitive products is that our wall plates are linked to other extender devices using Cat-5 cable, as opposed to proprietary cabling and connectors” said John Mardinly, product manager for “Cat-5 cable is not only easier to run, but much less costly than proprietary cabling.”

The products include the STUTPTXWAL transmitter wallplate, the STUTPRXWAL receiver wallplate and the STUTPWALL package, which includes both transmitter and receiver wallplates.

The units are designed to transport A/V and digital signage signals at distances of up to 950 feet, and allow installers to completely conceal the CAT-5 cable used for interconnections.
