Audio/Video Matrix Switch with Direct VGA In & CAT5 Out
SM-16X16-C5AVR-LCD (Front & Back)
  • HDMI Extender for use with Digital Signage
  • Designed and Manufactured in the U.S.A.

The VEEMUX® Audio/Video Matrix Switch with Direct-Connect VGA Inputs and CAT5 RJ45 Outputs routes audio/video signals from many computers to multiple displays (projectors, LCD/plasma monitors, etc.) and speakers. It is capable of connecting to as many as 16 audio/video sources directly and 16 video displays via receivers with a maximum extension of 600 feet from the switch using CAT5/5e/6 cable.

A single audio/video output can be routed to one or more destinations. Each image will be as crisp and clear as if directly connected to the original source. Buffered video outputs and digital transmission of audio signals ensures integrity is maintained throughout the system.
