The B160-100-VSI VGA Audio + Video over IP Extender Receiver works with a Tripp Lite B160-Series transmitter (sold separately) to extend and distribute VGA audio + video, RS-232 serial and IR (infrared) remote signals from the source to the display loc ated up to 100 meters away, which is more than 60.96 m farther than a traditional Cat5e/6 solution. By adding a chain of low-cost unmanaged network switches, such as Tripp Lite’s NG5, you can continue extending the distance between source and display u p to 100 m per switch.
Create a multi-in, multi-out installation with up to 64 transmitters and 255 receivers by connecting dedicated managed Ethernet network switches with Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP), such as Tripp Lite’s NSS-G16D2. With a compatible B160-Series transmitter, this receiver works with any analog or digital source, including HDMI and DisplayPort, allowing you to mix and match technologies and use existing source devices. An IGMP-enabled switch will let you manage all con nections for centralized control over which sources show on which displays.
The B160-100-VSI supports video resolutions up to 1920 x 1440, including 1080p. It extends IR control signals that control a source, such as a Blu-ray player, from a remote dis play, as well as RS-232 signals at serial baud rates up to 57600 Bps. It mounts to a wall, rack or pole using the included hardware.
Unmanaged switch installations are limited to two transmitter units. Number of receivers is limited to number of ports remaining on unmanaged switch.
B160-Series designed for use with dedicated network switch. Connecting to a switch used with other networking equipment will result in degraded or non-functional performance.
