CHATWORTH, CA – Who needs messy cables when you can extend video at high resolution of 1280×1024/1080i using wi-fi technology? Gefen today announced the availability of two new Wireless VGA Extenders designed to eliminate the need for cabling. Ideal for rental, staging, presentation, digital signage and residential applications desiring a plug and play method of video extension, the Wireless VGA Extenders come in Long Range and Short Range versions.
The GefenTV Wireless VGA Extender LR delivers video with analog L/R audio up to 100 feet, offering users the ability to tap into multiple wi-fi channels for optimal signal transmission. Equipped with three small antennas on its sender and receiver units, the system is simple to install, with no additional hardware or software needed to configure. The sender unit connects to the video source and the extender connects to the extended display. Both units are powered to ensure a rapid signal delivery with minimal interference.
The GefenTV Wireless VGA Extender SR delivers video with analog L/R audio up to 30 feet in distance. It does not require line of sight transmission and utilizes internal antenna to send and receive video signals.
These two solutions join Gefen’s growing selection of wireless extenders, including two versions for sources and displays using the HDMI format. “At InfoComm in Orlando in June, Gefen plans to introduce a variation of the Wireless VGA Extender,” said Hagai Gefen, President and CEO of Gefen Inc. “The new version is intended for presentations, and allows a completely wireless connection between any laptop computer using the computer’s internal wi-fi technology, and a projector connected to the Gefen receiver.”
Both the GefenTV Wireless VGA LR and SR Extenders are currently available for purchase. Each comes with Gefen’s standard, two-year warranty.
