The B160-001-VSI VGA Video + Audio with RS-232 Serial and IR Control over IP Transmitter extends and distributes VGA video + audio, RS-232 serial and IR (infrared) remote signals through a dedicated Ethernet network switch located up to 328 feet (100 m) away. With an additional 328 feet between the switch and the receiver (sold separately), the total maximum distance from source to display is 656 feet (200 m).

Designed for managed network switches with IGMP, which allow login and remote management via switch interface, the B160-001-VSI displays a single source on a single display or distributes a single signal to multiple displays. You can connect up to 64 transmitters and 255 receivers in a single managed switch installation.

The B160-001-VSI supports video resolutions up to 1920 x 1440, including 1080p, though it's limited to the maximum resolution of the receiver (sold separately). You can send the video source to any analog or digital display, including HDMI and VGA. It extends IR control signals that control a source, such as a Blu-ray™ player, from a remote display, as well as RS-232 signals at serial baud rates up to 57600 Bps.
