VGA Splitter also referred to as Video splitter, distribution amplifier, VGA monitor splitter or screen splitter, can route a VGA signal to up to sixteen different display devices. These splitters are used to display the same image simultaneously on multiple monitors located throughout your facility.

In addition to routing video remotely the video splitter also has the option to support local video. An advantage of using these devices is that there is no compromise of image quality as splitter units amplify each video signal and deliver crisp and clear pictures that support VGA, SVGA, UXGA, SXGA, XGA, and VGA resolutions up to 1920 x 1440 @ 60 Hz. VGA Cables are used to connect the Video splitter to the VGA inputs and outputs of your source and displays. PC's, SUN's and MAC's with VGA video are all supported by these 350 MHz bandwidth splitters. Another key feature of this device is that it can be cascaded with additional units to display the same image on up to 100 monitors. The VGA splitter is available with 2, 4, 8 and 16 ports. The DDC, DDC2, as well as the DDC2B protocol is supported by these units. They are easy to install and do not require any additional software.

DVI splitters, quad video splitters, component video splitter, HDMI splitter, s- video splitters are all types of video splitters available in the market. However, the VGA video splitter is one of the most common splitter devices. Cat5 splitter extenders utilize Cat5, Cat5e and Cat6 UTP cables to transmit video signals much longer distances that VGA cables allow. These splitter extenders consist of two units, a transmitter and a receiver. The VGA Splitter is also available with an audio option and they are known as audio video splitters.

In situations wherein people require high quality video to be displayed on several output devices, VGA splitters can be put to optimum use. Hence, these devices are increasingly being used in business presentations, multimedia displays, educational facilities, video broadcasting, remote monitoring, conference rooms, bars, hotels, casinos, and SOHO applications.
