Groveport, OH – StarTech.com, a leading manufacturer of hard-to-find connectivity and technology parts has announced the release of the DS Series Digital Signage Broadcaster (DS128) and Digital Signage Receiver (DSRXL), which can be used to extend high resolution VGA video and stereo audio over Cat5 Ethernet cable at distances up to 300m (900ft). The broadcaster and receiver also provide centralized operation of connected devices such as A/V receivers and display panels, over a serial connection extended to each monitor/equipment location. The release of the DS Series broadcaster and receiver coincides with and will be on display at InfoComm 2010 Exhibition (June 9-11, 2010).

“The DS Series is the perfect solution for anyone wanting to run VGA video over Cat5 cabling in a digital signage application? said John Mardinly, Product Manager for StarTech.com. “The DS Series offers a Java software utility that allows users to take control of signal distribution, display panels and other connected devices over a serial or LAN connection from any platform (Windows, Mac, Linux). Plus, you can fine tune the image or control audio volume over the RS-232 connection, making it easier to consolidate device control.?

“Used together, the digital signage broadcaster and receiver also offer a very scalable method of distributing audio and video signals? said Mardinly. “Each DSRXL receiver can be daisy chained with up to four additional receivers and provides two VGA ports for additional remote displays. In total, this allows users to connect and control up to 80 monitors from a single location?.
