Introduction
This Avenview SW-VGA-5X5 receives and amplifies up to 5 VGA inputs, perfectly switches the desired input to
the VGA equipped monitor or receiver. This matrix enables the broadcast of multiple computers’ audio and
video outputs to multiple displays. Any one of the inputs can be broadcasted to any or all of the outputs
without introducing noticeable video quality distortion. The matrix supports VGA video bandwidth up to
400MHz and also supports YPbPr component, S-Video, and Composite signals. The re-transmitted video
quality is guaranteed and the longest transmission is up to 65 meters (210 feet). Therefore, SW-VGA-5X5
offers the most convenient and cost effective means for swift switch of high quality PC graphics and HDTV
videos with crystal clear audio in the market. With equipped audio matrix, SW-VGA-5X5 is ready to be as
