Introduction
With only one cost effective CAT-5e cable, the Avenview VGA-C5R-SET lets you extend VGA (WUXGA) to cover
the distance up to 300m (1,000ft). The system consists of both Transmitter (VGA-C5R-S) and Receiver
(VGA-C5R-R). With built-in EQ and GAIN control, the transmission path can be adjusted to adapt the cable
quality and video bandwidth. Furthermore, the VGA RGB delay control [de-skew] function provides the
compensation among R, G, B signals due to long transmission or through normal LAN cable.
-
Supports up to WUXGA [1920x1200@60] or UXGA [1600x1200@60] to 300m (1,000ft)
Adjustable equalization and gain control on Receiver unit
De-skew compensation available for RGB delay control
Wall mounting case for better fixedness

Before Installation
Put the product in an even and stable location. If the product falls down or drops, it may cause an
injury or malfunction.
Don’t place the product in too high temperature (over 50°C), too low temperature (under 0°C) or high
humidity.
Use the DC power adapter with correct specifications. If inappropriate power supply is used then it
may cause a fire.
Do not twist or pull by force ends of the optical cable. It can cause malfunction.

2.
Connect VGA source to VGA-C5R-S
Connect VGA display to VGA-C5R-R
Connect CAT5/CAT6 cable between Transmitter (VGA-C5R-S) and Receiver (VGA-C5R-R)
Ensure that cables are tightly connected
Plug in 5V DC power cord to the power jack of the Receiver VGA-C5R-R.
Plug in 5V DC power cord to the power jack of the Transmitter VGA-C5R-S.
If a blurred video is seen or even worse, not displayed at all, try to adjust the EQ and Gain
rotary controls to improve the cable skew. GAIN rotary controls are designed for gain control,
and EQ rotary controls are designed for equalizing the wave form of the receiving video signal.
It is suggested to begin with adjusting the rotary control of EQ to get the input video displayed
first, and then the GAIN according to the video you see on the screen.
RGB delay control [De-skew] offers the flexible functionality to allow skew compensation
among VGA R, G, B signals due to long transmission or thru low quality cable. By adjusting the
rotary switch to choose R, G or B color channel at first, then use the push buttons to increase or
decrease the delay in the corresponding color channel. There are totally 31 steps, each step
with 2ns difference, for adjusting the delay between each color individually. Then the graphics
quality can be further assured.

Notice
1. All transmission distances are measured using Belden 1583A CAT-5e 125MHz LAN cable and
STRODESIGN Video Signal Generator VG-859C. The transmission distance is defined as the
distance between the video source and the VGA display.
2. The transmission length is largely affected by the type of LAN cables, the type of video sources, and
the type of display. The testing result shows solid LAN cables (usually in bulk cable 300m or
1000ft form) can transmit a lot longer signals than stranded LAN cables (usually in patch cord
form). Shielded STP cables are better suit than unshielded UTP cables. A solid UTP CAT5e cable
shows longer transmission length than stranded STP CAT6 cable. For long extension users, solid
cables are your only choice.
3. To reduce the interference among the unshielded twisted pairs of wires in LAN cable, you can use
shielded LAN cables to improve EMI problems, which is worsen in long transmission.
4. Because the quality of the LAN cables has the major effects in how long transmission distance will
be made and how good is the received display, the actual transmission length is subject to your
LAN cables. For resolution greater than 1080i or 1280x1024, a CAT-6 cable is recommended..
