Description
The Models 200, 400 and 800 are VGA video splitters that employ the latest technologies in
high-resolution video distribution. The devices are compact, lightweight, low power, and highly
reliable. The splitters terminate, buffer and amplify the computer's video signal with widebandwidth integrated circuits for display on multiple monitors. Depending on the length of the
cable used, each output can reproduce a sharp and crisp image at any resolution up to 1920
x 1440.
The Splitters are capable of driving video extension cables to 150 feet or more depending on
the resolution being displayed. Included with the device are a small power adapter and a 6 ft
multi-coaxial cable for connection to the PC’s video.

Setup
This section gives you setup information on the Model 200, 400, and 800 video splitters. Your
package should include a six foot VGA-Type video cable, a power adapter, and the Video
Splitter unit itself. Please take inventory of all items received and ensure that you have the
above items.
Locate the Video output connector on the Computer. This connector is generally a HD15
female with three rows of contacts. Using the cable supplied, connect the input of the Splitter
to the computer.
Connect the monitors directly to the outputs of the Splitter, or use high-quality extension
cables to remotely locate the monitors. Connect the supplied AC power adapter to the Splitter
and plug it in the AC source.
Do Not Substitute Any Other DC Power Source (See Specifications for Details)
If you are using long video cables (greater than 25 feet) on the output of the splitter, it is best
to ensure that the cable is connected to a monitor (which properly terminates the signals),
otherwise disconnect the cable from the Splitter.
The Splitters are cascadable (i.e. connected in series) to provide large number of outputs if
desired.
Standard Splitters can drive 150 feet of video cable without appreciable loss of resolution. For
longer runs, Model 400-DX or VGA-to-CAT5 converters are recommended.

Plug-and-Play
DDC (Direct Data Channel) is a standard by which a compatible monitor sends its
identification and other parameters to a PnP operating system such as Windows 98 etc. Only
one of the monitors connected to the splitter is allowed to communicate with the operating
system. This means that the user should ensure that either all the monitors can support the
resolution which will be set or disable the DDC and force any desired resolution and refresh
rate from the “Display Properties” screen of the operating system. If upon connecting the
Splitter you get a blank screen, it could be that your PC is looking for a monitor but cannot find
any. In this case, either plug a monitor directly to the PC and disable PnP (by choosing a
different standard-type monitor), or have at least one monitor plugged in to the specific output
of the splitter that is assigned to the DDC channel (see Specifications for details).

Power Requirements:
The splitters rely on the AC power adapter, which is supplied with the unit. The adapters
generate 6V DC power for the device. If you intend to use a different external DC power
supply, the splitters may not function properly.
Hall Research manufactures Splitters that can operate from customer supplied external DC
power supplies from 5 v to 24 v DC. Please contact factory or your distributor for details and
pricing information.
