CrystalView CAT5 USB KVM Extender Advantages:
The CrystalView CAT5 USB is the KVM extender of choice for businesses that need to extend and operate a USB computer, server, or KVM switch from a great distance. The CrystalView CAT5 USB makes this possible by the use of standard CAT5 cable. You can fully operate and control a USB computer or server from as far away as 1,000 feet using standard CAT5 cable.  The CrystalView CAT5 USB supports all analog VGA video.  The CrystalView CAT5 USB allows you to position a CPU up to 1,000 feet away from the KVM station using common twisted pair CAT5 cable. Video equalization and gain controls on the remote unit adjust brightness and clarity to compensate for image quality loss over long cable lengths.

Question: Is this model considering to interconnect both KVM extender modules with UTP cable (2 pieces) ?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. This dual access KVM extender has one remote user station and additional user station ports available at the transmitter for local access to the attached computer.

The receiver itself and the transmitter are connected together via a single CAT5 UTP cable.

Question: If there are 2 UTP cables between KVM stations, the 1000 feet are for each of the cables or for the sum of both lengths?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. This particular dual access KVM extender kit will have a single remote KVM station as well as KVM ports on the local transmitter. The remote user station can reach out to the full 1000 feet (dependent on environmental factors).

If you need two remote user stations, you may be interested in looking at the Rose Multi-station Extender.
