The Gefen EXT-CAT5-7500HD KVM extender sends two digital video displays plus accompanying peripherals away from the computer so you can operate in silence or locate your CPU in a separate and secure location. It supports two DVI displays, four USB devices and/or PS/2 keyboard/mouse, RS-232 for serial communication systems, two audio devices and an additional microphone port. Industry standard CAT-5e cables are used to connect your computer to the remote devices at distances up to 200 feet. High definition digital resolutions up to 1920x1200 are supported.

*Note: For distances over 100 ft. shielded CAT-5e cables are recommended for optimal video quality.
