The Gefen GTV-MFDA-148 is a The GefenTV 1:8 Multi-Format Distribution over Ethernet allows VGA, component, composite, and S-Video plus audio, to be distributed to many receivers. This versatile product is useful for digital signage applications, or educational institutions. The video/audio works in broadcast mode from the sender to all 8 ports simultaneously. The receiver's 2-port switch/hub can be daisy-chained. Additional features of this product allow the facility of audio-video distribution over a local area network's infrastructure.

How It Works
Connect the A/V source into the sender inputs. Connect up to eight receivers if the connection is directly between send and receive units. Another connection concept may be to connect one CAT-5 on the sender side to the network infrastructure. In that configuration the receivers will be connected to the network as well. So, if a PC is connected to the network, then a second RJ45 needs to be connected into the receiver as well. The video output from the receiver should be connected to a display. Power up and the signal is passed directly to all outputs connected.

Note: The highest resolution for this product is 720p or 1280x1024. The recommended length of CAT-5 cable when connected directly between Sender and Receiver is 330ft (100m)
