The Video Separator is a signal booster and splitter that is used to take video input from a single source and direct it to four video outputs for monitors using analog signals. The signal boost obtained by using the VS-104 allows you to not only split the signal but to extend the distance so that you can send the signal to about 210 feet. This is no mean feat, your average VGA card, over a standard VGA cable, send a clear VGA signal approximately 25 feet. This makes public broadcasts from a single computer very feasible. If you want to display the same information on many monitors at once, such as in a classroom environment, or at a demonstration, this product performs incredibly well.
Bandwidth is the term that is used to describe the signal capacity of these units. In general, bandwidth is directly proportional to the amount of data transmitted per unit of time. Specifically, in analog signals, bandwidth is the difference between the highest-frequency and the lowest frequency components of a givin signal. For example a voice telephone signal has a bandwidth of 3000 Hz (or 3000 cycles per second), where an analog TV signal has a bandwidth of approximately 6MHz (or 6 million cycles per second) which is approximately 2000 times greater than a simple voice phone call. These units have a bandwidth of 250MHz (which is 250 million cycles per second) and that is almost 42 times greater than a simple TV signal. This huge bandwidth allows for the transmission of large amounts of information at a very high rate of speed, and thus you can use the very high resolution setting of 1600 x 1200 in 24 or 32 bit true color mode at a refresh rate of 70Hz.

Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,
If I understood your question correctly: The Aten VS94A is a video splitter - it creates a duplicate signal so you can see the same screen on two monitors. You would not be able to extend the screens into dual-monitor mode, as you would not have two separate outputs plugged into the computer.
Please refer to the Aten VS94A Installation Guide for instructions on setting up the unit (the second section is in Spanish).
