DataPro's VGA Video Extension Cable is exactly that: a cable to extend
an existing VGA video cable. Perfect for CRT monitors with built-in
cords, but also great if you've got an existing VGA run and just need
to get a few more feet on the end, these high-quality cables ensure
the best image fidelity while minimizing noise and signal degredation.
Once the stalwart champion of computer video, VGA has lost its dominant
position to the digital signals of DVI and DisplayPort, but when it comes
to long-range video displays, VGA is still the best. Digital signals can
become unreliable after fifteen feet and rarely work past fifty, but our
valiant VGA assemblies are often run in excess of two hundred feet with minimal
Each end has High-Density 15-pin D-Sub connectors, one male plug (DH15M)
and one female socket (DH15F). Most devices are built with female VGA jacks,
so this cable is almost exclusively used to connect to (and extend) an existing
VGA cable. It is wired straight-through, as is the custom on all VGA cable assemblies.
The extension cable is made of high-grade 75 Ohm
mini-coaxial video wire. This thick, triple-shielded, low-loss
wire is far superior to cheaper stock made from stranded copper,
which is what's typically included with electronics or found in
big-box retail stores.
For monitors without built-in VGA cables, or when a VGA panel or wall-jack
is involved, a male-to-male VGA cable
will connect your source and display directly.
