Black Box ACU5800A DisplayPort Extender, Single-Access, CATx Cables

The Black Box ACU5800A DisplayPort Extender is a high-performance KVM extender that enables you to locate your critical computing hardware in a secure and temperature-controlled environment away from the user workstation while maintaining the same user desktop experience. It can transmit either two 1920 x 1200 video streams or one higher resolution video stream (2560x1600 WQXGA), digital audio (S/PDIF), analog audio, Hi-Speed USB 2.0, and USB 2.0 (full and low speed) over CATx cables.

Perfect Digital Video, Real-Time Control
  • The system is uncompressed, sending every pixel of every frame without loss. The receiver supports DisplayPort Dual Mode (DP++), meaning monitors that only support HDMI or DVI can be used (with the correct adapter cable)
HD-Quality Analog Audio
  • HD-audio quality (stereo channel 24 bit sampled at 96kHz) is available to transfer audio from local to remote for Line In / Line. Headsets with integrated microphones are also supported.
Up to 492 Feet (150 m) Extension Distances
  • Distance is dependent on the monitor resolution, the number of monitors, cable type, and the number of patch panels and couplers.
EDID Management
  • The system has intelligent EDID management to allow the true characteristics of the monitor to be passed back to the computer.
USB 2.0
  • Enables connection of any USB human interface device from mice and keyboards through to graphics tablets, jog wheels, joysticks, and 3D explorers. Mass storage devices and isochronous devices such as webcams and headsets can be used through the transparent USB 2.0 Hi-Speed port.
Digital Audio
  • Supports the S/PDIF interface via an optical 3.5mm jack socket (dual use with analog audio via mini Toslink).
Single CATx Cable
  • Video, USB, and audio all pass along a single cable. A second CATx cable is required for the Hi-Speed USB 2.0 extension and increased video bandwidth.
Plug and Play
  • This extender solution is plug-and-play. There is no need for drivers or software to be installed.
