It supports multiple input/output formats including component, S-Video, composite video, VGA computer video, RS-232 control, and stereo audio.
The Avocent MS1000P Cat5 is a point-to point video extension and the MS1000MP Cat5 is a point-to-multipoint video extension; both are WXGA-compatible and extend VGA up to 500ft. The products are rackmountable and easily installed. The MS1000P Cat5 and the MS1000MP Cat5 support multiple input/output formats, automatic input/output detection, and RS-232.
