StarTech.com targets signage with DS Series

StarTech.com says its DS Series Digital Signage Broadcaster (DS128) and Receiver (DSRXL) can extend high-resolution VGA video and stereo audio over Cat5 Ethernet cable at distances up to 300m.

The manufacturer of connectivity and technology parts claims the solution also provides centralised operation of connected devices, such as AV receivers and display panels, over a serial connection extended to each monitor/equipment location.

The DS Series offers a Java software utility and users can fine tune the image or control audio volume over the RS-232 connection.

Each DSRXL receiver can be daisy chained with up to four additional receivers and provides two VGA ports for additional remote displays. In total, this allows users to connect and control up to 80 monitors from one location.
