The v-Link by Sewell

This is the beginning of a new line by Sewell called Sewell-Link. The v-Link is a Cat5e/6 balun with VGA and stereo audio, it will extend your signal up to 1000 ft.

All-in-one 1x2 VGA Splitter and Extender

The sender unit will split your signal (allowing you to have the VGA and audio right at the source) and use any Cat5e or Cat6 cable to extend the signal to the receiver unit.

Cat6 Cable for HD-Link and Link Series Extenders

Does the Type of Cat5e or Cat6 Cable You Use Matter?

Since Cat5e/Cat6 extenders (aka Baluns) work differently than typical ethernet networks, the quality of the network cable you use really does matter. The bottom line is that Ethernet networks have corrective measures in place to help balance the data load and prevent packet loss, while point-to-point extenders like this don't have this option. For this reason, using cable with extra shielding and extra-robust conductors (like our SSTP Cat6 cables made for extenders) to overcome any potential attenuation issues is recommended. You can read more in this article.

Ideal Situations for the v-Link

  • Digital Signage
  • Security purposes, where the viewing display is located away from the source
  • Anywhere that would be environmentally harsh on your computer equipment, but a display could be mounted, ie. a boat, outdoors, childrens playroom, etc.
  • Any situation where you need to run the wire through your walls/flooring/ceiling. Cat5e/6 is easier to run (not to mention Much less expensive) than a big VGA cable.
  • Great for Projectors in a home scenario or professional/educational setting.
  • This VGA extender with audio is perfect for anytime you need to have your audio and video a significant distance away from the source.

Great Deal

Pros: The signal quality at 225 ft of CAT5 looked comparable to units priced twice the price. The audio send and the additional VGA output on transmitter are nice features.

Cons: A small storage case would be nice. Even if was a soft case with a zipper similar to a microphone case would be fine.

Other: I would reccomend for most applications. I have not tried it with a CAT5 cable longer than 225 ft.

Works like a charm

Pros: This device works really well at a fraction of the cost of other VGA-Cat-5e Extenders.

Cons: None so far

Other: Plan on buying more of these items. The cost is right and the range is by far better than some out there.

Works great

Works great right out of the box. Tested at 650ft cat5 and after a couple of tweaks on the gain, it look almost perfect.

Worked fine

Bruce Campbell - 3/3/2014 11:29:46 AM

Bought the units (2) for an application that required remote monitors from a switched source in a hotel ballroom. Worked great “out of the box” at 1366x768 and 1024x768 resolutions (these are the only ones I needed – didn’t even check others). Used Sewell bulk Cat-5e solid (not stranded) network cable and made 236’ and 260’ runs – both worked fine.

Can there be a digital switch between transmitter and receiver?


No, this will need to have a direct connection, unfortunately it can't go through a switch. It can be passed through a patch panel, but adding connections also increases the chances for signal loss.
