InSight Systems has actually experienced the obstacle of running long cable lengths in numerous commercial applications consisting of projects at Swinburne University of Technology and Box Hill TAFE. Both customers needed to keep exceptional signal quality over fars away so to avoid any loss in data, InSight make use of Extron's Twisted Pair innovation. The Extron solution takes the VGA, DVI or HDMI signal, converts and extends it over protected, low skew UTP cabling. A transmitter and receiver pair is used for magnetic USB cable each cable length, guaranteeing the signal quality is maintained from source to display.
