VGA Bridge - How it Works
VGA Bridge sends the video output from the source over Ethernet, to another VGA Bridge connected to another projector or display screen. Remote participants can view the original source in real-time, including while speaking with or listening to the presenter on the phone.
Each VGA Bridge device at the source and destination is a stand-alone external portable appliance device. The source display equipment does not need to be modified in any way, and destination display with the VGA Bridge receiver simply connects to the VGA, DVI or HDMI of the destination display. What's more, there is no need for a separate computer on the receiving side. Simply plug the destination monitor that you would like to see the synchronized picture on directly into the VGA Bridge. Virtually every monitor and projector with VGA, DVI, or HDMI capability is compatible with the VGA Bridge.
When two VGA Bridges are connected to a network via an Ethernet connection, they automatically pair once powered on, instantly synchronize the image coming from the input signal to the target monitor.
Epiphan's VGA Bridge supports all VGA, DVI, and HDMI resolutions up to 1920×1200 and, under most conditions, is able to convey a diagnostic-quality signal at transfer rates in excess of 30 frames per second.
HDMI support is limited to unencrypted video signals only.
