Frequently Asked Questions
- What devices is VGA Grid compatible with? Will VGA Grid work with my application?
- Does VGA Grid work with the Gigabit Ethernet interface only?
- How many frames per second can VGA Grid transfer?
- Does VGA Grid reduce the resolution of the images it captures in order to transfer it over Ethernet?
- Does VGA Grid have recording or archiving capabilities?
- The video mode that I am using is not listed in the list of supported modes for VGA Grid. Can VGA Grid capture it?

- What compression does VGA Grid use to transfer data over Ethernet?
Using a VGA Grid system solves the need for combining the images from multiple VGA/RGB monitors, radars, servers, ATMs, VLTs, medical devices, and practically any other device with a VGA, DVI, HDMI, Composite, or S-Video output. Integrating VGA Grid devices into your existing infrastructure is not only cost-effective, but simple as well - simply pass the VGA signal of every video feed that you would like to monitor through a VGA Grid device. All that is needed for the VGA Grid to function is a local area network (LAN) or a connection to the Internet. And, since the VGA Grid is a compact, external, and stand-alone device, the source equipment does not need to be modified in any way.
The VGA Grid was designed for Gigabit Ethernet networks, meaning that a Gigabit Ethernet connection is required on the local area network (LAN) for optimal performance. VGA Grid will also work with older 100BASE-T Fast Ethernet and 10BASE-T networks, but with a reduction in its performance.
For critical applications where video quality matters, VGA Grid is the only device on the market which retains 100% lossless image quality whether you are monitoring, recording, or broadcasting a VGA source at 1 or 30 frames per second. In addition, VGA Grid uses Epiphan Systems’ proprietary pre-compression technology in order to relay the signal to the VGA Bridge Gateway. This provides for extremely high capture and transmission rates while monitoring sources with little change between frames, such as a radar screen. The performance and frame rate of the VGA Grid is limited only by the network capacity and available bandwidth.
No. VGA Grid captures and transfers every pixel of the original frame in 24-bits-per-pixel, 8:8:8 format. In this respect, VGA Grid provides diagnostic-quality images - superior to other solutions such as analog video conversion and transfer.
VGA Grid goes far beyond being a monitoring solution. It allows you to add broadcasting, recording and auto archiving functionality to any device without the need for complicated and bulky recorders.
Please contact us. We are always looking for ways to improve our system and may be willing to add support for this mode.
VGA Grid is accessed through a fully secure and password-protected web interface. This means that there is absolutely no software to install on the computer that is being used as a monitoring station, whether it uses Windows, Linux, or Mac OS.
VGA Grid uses Epiphan Systems' proprietary loss-less image compression developed specifically for the VGA Grid. This ensures a high quality picture without a compromise in transfer rate.
