Gefen's ex-tend-it CAT5-7000 and CAT5-8000 are easy-to-use KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) extension solutions that are designed to provide an effective method of extending computer peripherals for remote operation anywhere within a 330, 450 or 600-foot distance from the computer. Remote multimedia-presentation ability is also delivered with upgraded Category-5 cables that bundle video signals.

The CAT5-7000 extends two analog monitors, any USB peripheral, PS/2 keyboard/mouse, RS-232 touch screen and two audio outputs/one audio input up to 330 feet from the computer. It comes with sender and receiver units, as well as cables to connect to monitors, peripherals, keyboard/mouse and audio. The sender sits with the computer while the receiver sits with the remote workstation; both units are connected by up to four Category-5 cables that are sold separately. The CAT5-8000 extends three monitors in addition to USB, RS-232 and audio. Monitor extensions can reach distances of 600 feet, while USB peripherals can go to 450 feet.

Both the CAT5-7000 and CAT5-8000 are compatible with cross-platform computers using USB and RS-232 peripherals, and support all types of CRT and LCD analog monitors. Both are available online at for $1,495. Free technical telephone support is included in the price and is provided during normal business hours for the lifetime of the product.
