Yes, but not over 200ft away. Imagine a computer at the back of an auditorium that needs to display its imagine at the front of the room. You'd need 200ft of cable to get there, but without an amplifier, a normal video card won't cut it.

Windows 7 has this built in (Duplicating displays) So if your graphics card has 2 ports already you probably won't have any use for this.

This device is used to extend the distance you can send your computer signal to a TV or monitor.

If you try to use a normal cable the signal degrades or lags badly, this is a possible solution to avoid those problems.

as someone who loves obsolete equipment i had to have this. the multi-monitor thing is always terribly rad looking ([s]even if[/s] especially if broadcasting VHS.)

as an electronics geek i'd like to be more technically knowledgeable than i actually am...
what does "cascadable to three levels – provides up to 8 video signals" mean? (potential simultaneous output to 8 monitors?) and how does one "cascade?"

Going by the product description I would think that "manual" means your left hand.

From their website: "Daisy-Chain multiple units together for even more outputs"

Each one will give you only ONE extra output, you need to buy SEVERAL!

Hmm, if it can't replicate a 3840x1024 signal, three could still replicate a 1280x1024 image each, and for less than the cost of a used second Matrox TripleHead2Go Analog Edition.

I think I'm in for three.

It means if you buy 7 of these (yes, you need 3 woot accounts) you can plug them all to each other, one source and 8 monitors, then all 8 monitors will show the same thing.

And "cascade" means connecting them.... the only obvious way? Y'know, output from one into the input of another -- not sure how to say it any clearer.

wooters.us FTW!
