I have a device that outputs a VGA signal. It is in a remote location. I would like to take that output and send it via wifi to a computer. I cannot hard wire it.


Here is what I am thinking.


The device to accept the vga input converts the signal and has the ability to stream a live view via built in webpage. This same device has either wired(I can connect to wifi router) or wireless ethernet connectivity.


I would connect to the device vi IP and then open the web interface with a standard browser and view the live stream.


I know Epiphan produces devices that can accomplish this but they are thousands of dollars.


Can anyone recommend something a little less expensive?


Thanks for any and all assistance.

Exactly what is the device?


Most computers have only VGA outputs, not inputs.


If you've miscommunicated the input/output requirements, you might consider putting a very inexpensive computer at the location of the device and doing the video connection to your main computer using X-windows or some other remote display protocol.


Edited to add: StarTech is another supplier of VGA-over-Ethernet hardware, with units typically costing $150 to $300. They're even available from Sears
viewing it would be directly on a display, though, not in a browser.
