MST 1 dp to 4 dp converter to be used in total of 10 projectors and one screen.

Dear helpdesk,

I have a question regarding your 1 to 4 output DP converter:

I need to run 10 projectors and one screen for normal use. I want to use a GTX 980 with 3 dp ports and one DVI output. Each projector will only need 1024-768pixels resolution and I would like to run it on High quality VGA cable with around 30 Meter length. So I would use only 10 of the 12 outputs (using 3 of your converters) and would like to know if this is possible with your hardware. Would I need amplifiers for the signal, or do I need 2 instead of one video card.
Or would you advise a different video card which works better with your converter. We will custom build the Pc for this set up so anything within similar budget I can do. The tower will have following specs right now:

I7 4790 3.6Ghz 8MB 4C/8T
Asus Z97 PRO Chipset Z97
16GB 2x8GB DDR3-1866 Kingston HyperX
SSD 120GB SATA3 Sitaking
PCIe SSD KingstonHyperX Predator 480GB
Case CoolerMaster 690 III
PSU Seasonic X-Series 850W 80+G
CPU Cooling Liquid Corsair H80i

Thanks a lot already for the advice,

Best regards, Wesley

The set up will have to run daily for around 7 hours strait using Resolume Arena software.

I would recommend a different setup.

Overall AMD cards are “friendlier” for use with multi monitor setups than NVidia.

Your setup will cost about 1050,- € end user price for VAG Card and MST Hubs.

If you choose 2 x Eyefinity 6 card (CGAX-7856M6) end-user price 285 * 2 = 570,- €

You might need some adapter cables (if you did not already), but still much cheaper.

This CGAX-7856M6:

Will generate 6 x mini-DP output on each card and can run 6 x 1080p @ 60Hz.

So with 2 cards you can run a total of 12 screens in 1080p @ 60Hz.

If you let me know the OS and screens (brand / type) I might be able to advise you also on which adapter cables you will need.

Dear club 3D.

Thank you for the reply, the card looks very good. If I would use converters from DP to VGA, how long could I then make the cable? I would need 30Meter, and will be using high quality cable for this.
I would connect the following projector:
(10 of these running on 1024-768)
And will connect one normal 20 inch screen running 1920-1080, with 1,5 meter cable only.

Do you deliver the cards inside Thailand? Or do you know a supplier here? Else might order them in The Netherlands and ship them over myself. Thanks already

Best regards,

Hi Wesley,


The chance that it will go well is bigger if you would use the HDMI input on the Beamers.

A digital signal will get less signal loss than an analog signal, and they adapter cable is normally also

A bit cheaper. We never tested this with 30 meter cables, but with good cables it should be possible

To go up to 30 meters according to some info I read online.

I would advise you to test with this adapter cable:

CAC-1153 = Mini-DP to HDMI Active Adapter Cable High Quality

We do not have a distributor in Thailand I am afraid.

I do have a contact in Singapore, but he is not having stock on either the VGA Card or the Adapter Cables L

Please let me know if there’s anything else I can do.

Best regards,


Thanks a lot for the input, I will order the cards from Holland and ship them over. Which converter would you suggest if I want to change DP strait to VGA? Any suggestions?



Hi Wesley,


Mini-DP to VGA Active Adapter Cable would be the CAC-1102:
