VGA or HD15 is the analog connection used to connect computers and laptops to projectors or additional monitors. In light of Analog Sunset, VGA is considered a legacy connector, and will be replaced with a digital HDMI or DisplayPort connector in the near future.
VGA HD15 cables are designed for source to display connectivity in commercial, in-home and desktop applications. These cables support video resolutions of up to QXGA (2048x1536) and Extended Display Identification Data (EDID) signals.
VGA HD15 cables carry an analog signal from a VGA enabled device such as a projector or computer to a monitor. In light of Analog Sunset, VGA is considered a legacy connector, and will be replaced with a digital HDMI or DisplayPort connector in the near future.

Intended Resolution (Pixels)
Choose the optimum resolution for your system to ensure the best fit. Determine the intended resolution for the monitor you have, and then choose a cable that best matches that resolution. Don't just consider price; you should also base your decision upon product use and the environment it is located.
Are you connecting a monitor for your desk, a projector for presentations, etc.? For desk monitors, SXGA or SVGA cables should be sufficient.
Is it a critical connection that can be prone to EMI and RFI interference that can affect picture quality? Then choose our Pro Series UXGA monitor cables that use ferrites for superior protection against EMI and RFI.
Is installation an issue such that a break-away capability will save installation time? Then choose our SXGA Break-Apart cables that are designed for easy installation.
If you need CMP-rated plenum cable to pass fire safety regulations, use our SXGA Plenum Cables or SVGA Bulk Plenum cable for installation within walls and air plenums without the conduit.

VGA (Video Graphics Array) is the minimum standard resolution for PCs today, and is supported by all IBM-compatible computers. Maximum resolution varies between 16 colors (640 x 480) up to 256 colors (320 x 200). This will work but will hardly give you the high-quality picture that computer users expect these days.
SVGA (Super Video Graphics Array) can usually display up to 16 Million colors. The resolution varies with the diagonal dimension of the screen; the larger this dimension, the more pixels can be displayed horizontally and vertically.
SXGA (Super Extended Graphics Array) is superior and delivers a resolution up to 1280 x 1024.
UXGA is the sharpest VGA-type resolution and delivers up to 1600 x 1200.
