Depending on required resolution, the maximum length of a VGA cable varies between 30 meters for lower resolutions to only 7.5 meters for higher resolutions. The signal that travels through a VGA cable is analog, which degrades and fades as it travels longer distances.
The first VGA cable was designed and produced in 1987. As of 2014, it is still available in the market. The connector at the end of a VGA cable is a DE-15 connector which has three rows of five pin connectors. A VGA port can be found on video cards, high-definition television sets and computer screens.
