Need a Lunch room display screen to broadcast company information.

Our company has $5000 to spend and wants to deploy to each lunch room (2)  display screens that will feed company information that employees need to see and show our products in the field that our customers have purchased from us. A picture show that pages through a number of pictures would be fine.

One lunch room is about 150 feet from the IT lab and the other is about 350 feet. We want to be able to feed video streams to the screens and control this from a centeral computer. Any ideas? I will not be in tomorrow until 10:00 AM PST.

I don't know much about this type of thing. I haven't had a TV in 10 years. So I really need help in this area.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Run it on a PC with VGA over cat5 extenders: http://www.svideo.com/vgacat5.html. If it's just video, you should be able to do it with 800x600 resolution, which is good for 350ft.  The displays could be HDTVs with VGA inputs.

For higher quality and IP-based transmission (and higher cost - see http://www.soundandvisionmag.com/audiovideo/2675/netstreams-digilinx-medialinx-and-viewlinx-ip-video.html), a MediaLinX encoder (MLAV-300)  http://www.netstreams.com/resproducts.aspx?ID=2&PId=103 and ViewLinX (VL100) http://www.netstreams.com/resproducts.aspx?PId=102 at each viewing location should work.
