Hello experts:

We want to have 16 Tvs display the same content in our office, the TVs will be spread out in the office with some at about 250 feet from the network closet. I’ve been looking into Tripp-Lite 2-Port HDMI over Cat6 extender but it gives a maximum distance of 150 feet and other products from hdtv supply that extend to 330 feet.
My question is on the input end, should I build a computer and add two video cards with 8 hmdi ports on it, should I use a hdmi splitter, or should I device the monitors to go to two different systems?
This type of project is new to me so any input from someone who’s done it in the past would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

The splitters are the cheapest option. You can try this one  http://www.mycablemart.com/store/cart.php?m=product_detail&p=5071&gclid=CK2S6NLSgs4CFU1ZhgodlZ4OJQ


 Video cards however,
 will give you the option to have multiple feeds, so you can alternate between feeds when needed (which may become useful at times)

I recommend You use a computer with a dual output on the videocard, each going though splitters and extenders.
This way you can run two feeds (8 & 8)  or a single feed of 16 monitors, but at least you have options for later
