I have a customer that wants to put a computer in a Foundry. Even with an enclosure the odds of that computer surviving is next to zero. All this computer is going to do i look at 4 cameras. No real user interaction.
My thought was to maybe put the computer in a office 300-400 feet away and somehow extending the video out to just a monitor in the Foundry. Has anyone ever done this? What method did you use?
If you wanted to run 300 feet or more of VGA cable it looks like you would need a VGA Extender of some sort, or like the one here
I have never tried this, as the longest cable I've used has been 50 feet, and 300 feet is quite a distance, according to one website, it seems that at a resolution of 800x600 is only supported up to just over 100 feet or so without an extender(which use Cat5, and offer over 1000 feet runs)
I've never tried any wireless video transmissions, and definitely not at that range. But I'm sure it would be possible(and expensive).
Hopefully this helps you get what you need.
