Any way of sending a monitor signal (analogue) over long distance to a digital projector? By long distance I mean 20 perhaps 25m. Would it be possible just to make up a very long cable? I'm guessing not due to noise and signal loss. Not only that but I don't really fancy the idea of either buying (cost) or soldering one myself (time). It also needs to be 100% reliable, since it's to be used in a school play I'm helping out with the lighting on next week - I'm not entirely sure yet (first rehearsal with technical is on Saturday) but I think we are going to be running a projector for something, and being the most knowledgable when it comes to computers I reckon it will become my job. Only solution I can think of atm is to use some form of IP system - and with cable (Cat5) not wireless. Running the Cat5 wouldn't be a problem, but this leaves two problems; how to encode it on the pc end, and then how to decode it at the projector? Any help is much appreciated because I worry that unless I can come up with a better option, those in charge will decide to have one of us sitting down near stage and operating a pc from there (not desirable because a) it would be boring and b) we are already going to running with one less board op for two days so can't really spare any for the pc) - my intention is of course to run it from a laptop in the lighting balcony. Thanks, null edit - two things; a)would this be more suited to general hardware, and if so could a passing don move it, thanks and b) I've just realised, by laptop has S-Video out, and I assume the projector does too - if this opens up any more possibilites great, but I worry that S-Video gives lower quality than monitor cable.
