    Smart tvs. How to display computer without having it near it.

    We just had a new library built and installed 2 smart tvs (LG and samsung) the LG came from the old library.

    Both telly's are plugged in to network. (Only one network port behind the tellys)

    Is there a way I can stick a computer hidden away and out of sight that I can use to display stuff the computers?

    Forget the network for data use and use it to send hdmi over Ethernet to the tv using a balun and then the computers can be anywhere you want.

    I can't mount anything to back of the Tvs (the wall bracket is using the mount)

    I was looking at vga/hdmi over cat5 but there only 1 cable and it plugged in to telly. Also I think the run is too long.

    We have one sender and 6 receivers. To run best quality picture and/or video we make sure that the sender and receivers are on Gigabit switch ports.
