    TV Information System

    Ok People,

    I have the task of redesigning our TV information System,

    We would like something which is easy to update, and is resonabaly cheap to add another screen when required.

    It has to span 3 buildings on the same sight, and preferably have a nice windows based interface, and hopfully not require a PC per Screen/TV

    You will probably need to have slaves in the buildings that are connected to your main building by fibre I presume?

    These slaves can pump out yuor images using vga over cat5 if you want all the screens to display the same thing.

    The master in the main building can push out its images via vga over cat5 as well.

    There is no direct cat5 links in any building, All a bit bodged from all the combination of 4 different networks before i came here 4 yrs ago,

    There is however fibre ran between all the buildings, That sound like the Solution Pupils.Tv gave us, but seems a lil bit expensive. But we will have to see.

    At the moment i am running 3 TVs in the same bulding off a PC with 3 RM EKKOs broadcasting from them and 2 have media converters because the are CRT. The Response is very slow and RM have stopped Developing the EKKOs.

    The main thing i should have said is that we are a Vinalla School no Managed Software (until BSF)

    Re: TV Information System

    In order to send the images or whatever to another building that is only connected by a fibre you need to have a machine taking the data from the master in order to be able to broadcast it.

    I wasn't suggesting cat5 between buildings just cat5 from the presenter pc's to the displays.

    What displays do you currently have that you want to keep?

    You'd be better off using a vga/video splitter and vga/video over cat5 baluns.
