Need to hook up a plasma tv to a pc that is 100ft away!

by dirtrider1nsw08 / May 11, 2010 4:19 AM PDT

Just like the title says, i'm looking for a solution to hook up a plasma tv in a conference room to a computer that is located over 100ft away. The computer has dvi output but i have no idea if they make a cable long enough let alone without dropping signal. Is there a special converter box i can use to make it a composite signal?

Computer hook up

Good luck, best way would be to move the computer, if possible or use a laptop with HDMI capability, assuming plasma t.v. has the hook ups.

AV Sender/Receiver

Use an AV sender and receiver. They work in 2.4 or 5.6 GHz and up to 100 meter range. Sender converts AV and sends wireless to receiver which converts back to Av and into TV.
Also comes with Remote and be purchased at any good Electronics store for less an $100.00

Good for home to send all from PC to Tv without wires.
