Splitter Display one signal on 32 screens

    I'm looking to send one video signal (HDMI) to 32 screens over CATx, with a 600 foot maximum distance between source and screens.

    Can you offer a solution that can handle this?

    600 foot distance will be stretching the limit of CATx video extension. This leaves three alternative options:
    1) Deploy a video-over IP system which uses a 1G Ethernet switch, but requires that the CATx runs (between either end to the switch be less than 330 feet). This may be difficult to establish in your case, being that your total distance is almost double.
    2) Deploy a video-over IP system which uses a 1G Ethernet switch, combining CATx runs and fiber-optic runs to overcome the 330-foot distance limitation.
    3) Deploy a splitting system combined with extension using fiber-optic instead of CATx.

    And so, we ask:
    a) Are you able to position a 1G Ethernet switch so that it's located no more than 330 feet away from the video source and from any screen?
    b) What video resolution are you looking to run?
