I've been asked to help install 6 plasma televisions in a bar.
The current system has an electronic video switcher with 4 sources / 4
destinations for feeding the right stuff (Foxtel, DVD, video, etc) to
the right screens. It is a composite video switcher.
S-Video would have been nice but I don't think all the sources have it
and it would mean replacing a fair bit of gear.
Looks like all the displays will be on 1 "destination".
I was going to run them daisy chained (I've yet to see the TVs selected
and figure they should have composite in / out to allow looping like this).
Alternatively it could be a "star" topology - what kind of splitter
should I use and where might I find a 6 channel version?
This method obviously has better "fault tolerance".
Cable runs will be RG59 (standard CCTV coax) of not more than 25 meters.
All comments welcome.
