Out of curiosity, do the monitors/Tvs hanging have a vga port on them? Many flat panels do, even to this day. I ask because while not as versatile a solution, I'd love to see the content being driven to the monitors from one of the 80s Classic machines we have. An early PC or Mac (Mac II/iici/iicx type models came out from '87-'89 or their PC equivalent) can easily drive a vga cable (with db15 to vga adapter in the case of an early Mac..... which is cheap and easy to find) up to 15m in length with a decent quality cable and usually without need for a buffer amp. I've done it in the past (waaaaay past!) myself with older CRT monitors back in the day.
May be more work than wanted, just thought some vintage tech driving modern tech would be cool considering who we are and where it's being used!!
I'd gladly help/donate equipment/software should this be an avenue of interest. Didn't want to make more work but I love seeing the tech of my youth still being useful!
