I'm building a computerized directory for a medical office facility, and I have very little experience in the AV world. I'm looking to connect a computer to a digital display of roughly 40", but the cables which connect them need to be small -- Cat5, or another connection which can fit through a 1" diameter hole. There should be no need for audio, so this setup can be fairly simple.
Can a Cat5 carry a video signal from a computer to a display? Can a Cat5 carry a video signal from a router to a display?
If It's possible, I'd love to have a display that can be controlled via Wi-Fi. Is that possible?
I have not bought either the computer (most likely a laptop) or the display yet, so I am open to many options. The laptop will remain on 24/7, should I need one, but I would prefer to be able to control the display from behind a router if possible.
I really appreciate any suggestions!
