The StarTech DS128 is a digital signage broadcaster. It is compatible with virtually any VGA-capable PC or digital signage media player. It sends out VGA, audio, and RS-232 signals from the source to the DSRXL receiver (sold separately) up to 100m away over a single Cat 5 cable. One receiver can output signals to one or two displays. If you need to extend signals to more remote displays, more receivers can be purchased. You can also daisy-chain the receivers to extend the signals further.
