The optimal arrangement is to put a frontend machine near each monitor and
send the video out from the central location over the network. Without a
frontend machine, you can send your video over distance by terminating your
RG-6 coax with RCA connectors and sending a composite video signal, or for a
truly crappy viewing expoerience, you could get an RF modulator to feed
your video signal into.
The question you really need to be asking yourself, though , is how am I
going to remotely control the frontend running the central closet?
