50ft HDMI cables are pretty easy to come by, and they're easily as cheap
as 100ft of CAT6 and some adapters. Also remember that HDMI is a
shielded twisted pair cable. You're trading one STP cable rated for
10gbps for two UTP cables rated 1gbps each.
For $1000, plus whatever you need to spend on four video cards on your
backend, and a board to support four video cards, you could easily put
together four dedicated machines to sit next to the TVs.
