I have a customer who is looking to extend the output of a weather station into a second aircraft hangar at an airport. The vendor has approved doing this, but says that any solution we implement must be done "after the monitor." The output is a single VGA port.
They have explained that this means the signal must go from the station to the primary display without any interruption in signal. I am looking for a way to use an ethernet based or even IP based extender in this configuration.
Does a monitor with a video-out passthrough exist? The requirement for uninterrupted signal to the main display leaves out the use of a splitter device, but I am wondering if they will allow a passive Y-Cable. We are checking on that, but I am looking for alternatives if that falls through.
EDIT: The vendor confirmed that a splitter cable is NOT acceptable, so a pass-through monitor would be the only option.
