Beware of the complex solution to a simple problem.

It's a fairly simple matter to run an audio feed from the FOH board to the overflow room, and a fairly simple matter to run a composite (yellow connector) signal from a video camera to a projector using 75-ohm coax cable (RG-59 or RG-6) and a couple of RCA to F adapters. No RF modulator needed.

I'm not sure what the maximum length you can drive with this is, but I've pushed through 100' or RG-6 just from the output of the video camera's composite out with no significant loss of quality. It was an NTSC signal, not HD.

The OP's concern (way back in August, and he ended up just running cables anyway) was penetrating a cinder block firewall. If this was a permanent setup, there are proper materials and methods for penetrating a firewall without compromising safety. Since this was a temporary setup, running cables out the back door is (and was) the easiest solution.

Remote desktop is not designed for full motion video. You will get like 3 frames per second.

I have heard good things about wireless VGA extenders. I don't think cinder block would hamper the RF signal used by these. They have a range of about 30ft which is more than enough if you put the receiver and transmitter up against the firewall.

It will do full motion video, IF the video is playing on Server 2008R2 (or Win7 Ultimate/Enterprise) with Remote Desktop Connection version 7.0 on the client computer.
