Splitting a signal to four monitors

We're premiering our short film "Wolf Eyes" in a couple of weeks in a local bar which has a number of plasma TVs along the walls. Is it possible to split the signal and feed four screens without losing too much of the signal? What's the best way?

Da

Use a distribution amp. The general idea would be to take the OUT from each monitor and just loop them... but using a distribution amplifier, use the deck to play the piece, run cable from deck to DA and from the DA to the four monitors. You dont lose as much quality (depending on legnth of cable run) than daisy chain-ing. If in total loss, go out and buy some in-line splitters.

Thanks Daniel. Can you recommend a brand? Is there a base level of quality that I shouldn't go below? Checking at B&H the prices seem to vary a lot.
