Multiple, far away monitor setup

Just upgraded to the RX 570 in our church computer. We have 4 monitors, 2 of which are 75 feet away using a vga splitter. I know that I need a DVI to VGA cable. What I need to know before install is I was told that I would have to up the settings on the power for distance? Not sure about that. The 2 monitors that are 75 feet away are used for lyrics to songs for the congregation. Any special settings I need to be aware of? 

Thanks

Re: Multiple, far away monitor setup

Make sure your DVI-VGA adapters are the 'Active' type and not passive.

As of the length, Found this really useful Website that gives you all the Maximum Cable lengths for the various Video Outputs: Extending Cable Lengths - SewellDirect.com 

This is the VGA EXTENDER WITH AUDIO from image: V-Link VL10 by Sewell, VGA and 3.5mm over cat5e/6, 1000 ft. - SewellDirect.com
