I have two projectors mounted in the ceiling of our church and need to run video signal to both of them from a single source. The sources for the video will have RCA, HDMI,DVI and USB outputs.

There are "active" splitters which will drive long cable runs, however the signal quality will be degraded. Use RG 6 cable with adapters to distribute video signals. The smaller the cable, the poorer the quality and more loss in a long wire.

We usually refer to this type of installation as a "distribution amplifier."
"audio/video" distribution amp is the most common and cheapest, most practical, and cheapest way to go. This just distributes the RCA plug-- composite video and audio signals.

It's better to just pick ONE format and buy a distribution amp for that ONE format, instead of trying to distribute four different formats at once. That multiformat method will become complicated and expensive.
