Subject: Extending monitor/keyboard/mouse


We are planning to place just the LCD monitor, keyboard and mouse into a RF
shielded room (needed for hosting 9.4T Horizontal Magnet MRI scanner). And
CPU (Sun Blade 100) will be in another room 20ft away. We would prefer an
optical solution as far as cabling goes. Cordless solution for mouse and
keyboard is not a possibility if they operate in RF range. Due to high
magnetic field inside the room, keeping a machine inside the room has the
of wiping data on disk if one has no knowledge of the fringe fields; it is
kind of like playing with fire from SysAdmin's perspective. Besides, there
be no devices or items that can generate RF since it interferes with MRI
scanner. We want to minimize number of copper wires going in/out of this
shielded room, if there are no "optical" solutions.

Any ideas? Any vendors specializing this? We would appreciate your prompt
response. We will summarize.
