Our church wants to mount a 19" flat panel monitor at the lecturn and run a cable to the back of the church.

The length of the extension cable will need to be 100 Ft. Willa standard extension cable work on this setup?

Yes a standard extension cord should work. Make sure to keep that plugged into a surge protector, wouldn't want that monitor to fry.

That's okay for power but where is the video signal coming from? An analog connection won't go that distance, digital (DVI) is limited to 5metres (~15ft) without convertors inline.

Google "DVI Repeater" for examples such as this: http://www.ramelectronics.net/html/DVI_extender.html

Any video cable that is made for 100 feet will not work with out some sort of amplification. I would suggest contacting either the manufaturer of the monitor, manufaturer of computer or a local computer repair shop (That know's what they are talking about) or a computer user's group in your area about this matter. Maybe you might have a knowledgable person in your churh that you do not know about snf they might help.
