If it is a good cable (The Sun ones are very good) 100' / 30 m is no
problem. I use a 4 x RG59 cable set on my Alpha and keyboard / mouse
extensions of about 10 m. No problems.

Don't do that. It will decrease signal quality _significant_, more than
several 100 feet of (good) cable. Believe me. Been there, seen that,
didn't want it.
