Distributed Video can be as minimal as extending a single video feed to a tv for the purpose of hiding a video source, or using a video matrix switcher, allowing for multiple video sources to be shared from an equipment rack to multiple tv's throughout the home. Common video sources are: Cable/satellite box, BluRay player, Apple TV, Roku, and many other streaming devices.
When sharing video sources, this creates an environment where the same source can be watched simultaneously in all areas. This gives you more options without the need for multiple source components at each tv.
Distributed Video is usually coupled with Whole House Audio to allow you to hear all tv audio through the overhead speakers in each area.. Including those areas without tv's.
