HDMI Extenders Over Category Cable



What is an HDMI extender?
HDMI is the modern standard for high-definition audio/video transmission. The convenience of a single A/V connector is, however, offset by a distance limitation. Beyond 50 feet HDMI becomes unreliable and can result in intermittent connections, reduced resolution, or sometimes no connection at all. This is where HDMI extenders step in. The HDMI extender over cat6 can reach up to 100 meters / 328 ft. A cat6 cable is also capable of carrying the data from the HDMI cable over a longer distance without interference. That is 6 times the distance of an HDMI cable!
To HDBaseT or not to HDBaseT?
HDBaseT is the industry leading standard for HDMI transmission over category cable. With the purchase of an HDBaseT extender, users are guaranteed top performance and reliability. The HDBaseT standard supports audio, video, power, control and a network connection over a cat6 cable. This standard also supports 100 watts of power over cat6, which is 100 watts over 100 meters / 328 feet. A non-HDBaseT extender can offer significant savings but may have range or feature limitations by comparison.
Easy Installation
HDMI Extenders can greatly reduce the labor involved in the installation process. In addition to the distance limitation of HDMI cables; they can also be expensive, bulky, and fragile. It’s not uncommon for HDMI cables to be damaged beyond repair during installation. Category cables are smaller and more durable, making them better suited for custom installation.
Future Proof
HDMI Extenders over category cable are a great choice for future-proofing your system. Unlike a physical HDMI cable, when an extender requires replacement or upgrade there is no need to install more wiring. Simply unplug the extender and replace it while using the existing category cable. Overall, BZBGEAR has one of the best HDMI extender options available.

Lock On For Distance - 4K 18Gbps HDMI Extender over Single Coax Cable
The BG-EXHOC is a 4K HDMI signal extender that increases the range of an HDMI input signal up to 110m (363 ft) over a single coaxial cable.

How to Connect a 4K HDMI Extender - BZBGEAR BG-EXH-70C
The BZBGEAR BG-EXH-70C can transmit uncompressed [email protected] HDMI signal with zero latency at distances up to 70 meters. By utilizing a Cat6/6A/7 network cable this extender allows a signal to be transmitted farther than is possible using standard HDMI cables.
BZB Gear’s Ultra Sleek HDMI Extenders Send 1080p, 4K, HDR Signals 164 Ft
BZB Gear's BZB-EXHD and BZB-EXH-50 ultra sleek high-performance HDMI Extenders are budget-friendly and perfect for small- to medium-sized AV applications. The BZB-EXHD works over a single CAT5e/6 to produce high-quality signals and IR over a distance of up to 164ft/50m. The BZB-EXH-50 requires a single CAT6 to extend 4K and HDR signals at 18Gbps.

Any time an HDMI run is longer than 25 feet is a great time to start considering an extender. HDMI reliability decreases with range, maxing out at 50 feet. HDMI cables are easily damaged, and it can be difficult to replace or upgrade a long HDMI cable. Category cables are durable, and the connectors can easily be replaced if they are damaged.

This is primarily a budget concern. HDBaseT extenders are more expensive but are usually more reliable and perform better than their less expensive counterparts. For shorter runs and less complex systems a non-HDBaseT extender can be a great budget option.

BZBGEAR extenders can transmit signals at distances up to 150 meters (BG-EXH-150C).

HDMI extenders help out where HDMI cables are weak—distance. HDMI cables only reach 50 feet before signal deterioration settles in. If you've ever experienced your display pixelating, lagging, even with total picture loss, a common fix is to utilize an HDMI extender. An HDMI extender is a point-to-point device that does exactly what its name implies: it extends an HDMI signal from a source (cable box, game console) to the display. To extend an HDMI signal, HDMI extenders use category cables, or CAT cables; basically what you connect your laptop to your router with for internet access.
