A technical guide on how to choose HDMI Cables & Equipment is available at Choosing the Correct HDMI Cables and HD Distribution Equipment. If you are not sure which items to purchase please send us an e-mail with requirements using the Contact form on the left under the Information section and we will select the correct products for you based on your requirements. To extend HDMI cables use the HDMI Coupler / Socket - Female to Female (Gold Plated Connectors)
Some sources / players do not produce an equalized HDMI signal and for coupling or extending HDMI Cable lengths beyond 15 meters we recommend that a HDMI Active Equalizer Extender / Repeater be used rather than a HDMI Coupler.
For lengths exceeding 25 meters and with conduit cable space restrictions we recommend either of the following products HDMI Extender CAT-5e / CAT-6 w/Tx + Rx (30m 1080p) or HDMI Super Extender CAT6 w/Tx + Rx (50m-60m 1080p)
HDMI CABLES AND EQUIPMENT SHOULD NEVER BE CONNECTED / DISCONNECTED WHILE YOUR EQUIPMENT IS POWERED ON SINCE THE HDMI PORT CARRIES A LOW VOLTAGE BUT CAN CAUSE DAMAGE TO EQUIPMENT WHEN PLUGGED / UNPLUGGED WHILE POWERED ON.
