Shielded / Foil cables are more expensive than Unshielded even on lower bandwidth, but provides a better signal transfer on longer distances and shields better from electromagnetic interference. Shielded / Foil cable needs to be used for Video/Audio TMDS channel on video and audio extenders to ensure improved syncing / stable signals. The DDC Channel on HDMI extenders can use Unshielded twisted pair, but in general UTP is not supported by manufacturer due to signal attenuation and interference from nearby EMI. Shielded / Foil cables also needs to be grounded properly when terminated (using the ripcord inside cabling) to ensure the cables are properly earthed for possible spikes / surges.
To terminate / crimp RJ45 connectors correctly onto UTP or STP cables use RJ45 / RJ11 Crimping tool for UTP / STP cables.
