Can HDMI Work Over Long Distances?

HDMI is a powerful connection format that has emerged over the last few years. This format has shown its importance because of its high quality and the convenience it brings to users. For a computer or laptop to be connected to a screen such as a television screen, it can be done by using an HDMI cable. These cables connect two devices for high-quality AV content transmission.

However, when long distances are involved, sending content in this format may become a problem.

For instance, imagine you need to connect a device to a home theatre system. In this case, devices such as the Blu-ray player and the TV screen are located far apart. This could mean a compromise in the HDMI transmission. In such instances a signal booster becomes essential.

HDBaseT
HDBaseT is an emerging HDMI technology that can be used over long distances. This can be used for home or residential purposes to make its usage effective even over long distances.

This technology transmits up to a 4K resolution which results in Ultra HD. HDBaseT is changing the world of HDMI because it enables the distribution of audio, video, and ethernet data just using one cable.

HDBaseT is not a replacement for HDMI. This technology actually works with HDMI. This technology will support it in terms of its signal since it is capable of extending the transmission of signal up to 100 m.

When you want to connect a device to your TV screen and a standard cable is not able to handle the distance, HDBaseT might be the answer.
