I tested this by hooking up my Nvidia shield and my TV. The Nvidia Shield was around 25m away from the TV. I started playing a 4K Youtube video and the signal came through without any issues. This uses Cat6 to transfer the video through an established infrastructure.

With full support for your HDMI 2.0 equipment, including 4K resolution at 60Hz, this extender can transmit at a bandwidth of up to 18Gbps, making it the ideal solution for high-resolution tasks requiring the highest colour detail.

For smoother video and colour transitions, the extender offers 4:4:4 chroma subsampling via visually lossless compression, meaning every pixel gets its unique colour.

This is overkill for home entertainment, but perfect for office presentations. This allows people to connect to a projector and then to their pc.

HDR is supported, which a great addition. You can enjoy lifelike images with increased contrast, brightness and colours and greater luminosity than standard digital imaging.

The extender only requires a single CAT5e or CAT6 cable, so you can extend an HDMI signal using your building’s existing infrastructure. Plus, this HDMI extender supports Power Over Cable (POC), which means you’ll only need one power adapter connected to either your transmitter or receiver.
