For HDMI runs of 50'+, I typically use Snap's B-540-EXT-230-IR
(or the next model up for the longer runs) over shielded cat6. They are approx mid $400s MSRP.
For more reliability and higher bandwidth, I recently got some recommendations
on this forum for extenders that use multimode fiber. These recommendations were great, but cost in the $1k range and require field termination of fiber.
If I want to stick to the ~$400 range and avoid field termination of fiber, can I still get improved reliability and simplified installation using an optical-based HDMI solution? Is this what I could expect from Celerity?
I see this
100' optical cable from Legrand, but the ends are not detachable, and I hate the idea of non-replacable ends.Monoprice
also seems to have a line of these products.
Overall, I feel like there are many optical-based HDMI solutions popping up, and I'm just trying to get a handle on them.
