Can HDMI work for Long Distance?
HDMI is a powerful connection format that has emerged in important because of its high quality and the convenience it brings to users. In order 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. HDMI connects two devices in order for the high quality AV content transmission.
However, when long distances are involved, sending content over HDMI may become a problem.
For instance, if you need to connect a device to a home theater system where devices such as the Blu-ray player and the TV screen are located far apart—-HDMI transmission can be compromised. In such instances an HDMI signal booster becomes essential.
