What "bullet proof" options are available today? Cat6 would be the best. Running from a Lumagen XE3D to a projector (JVC RS55).

How about this?

Thanks. SJ

If you mean "bullet proof" as in it will always work, maybe. I think once you get this working and if you don't change any configurations it will continue to work. Check the user reviews and maybe search on this forum's archives. However, one of the monoprice reviews said,

"This one The ME100E The Network port and Power supplies on these is unreliable. The OEM confirms that they have several in-field issues with this model which we ordered by mistake, after returning many of the CTHDMI-100EE to their OEM. You get what you pay for in many cases. be careful if your business name is riding on a part that you choose wisely. If you family relies on your technology decisions, then stick with the base model. MonoPrice, ME100E (OEM Part CTHDMI-100E)."

If you mean "future proof", then no. It will not work with future formats (such as 4K).

Bullet Proof meaning highly reliable. Cost isn't the biggest consideration. Any other options? Lumagen sells one as well as other suppliers. SJ

All HDBaseT devices are based on the same chipsets from Valens. So, from that standpoint they are all the same. The differences are going to show up in power supplies, the PC board design, the other parts on the board, and quality of fabrication. Low cost products should work just like expensive ones, unless the manufacturer just plain screws up. And, apparently, they do. Kind of stupid considering the most expensive part by far is the Valens chip.

If cost doesn't matter, you should check Rainbowfish.com for fiber optic cable. It's rated for 1000'.
