Looking for some HDMI cable recommendations for use with a keystone jack

I working on one of my conference rooms and I need to have the cables clean, meaning, I can't just have a extra long HDMI cable from the Projector, and hanging out of the wall. I have a keystone jack for an HDMI cable that I got from monoprice.

Here's what I need, a long cable from the projector to the back of the keystone jack that is at least 35 feet long. The from the other finished side of the keystone jack, a jumper cable will occasionally be plugged into that. This cable needs to be at least 15FT long.

Any suggestions?

At 50'+ in total length on this run, with a jumper in between, you really should be looking at 22AWG cable, and you may need an active signal balancer to make this work properly. Are you just going behind walls, or are you going above a drop ceiling? If you are going through the ceiling, is it a plenum space or is it non-plenum?

I would use the Monoprice 22AWG HDMI cable for behind the wall if you are in a non-plenum space. Otherwise, something like this would be required:

You will need to consider strain relief or angle of insertion on any HDMI wall connections.
