Closing up the walls in my house soon, and could use some help. I have 8 TV's to which I want to distribute HDMI, (incl 3D, 1080p/60, and future 4Kx2K if possible). Distances vary between 20 and 50 feet. There are two options I'm considering, and I'd enjoy hearing opinions about which option is better and why. I'd also entertain additional options.
1) Run Blue Jeans Cable Series-1 HDMI cables and use an Aurora Multimedia ASP-88 8x8 HDMI 1.4a matrix that is HDMI in, HDMI out.
2) Run UTP Cat-6 cables and use an Atlona AT-PRO2HD88M 8x8 HDMI 1.4a matrix that is HDMI in, HDBase-T out. Receivers would be Atlona AT-PRO2HDREC.
Within reason, reliability is more important than cost to me. Dropouts, sparklies, etc. are totally unacceptable to me at any price. I'd rather abandon centralized video and use all local sources than tolerate that. I'm after the best and most future-proof system I can self-install. Any thoughts about these two combos, or anything else? Please note that I've ruled out component distribution also.
So far, I have not been able to locate a single thread anyplace, where someone ran either of these two systems in their home. I will be sure to post results with whatever I decide. Thanks in advance!
