Wattage is entirely relevant. The UPS has to be capable of supplying the required current until shut down. What isn't very important is a long run time.

If you are governed by some version of the NEC, CCA doesn't meet code for communications cables if they are being used in-wall because the relevant UL ratings don't recognize them.

HDBaseT doesn't do any transcoding. You get out what you put in. Put in HDMI, you get HDMI out. Put in VGA, you get VGA out. That said, HDMI and DVI are interoperable. You just need a cable with a...

There is no "correct" impedance for line level audio. It doesn't operate as a transmission line. You don't even need coax. 75 ohm video cables are just fine for audio. Use what you have.
