HDMI over TCP/IP? Any devices with low latency?

Are there any devices (1080p or 4K) that can encode an HDMI audio/stream stream and send it over a network as TCP/IP? I'd like to decode it on my PC for viewing.

I think the type of device I'm looking for is an "IPTV encoder" and there seems to be several available but I'm not sure on the latency.

VideoStorm also makes a NetPlay device but I've heard it's fair high latency so it won't work for video games.

The best I have seen is Crestron's Video Over IP solution called NVX, is it 4K 4:4:4 60fps, latency is in the 30ms range.

Most others I have used are in the 60-90ms range depending on the network configurations which IMO is unusable for gaming.

If I am spacing out a system, I would recommend HDBaseT if it is an option or leaving the gaming PC/Console local in the room it is used.

For gaming, if you are using Xbox you can already directly stream this to Windows PCs (microsoft free app).
