Hi im looking to conect multiple tvs to a splitter to show a presentation in all tvs

 

In the store they recomend this type of cable:

 

http://www.electroventasltda.cl/ficha_producto.php?cod=218503&nom=CABLE-HDMI-REDMERE-15M.-M/M,-V1.4,-3D,-30AWG

 

This is a HDMI v1.4 Slim Cable with redmere technology, about 50 feet long

 

 

and in another they say that with this cable in will not have problems 

 

http://ilproyectos.mercadoshops.cl/cable-hdmi-15-metros-full-hd-14-para-datos-audio-video-_4468xJM

 

 

And this one is a 50 feet HDMI flat cable 

 

The difference between this two cables is big, so o want to know wich i should buy

 

 

Sorry if my english it not very well and the pages are in spanish.

Where are you running the cable? Behind a wall? Is it accessible to be changed out after it has been put in place?


I typically use this cable for 50' runs behind walls:

It is thick, and bulky, and works phenomenally well with video and is designed to go into walls just fine.


I would not choose the second type of cable at all.


I would use a Redmere cable ONLY if I could replace it should it fail. Since Redmere has active electronics in it, the cable can 'fail', which is not ideal if you can't swap it out.


If running cables in your wall, also run 2 pieces of cat-6 cabling along with it so that should the cable fail, you can use cat-6 extenders (HDBaseT) to solve the issue.

Plasma5300 said – ‘I always use Pluglug high speed hdmi’, really?


Edux123 – at 15m I would suggest you go with x2 CAT6 cables per TV and consider utilising an ‘extender’ solution rather than a long HDMI cable.


How many Displays and is this a permanent installation or something you are going to be moving around from venue to venue?

Yes. The pluglug hd900 and hd1000 are certified for in wall installation. Ive never had a problem with the pluglug brand. Ive tried alot trust me. Drove my wife crazy. Mediabridge-white sparkles, twistedveins-handshake issues, bluerigger-just stopped working, monster-too expensive for what you get, pluglug is just as good of quality if not better because it was only 9 bucks.Amazonbasics-flashing screen. I have 3 pluglugs. Hd300 hd600 and the hd900. They all work exactly the same. Im currenyly using them on all my equipment. Not one problem.

‘The pluglug hd900 and hd1000 are certified for in wall installation.’ – they also claim to be High Speed at 15m (which is simply not possible for a passive HDMI cable). I’d be wary of any other claims they make!


Good that they are working for you - just wary of what they are saying re certification!
