Q: What is the best cable for HDBaseT applications?
A: For HDBaseT applications, the HDBaseT Alliance states on their website, "Higher quality cable will keep the signal better than low quality cable over distances. A noise-free environment will deliver better performance over the distance than a noisy or EMI-prone environment."" Since shielded cables help prevent a noisy environment, they would be the ideal choice for HDBaseT applications. Shielded Category 6, 6A and 7 cables offer exceptional performance when it comes to minimizing outside noise interference. Hitachi Cable America offers Stratogig-HD™ Category 7 cable (each of the four pairs inside a foil shield) as its highest performing HDBaseT cable. Certified by the HDBaseT Alliance, the Stratogig-HD offers unmatched performance in a 4-pair cable.
