Extending Video Over Long Distances
Many applications today require video to be extended over long distances, including security/surveillance, digital signage, and multimedia entertainment. Many newer digital video signals such as HDMI and DVI are limited to approximately 15 and 5 meters respectively over standard copper cabling. VGA/SVGA is typically limited to 50-75 feet, depending on the quality of the cable, the output power, and the receive sensitivity of the transmitter and receiver.
Extending Video Signals Over Copper Video Cabling
One way to extend the distance of your video signal is to use an amplifier. The amplifier retimes, regenerates, and resends video signals to increase the effective length of transmission. Many amplifiers use traditional copper video cabling as the means of connectivity.

Extending Popular Video Types Over Category 5E Cabling
Several video extenders are available which utilize standard Cat5E cabling to extend video signals up to 330 feet or more in some cases. These Cat5 extenders consist of a sender and receiver unit which are connected via Cat5E cabling.
Extending Video Over Fiber Optic Cabling
If your application demands video to be transmitted long distances beyond the 300 foot limit and/or require immunity to EMI and RFI then fiber optic cabling is the perfect solution. There are many video extension options available which can extend video signals over fiber optic cabling.
