What is the maximum recommended length of an HDMI cable?
The HDMI LLC organization has not specified a maximum recommended length for HDMI cables, but suggest using an HDMI repeater for any cable lengths over 10 meters. Quest offers premium quality High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet 28AWG cables up to 25ft.; 26AWG 30ft. and 50ft. cables to allow longer distances; and 75ft. and 100ft. HDMI cables with built-in repeaters. For any HDMI distance over 30ft, we recommend using an HDMI repeater to assure the distance that you require.

What is the best way to hide cables behind a wall mount TV?
Quest offers two solutions. One is our Premiere Raceway TV WireHider™ Kit. It is a two channel raceway that allows separation of A/V cables in one channel and AC power cables in the second channel. It also comes complete with a paintable cover lid to allow the user to match it to the wall color so it is hidden in plain sight, and it adheres to the wall with two-sided adhesive tape.  The second option is to hide the cables in the wall using Quest’s PowerBridge solution which allows the cables to be hidden behind the wall.

What is the difference between category levels for Cat5E, Cat6 and Cat6A network performance?

What is a Rack Unit, and why is it important?
A rack unit (U or RU = 1.75”) is a unit of measure defined by the EIA-310 standard which determines the mounting height of equipment to be installed in an electronic enclosure or rack. (i.e.: 1U = 1.75”; 2U = 3.5”; 3U = 5.25” etc…). This standard allows uniform installation of equipment such as patch panels or shelving in an enclosure or rack so there is virtually no wasted space when fully populated.
