HDBaseT Optimal Performance CAT Cable Chart

  • Please note: Stranded cables will reduce performance by 30-40%
  • Patch cables, wall plates, connecting blocks may effect transmission distance. Please refer to HDBaseT best practice guide. http://hdbaset.org/installers/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/Dos-and-Donts-WP.pdf
  • While CAT5E can support 4K resolutions, transmission distances are greatly reduced versus using CAT6A or greater
  • Atlona recommends T568B termination for optimal performance
  • There are currently no male CAT7 RJ45 connectors (only female RJ45’s), as such male CAT6 RJ45’s are to be used on CAT7 cables
