Extender Need to boost a plenum HDMI (fiber) cable that is 131 feet long

    Our church uses an Epson Pro L1200U Projector. We use ProPresenter software. The HDMI output from the PC video card is sent to a HDMI splitter/switch. From there the signal is split, one to a flat-screen TV (6-foot HDMI cable), and the second split is to a 131-foot HDMI Plenum (fiber) cable that goes to the projector. We are having issues with the signal to the projector being lost or flickering at times. Sometimes the projector will not work at all. After speaking with Epson Support, they recommended a HDMI booster that is compatible with our HDMI Plenum cable. The cable was purchased from The Projector People, model #CPAOCH131. What would you recommend?

    Hello Alan,

    Thank you for reaching out on our HelpCenter.

    Although we cannot attest to specific compatibility with your Epson Pro L1200U Projector and/or Projector People, model #CPAOCH131 HDMI Plenum (fiber) cable, HDMI protocol is pretty straightforward, and so the following HDMI boosters may work for you:

    Alternatively you could replace your long fiber HDMI cable with an HDMI video extender over CATx. Such a video extender would probably offer you consistent performance. Make sure the extender you choose supports the actual cable distance between the PC and the projector, as well as the specific resolution you're running.

    Hope this helps!
