For audiovisual, industrial and consumer applications, HDBaseT is designed to work with both LAN infrastructure (CatX cables) and fiber optics.  HDBaseT over LAN cables allows for transmissions of up to 100m/328ft, with near-zero latency and no compromise on performance.  It also allows for several hops of 100m/328ft for even longer distances.

HDBaseT over fiber optics enables much longer transmissions (from several hundred meters to several kilometers), either over multi-mode fiber (MMF) or single-mode fiber (SMF), allowing for greater infrastructure flexibility.
