HDMI cable types

There are five types of HDMI cables sanctioned by the HDMI Licensing organization (www.hdmi.org).

Male Cables and Long Runs
HDMI cables use male plugs at both ends, and all HDMI ports on the equipment have female sockets.

Cable runs that are longer than 25 feet for 1080p signals and longer than 49 feet for 1080i require booster boxes or active cables with built-in amplifiers. See HDMI.
