Has anyone done 4K over cat5?

I am guessing this can be done for a lot of money because of the bandwidth needed for the video.

I am wanting to have all receivers in a closet about 75ft away.

My current setup I use the Monoprice units that send HDMI over two cat6 cables and it also has IR with it and they work great.

I am looking for ideas to upgrade to 4K.

intuition says no, the 4k requirements are pretty strict on the C61k, but since its just converting the HDMI signal into a different signal and back again i could be wrong.

Look up a brand called Gefen they really great products. They are a little expensive but well worth it.

I've researched it and cat5 will work fine but I would use cat6

It depends on the converters, as long as they are rated for 4k it should work, but obviously the better the cable the better the likelihood of functionality
