Running HDMI cable

This is a side topic to my "hiding the equipment stack" posted previous.

Can you buy bulk HDMI cable and install ends on it or must HDMI cable already be made up?

Also considering some of the CAT5 solutions like the receiver and transmitter combo below. I already have two CAT5E runs to most rooms and I would venture to say that a 75-100ft HDMI cable alone would possibly be more than the price of the extenders. I am concerend with signal degradation and loss using this solution.

Never really seen bulk HDMI cables in the way you describe.

Cat5 is becoming more and more popular to make those long cable runs without spending ridiculous money on long HDMI throws.

100ft. over Cat5 will carry 1080p just fine in the average house. If you go longer than 100ft. or will be running cable around a lot of EMF sources, then I would step up to Cat6 for extra insurance.
