If your TV or monitor is mounted or placed close to the wall, you can use L-type extenders to avoid physical damage to HDMI cables.
Sometimes, even with enough ports available, HDMI connectivity for multiple devices can be difficult to manage. For starters, the HDMI ports on your TV or monitor won’t always be on the same side or face the same direction. Additionally, a wide range of devices and accessories might need HDMI connectivity - such as HDMI cables, dongles, adapters and more - and one might end up blocking ports that are too close. If your display is placed or mounted close to the walls, your HDMI cables can get damaged if they’re bent for extended time. To maintain easy access to all your ports, you can use an L-shaped HDMI extender to provide easy access to HDMI ports. Here are some options available on Amazon that promise a good mix of features and specifications.
With gold plated contacts, the Storite adapter ensures corrosion free performance for years. A PVC jacket around the body makes it a durable option. The design allows you to convert a standard socket into an upward or backward facing port. This connector supports up to 4K resolution so that you can experience high quality entertainment without any downgrading. With Audio Return Channel (ARC) and HDMI Ethernet Channel (HEC) compatibility, you won’t need to add any additional cables if you already have the correct ones. The connector is also compatible with HDCP to enable seamless streaming for your favourite streaming platforms.
The Sadow extender features grip treads that make it easy to plug and unplug the device. However with a minimal build, you won’t feel the need to unplug it repeatedly. Its design uses gold plating on the connectors for enhanced wear protection. If you’re looking to enjoy 3D content over your HDMI connection, this model won’t create any issues for that purpose. Pick one or more depending on how many HDMI ports on your TV or monitor need an L-shaped connector.
Measuring 2cm by 2cm by 1.6cm, the Seahaven HDMI extension is perfect for compact spaces. It features ridges on its design that improves grip without needing repeated tugging. With gold plated connectors it promises enhanced resistance to wear and corrosion over the years. This extender only supports up to 1080p transmission, so if you’re planning to experience 4K content over HDMI you’ll need to go with an alternative. The design helps avoid any unwanted stress on your HDMI cables.
With 4K at 30Hz supported, the Fedus HDMI extender keeps your high-resolution content smooth and detailed. This model supports Audio Return Channel connectivity, allowing you to use it seamlessly with home theatre setups. Additionally, it also supports Ethernet over HDMI, so that you can keep using your HDMI Ethernet cables. With 48-bit colour depth supported, you do not have to worry about any colour degradation in the final output due to the connector. Your high-end audio content does not lose any immersion thanks to Dolby True HD 7.1 audio support.
