I want to set up a Logitech ConferenceCam CC300e, but the cable (6-pin Mini-Din) will need to be ran across the room. I could not find anything on the length limitation of this cable type, anyone have any experience?

Lorex indicates that DIN cables are rated for up to 300 feet.

Such cables are not twisted pair and 300 feet seems a stretch to me. Another source I saw said 25 feet max which (a) seems more like what I have seen and (b) should stretch across most rooms.

Many sources indicating that 300ft is the maximum without signal loss.

I have not seen in normal use that kind of cable that long.

For 300 feet, you normally need up to 4 sets of 2 wires independently twisted (Ethernet).

It may be possible; I have not seen it; and I would not do it.
