2 way HDMI switch box and 10m HDMI 4k cable run - advice.

Hi,

I want to connect my computer to my TV via HDMI and have
a switchbox between my monitor and TV. There would be
a 10m run to my TV via HDMI.

I would like this to handle 4k.

The question is what type of cable to get.

So my specific questions:

1. What type of HDMI cable do I need?
2. Is it too long for a normal HDMI cable - do I need to get an Active HDMI cable?
3. Do I need to get a fiber optic HDMI cable - or is this overkill?
3. I have saw somewhere that somebody damaged equipment by a cable run that was too long. Is this possible - or am I under the quota being only 10m

Thanks,

Ward.
