HDMI or DVI over ethernet?

Could I use a passive DVI over an ethernet extender for an HDMI output if I convert the HDMI at the source, to DVI via a simple adapter first? I ask because I do not want to power the HDMI over the ethernet TX device (There is nowhere to provide power and I will not use the Sync power for EDID).

I have a DVI output that needs to go to an HDMI input over 70'. @Joe Fernand

Think it would be simpler to list the devices and signal format you are aiming to connect over the CAT cable.

These are medical imaging devices.
A Fluoroscopy C-Arm has HDMI out and needs to connect to a PC that uses a DVI frame grabber. Distance is 70' and we cannot use a bulky DVI cable with adapter.

You would have to test the image quality of the extender you use and anything suitable will usually require power at the Transmitter (Source) end of the cable run - some HDBT Extenders are compression free depending on the format of the Source signal.

Could you use a Fibre HDMI cable? They can be thin and flexible, though again you require power either from the Source or with an external 'USB' type 5v inserter?

Drop me a PM if you want some options to try out in the lab.
