Lots of cable assembly manufacturers have talked about field termination kits for HDMI but no one has as yet (as far as I know) released a system that will deliver a 'certified' cable.

There are a couple of installation cabling 'system' manufacturers who provide pre terminated 'runner' cables at pre cut lengths plus screw on flying leads with various connectors attached that do provide for HDMI - though again none of it is certified by HDMI.org.

There are termination kits that allow you to fit a new head to a damaged cable - though its an extremely fiddly and time consuming job and often doesn't provide a working solution when your trying to send 1080p over the cable.

Extending HDMI over Dual CAT6 is your best option if you have long or tricky cable runs to negotiate.
