It's well known that 1.8 meters is the longest you can reliably transfer video data without signal degradation. To transfer further than that you need a repeater. There are cables with repeaters built in but they get VERY expensive.

I am not an official representative of Dell. I do work for the company. I will not reveal private company information, I will not violate NDAs, and I will not give you any trade secrets. All posts are my personal opinion based on my anecdotal experience.
