For raw cable from respected manufacturers, they publish loss/length/frequency charts (losses per foot of length by frequency). Belden, Canare, and others make this information freely available. Usually the cables are good for 50' without significant loss. Now that's signal loss only. In typical broadcast scenarios (live sports events, newscasts, etc), these signal lines can be 300' or longer. The engineers know how strong the source signal is and what the threshold for the receiver is and can plan for the signal loss accordingly.

Another area of concern is the shielding. Better quality cables have better shielding, so the occasional trip near a power cable or signal wire won't distort the picture.

All that being said, I don't know what raw cable Monster uses for its products, so I can't say for sure -- but in a good environment (away from power cables, no splitters, etc), up to 50' is probably okay.

Hope this helps.
