How to I extend the length of my Cable?

I see pictures of people using a pulley system on the ceiling to get the wires off the floor, but I never understood how on earth they are making their cable 15-20 feet long? Could anyone give me more info on this? Seems like I'd need to buy an extention HDMI and an extention USB 3.0 wire? Where can I get these?

Yeah you have to buy extension cables for the hdmi and the usb cables.

Make absolutely SURE that they are ACTIVE USB3.0 extension cables.  They appear to work the best.  If you want to extend the HDMI cable then you will also need an ACTIVE HDMI coupler as well.

They have them on Amazon.
