Do We Really Need High End Cable For 4k And Above?

Hello guys,

One of our distributors has been beating on us about the cable we use for our IP cameras. We've been putting in some minimum compliance Cat6 and has been working just fine for 3 and 4MP cameras. They say that without using high quality cable, they are claiming that 4K and above resolution cameras will have a hard time performing. Are they just trying to sell us on high grade wire or is there something that we need to be educated on?

Thanks
