    Actually, it looks like a mini display port vs HDMI (I don't believe the iMac has ever come with HDMI, just the mac mini.)


    A display port to HDMI adapter, and then a long HDMI cable would work. I use one from mono price. I remember some computers couldn't also output audio via the display port, so be sure you get an adapter that supports audio if you iMac supports it.


    Here are the models that support audio over the display port:

    MacBook (Mid 2010) and later
    MacBook Air (Late 2010) and later
    MacBook Pro (Mid 2010) and later
    Mac mini (Mid 2010) and later
    iMac (Late 2009) and later
    Mac Pro (Mid 2010)
