I would try the passive first...that way you dont spend the extra money and have to power the active unit in perpetuity.
A 1080p (60Hz) signal can be transmitted up to 50 ft.
A 1080i (60Hz) signal can be transmitted up to 100 ft.
I ran the passive from the basement in the center of a 3 story home to the attic then dropped it down and it was fine...use good quality solid copper cat 6..
Note, its important not to interrupt the cat6 by using a punch panel, wall plate, or coupler, all these things attenuate the signal and will cause problems.
