The HDMI Wall Plate is the ideal solution to eliminate messy cables hanging out of holes in your wall. Their useful design will fit any standard wall mount holes, very similar to those which would fit an AC outlet or light switch. As well as eliminating messy cables, the HDMI wall plate is also an ideal extension solution for your cables, ideal for use in your home and business. How does it work? It can often be confusing when electrical items are given names that are created from a range of letters and numbers.
HDMI stands for High Definition Multimedia Interface and involves the transition of digital data. A HDMI wall mount is designed to simply allow HDMI ports remote access to HD displays and other media sources. The wall mount also utilises a HDMI connector, maintaining a high quality signal. Most of the standard and original HDMI wall plates feature a high quality fully populated gold plated HDMI female socket on both sides of the wall plate. They will also support the full specifications and performance of all types of HDMI cables.
Unlike many wall plates, the HDMI wall plate is extremely quick and easy to install on any type of wall, as its angled designed allows the plate to slot into the wall with ease. When installing your HDMI wall plate, make sure all the electricity in your household is switched off, allowing you to install your new device safely. To successfully install your wall plate, your tool kit should contain the following items a tape measure, masking tape, sheetrock saw, screwdriver and pencil and paper. If purchased from a good quality well established supplier, your wall plate should also include a 110 degree connector and a step by step easy guide on how to install.
Where should I get one from? HDMI wall plates are available from a wide range of high street and online stores. However, choosing a well established, highly rated supplier will also enable you to get full support and advice, should you have any problems after you have installed your new device. Many electrical suppliers have technicians on hand 7 days a week who are available through phone and email. Alternatively, for those who feel less confident with handling electrical items, you could always arrange for a technician to visit your home or business to fix the problem.
As technology continues to grow, your new wall plate will also support HDMI 1.4, 3D televisions and any other new devices that may come into your household, making the HDMI wall plate a great investment. Depending on your cable needs and requirements, HDMI wall mounts can feature either a single or double connection point. Depending on your decor they are also available in black and white plastic or aluminium for a chrome effect. When purchasing your wall mount it may be useful to also pick up a few HDMI cables, as you never know when your next digital device is going to enter your home.
