I used EuroCables to build all the connections/boxes for our TV studio. They were brilliant. Want to use them again but don't have a project.

We use Euronetwork for this - somewhat pricey, but custom made to the right length. Wall plates, HDMI, audio video & USB cables from cabling specialists

I'd ask KPMS to make one up, pretty much the same price as buying those ready made ones linked above. PM if you want an email address instead.

Out of interest why would you use wallplates? We have never bothered installing them in any of our rooms we just do it all over CAT5 with an adapter balun this is for HDMI, Composite, VGA and Audio, one simple cable to run per device and its much smaller and comes in any length

How are you running 3 video, and audio over 1 cat5?

Read that as a single cable, rather than one cable type hehe. Wouldn't you still need some wall box though, or would you just run the cat5 right to pc etc?

Above each projector we have 4 CAT6 points and by the teachers desk we have 6 CAT6 points, this allows, if they require, HDMI (2x cat cables), VGA (1x cat cable) and Composite (1x cat) and then one for the PC and one for a phone if required (we are only just starting to use IP Phones) so we just run a patch lead to the PC and have the little converter box by it and its working well, have about 20 rooms like this now and its great.

Doing that is kinda expensive from what I've looked at!
19th January 2013, 09:51 PM #26
Costs us about £45 for just sorting the VGA out as tbh that is all you need in most cases, the component extender was another £7 so can be cheap. HDMI is the expensive one so far but we haven't had a need to use it yet but have one on-standby just incase we do need a bluray player over it etc...

We have to have USB also, as they're interactive projectors we're putting in now. And audio. Plus HDMI makes sense, as they support it, as do our newer laptops, so a switch makes sense...

You can still run USB over Cat 5 as if you are planning to run the USB over 5m you need a booster box anyway to make them work correctly.

Yes, but the costs are mounting then, meaning that the Vision TechConnect stuff is cheaper.
