USB and audio jack faceplate
We've tidied away our computers under desks in our ict rooms which makes everything look nice and gives a lot more room etc, but does leave us with problems when it comes to plugging in usb sticks or headphones/microphones.
What I'd like to do is have a faceplate on each desk with a usb socket and 3.5 audio sockets that runs to the machine.
I've seen some things around but nothing like this and most seem to be for av setups for projectors etc. There's also the modular system but I can't find any usb one to fit this. Making it myself seems a bit of a time consumer.
Anyone seen anything like this around that would fit or I could adapt?
Thanks as always

What about using a usb hub? We have this and also use USB Mics...They work quite well....

Just a quick update for people searching:
I managed to track down some from euronetwork.co.uk- made them custom for me at around £8 each (with 2 usb ports and 2 audio jacks for mic and headphones)

we do something similar where all our PC's are in 2U racks and they are stored in a central data centre and then we trunk through to each ict room using USB/VGA/PS2 over cat5e and it works well. We have a similar issue what we do is buy some face plates from datapro and then we tie it in with our trunking and it works really well. Highly recommended and if you buy in bulk you get very good deals.

For wall boxes and faceplates you can't beat these guys, little on the expensive side, but they do every combination imaginable! The pre-wired ones are handy for DIY whiteboard installs.

Datacable do something like this. 01535 690075 and ask for Martin. I think they can customise them as well. No idea about price though

Did anybody ever find any good USB/Audio desktop mounts or faceplates? We're looking at doing the same thing this summer.

I can't vouch for the supplier as it's not one I've used, but these seem good and cheap: Eclipse Computers - Product Details
