The Hideout multimedia outlet hides and protects connections for mixed- media cabling applications in network and telephony markets. The outlet is constructed so that furniture can be moved flush against the faceplate without interference or damage to the connection. Four copper and two optical fiber, or four optical-fiber connections per outlet are possible. Faceplates are available in four colors or in stainless steel. The outlet accepts snap-in, color-coded icons to identify each cable by function.
