Integrated wall plates target schools
June 19, 2008 -- At InfoComm 2008, Cables To Go introduced its RapidRun brushed aluminum wall plates, designed especially for educational institutions.
Part of the company's RapidRun modular cabling system, the wall plates enable an interactive learning environment, allowing teachers to easily connect to different A/V components such projectors, interactive white boards, computers, and/or cable/satellite signals.
The RapidRun system supports multiple signals over a single cable. According to the company, when used with multi-connector wall plates, the system provides schools with ready access to different components and signal types.
The wall plates are currently available in six different configurations, with more to be added throughout this year. Current plates include different combinations of connectors for composite video, PC video, S-video, 3.5 mm stereo audio, left and right stereo audio, and keystone ports for cable and network connections.
The wall plates provide multiple signal connections in a single box for different classroom applications. Fashioned in brushed aluminum, the plates are billed as more durable and aesthetically pleasing than standard wall plates.
