Last week on the Milestek blog, we talked a bit about our custom VGA wall plates. The active wall plate sets we’ve designed for component and composite video (over CAT5E/CAT6 Ethernet cables) capabilities feature a similar set of benefits — but for a different set of needs.
CAT5E/CAT6 Ethernet cables are an excellent way to be able to run component and composite video over long distances at just a fraction of the price of regular cable extension — without sacrificing quality. In fact, these wall plate sets can extend AV signals up to 300 feet over a single CAT5E Ethernet cable or CAT6 Ethernet cable.
The wall plates are ideal for component and composite AV setups where your video source is in a separate room from your HDTV or other video display (it’s especially ideal when you need the source device to be securely located in a locked room).
So we’re proud to sell four different component video wall plate sets. Let’s take a look:
Like each of our CAT5E and CAT6 active wall plate kits, this one can extend your component video signal up to 300 feet. It includes a 110-type rear punch down connector for easy in-wall installation, as well as a source wall plate, display wall plate, and mounting wall plates and screws. Component video transmits in sparkling quality, including Y/Pb/Pr up to 1080i @ 164 feet, plus up to 720p @ 246 feet for HDTV. No software or adapters are required.
This wall plate set is similar, but it also includes audio support for RCA SPDIF digital connections.
Again, this wall plate set boasts identical features as the others, except for one key added capability: composite video at 100ohm and stereo audio at 600ohm impedance.
This wall plate set supports an extraordinary range of component video signals with stereo audio support, including 480p up to 500 feet, 720p up to 400 feet, 1080i up to 350 feet, 1080p/24Hz up to 300 feet, and 1080p/60Hz up to 300 feet.
