Video wall plates can be used in homes, but are also popular in offices. They allow you to conceal wires, giving your office a more professional appearance. They also facilitate storing equipment in separate rooms or areas from where you will be making presentations, freeing up space in your conference room as well as eliminating the possibility that a client will trip over a bundle of cables.

Home and Office Uses of Video Wall Plates
There are many available options for video wall plates, depending on what you will need in any single room. For example, you may have a server set up in a media closet, out of sight from your clients. If you will only be using your conference room to make video presentations, then you may just need an S-Video wall plate.

On the other hand, you may want to transfer both video and sound into a particular room. This can be done using either an RCA video wall player or a coaxial cable video wall plate. If you have a home theater or a room in which you will be showing clients multimedia presentations that require audio, storing equipment in one room and running the wiring through the walls is one option that you may consider for its clean appearance.

Another thing to consider is whether or not you will be doing the installation work on your own. If it is for your office, you will most likely be hiring a contractor--but if it is for your home and you are fairly handy, you may be able to do work on your own. In this case, check the connections on the back of the video wall plates. Some plates have connections on both the front and the back, while others require soldering in back.
