  • 5 Reasons Why You Should Include Your Logo On A Wall Plate

    Printing your logo onto an AV Wall Plate has many benefits. Here is a list of 5 Reasons why you should have your logo printed onto a wall plate:

    5. Service or Support

    What better way to help someone when plugging in their AV equipment than contact details printed directly onto the AV Wall Plate

    4. Repeat Business

    Every business owner looks for ways to grow their business. One of the easiest ways to do this is by getting your details in places so your customers have an easy option to contact you when they require more AV work done.

    3. Branding

    Wall Plate logos are a discrete way to get brand name exposure with being “in your face”. You decide how discrete you would like your logo to be.

    2. Ease of Re-ordering

    Why not incorporate a part number onto the wall plate for ease of re-ordering by your customers. Your logo together with a discretely printed part number can ease the burden on your customers when they need to re-order the same AV Wall Plate.

    1. It's FREE!

    Right now it’s FREE! There is no charge to setup your logo in our system and no charge to print onto any wall plate.

    For more information on how to setup your logo for printing then see our Logo Requirements and Setup Process

  • Interactive Whiteboard Wall Plates

    VGA and USB Wall Plate

    In order to operate an Interactive Whiteboard in a school or office, it is important to properly connect a Laptop or Desktop computer.

    At ki digital, we design, manufacture and assemble AV Wall Plates to be used for just this purpose. In their simplest form, many Interactive Whiteboards require at least one Video Connection (this is usually VGA or HDMI) and also a USB Connection.

    Audio Visual Wall Plates such as WP506 (1 x VGA Female to Female Connection and 1 x USB 2.0 Type-B Female to Female Connection) will allow a Laptop or Desktop computer to be quickly and easily connected to the Interactive Whiteboard.

     

    Newer Interactive Whiteboards incorporate a HDMI connection as well as a VGA (HD15) connection. Many AV Installers will run both of these cables in the wall in order to give the teacher or operator a choice of connection. Together with an optional 3.5mm Stereo Audio Connection, the AV Wall Plate may look like this.

    VGA, 3.5mm Audio, HDMI and USB Wall Plate

    How to connect a Wall Plate to an Interactive Whiteboard?
    Once AV connections have been decided, the next step is to work out how these cables will be terminated. This is often dictated by the length of Cables that are required.

    HDMI
    For HDMI, it is simply a matter of running a good quality HDMI Cable (Male to Male) and plugging this in to the Female HDMI Connection on the rear of the Wall Plate.

    VGA
    For VGA, pre-made Male VGA Leads can plugged in to the Female VGA Connection on the rear of the Wall Plate. If raw HD15 Cable is installed in the wall then the VGA Connection on the rear of the Wall Plate will need to be terminated with a Screw Terminal VGA Connection.

    USB
    USB Cabling requirements will change depending on the length of Cable required. For Cable lengths less than 5m, no USB Extenders are required. For lengths over 5m then at least one USB Active Extender is required. More information of USB Active Extenders can be read here. It is important to consider the length of USB Cable that will possibly be used by the operator of the Whiteboard.

     

    Change the labels on the Wall Plate
    It is also possible to change the default labels that ship with our Wall Plates to give the Connections better meaning and make it easier for the teacher or operator to connect their computer to the Interactive Whiteboard.

    WP570 with Changed Labels

    We can print the text "Whiteboard" instead of "USB".

     

    Add a Logo onto the Wall Plate
    Finally, add a Logo onto the top or bottom of the Wall Plate for repeat business, service or support:

    WP570 with Logo

    Examples of our AV Wall Plates can be found here in our Wall Plate Showcase.

    Let us manufacture an Interactive Whiteboard Wall Plate exactly to YOUR requirements.

  • AV Wall Plates to match your Samsung LED TV

    One of the biggest Samsung LED TVquestions we get at ki digital is what AV Connections do I need for my Wall Plate when mounting my new Samsung LED TV on the wall?

    The answer unfortunately is not always black and white.

    It’s important to match the connections of the back of the TV but for many home installations, matching ALL of the AV connections on the back of the TV is an overkill as many of them will never be used. When working out what cabling you should install in the wall cavity and what Custom AV Wall Plates are required it is a good idea to start with a list of the connections that will be used for your existing AV Equipment.

    Now is the time to future-proof your setup!

    If you are building a home then you’re most likely at the stage where the Plasterboard hasn’t been installed yet… Great! You have the option to go crazy and if cost permits, install all of the AV Cables you will need easily.

    If you are renovating then you’re most likely at the stage where holes have been made (or are about to be made) in the Plasterboard to cater for your new AV Cables.

    Ok… I’ve made a list all of the AV Connections that I need for my existing AV Equipment but what about Connections that I may need in the future?

    Formats like HDMI are always evolving, getting faster to support the bandwidth of new TVs like the Samsung LED TVs. Buying a HDMI Cable today will unfortunately not be suitable to use with your TV in 10 years time. You want to get the best quality AV Connection out of your TV today so it still makes sense to install HDMI cables in your wall cavity.

    Cat 6a is your friend! Multiple Cat 6a RJ45 Cables (or Cat 7 if your budget stretches) should be installed as a way of future-proofing your AV Setup. Most AV signals can be converted to run over Cat 6/Cat 6a cables. These are called Baluns. They are often run over long distances in a commercial environment but for domestic uses they can be installed to utilise existing cable in a wall cavity.

    Clipsal AV Wall Plate with HDMI and Component

    Clipsal AV Wall Plate with Component and Composite Video combined

    Even though HDMI is the preferred choice of AV Connection, it is a good idea to have some “backup” AV Connections for gear that doesn’t use HDMI. We can manufacture a Custom AV Wall Plate that matches many of the connections found on the back of a Samsung LED TV. This includes Component connections that can also be used as Composite Video. This Clipsal 2000 AV Wall Plate is clearly marked with both Component (Pr, Pb, Y) and Composite (Video) labels so the user knows that the connection can be used for either purpose… just like the connections on the Samsung LED TV.

    Of course every TV has a different combination of AV Connections so we are happy to create a wall plate to suit your requirements. HDMI, Component, USB, Data and Composite AV are connections that can all be combined onto a single AV Wall Plate.
