The Leviton Recessed Duplex Receptacle with QuickPort plate mounts flush to the wall with two AC outlets and the capacity for six QuickPort connections that are also recessed into the wall. The AC outlets are ideal for supplying power to your TV and cable or satellite receiver. QuickPort snap-in connectors (sold separately), are available for your audio and video connections. The package comes with a plastic electrical box; the receptacles fit inside the box and have a built-in wallplate for a flawless, flush-mount installation. Your connections will fit perfectly in this unobtrusive design that will let you centralize your connections and manage them from one location.

Snap-in connectors are designed to work with Keystone, QuickPort, and Modular style wallplates. These wallplates typically have from one to six inputs (ports) for snap-in connectors. Installing a snap-in wallplate allows you to make wiring connections and runs inside your wall. You can use various snap-in connectors to customize your snap-in wallplate with telephones, networking, audio/video (AV) components, speakers and other cable connections. Having a central connection point on the wall is a great way to add a professional finish to your installation and is a simple way to manage your in-wall wiring setup that provides quicker and easier terminations.

Hall Research EQ-HDMI-DP HDMI Active Extender Decora Plate with ExtenderAchieve a professionally installed look with the use of Hall Research’s HDMI Decora Plate Extender. This decorative wall plate not only provides a standard HDMI plug connection for any HDMI device, its active equalization cleans the signal traveling through long cable runs. Fully compatible with HDMI versions 1.2a and 1.3 and the unit is self powered and requires no additional power supply.

The EQ-HDMI-DP can be used on the source end of your home entertainment center as a booster (to push HDMI up to 50 ft), however, it is better suited as a receiver on the remote end of the cable where it acts as an active equalizer to display the image on your display. In that case, you will be better suited to use the less expensive Passive Pass-Through HDMI Connector on the source end and be able to extend the video to 65 feet or longer. Read more
