The Foothill Ranch, Calif.-based manufacturer ATEN has added to its line of connectivity solutions through the introduction of its latest wall plate products.
ATEN’s new VE156, VE606 and VE808 wall plates feature a decora-style industrial design to allow the products to blend into residential and commercial environments. The products are capable of sending VGA, HDMI and DVI signals distances up to 150 feet.
“Professional audio and video applications across a range of industries are requiring new ways to deliver and manage signals while concealing cables and other equipment,” notes Jack Wang, CEO of ATEN. “Our line of wall plate extenders supports long range transmissions, delivering a reliable VGA, DVI and HDMI experience without compromising performance.”

Some of the other benefits of the wall plates include:
- Power from either the transmission or receiver end
- The wall plates hide messy looking cable runs
- The wall plates are compatible with other ATEN products
- LED indicators communicate system status
- Provides connectivity options for external stereo speakers
