HDMI -WP21 Wall Plate Kit by Ethereal Expands Options

New kit goes beyond Ethereal's HDMI-WP11 Wall Plate Kit to accommodate multiple HDMI components in same system

HOLLY HILL, FLA., JULY 10, 2007: Ethereal Home Theater introduces the industry -first HDMI -WP21 wall plate kit. The package consists of one HDMI -WP1 wall plate and one HDMI -WP2 wall plate to achieve the best possible performance from multiple HDMI components in the same home theater system.


Ethereal's HDMI -WP1 provides the highest -quality connection point for in -wall CL rated HDMI cables. It utilizes a trace equalized circuit board with the gold -plated HDMI terminals mounted on the top and front edges. This design guarantees that the digital signal path will not be affected by the hard angles normally associated with bringing in HDMI out from the wall. The innovative wall plate also includes an HDMI line conditioner for a cleaner, more robust interface.

The HDMI -WP2 features the same circuit board as the HDMI -WP1, with the addition of Ethereal's HDMI Buss Equalization circuit. The buss EQ helps to stabilize the data transfer over longer distances, and allows systems having more than three HDMI components function with significantly fewer errors.

The HDMI -WP21 is among the products in Ethereal's exciting new DTW Series of advanced HDMI technology accessories. Designed by and for custom installers, the HDMI -WP21 is manufactured in the United States.
