    Are there any plasma display models that are designed to be built into a wall rather than mounted on it?

    Presumably, if you tried this with a normal plasma display you would need to provide for some means of cooling/venting?

    Thanks

    I downloaded a technical manual from Pioneer for the 433/503MXE and it had loads of detailed instructions on mounting the plasma, including embedding into a wall.

    Take a gander over at Pioneer and see what you can find..

    Hello Ziglar

    No 'In wall' purpose built units I know off - a bit too small a market I guess.

    With care and lots of pre design you can flush mount pretty much any display you fancy - getting cool air to the rear of the display is one tricky bit; how to mount it, get it cabled, gain access for service and have a neat border around the aperture are just as much fun at the planning stage.

    Best regards

    Joe
