16 ports HDMI patch panel

Hi there,


I'm trying to setup a rack that will help me with recording and broadcasting IT conferences.
I want to hide all the ugly HDMI to h.264 encoding and HDMI splitters hardware, so I will host everything in a 19" rack, and I'm looking for a 16 ports HDMI patch panel or face that could be adapted to a 19" rack box.
I found some from $150 to $250, but would like to find something cheaper, as we're on a shoestring budget.
I thought of going the blank panel plus keystones way, because it would be cheaper, but I'm afraid it would not be sturdy enough.


So, would anyone have any recommandation on an HDMI patch panel?

Thanks in advance.

Can one end be terminated with RJ45? Those are super cheap! What are you seeing?

I haven't used HDMI keystones, but I don't know if I'd worry about them being not sturdy enough. It's not like you're really pulling on them that much anyways.
