Visio Stencils - Audio/Video Connectors

Author:W. Brian Dill
You know the "For Dummies" series.
You want to know more Visio.
Put two and 2 together...
Show Until:2008-12-31

I couldn't find any free Visio stencils for A/V connectors on the web, so I spent a couple of hours and made my own. I figured I would share my creations with the world. Perhaps this will save you some time when diagramming audio/video components.

This stencil is freeware. If you enjoy it, please drop me a line and let me know. Better yet, send me a copy of your Visio file so I can see your handy work.

If you have suggestions for improvements or additions, I welcome your feedback. If you enjoy these stencils, please email me a zipped copy of YOUR finished Visio diagram so I can see how it is being used. Based on ideas of your diagrams, I may be able to improve upon my stencils. Thanks!

Update 2006-04-25 - Version 1.01 I've added XLR, MIDI and BNC connector (thanks to Mark A. Wilson for the BNC).
Update 2007-04-04 - Version 1.02 Added DB 9 and DB 25 by popular request, even though I don't really see how they qualify as AV. :-)

DB 9 and DB 25 Connectors - Jan (2006-08-25 05:53:07)
Hi Mate Do you have stencils for above somewhere? Thanks Jan jan.prinsloo@optusnet.com.au

your stencil - song (2006-06-08 11:02:11)
I love it, thanks.

2002 version - Glenn (2006-05-15 11:40:47)
Do you have a version that will work on 2002? Other than that these look great!

Ohhhh, I wish - Jeff (2006-05-10 04:39:58)
These look great. Any chance of getting a version for Visio 2002?

Thanks - JJ (2006-05-01 04:55:10)
I've been looking for such stencils for a while and found it finaly on your page. 9-pin Dsub, 15-pin HDsub, USB-A, USB-B, SATA, Kbd, Mouse, etc, etc, and other connectors the PC world is something else I'm looking for. If I have to make my own and will send them to you. Alternativly it could be great if you had a link page to others making similiar stencils.

Thanks! - Danny (2006-04-30 12:19:07)
These are great! I am spec'ing out a patch bay setup, and was getting frustrated with the result (no real way, other than labeling, to label the connects clearly in visio). Now I can make a quick glance at my diagram and all the interconnects are easily identifiable. Awesome!

Awesome - Rakesh Patel (2006-04-21 11:26:54)
Thanks very much! I wish i could make stuff like this. I cant draw!!! You're a lifesaver

a/v stencil - Dan (2006-04-02 19:55:32)
Brilliant, thank you! Let me add HD15 & DB9 connectors to the wish list...

Hey man. These stencil are great!!! Not many people in Malaysia are aware of it. I was just wondering if its suitable to be used on GTK' DIA which runs on Linux. Let me know if you need any help on this. I think publishing it on sourceforge.net would be great idea. Regards, Samir Ahshrup iceman9001@yahoo.com
