Salamander Designs will introduce a new family of premium high-performance TV mounting systems at the 2008 International Consumer Electronics Show. The new line will provide space-saving support for all varieties and sizes of plasma and LCD flat-panel displays.
The mounts will be available in several series: Dyno, PilotMotion, Flexo, Plano, Luna Ceiling and Zoom Desk mounts, plus Synchro accessories. The Flexo A/V Series mounts also support front speakers, and a speaker bracket is available for Dyno mounts.
Salamander’s Dyno Series consists of four dynamic, articulating wall mounts. Multiple arms, a hinge and ball joints allow screens to be simultaneously rotated, tilted and pivoted, eliminating the issue of on-screen light reflections. Weightless ZeroForce Tilt mechanisms ensure effortless maneuverability. Additional features include an anti-theft lock for added security, a clip for cable management, and extensive wings for mounting flexibility. The mounts’ single-stud assembly allows them to be installed in corners, and a pull-cord release makes it easy to remove a TV, should it be necessary.
The Dyno 102 Medium supports up to 100 pounds, making it ideal for 23-42 inch flat-panel screens. It swivels 90 degrees left and right, 15 degrees up and down, and integrates well with Salamander’s Synchro Wall Cover to create a distinctive home cinema environment with all cables hidden. The Synchro Wall Shelf can be added for a finishing touch and to store audio/visual equipment.
Salamander’s PilotMotion Series consists of two motorized wall mounts and one table-top mount that respond to instructions from supplied remote controls. All feature a quiet, smooth rotator mechanism and weightless ZeroForce Tilt mechanisms that promote maneuverability as the mounts respond to remote-control instructions to rotate the screen up to 30 degrees to the left or right.
The PilotMotion 100 TableTop model provides maximum screen positioning flexibility for table-top use with flat-panel TVs from 32 to 52 inches with a maximum weight of 110 lbs. The remote-controlled mount rotates up to 30 degrees left and right, offers three height adjustments, and includes a universal mounting-hole pattern. The programmable remote can be pre-set to a favorite screen position.
The Flexo Series consists of five sleek, low-profile wall mounts capable of tilting as needed using weightless ZeroForce Tilt mechanisms. An advanced click system makes it safe and easy to install TVs, and a pull-cord release makes removing TVs equally easy. Additional features include an anti-theft lock for added security, extensive wings for maximum mounting flexibility and, in some models, the ability to accommodate speakers. The Flexo A/V 200 XL, for example, is a universal wall-mount system with a fully integrated audio/video capability. It can support most large flat-panel TVs from 42 to 60 inches, up to 175 lbs., as well as most on-wall left, right and center-channel speakers. A Lift-n-Load feature simplifies installation and angle adjustment.
The Luna Ceiling Series consists of five dynamic, articulating flat-panel models ideal for any room in which a ceiling-mounted display is needed. Capable of 360-degree screen rotation, Luna Ceiling mounts also feature double arms and an extra hinge-point for maximum flexibility, eliminating the problem of light reflections for optimal working comfort. Screen heights are easily adjusted, and a clip for cable management is supplied with each mount. The Luna Ceiling 100 Small is a single-pole model ideal for bedrooms or any room in which ceiling assembly is desired. It can accommodate 13 to 26-inch flat-panel TVs weighing up to 40 lbs.
And finally, the Zoom Desk Series consists of two single- and dual-screen desk mounts capable of 360-degree screen rotation. Double arms and an extra hinge-point offer maximum flexibility, eliminating the problem of on-screen light reflections for optimal working comfort. The screens’ heights are easily adjusted. Additional features include a secure desk clamp, and a clip for cable management.
