Peerless Industries, the industry leader in professional-grade audio/visual mounting solutions, introduced a Motorized Wall Mount (MM860) that allows remote-controlled position adjustment of tilt, pivot, and extension of a flat-panel screen up to 60in. and 180lbs. from any viewing location.
The MM860 was designed for commercial applications that require flexible viewing angles, such as hotel ballrooms and lobbies, corporate conference rooms, lecture halls, bars, clubs, and other locations where glare or reflection can hinder viewing or remote movement of the screen is needed. Using a universal IR remote or RS-232-compatible touchpanel control automation system, viewers can move the screen to a desired viewing angle or to one of the pre-set positions that the user can establish with the MM860. With a push of a button, the MM860 smoothly extends the screen up to 12in. from the wall, swivels left or right from 20 degrees to 32 degrees (depending on screen size), tilts up to 25 degrees down and seven degrees up providing an easily attainable, ideal angle from any viewing location. In the retracted position, the mount is unobtrusive, residing 4.6in. from the wall.
"This product combines all of the features ever needed in a motorized wall mount extension and retraction, pivot, even tilt all with a simple push of a remote control button,” says Derrik Lam, director, mounting solutions business unit. “Imagine a screen mounted 12ft. in the air that you can now pivot and tilt so your customer can comfortably see everythingand you can do this without using a ladder.”
The MM860 is installed using familiar steps used for installing manual flat-panel mounts. Universal mounting brackets and all the required screen attachment fasteners are included to secure and accommodate virtually any flat-panel screen up to 60in. Cables and cords are concealed via bellows located behind the display, providing a clean appearance. The bellows also prevents foreign objects from interfering with the movement of the mount, and protects the user from accidental pinching. A software program is incorporated in the functionality as standard with the MM860. Users only need to set the size of the screenthe program will prevent the screen from bumping into the wall.
The new Motorized Wall Mount is available this month at a list price of $2,199. For more information about Peerless’ mounting solutions, visit www.peerlessmounts.com or call (800) 865-2112.
