Vaddio CeilingView HideAway
At InfoComm 2011, Vaddio will introduce the CeilingView HD HideAway Camera Lift. Built for the Vaddio ClearView HD 18/19/20 family of cameras, the new product provides a mounting solution for concealing the camera above a ceiling when not in use, company officials said. While in use, the camera is quietly lowered from the ceiling; when turned off, it will automatically retract back into the ceiling.
“People tend to feel more comfortable when there isn’t a visible camera in the room,” said Vaddio President Rob Sheeley, in a statement. “We created the system for Vaddio cameras to provide our integrators with an architecturally transparent design for keeping cameras completely hidden in a room when they are not being used.”
Adding the CeilingView HD HideAway lift system creates a more aesthetically pleasing camera solution, according to the company. Users no longer have cameras hanging from exposed ceiling or wall mounts obstructing views of the presentation area. The cameras, mount, and cabling are all concealed within the lift system back-box in the ceiling. The HideAway also provides a more secure mount for the camera, deterring theft or tampering.
The mount works with Vaddio’s WallView HD-20/19/18 Short Range or DVI/HDMI camera systems. The CeilingVIEW HD HideAway power interface provides power, video, and control over Cat-5 cables from the physical lift system to the head-end. The motorized back-box assembly, ceiling bridge mounting bracket, and ceiling trim ring offer an easy-to-install, high definition motorized lift solution, Vaddio said.
