ISE debut for OmniMount full motion TV wall mounts15 February 2012
Part of OmniMount’s ActionMount series, the PLAY20, PLAY20X (pictured) and PLAY40 are said to redefine full motion by offering users ‘an unconventional way to get off the sofa and interactive with their TVs’.
Commenting on the new products – which were introduced at ISE 2012 – Jonathan Pyenson, senior vice-president of EMEA sales for OmniMount, observed: “Traditional mounting solutions focus on getting TVs off of furniture and mounted to the wall, but with limited motion and technology. While in previous years this has served the market well, it doesn’t address the way people interact with their TVs today. The ActionMount PLAY products address modern day multi-purpose TV use. The ease of movement encourages more interaction than ever before, like interactive gaming and exercising, resulting in a healthier lifestyle.”
Integrating Ergotron Constant Force technology to provide fluid, omni-directional TV movement, the ActionMount allow TVs to be raised up to 21” for gaming or group viewing, or lowered 21” for fitness or floor seating. Each mount can be positioned to achieve the ideal 3D viewing angle, without the need for a precise installation, while the range of pan (180 degrees) allows the mount to be viewable from multiple rooms or seating areas.
The mount can also be used high over a fireplace and then lowered to achieve the proper viewing angle when in use. CF technology ensures that the force required for movement remains minimal.
Best suited for family rooms, game rooms and bedroom applications, the PLAY40 fits TVs 60” and beyond (panel weight not exceeding 40 pounds), and offers up to 21” of vertical and horizontal movement. A suitable addition for kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms, the PLAY20 and PLAY20X fits TVs up to 32” and 20 pounds, and offers up to 15” of vertical and horizontal adjustment. The PLAY20X also comes with a 9” arm extension for even greater viewing flexibility.
Each mount features post-installation levelling, tilt and pan, and cable management.
