Supreme sets new mount standards, says Peerless28 February 2017
Peerless-AV has declared itself “delighted” with the reception at ISE 2017 for the SmartMount Supreme – a brand new addition to its award-winning line of Full Service Video Wall Mounts. Available in two versions – lever (DS-VW775) and quick release (DS-VW775-QR) – the Supreme is designed with integrators and end-users in mind to provide two new mounting options with even greater time-saving installation benefits (including tool-less lateral micro-adjustment), effortless serviceability, lightweight structure and reusable spacers for both portrait and landscape applications.
Named ‘the king of videowall mounts’, Supreme is said to set a new standard for mounts in terms of ease of install and display alignment. On the DS-VW775 model, access for servicing and maintenance serviceability is now even simpler owing to unique red pop-out levers – a feature held by no other univesal mount on the market. Simply pull one of the levers to release the mount for an increased amount of service space. On the DS-VW775-QR model, a press to release pop-out feature provides quick and convenient access to a recessed display.
The Supreme offers an added feature of lateral adjustment on the back plate and 38mm (1.5in) of travel on each of the X, Y and Z axis using prominent red adjustment knobs, eliminating the need for tedious calculations and helping to create seamlessly aligned video walls. Both mounts are 25% lighter in comparison to previous models, making them easier to handle and position, especially when combined with the easy hang adaptor plate, install app and reusable display-dedicated wall plate spacers.
On both models, reusable spacers can be used for portrait and landscape applications, resulting in a faster install and lower cost. Enhanced cable management allows the cables to effortlessly travel in and out with the display, eliminating the chance of interfering with the mount.
Keith Dutch, managing director of Peerless-AV EMEA, commented: “We were delighted by the reception that our SmartMount Supreme Full Service Video Wall Mount received at ISE 2017. It was the first time we’d shown the product to an international audience, in standard and quick release versions, side by side. Customer feedback was extremely positive, especially regarding the mount’s re-usable spacers for both portrait and landscape applications and the reduced weight of the mount, lending itself to no fuss, one-man installation. The smooth glide action of the scissor arms, when extended and retracted, was a valued feature, demonstrating quality and reliability in use. In general, customers appreciated that we that we had a scissor mount solution from LCD (including larger LCD) to LED and there is a trust that we are continuing our legacy as the best at manufacturing videowall/LED wall solutions.”
The Supreme DS-VW775 and DS-VW775-QR Video Wall Mounts support 46in to 60in displays with a maximum load of 56.8kg and VESA pattern up to 400 x 400 (which can be extended to 600 x 400 and 800 x 400 with adaptors). A security hardware option is available for public environments to deter tampering and theft.
