Fusion Mounts to be Used in Conjunction with Brightsign Controllers, flixio Content and Philips Commercial LCDs
Minneapolis, MN. USA (FEB 2010) - www.chiefmfg.com - Chief, the industry leader in professional AV solutions, has teamed up with Brightsign, flixio and Philips to provide visitors to the upcoming Digital Signage Expo with a visual treat with high impact. The companies combined efforts to create a massive digital video arch that will greet more than 180 exhibitors and hundreds of thousands of guests attending the DSE in Las Vegas between Feb. 22nd and 25th.
The arch, consisting of 19 Brightsign digital controllers, 19 Philips commercial displays, flixio content and Chief’s award winning Fusion mounts, will reach a height of 12 feet and span more than 28 feet in length.
“It’s exciting to see what can be accomplished when the creative forces of our industry combine to create what has to be one of the industry’s most dynamic displays,” said Chris Gibbs, president of ExpoNation, LLC, the producer of Digital Signage Expo. “It is certainly the most unique entry to any tradeshow ever produced and will have a powerful impact on end users, brand marketers and systems integrators from around the globe as they enter the show. Clearly, we need more of this type of collaboration to illustrate how the latest digital signage technologies can work together to achieve truly memorable results.”
The 19 Philips displays will be held in place by Chief’s award winning Fusion mount, reducing installation costs and delays during the construction of the digital archway. The innovative Fusion series offers installers a number of beneficial features, including Controlzone™ leveling, an industry-first feature that allows installers to level displays even after installation. The Fusion series also offers Centerless Shift capabilities, providing installers the flexibility of 17.5 inches of lateral shift, thereby providing limitless centering capabilities.
In recent years, the Fusion series has been recognized with many accolades, including the CE Pro BEST Award, the Resi Award from Residential Systems and Custom Retailer’s EXC!TE Award.
Chief also provided the newly designed PAC260 digital media player mounts for the digital media players that will provide synchronized video for the display. The PAC260 is rated to hold components weighing up to 30 pounds (13.6 kg) and will be available in several configurations, allowing installers to mount digital media players directly to a 100 x 100 VESA mount, an existing wall mount or a pole mount. The PCA260 will ship later this year.
