Debuting from OmniMount is the flagship of its new HDARM (premium articulated retractable flat-panel mount) line, the 63HDARMUA, a pre-assembled 63HDARM with a 63UCA-A premium adapter that contains everything needed to mount a display. The all-in-one solution features rugged die-cast aluminum construction, two color options, 200-pound weight capacity and a complete hardware kit.
The HDARM series, which has started shipping, represents a one-box solution and is the best value in cantilever mounts, according to Phoenix-based OmniMount. It features a model covering every display from 13 inches to 63 inches, and up to 200 pounds.
The 54HDARMUS also offers a one-box solution. Like the 63HDARMUA, it uses a double-stud wall plate and includes a complete mounting hardware kit. It has a premium self-centering adapter that will accommodate a VESA 200 by 200 mounting pattern and far beyond. Product will have its debut June 7-9 at the InfoComm 2006 show here.
Suggested retail for the 63HDARMUA is $549.95.
OmniMount's new ceiling mounts fit flat-panel displays from 37 inches to 60 inches. The 54FBSK (single) and the 54FBDK (double), which ship in the fourth quarter, feature a VESA 100 by 200 and 200 by 200 compliant mounting head with -5/+15 degree of tilt. For displays that are not VESA compliant, the mounting head works with any OmniMount Pro 's premium universal adapters.
The 54FBDK provides a solution for applications requiring two flat-panel displays to be mounted back to back.
The company also will debut its new line of Fastback Portrait mounts. The 54FBPT (fixed), 54FBPT-T (tilt) and 54FBPT-CT (compound tilt) provide a one-box digital signage of boardroom presentation mounting solution. Double-stud mounting of 16 inches to 18 inches ensures that displays 37 inches and larger up to 157 pounds.
The 54FBPT-T features a -5/+15 degree infinite tilt with positive tilt positioning at 3 degree increments. The 54FBPT-CT is the flagship model in the line and has a lower mounting profile than the 54FBPT-T. It offers a +30 degree tilt with positioning at 5-degree increments.
Suggested retails for the new ceiling mounts and Fastback Portrait mounts are expected to be available by InfoComm.
