Mounting solutions maker OmniMount Systems reported it is taking its current product lineup to the next level, with a leadership role being played by the company's Stellar G-3FP flat-panel floor stand.
The G-3FP, which received a Consumer Electronics Association Innovations award last month, provides swivel and adjustable height and tilt options for 37-inch to 60-inch flat-panel TVs. It has started shipping at a suggested $399.95 retail.
The unit, said to combine the perfect viewing angle options of an adjustable wall mount with the all-around adaptability and hardy construction of a floor-stand mount, includes integrated cable management, self-centering universal adapter plate and adjustable glass component shelf.
OmniMount also has launched its Moda wall furniture system; it describes these as “sleek and stylish” products that provide a solution to consumers who need ample and adaptable cable management for their new flat-panel-based home theater system where connected components and available power sources are not easily manageable.
The company said its Moda wall system is pointed toward the do-it-yourself customer, since it is easy to install. Moda provides premium, integrated cable management, thus eliminating the need to re-wire existing power sources and/or conceal component cables behind walls in order to eliminate unsightly dangling wires.
With suggested retails ranging from $79.95 to $129.95, depending on the size of the system, Moda features a custom-installation template, an 8-inch and/or 16-inch blanks that allow for the integration of hidden cables for any length wall, 12-inch and 18-inch shelf sizes to integrate different connected center-channel and component dimensions and real wood veneer finish.
Scheduled availability is the second quarter.
Three new Eclipse wall furniture systems were introduced by OmniMount in the past month. This metal and glass furniture features minimal characteristics and design aesthetics that complement smaller A/V electronics, namely flat-panel displays.
Four pieces are available in the Eclipse family — three- and four-shelf audio towers and 42-inch and 52-inch video tables.
All units are shallower than most similar products, said OmniMount, and Eclipse tables are slimmer and designed to fit the majority of flat-panel displays and A/V components on the market today.
Product is designed for ease of assembly, offers cable management for both the U.S. and European markets, has a sleek and modern look to complement current design trends and produces a weight capacity of up to 150 pounds per shelf on the video tables and 50 pounds on the audio towers.
Suggested retails range from $229.95 to $299.95, with scheduled availability also in the second quarter.
