St. Paul, Minn. - Sanus Systems said it has begun
shipping its VisionMount VLMF109 motorized full-motion mount.
The VLMF109 features an IR remote
control and operates at 34dB, according to product manager Jeff Lasch, who said
in a statement that the noise level "is as quiet as a library."
The mount can extend up to 9 inches from
the wall and swivel up to 60 degrees. Its motor reportedly measures just less
than 2 inches, and when retracted, the TV sits 2 inches from the wall. Two
viewing angle presets are possible, and the mount automatically returns to its
home position when it's turned off, Sanus said.
Other features include lateral shifts
for sliding the TV left or right on the wall plate during installation, an open
wall plate design, and an automatic setup feature.
The VLMF109, which can accommodate both
16-inch and 24-inch wall studs, has a list price of $429. It will work with
flat-panel TVs from 37 to 56 inches and up to 110 pounds.
