Atlanta - Sanus is introducing at CEDIA Expo its Install Tool Kit iPad app.
The free app, now available for download from the iTunes App Store, provides TV mount compatibility and installation assistance for installers to use on the job site.
The Install Tool Kit features Sanus' MountFinder mount selection tool and HeightFinder installation assistant.
With MountFinder, installers can search for compatible mounts for more than 15,000 TVs from a comprehensive list organized alphabetically by brand and model number.Search results are organized by mount type -- full-motion, tilting, low-profile or specialty -- with details including features, specs and price.
The HeightFinder tool helps an installer determine the exact drilling hole location for installing a mount. Variable information can be changed as required for custom installations by providing the desired height of a TV's top, center or bottom as measured from the floor. From this information, HeightFinder provides diagrams for quick reference.
The app also features a "MyNotes" notepad where installers can create and save notes and then reference back to them to recall installation information. It also provides demo videos, allowing installers to show customers the many benefits of mounting a TV, and to show them which type of mount is appropriate for their application.
"With many custom installers embracing new technologies like the iPad, we wanted to develop a useful application that will make it faster and easier for installers to get assistance in the field," said Sanus GM Jim Wohlford.
Sanus is giving demonstrations of the app in booth 1136. Attendees who participate in the demo will be eligible to win an iPad during a daily giveaway.
