Premier Mounts Launches Dedicated Custom Division

Branded as PDS (Premier Dedicated Solutions), Premier Mounts is setting up a new team that includes a set of engineers that work with clients and integrators from concept to installation to design and build any mounting solution.

Drawing on 40 years of ProAV experience,PDS designs and manufactures large-scale visual display structures for a wide range of applications. With product design, engineering and manufacturing under one roof, PDS leads the industry in responsive production at scale, maintaining quality, complexity and lead times second to none. And with a consolidated, vertically-integrated supply chain and manufacturing process, Premier Dedicated Solutions’ capacity for imaginative design gets passed on to the customer in the form of quality, long-lasting and high-value solutions backed by unmatched service and experience.

It’s a new era in Professional AV. Gone are the days when sophisticated projects could be fulfilled on stock products alone. As costs for LED become more affordable, and direct-view LED technology continues to improve and amaze, a new world of custom, architecturally integrated visual systems is emerging. However, without the VESA standards of LCD, stunning LED projects such as Videowalls require expert design and engineering. PDS leverages industry know-how based on long term partnerships with display manufacturers to tailor each design to fit, protect and optimize LED panels. The result is the most customized LED display applications the world has ever seen.

Here are all the details.
