Chief’s Plans at COMM-TEC’s S14 Solutions Day

commtecchief_featWeert, NETHERLANDS (MAY 2015) – Chief, an industry leader in AV mounting solutions, is now shipping upgraded projector kits, mounts and accessories for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

As with many Chief product solutions, customer feedback led to the development of this product line. In 2013 Chief debuted a projector mount series created specifically for AV needs in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The models featured a pin-connection system more common in the regions, among other upgrades. Since then, Chief has gathered feedback from the field and used it to create new enhanced models.

“Our partners have been invaluable to the development process,” said Robert de Jong, Director of Product Marketing. “They shared what they liked about the new designs and what could be even better. This was essential to guiding design improvements to fit their needs.”

New benefits include:

  • Added rigidity for an extra-strong install- Reinforced construction at the ceiling plate, telescoping joint and mount creates an ultra-stable installation and supports stationary image alignment.
  • Enhanced aesthetics- New ceiling plate cover provides an aesthetic finish for fixed installations.

For suspended ceiling applications, Chief now offers a decorative tile ring for a polished look. Additionally, a telescoping joint cover conceals cables with style.

  • Upgraded cable management- Expanded cable management provides ample room for power, audio, network and signal cables, and exterior placement allows for easy serviceability.  

Customers can order the convenient kits with everything needed in one box for installation, including a telescoping height-adjustment column, micro adjustable keyed locking projector mount and ceiling plate. Parts can also be ordered separately.

Columns can be modified in the field, and integrated cable inlays allow for clean cable management and quick access when cables need to be serviced. The projector mounts retain all the Microzone™ adjustments that make projector registration fast and precise.

The column system and projector mounts are safety tested and TUV certified.
