With the fireplace as a focal point of many family rooms, it makes sense to place the TV above the mantle; however, the viewer is forced to look up and watch at an awkward angle in many cases. But more TVs are mounted above a fireplace than any other spot in a home actually. A start-up called ComfortVu ia launching a motorized mount that moves the TV out and down in front of the fireplace to help with this problem. Designed for LCD TVs, the company claims its mount moves the display 29 inches down and 21 inches forward and can be used for TVs up to 200 lbs.
