Chief Expands Award-Winning Series of Interactive Mounts

Chief is excited to introduce flat panel and ceiling-mounted projector solutions to its line of interactive products

Minneapolis, MN. USA (JAN 2012) - www.chiefmfg.com - Chief, an industry leader in mounts, racks and interactive solutions, has expanded its award-winning series of interactive mounts to include flat panel and ceiling-mounted projector solutions. Combined with flexible, user-friendly technology, these new solutions easily convert standard TVs and projectors into interactive environments that will last for years to come.

Powering the interactive experience is innovative, industry-leading eBeam® technology from Luidia Inc. Through a receiver built into the mount, any standard flat panel or projector is quickly turned into an interactive solution.

Each interactive solution includes a lightweight, ergonomic stylus featuring exceptional, real-time rendering capabilities. Three interactive accessories are available for use with most Chief flat panel mounts, and one additional accessory for use with any ceiling-mounted projector installation.

Best of all, Chief’s interactive solutions are flexible and future-proof, offering compatibility with other popular software and an easy upgrade path for TV and projector replacements without losing interactive capabilities.

The new solutions join Chief’s Interactive Short Throw Projector Mount, launched in April 2011.

"With the success of the Interactive Short Throw Projector Mount, we decided to expand our interactive product line into new categories," said Derek Derks, Chief’s Business Development Manager. "Customers are responding to what our interactive solutions have to offer. We provide an easy, budget-friendly way to add interactivity to existing projectors and displays, and with the upgrade path to new technologies, they know they can count on these solutions for many years."

These new interactive products can be seen this week at the FETC conference in Orlando, booth 1315, and at the TCEA convention and exposition in Austin, Texas, on Feb. 8-10, booth 207.
