New Projector Hinge Mechanism Discretely Stores Projector in the Wall

Press Release  |  Oct 6, 2011

Ideal for when ceiling mounting is not possible or the ceiling height is too high

Kimpton, Hertfordshire, UK – October 6, 2011 – Future Automation, a market leader in flat screen mounting solutions and high-tech automated lifts, is proud to announce the availability of its Projector Hinge Mechanism, offering integrators a superior option when concealing projection systems in the home. Installed within the wall, this unique product is an ideal solution for homes where there is inefficient space in a ceiling for a projector, or in a home with high ceilings where the projector needs to be dropped a substantial amount. Also suited for smaller spaces such as yachts or condominiums, the Projector Hinge opens a world of opportunities when installing a projection system.

Future Automation has developed the Projector Hinge Mechanism to provide a unique solution to a growing problem in projection installations. As projection technology continues to evolve, more and more homeowners are opting to include projection in other areas of the home and integrators are faced with the challenges of installing projectors into rooms with more architectural features. The Projector Hinge allows the projector to be installed inside the wall, combating space issues in homes with high ceilings or limited ceiling space. When installed in the wall, the Projector Hinge simply folds downward from the wall, into a level position, and just like that is ready for your viewing pleasure.

“More and more projectors are being installed into spaces other than a dedicated theater, but because these rooms weren’t built with a projector specifically in mind, properly concealing it while still maintaining the design integrity of the room becomes difficult,” said Ollie French VP of Future Automation. “With the Projector Hinge product, we’re opening up more possibilities for integrators to install projection systems with a product that won’t interfere with their homes’ design.”

Superbly depth efficient and functional, the Projector Hinge comes in a variety of standard sizes to fit the vast majority of home theater projectors, and is the perfect way to transform any living space into a home theater. An aluminum mounting grid ensures the projector won’t move when transitioning from the wall to the “in use” position, guaranteeing the projector will remain at your perfect viewing preference day in and day out. The Projector Hinge is complete with an enclosed backbox, creating a clean, finished look while the projector is in use and a full internal cable management system ensures cables are never seen. When in the closed position, the Projector Hinge can be customized to suite each homeowners personal décor, offering a discrete look and finish. Like all Future Automation products, the Projector Hinge is able to work with any third party home automation system. About Future Automation
