Chief Now Shipping New Interactive Solution for Ceiling-Mounted Projectors

Press Release  |  May 8, 2012

Part of Chief’s interactive product line, the new accessory instantly adds interactivity to ceiling-mounted projector installations

Minneapolis, MN. USA (MAY 2012) - - Chief, an industry leader in mounts, racks and interactive solutions, announces that its new interactive ceiling-mounted projector solution is now shipping. Flexible and future-proof, the CMSI interactive accessory easily converts an existing ceiling-mounted projector’s image into an interactive display.

This is the latest solution in Chief’s award-winning interactive product line. With a built-in sensor, the accessory mounts on the wall above an existing dry erase board and instantly transforms a ceiling-mounted projector into a robust interactive platform, powered by eBeam® technology from Luidia Inc.

As with all Chief products, the interactive accessory combines both functionality and aesthetics. With a sleek design and brushed aluminum finish, it easily blends into any environment.

By taking the interactivity out of projectors and whiteboards and putting it in the mount, Chief offers an economical and long-term approach to interactive technology. The universal compatibility of Chief mounts provides the flexibility to choose your own technology, and allows you to upgrade your projector or whiteboard at any time in the future without having to pay for interactive capabilities all over again.

"Chief’s new interactive solution offers an easy, budget-friendly way to instantly add interactivity to existing ceiling-mounted projectors," said Derek Derks, Chief’s Business Development Manager. "Technology changes quickly, but by placing interactivity in the mount, you have a flexible and long-term solution ready for future technologies and upgrades."

The new interactive accessory for ceiling mounted projectors joins Chief’s Interactive Short Throw Projector Mount, launched in April 2011.
