Recently, due to the extended use of the Interactive Whiteboards, many projector manufacturers have introduced very short throw projector models. Historically, projectors needed to be around 3~4 metres away from a screen to produce 60” projected images. With these new short-throw projectors, many can achieve this 60” image or an even larger image from a distance under 1m.
Generally, short throw projectors tend to offer brighter images and are easier to install than ceiling mounted versions. Also projector images tend to be less affected by ambient lighting, as the room lights and windows are usually behind the projector. As cable-runs tend to be shorter, there is usually a significant cost saving to be made during an installation, also there is less likelihood of image ‘flicker’ due to the video cables picking up electrical ‘noise’ interference from the general environment. In terms of class-room or office disturbance, the installation process is faster and less intrusive. There is no need to have access above the ceiling to run the cables, also there is no need to remove ceiling tiles which often become brittle and can break.
From a very serious Health & Safety perspective, the most significant advantage of wall mounting a projector in older school or office buildings, is that it is much less likely to disturb long-standing debris in the ceiling voids, debris such as glass fibre insulation or even Asbestos fibres. Many schools and other educational establishments have established procedures for managing the very serious health hazards caused by existing Asbestos fibres. These procedures are in-place to control the access to hazardous areas and to prevent the disturbance of any ‘settled’ fibre debris.
To meet this market requirement, Flat Screen Support is proud to announce that it has launched 2 Short Throw Projector Mounts from leading American manufacturer Premier Mounts. The UNI-STA allows projectors to be mounted up to 68cm from the wall, while the UNI-EXT allows projectors to be mounted up to 170cm from the wall. Both models include a secure storage box for concealing a mini PC or Mac. As this mount is primarily designed for use with interactive whiteboards, it is critical that the image positioning is precise, as such these mounts can be minutely adjusted in all plains.
The Premier Short Throw projector mounts are ideal for the following brands of projectors :-
Optoma, Hitachi, Benq, Sanyo, Epson, Mitsubishi & Toshiba
