ST. PAUL, MN--(Marketwired - Apr 16, 2013) - As corporate and other commercial settings are designed and remodeled to accommodate the growing use of technology, specifically TVs and digital signage, facilities must address factors of application, aesthetics, safety and security. The Glide HD, a new wall mount by digital display solutions manufacturer Ergotron, is designed for TVs in multi-purpose, multi-user settings.
"Displays are being used for a variety of applications, like video conferencing, group analytics, information sharing and presenting, but different uses and users have unique needs," said Kevin Paulson, director of product management for Ergotron. "The Glide HD provides elegant height adjustability for a wall mounted TV, so interacting with the display and sharing content becomes easier and more natural."
The Glide HD has a discreet 2" profile that keeps the TV close to the wall while offering adequate room for air flow and routing cables, resulting in a clean install suitable for the most sophisticated and challenging spaces. The Glide HD supports 20 to 40 pounds and offers 18" of vertical lift and lower. The lift mechanism is designed with patented CF (Constant Force) technology to counter balance the weight of the display, requiring only minimal user force to adjust. The display can be raised higher for easy visibility in a crowded area or lowered when used with touch screen technology, giving users the ability to fine tune the height for each specific application.
Wall mounting a TV acts as a theft deterrent, especially when compared to displays left resting on furniture, providing an added layer of security in any public setting. In addition, TVs used in high-traffic areas are at risk of being bumped or jostled; securing them to the wall prevents accidental tip-over, saving facilities from possible injury and costly repairs.
The Glide HD joins a family of interactive wall mounts, including the Interactive LD and Interactive HD, all of which offer height adjustability. The Glide HD is available through Ergotron's distribution channels. To learn more about Ergotron and its entire line of solutions, visit http://www.ergotron.com or call 800.888.8458.
