OmniMount and Ergotron, Nortek Subsidiaries, Unveil New Interactive Mounts for Consumers at CEDIA 2011

OmniMount introduces new mounts with Constant Force Technology from Ergotron for greater viewer interaction and experience

St. Paul, MN, September 6, 2011

OmniMount is introducing the CE industry’s first interactive TV wall mount with Ergotron Constant Force Technology at CEDIA EXPO 11 in Indianapolis, booth 4025. The OmniMount ActionMount™ PLAY40 expands on the interactive capabilities of the TV viewer, creating an all-new experience for the whole family that’s healthier and interactive. OmniMount and Ergotron’s integration within Nortek is providing customers with the broadest market-leading portfolios across the business-to-business, Retail and Consumer, Professional Audio, Digital Signage OEM Branded and Global Services markets and industries. OmniMount will continue to focus on the Consumer / Retail and Professional Audio markets but will leverage the expertise of both brands to introduce consumers to products like the interactive TV mount (PLAY40), and the world’s first constant force sit-stand workstation (WFA) for home office and computing environments, also available for preview at CEDIA.

“Ergotron’s CF Technology has been incorporated into our new interactive mount offerings,” said Geoff Miller, OmniMount president and CEO. “Many consumers want to do more than just stare at their TVs. They play games with them and work out with them. Now it’s possible for the display to be positioned exactly where the consumer wants it, with infinite variety and ease of use.”

Ergotron’s patented Constant Force Technology brings a new element of weight adjustability to the OmniMount line, in products that swiftly adjust multiple size and weight displays. This gives consumers effortless lift, pivot and tilt functionality at price points that will provide retailers the highest accessory attachment rates to their TV sales.

“We focus our energy on designing and launching products that consumers want,” said Joel Hazzard, CEO and president of Ergotron. “Today people are interacting with their displays and TV’s and we are bringing tremendous products to market that exceed what the consumers want. They will now be able to move their display to suit multiple applications—from gaming to optimal viewing for 3DTV’s with effortless repositioning for whatever the application.”

As screen options evolve, consumers are growing savvier about where their content should be displayed and how they want to interact with it. With OmniMount’s new interactive mounts for TV viewing and computing, the choice is placed back in the consumers’ hands, encouraging healthy movement that is not only good for the body by helping tone muscles, increase blood flow, even promote greater caloric burn, but also by increasing the real and perceived enjoyment of the focused activity. Whether sitting or standing at a computer workstation, or raising or lowering a screen for kids or adult playing a Wii game, the results are clear.

Both the PLAY40 and the WFA will be on display at CEDIA in addition to OmniMount’s new A/V mounting and furniture solutions.
