Posted on Thursday, August 6, 2009

The new line offers exclusive, industry-first precision image alignment for fast installation and positioning of short throw projectors.

Minneapolis, MN. USA (Aug 2009) - - Chief Manufacturing, the industry leader in projector, monitor and flat panel TV mounting solutions, is excited to announce a new line of short throw projector wall mounts and mounting kits are now available. Chief's short throw mounts are revolutionary products, different and better than any other short throw mount on the market.

The new short throw wall mounts include several installer-inspired features to ensure fast, trouble-free installation. Among the top differentiating features are industry-first micro adjustments of height and leveling that allow the installer to position the projector perfectly, regardless of the environment. Achieve precise image alignment using the built-in telescoping extension of up to 54" and innovative lateral shift capabilities when spanning multiple studs. The new mounts feature built-in cable management for a clean installation and are designed for safety in any environment.

Chief will offer six different mounts for single or dual stud mounting, each with a different extension range, as well as kits which include Chief's all new RSMAU™ Mini RPA Elite® projector mount for a complete short throw projector mounting system.

All dual stud short throw mounts are now shipping. The single stud versions will begin shipping the end of August.

A Complete Whiteboard Solution
Chief also plans to release a wall bracket specially designed to mount a whiteboard over an existing chalkboard. This allows installers to use the wall space while avoiding costly removal of the chalkboard. When paired with a Chief short throw mounting system, you have a complete, state-of-the-art whiteboard solution.

Mounting Arms, Projector Mounts, and Whiteboard bracket sold separately.

RPA Elite Mini Mount
Chief's new Mini RPA Elite is a miniature version of the popular RPA Elite® (RPM) projector mount, perfect for today's smaller projectors. The mini mount features a newly designed universal projector interface bracket with convenient lamp and filter access, providing even faster installation and servicing of the projector. At almost half the size of the original Elite mount, the new mini mount includes the same great features, including micro-adjustments for precise registration, Centris™ fingertip positioning, and Q-Lock™ keyed locking. The mini RPA Elite maintains registration when disconnected, has integrated cable management and supports up to 25 lbs. Chief's Mini RPA Elite and Mini RPA, as well as the standard RPA Elite and RPA, are compatible with the new Short Throw Projector Mount line.
