CLO SYSTEMS' X -arm ROBOTIC FLAT PANEL MOUNT WINS ELECTRONIC HOUSE PRODUCT of the YEAR AWARD FOR 2006
-Programmable, Remote Controlled Mounting Solution Extends, Tilts and Swivels Displays Allowing the Widest Range of Glare-Free Viewing and Mounting Location Options-
West Covina, CA. July 26, 2006 - CLO Systems, an industry leader in advanced mounting solutions for flat panel displays, today announced that it has won the Electronic House Product of the Year Award for 2006 for its X -arm™ remote controlled robotic display mounting solution for flat panel TV's. The official presentation will take place during an awards ceremony to be held on September 16, 2006 at the Denver City Marriott Hotel during the annual CEDIA (Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association) Exposition. The award -winning X -arm is a revolutionary development for remotely adjusting and remembering the ideal glare -free, on -axis viewing angle of flat panel TV's.
"X -arm's affordable robotic technology effortlessly eliminates the three major complaints associated with viewing and installing flat panel displays: glare, reflection and limited mounting options because of off -axis viewing problems" said Ken Nguyen, Director of Sales and Marketing of CLO Systems. "We are pleased and honored to have received such a distinguished industry award".
At the touch of a button on the provided universal remote control or via a RS -232 controlled touch panel, X -arm smoothly extends the TV 12 inches from the wall allowing the viewer to adjust the swivel left/right range of motion from 20º to 28º (depending on display size) in either direction and tilt range up to 25º down and 7º up until the optimum glare -free viewing angle is obtained and stored. Two programmable memory locations are provided to recall viewing preferences for day and night or user one and two.
Invisible from the front of the TV, X -arm is suitable for flat panel displays between 40 and 60 inch sizes (up to 180 pounds). X -arm is easily installed in the same manner as any conventional manual wall mounting unit. A universal mounting attachment kit is provided to facilitate easy coupling with the flat
panel display. In the retracted position, the TV is unobtrusive, residing a mere 4.6 inches from the wall.
A universal IR remote control is provided to control the X -arm as well as other AV components. X -arm is compatible with RS -232 -based control systems from Crestron, Life|ware (Exceptional Innovation) and other leading control systems making X -Arm a true home automation system. Cable management provisions include concealment via a bellows located behind the display. The bellows also prohibits foreign objects from interfering with the movement of the actuators.
Editors from Electronic House Publishing's four connected home magazines each focused on cutting -edge technology for the home, selected the CLO Systems X -arm as one of their favorites out of hundreds of entries. Topping the list of criteria is technological innovation combined with overall value and outstanding features.
