Chief® Showcases Installer -Inspired FUSION™ Series Fixed and Tilt Mounts at CEDIA 2008

Take control of your install with the all-new FUSION, engineered to solve common installation problems for the professional installer.

Minneapolis, MN. - - (August 2008) - www.chiefmfg.com - Chief's new FUSION universal mounting system provides the most progressive collection of features available today, focusing on usability and speed of installation. The new low -profile design, available in fixed or tilt models for 26" -75" TVs, was engineered to solve the most common installation problems for the professional installer and free up valuable time.


To develop the FUSION Series, Chief began by conducting valuable field research. The Chief product development team joined professional installers onsite, to observe specific challenges they are faced with when mounting flat panel TVs. These challenges, ranging from inconvenient stud location to perfect leveling of the flat panel, directly influenced the design of FUSION.

Represented by the 4 C's, features of the FUSION Series work to perfect flat panel wall mount installations. The 4 C's of FUSION include:

1. Centerless™ Lateral Shift allows perfect centering of a flat panel TV, offering up to 16" of post -installation adjustment (8" left or right of uprights), to offset the mount from studs.
2. ControlZone™ Leveling provides fail -proof mounting. Make all needed adjustments after the mount is on the wall, including overall mount height and leveling.
3. Centris™ Low -Profile Tilt provides effortless, fingertip tilting without tools while remaining less than 2" deep.
4. Click -Connect™ features an audible click when the screen safely engages with the mount. For easy cable access, use the built -in cable that temporarily positions screen away from the wall.

Customizable for any application, FUSION offers integrated accessories, including a glass component shelf, side speaker and center channel speaker adapters that are automatically leveled with the mount.

Simplifying the mounting process and decreasing installation time, the new FUSION Series presents a fully integrated solution to answer common problems faced by installers.
