Minneapolis, Minn., USA (JUNE 2012) - www.chiefmfg.com - Chief, an industry leader in mounts, racks and interactive solutions, announces a new generation of ceiling mounts that maintain the company's continuing commitment to improvement and product innovation.

Lighter flat-screen televisions have opened the doors for new options in video wall solutions, particularly with ceiling-mounted installations in large, indoor entertainment and hospitality venues where walls may not be in abundance.

Chief offers flexible solutions that scale from mounting single displays to three-by-three display configurations.

Single-display ceiling mounts

Features of the single ceiling mounts include continuous tilt ranges with four set locking points that eliminate guesswork when adjusting multiple screens; QuickConnect™ for ease of installation and service; tool-free latching flags to secure the display; optional padlock security; Centris® technology to provide fingertip tilt; and optimization for a wide range of display sizes.

Multi-display ceiling mounts

Features of the multi-display ceiling mounts include independent height, plumb and lateral shift adjustment knobs to help easily align displays, no tools required; optimization for display sizes of 40 to 55 inches; and availability in two-screen wide configurations and three-screen wide configurations.

"These new mounts will incorporate many of the suggestions and feedback we get from end users," said Luke Westin, Associate Product Manager. "We think they will be pleased with the ease of installation, versatility and scalability of the new mounting solutions."

Look for the new models available this fall from Chief.
