Rear-projection improvement

A new feature has been added to the Trooper Thru-the-Wall (TTW) rear projection mirror system from Da-Lite. In addition to the Trooper’s projector mount cradle, which offers alignment adjustments, the model now includes a trapezoid-shaped, first-surface mirror mounted on a three-point suspension system. According to the company, this adds stability and flatness to digitally projected images. Also, the optional Perfect Image mirror management allows for image adjustment to compensate for barrel distortion and pin cushioning from short focal length projectors.

Peerless Industries introduces two new mounts for LCD flat panel monitors. Vision Point wall mounts are available in either pivot or articulating models. The pivot mounts – the LPS has a 3in. arm, the LPL has a 5 7/8in. arm – offer side-to-side rotation and tilt for small and medium screens.

Both types of wall mounts fold flat against the wall, feature a ball joint that adjusts the viewing angle, include theft-resistant screws, and have an aluminum finish. The articulating mounts support both VESA 75 and VESA 100 hole mounting patterns and are fully kitted with the mount, bracket, and screen mounting plate.
