Do It Right, Not Over: A Mount is a Mount, But a Mounting Solution Delivers ROI

Conventional wisdom says that a display mount is just a mount, so taking the path of least resistance–buying a mount based on price– is the shortest distance between two points. After all, hanging a single flat panel monitor on the wall isn’t that hard and it doesn’t require a whole lot of pre-planning, special equipment, or significant technical expertise. The mount just holds the TV to the wall anyway, so cheapest equals best and on to the next project. However, things aren’t always that cut and dry. Suppose you have a retail window space to fill with a large video

Keeping Pace with the Perpetual Evolution of Technology through Partnerships

By Alan C. Brawn, CTS, ISF-C, DSCE, DSDE, DSNE, DCME Beyond the old joke that the only constants in life are death and taxes, the fact is that the only real constant in life is change. Changes can be slow and methodical as in the case of the evolution of a species, or changes can be rapid as noted by technological evolution. As an example of this phenomenon, just look at the ubiquitous cell phone. It has evolved in short order from a basic telecommunications device to a full-blown computer, portable videoconferencing device, and lifestyle “necessity” that everyone is seemingly

Mounts as a Design Tool: Versatility is the Answer

Written By: Alan C. Brawn CTS, DSCE, DSDE, DSNE, DCME, ISF-C In the wonderful world of commercial AV, one of the battles we face every day is commodity thinking and finding ways to differentiate ourselves and add value in the marketplace. Today we fight the battle of conventional wisdom which says that a display is a display and an AV system is nothing more than a group of plug and play items. Most of us who have been around for any period of time know that this is not the way it really works and in many cases a plug and

Collaborative Design with Building Information Modeling

When contributing to a project design where multiple teams are involved, coordination is the key. Each team needs to open a clear line of communication in order to allow for full project compatibility and accountability. Like the pieces of a puzzle, elements such as electrical, plumbing, and room layouts must fit together in harmony. Considering that each of these elements comes from a different project development team, communication through one common medium is the best way for each team to ensure their “puzzle pieces” fit properly with the rest. Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process that uses digital representations

The Mobile Transport Cart: Innovation on Wheels

When it comes to the product development process, the thing that impresses me the most is that initial spark. It’s the birthplace of innovation, and that “AHA!” moment that spirals into the creation of a problem-solving product. It’s a thought process evolution of, “This could be easier. This SHOULD be easier. But how?” There’s an opportunity with each challenge, and that is exactly what happened at Premier Mounts when our design team began the process of developing our new Mobile Transport Cart (MTC). We’ve held long-standing partnerships with members of the Rental & Staging industry, and in one of our consultations, we

The Product Development Process: One Part Bruce Banner, One Part Incredible Hulk

I don’t have a job that requires breaking things just to see when they break. I have to admit, it sounds kind of awesome. Since I enjoy things that are awesome, I recently went to our Engineering Department to see why breaking things is one of the keys to designing a quality product. The Product Development Process is one of the key components to the overall Premier Mounts experience. It’s the process through which Questions design Answers, and Challenges become the source of Solutions. The concept for a new mounting solution is usually formed in one of two ways: An
