The Launch of a New Speaker Stand Line and Flat Panel Display Swivels Continues to Fill a Void for Consumers Accessorizing Their Home Theaters

PHOENIX, Ariz. – September 6, 2007 - OmniMount, a global leader in both consumer and commercial mounting solutions, is pleased to announce the launch of a complete new line of speaker stands, designed to meet both the audio and aesthetic needs of home theater enthusiasts. In addition, the company is now manufacturing a flat panel display swivel, a necessary accessory for consumers that demand flexibility in viewing their traditionally stationary displays.

As a strategic partner to numerous national retailers, OmniMount strives to keep shelves stocked with products that accompany the flat panel and home theater purchase. “We‘ve always been a home theater accessory company, but as flat panel prices continue to fall, we‘ve put more focus on developing innovative items that will provide additional value to the consumer,” said Brett Stenhouse, OmniMount vice president of marketing. “I‘m proud to say that OmniMount is unique because we make it a priority to get out in the retail environment to get a feel for what the consumer needs – then we work with our strategic retail partners to bring the best product to market,” Stenhouse added.

These products are only a sampling of the new lines OmniMount has in the development pipeline set to roll out in the remainder of the year.

In the spirit of catering to consumers‘ needs, OmniMount has also created a new look for packaging. Dramatic lifestyle images and simply communicated product benefits are the staples of the design. Due to overwhelming positive response, the new style of packaging is on schedule to roll out to all OmniMount products by the end of 2008.
