“Good to Go? DIY Video Demystifies Flat-Panel TV Mounting

Jason Cole in “Good to Go?ANAHEIM, CALIF. (Aug. 11, 2008) – As consumer spending on flat-panel TVs continues to grow, more and more homeowners are getting rid of their bulky entertainment centers in favor of wall mounting their new TVs. The percentage of U.S. households planning to buy a new TV is at an all-time high. In fact, according to ABCNews.com, in June 2008, 12.2 percent of U.S. households planned a TV purchase.

To support the millions of do it yourselfers and weekend warriors who will be hanging flat-panel TVs in the next few months, Premier Mounts (www.mounts.com) has created the “Good to Go? how-to video. The non-commercial video is available for download at Premier Mounts’ Web site at http://www.premiermounts.com/videos/good-to-go-video.html as well as several other video-share Web sites including YouTube, Veoh, Yahoo! Videos and Howcast.

Entitled “Good to Go? to reinforce the simplicity of the process, Premier Mounts product marketing manager, Jason Cole, CTS, walks consumers through each step of the mounting process – from choosing the right mount, to finding the correct placement, and finally, the drilling and mounting of the TV.

“One of the most common problems that consumers encounter is that they do a lot of research on the flat-panel TV itself but seldom think about the mounting solution they are going to use when they get that new TV home, said Cole. “A mount can bring a lot to an installation — not only can it protect your investment and provide viewing flexibility, it can also open up a room or accent your décor. The Good to Go video is really designed to offer the basics, it also demystifies what can seem like a daunting project.?

According to Cole, the element consumers are most concerned with is proper placement of the flat-screen TV on the wall. Cole suggests placing a piece of wrapping paper, approximately the size of the display, on the wall and “live with it? for a couple of days. Using this technique, consumers can determine if the display is set at the appropriate level or if glare from windows needs to be considered. Once the position is determined then consumers should research their mounting options.
