Standard Multi-Purpose and Cable Cage Polypropylene (CCP) J-Hooks are the solution for heavy duty hanging applications. They both offer traditional steel construction and stress free cable support to organize and build a distribution pathway for various cable types, and they are popular for uses above suspended ceilings, and below raised floors, as well as in the garage and shop.

“The CCP Series steel over-molded polypropylene J-Hooks are great time savers for installers,” added Phillips. “Faster cable pulls, no cable burn, and the integral latching mechanism all combine to provide the installer solutions ideal for telecom/voice, network/data, broadband, satellite, CCTV, fiber, and flexible conduit in security and commercial/home applications.”

Phillips continued, “Our Bridle Rings are the preferred choice for supporting and securing communication and other low voltage cables. They are simple, effective, and constructed of solid low carbon steel with various diameter sizes and standard thread configurations.

A.T. Still University Utilizes 175-Inch, 16:9 Aspect Ratio Severtson Screens SēVision 3D GX Projection Screen for New Virtual Anatomy Lab

(left-right) John Olson, Ph.D. (A.T. Still University); Jeremy Greene, B.S. (Lab Tech; A.T. Still University); Anna Campbell, Ph.D. (A.T. Still University); Kirk Severtson (Severtson Screens COO); "The Skull"; Dan Maxwell (Severtson Screens VP Cinema Sales); Jennifer Schaal (Arizona State University Anatomy Intern); Jay Crutchfield MD FACS (A.T. Still University); Ron Severtson (Severtson Screens president/CEO).

Mesa, Ariz., Feb. 24, 2014 – Prosthetic human bodies have taken a backseat and actual human cadavers now have competition as medical students at Mesa, Ariz.-based A.T. Still University (ATSU) can now sit in a purpose-designed $500,000 classroom and have practical “virtual” contact with simulated human anatomy. This educational practice is now possible thanks in part to a recently installed 175-inch, 16:9 aspect ratio Severtson Screens motorized SēVision 3D GX projection screen in ATSU’s School of Osteopathic Medicine’s (ATSU-SOMA) new state-of-the-art Virtual Anatomy Lab.

Available since November 2013, both university officials and students alike say that the class is nearly as lifelike as actually standing over and performing skilled medical procedures on human cadavers as pieces of the human anatomy are dissected and rotated in larger than life 3D modeling.

“Our 56-seat lab is the first of its kind in Arizona, and only one of a handful of similar labs nationwide,” explained Jay Crutchfield, MD, assistant professor and anatomy director, ATSU-SOMA. “The computer systems and dual state-of-the-art computer software we utilize offer students, as well as participants in continuing education conferences, an incredible 3D visual of the human anatomy without the drawbacks and limitations of working on human flesh that, once altered via dissection by an instructor or student, can’t be put back together and studied again.”

Crutchfield added that with such sophisticated software being utilized in such a unique atmosphere, A.T. Still University’s video requirements were quite demanding as the visual reproduction of the BodyViz, Cyber-Anatomy, 4DAnatomy, and VH Dissector software is crucial in this environment and so the video equipment must be state-of-the-art, as well.

“Poor video reproduction would render the software, and the program itself, useless for our students and guests,” Crutchfield continued. “This is not a home theater, company boardroom, museum, or cinema where the lights will go completely dark and the only visual is the screen. Ambient light from the hallway, the students’ and instructor’s computer monitors, as well as periodically dimmed overhead lighting made us realize that we needed a projection screen that could not only reproduce the necessary 3D imagery precisely, but also take into account the limitations of the room itself. The Severtson Screens SēVision 3D GX reproduces the 3D imagery from the Panasonic PT-DZ870E DLP™ 3D projector incredibly, even when ambient light is present. It is exactly what we needed for this program.”

Severtson Screens SēVision 3D GX offers PristiVue© technology, a revolutionary 3D coating on the screen material, which made it the perfect solution for ATSU-SOMA’s lab’s requirements.

“Proudly ‘Made in the USA’, the Severtson SēVision 3D GX projection screen that is in use in A.T. Still’s virtual anatomy lab provides the ultimate 3D experience by giving instructors the flexibility to show their projections in 2D or passive 3D formats, enhancing the students’ experience while keeping costs down,” said Kirk Severtson, Severtson Screens COO. “We are proud of the way our screen technology contributes to the education of healthcare students here in Arizona.”

According to the university, students will still take standard anatomy courses using real cadavers as nothing can truly replace working with an actual human body. However, according to university officials, simultaneously studying in the virtual anatomy lab will allow students to replace some the monotony of “lost time” preparing cadavers for course work whereas in the virtual lab, they immediately begin studying the human anatomy. Also, they added, working virtually, in some instances, allows students to better see different parts of the human body quickly and more clearly versus a cadaver.

A.T. Still University (www.atsu.edu) is the original founding institution of osteopathic healthcare, established in 1892 by Andrew Taylor Still. As a leading health sciences university, ATSU is comprised of two campuses (Kirksville, Mo., and Mesa, Ariz.) on more than 200 acres with six prestigious schools. Learning environments include residential and online medical degrees as well as community-based partnerships worldwide. ATSU has more than 700 employees dedicated to its not-for-profit mission and an average annual enrollment of over 3,100 students from 35 countries.

Since 1986 with its three production facilities in Arizona and its state-of-the-art robotic application system, Severtson Corp. continues to be a global leader in innovation and quality for home theater, education, commercial, and cinema applications worldwide.

Video Mount Products (VMP) Celebrates 20th Anniversary

STEVENSVILLE, Md., Feb. 18, 2014 — Video Mount Products (videomount.com), a leading provider of mounting solutions for the A/V, communications, and security markets, is proud to announce that it is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.

“Back in 1994 when big and boxy tube televisions were all the rage, VMP quickly became a favorite for mounting these bulky CRT’s onto walls and from the ceilings of bars, restaurants, gyms, and other commercial venues,” explained Keith Fulmer, president of Video Mount Products and a 28-year industry veteran who joined VMP in 1996. “Since then, VMP has evolved along with an ever expanding A/V industry into a leading supplier of flat panel mounting solutions, from installations in educational, institutional, and religious applications to lodging, sports venues, residential, health care, and restaurants.”

20 years ago, Stevensville, Md.-based Video Mount Products began as an OEM project to provide mounts for a handful of Maryland electronic distributors whose customers were handling multiple TV installations in small venues. The line began with a product offering of just six items and has evolved into an industry leader now offering nearly 200 SKUs to installation professionals across every facet of the A/V, communications, and security industries.

“While we began strictly offering TV mounts for CRTs, we now provide an extensive line that includes mounts for flat panels and projectors as well as equipment racks and cabinets for data and A/V installs,” Fulmer added. “Additionally, we cater to the needs of our wireless and broadband customers with an array of satellite and antenna mounting products.”

In 1996 when Fulmer was a principal of Keller & Associates, which was the manufacturers’ representative for Video Mount Products in the NY/NJ Metro area, the founder of VMP hired him to spearhead VMP’s growth and market development. In 2005, Fulmer purchased all of the company’s outstanding stock and became the sole owner.

Fulmer holds a B.B.A. in Accounting from James Madison University, is the father of two sons, and is an active leader of the Boy Scouts of America since 1997 as well as an active member of Christ Episcopal Church (Kent Island, Md.; oldest congregation in MD – Founded 1631). Prior to joining VMP, Fulmer was owner of manufacturers representative Concepts Unlimited, and executive vice president and partner for manufacturers representative Keller & Associates.

“VMP products have been engineered for and installed with confidence in thousands of A/V, communications, and security applications throughout the world,” Fulmer concluded. “We wouldn’t be celebrating our 20th anniversary without our customers, and that’s why we place such a high emphasis on our customer service. VMP prides itself on providing the best products in the industry and by supporting those products with knowledgeable professionals who understand that ‘support’ is the core of our business.”

NOBLE FIDELITY NAMES CHRIS DIXON COMPANY NEW SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA REPRESENTATIVE

Chris Dixon, owner of Chris Dixon Company (CDC)

RENO, Nev., Jan. 29, 2014 – Noble Fidelity (www.noble-fidelity.com), the company known as the first in the U.S.to be 100percentEU RoHS compliant, manufacturing sustainable “Green” (eWaste) In-Wall/Ceiling loudspeakers, is proud to announce that, effective immediately, Woodland Hills, Calif.-based Chris Dixon Company has been named as its new Southern California representative.

“With the recent launch of our award-winning mk ll version of our most popular loudspeaker – the L-85– as well as our other exciting products and new sales and marketing initiatives, we needed to expand our reach into the vitally important Southern California market,” explained Greg Ford, Principal of Noble Fidelity. “Chris Dixon and his staff have a proven track record in this territory, and they have an outstanding line card. We are proud to have the Chris Dixon Company join the Noble Fidelity team and we are excited to get started with them.”

Considered one of the highest performance loudspeaker manufacturers in the custom installation sector of the consumer electronics industry, Noble Fidelity is also considered to be one of the most “Green” in its product design, and implementation. Founded in 2006 in Carson City, Nevada, Noble Fidelity offers customers and dealers alike, audiophile performance from In-Wall/Ceiling loudspeakers together with unparalleled customer service. The company works with dealers, consumers and the design community with acoustical help, CAD drawings and beyond, so that customers capture the best and most tangible virtues of their investment: value, fidelity, ease of acquisition, ease of implementation and ultimately, genuine and enduring satisfaction.

Chris Dixon, owner of Chris Dixon Company (CDC), said that with Noble Fidelity, he saw a great opportunity to provide a higher quality, moderate cost, Home Theater and custom integration/whole house line of loudspeakers for his dealers without being tied to the local large house distributors, thus eliminating the undermining issues associated with such. Current CDC partners include Triad Speakers, Genelec, AcousticSmart theater designs and seating, Audio Design Associates, Terra, and Anthony Gallo Acoustics.

“There are many loudspeaker manufacturers in our industry working to create a foothold or maintain their market share with our dealers,” explained Dixon, a 35-year industry veteran with more than 10 years experience operating his own company and more than 15 years as a manufacturer’s representative, as well as being a CEDIA and IPRO member. “Many of my dealers are looking for an alternative to their existing whole house and/or A/V loudspeaker products that no longer provide them with the performance or customer service they had grown accustomed to. With our economy exhibiting signs of recovery over the past year and our Southern California dealers showing a greater consistency of acquired work, Noble Fidelity has great opportunity to penetrate the Southern California market. Need I mention Noble Fidelity’s ‘No Internet/Online’ sales allowed? We welcome Noble Fidelity into our line-up.”
