VMP Announces Building Information Modeling (BIM) to Security Contracting/Integration Market

LAS VEGAS, Nev., April 4, 2013 — Video Mount Products (videomount.com), a leading provider of mounting solutions for the A/V, communications, and security industries, is proud to announce that they have teamed with Autodesk to provide Building Information Modeling (BIM) content for many of its most popular products. VMP will debut its BIM program to the security market at 2013 ISC West, held in Las Vegas, Nev. from April 10-12 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, booth 1042.

“BIM technology and acceptance has grown significantly over the past several years,” says Keith Fulmer, President of Video Mount Products. “The addition of BIM content to the AutoDesk Seek repository is not just another tool in the toolbox, but a viable solution supporting the architectural, engineering, integrators, and contracting communities in the security market.”

In addition to being hosted on AutoDesk Seek, the content will also be available for download through InfoComm iQ as well as from the videomount.com website. More than 30 BIM models are currently available for VMP products, including models for flat panel mounts, equipment racks, projector mounts, and non-penetrating roof mounts.

Traditional building design has been largely reliant upon two-dimensional drawings (i.e. plans, elevations, etc.) whereas Building Information Modeling extends this beyond 3D to a virtual “5D” platform by enhancing the three primary spatial dimensions (width, height, and depth) with time as the fourth dimension and cost as the fifth, making the use of BIM a crucial factor for design, implementation, and sustainability with equal importance placed upon manpower and profitability.

“BIM allows all the necessary elements to be integrated into a project during its initial planning stages and flow through to proposed future development, before a hammer or nail are ever used in the project,” Fulmer continued. “By utilizing VMP’s BIM models, all the knowledge necessary to make for a successful end-result via the sharing of electronic data between all parties is at the users’ fingertips. This results in more efficient and cost-effective planning and preemptive problem solving in real-time ‘5D’.”

For more information or to access VMP’s BIM models, visit AutoDesk Seek, InfoComm iQ, the Video Mount Products website, www.videomount.com, or call 877-281-2169.

T3 Innovation Launches Revolutionary New Power Prowler(tm) 3-In-1 Electrical Fault Finder

Camarillo, Calif., March 29, 2013 — T3 Innovation (t3innovation.com), a leading provider of advanced handheld test equipment for the cable/telecommunications, datacom/networking, electrical design and maintenance, and residential/CEDIA custom install markets, is proud to introduce the new revolutionary 3-In-1 PLR600 Power Prowler™ fault finder. The Power Prowler is scheduled to ship April 2013.

“The Power Prowler eliminates the need for carrying three separate testers, allowing a technician to have a digital multimeter, cable fault detection, and a live event detection all in one unit,” said Ron Vogel, T3 Innovation CEO. “By not only combining multiple necessary tools, such as these three distinct yet sometimes necessary testers into just one device, the end result is not just time saved, it has the potential to save repair facilities millions of dollars in down time. Additionally, it eliminates frustration, by finding events on cable that only occur during field use and when the electric systems are actually carrying voltage and current.”

The PLR600 Power Prowler features and specifications include:
• Made in America
• Safety rating up to 600Volt Cat III
• Large graphical color LCD display
• Easy to use user interface with international function symbols
• Control over power saving features such as auto-off and backlight dim
• Built-in list of cable types and their VOP values
• Audio indication when a change/fault is detected
• Favorites list for commonly tested cable types
• MSRP: $649.95

The Digital Multimeter functions support DC Volts, 10M Ohm input impedance, AC Volts, 10M Ohm input impedance; automatically selected AC or DC Volts with a lower impedance; continuity with audible signal for low resistance; Ohms measurement, and data logging and graphing capability options.

Fault Detection provides 1) a quick picture of a cable’s condition, measuring distances to shorts or open faults in a cable or the cable length, 2) features library of common cable type VOP values, 3) Calibration mode calculates the VOP once the length of a cable is inputted, and 4) Loop testing with audible indication of changing readings.

The Live Event Detection provides a continuous view of live and energized cable conditions by sampling a circuit continuously to detect changes. Power Prowler detects, locates, and characterizes cable faults, plus has the ability to time stamp these events.

“With the complexity of today’s electrical, data, voice and video signal carrying systems, you need a tool that is fast, accurate, and easy-to-use to see down the wire and show the exact conditions that exist,” added Vogel. “The Power Prowler not only combines three necessary technologies into one portable handheld unit, but it also allows for quicker, easier, safer, and more cost effective maintenance no matter the task at hand.”

For more information, please visit www.t3innovation.com or call (805) 233-3390.

About T3 Innovation
T3 Innovation is dedicated to bringing the latest and most effective technology to the world of handheld test equipment. T3 Innovation is committed to high quality U.S. manufacturing that will help us address market needs around the world.

Our connector not only meets, but most importantly, exceeds these requirements. With the Tele-TitanXg and our 10Gig connector you will achieve an optimal termination every time.”

RJ45 Cat6A/10Gig shielded (P/N 106190) connector specs include:
• Max cable OD: 8.5mm/0.335in.

VMP New Low-Profile DVR-LB3 DVR Lockbox Now Shipping; Featured at ISC West

STEVENSVILLE, Md., March 8, 2013 — Video Mount Products (videomount.com), a leading provider of mounting solutions for the security, commercial, CI, residential, and pro audio/video markets, is proud to announce that it will feature the new DVR-LB3 DVR Lockbox at 2013 ISC West, held in Las Vegas, Nev. from April 10-12 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, booth 1042. Now shipping, the low-profile DVR-LB3 has an MSRP of $236.95.

“The DVR-LB3 is the next in our series of DVR lockboxes, following our popular DVR-LB1 and DVR-LB2 lockboxes,” explained Keith Fulmer, president of Video Mount Products. “The DVR-LB3 features all the security benefits of the others in the series, but its low-profile makes it perfect for today’s smaller DVR’s and NVR’s and installations with limited space restrictions.”

VMP has included a single fan, as well as a mounting location for a second fan should additional thermal management be required. Multiple vents with vent blockers for active or passive thermal management have also been incorporated.

Additional features of the VMP DVR-LB3 lockbox include:
• Interior dimensions: 17.2in W x 21in D x 5in H
• Rack mountable on two or four posts with a 3 RU overall height
• Interlocking lift-off lid
• Key-locked hinged front door
• Black static resistant powder coat finish

According to Fulmer, high-end electronics have become a staple in today’s security, CI, residential, and commercial marketplaces. As these expensive technologies and equipment, including DVRs, find homes in more and more commercial and professional settings, additional security measures need to be taken to insure these electronics are not harmed or stolen.

“Our DVR-LB3 is the next generation DVR lockbox, built upon the principle of creating peace of mind for those who require DVRs be installed in settings that may be prone to theft or vandalism, but at the same time allowing for the flexibility of a smaller housing solution,” Fulmer concluded.
