Display Development Kicks Off Cool Promotion

Batavia, NY—June 2013—Display Development, originator of the Residential Architectural Video System category, has announced a special dealer promotion with the company’s proprietary Smart Cooling System. For a limited time only, dealers who order the avielo optix, optix 120 (3D), optix SuperWide 235, avielo kroma, avielo helios Studio Edition, helios or Display Development HD3 or HD4, are eligible to receive one Smart Cooling System at no charge. The promotion runs through June 30, 2013.

“It’s no secret that projectors require normal room temperature and proper ventilation for best performance and long-term reliability,” said Jim Burns, co-founder and president of Display Development. “The Display Development Smart Cooling System is custom engineered for each specific installation to provide a true architectural integration solution. By offering a safe and extremely reliable cooling system, our dealers avoid the most common reason for system failures and customer complaints, ultimately resulting in higher profits by spending less time addressing these issues.”

Display Development's Smart Cooling System

For specific program details, current dealers should contact their representative. Prospective dealers interested in learning more about Display Development’s architectural solutions should email the sales team directly: info@displaydevelopment.com.

Benefits of the Display Development Smart Cooling System (SCS)
• Thermal management is the most critical element of reliable projector installations.

• While most projectors are manufactured to be pole-mounted in free space, the SCS allows a true architectural solution with proper concealment.

• Each Display Development Smart Cooling System is engineered to connect directly to the exhaust to ensure the hot air is properly removed from the installation location and both the heat and noise are removed from the listening environment.

• Smart Cooling Systems are thermostatically controlled to maintain an operating
temperature of within 3 degrees of optimum.

• Smart Cooling Systems use large, overcapacity, in-line fans that rotate at lower speeds for whisper-quiet operation, and that can support long duct lengths to provide additional flexibility for unconventional projector placement.

Meridian Announces DSP520 In-Wall Model is Now Available to Order

Meridian Audio has announced the availability of its new DSP520 Digital Active In-wall Loudspeaker, one of a new range of models introduced to set new standards in custom installation sound quality.

The Meridian DSP520 in-wall offers the ability to create a discreet installation or mix and match them with Meridian’s freestanding loudspeakers such as the newly updated DSP7200 to create a superior Digital Theatre system.

As with every Meridian loudspeaker design, special attention has been paid to ensure the highest quality audio performance. The DSP520 is built with the drivers mounted into the front extrusion of the enclosure itself, while a separate case houses the electronics and amplifiers.

The DSP520 can be mounted horizontally (the wide-range driver is centrally mounted making it ideal for use as a horizontal centre) or vertically, in a wall or ceiling. It includes a paintable magnetic grille (mounting frame, installation back box, etc.) and offers scope for adjustment enabling the entire assembly to be fitted into almost any type of wall, blending seamlessly with any décor.

Display Development Moving On Up

Batavia, NY—March 2013—Display Development, innovator of the Residential Architectural Video System category, is thrilled to announce the expansion of their facility in Batavia, New York. The additional 4,000 square feet will accommodate manufacturing, light assembly, engineering, and distribution.

“We were very fortunate that the space adjacent to our current location became available,” said Jim Burns, president of Display Development. “Our business is exploding, and we needed to accommodate the demands of this growth. While it’s tempting in this real estate market to purchase space, we didn’t want to invest in something we may outgrow—it’s an exciting time for our company.”

Display Development recently introduced their IW7 and IW8 in-wall display systems, which offer extreme flexibility for an unprecedented value. The IW systems create a display solution far superior to a flat panel in terms of image size and fidelity, and overall experience, with no impact on a room’s décor—when not in use, the system can be completely concealed.

Display Development is located at 56 Harvester Ave, Batavia, New York, 14020. You can also find Display Development at Twitter (@DisplayDev) and on Facebook.

Tributaries® Revamps HDMI® Cable Line

Orlando, FL—March 2013—Tributaries®, the acknowledged leader in value-high-end connectivity for home and professional A/V systems and custom installations revamps its HEC line of HDMI cables with improved cable constructions to provide high-performance high-speed HDMI. New additions to the line include the IHEC cable for long distance runs and HX102, patent pending, dongle-style extender, available separately or together as part of the IHEC-X kit.

Tributaries new IHEC HDMI Long Run Cable and HX102 Patent-pending Dongle-style Extender

All HEC HDMI cables benefit from new conductors, connector shielding, stronger connectors, and thicker gold plating on the contacts, while the Series 6, 8 and new IHEC receive the added advantage of Full Body Armor™, a protective covering for the connector circuit.

Remaining from the previous design are the wildly popular shorter connectors, making tight space placements easier as well as the BOSS elements (raised bumps on the connector) which help the connector fit tight into its receptacle, and help maintain equal pressure in the receptacle to keep the connector from shifting around. The lack of lateral movement keeps the Hot Plug Detect from being disconnected.

Features of the new IHEC (MSRP: $400 – $1,250)
• Certified to support Ethernet, 3D, 4K(24Hz) and ARC
• All conductors are solid 24AWG cable ensure accurate long length signal transfer
• 2.5% silver-plated HC-OFC wire provides superior digital performance
• UL® CL2 jackets for in wall use
• 15 microns gold-plating on contacts
• Under zinc die-cast connectors the circuit is protected by Full Body Armor™ and heavy copper foil shielding

Features of the new IHEC-X Kit (MSRP:$735 – $1,385)
• Kit contains long length IHEC and HX102 cable extender
• Extends 12-bit/color 1080p up to 98 feet using 24AWG HDMI cable
• Extends 8-bit/color 1080i up to 130 feet using 24AWG HDMI cable
• Unit is connected after long run
• Includes 5 VDC/1A USB power supply with USB/AC power cable

“Reliable HMDI over long distances continues to challenge installers and Tributaries is committed to providing our dealers with the viable solution as the technology evolves,” said Joe Perfito, President of Tributaries. “We determined that a multi-level cable approach was no longer feasible, therefore we designed one cable, the IHEC, to go the distance. By doing so, we had to increase the gauge size but kept the electronics separate. The HX102 allows us to add electronics at the end of the long run between the cable and TV. The a major benefit of this design is in the case of an electronics failure, it’s an easy swap to replace without having to pull the long run of cable from the wall.”

Tributaries’ Unveils Improved PROFIT Connectors

Orlando, FL—January 2013—Tributaries is proud to introduce the all-new PROFIT connectors. The ever-popular PROFIT connectors have been vastly improved now requiring 50% LESS effort for compression and constructed of high impact plastic. The improvement is made possible thanks to the merger of “Pro-Connect” and “Snap N’ Seal” who were purchased by Belden, these two fantastic designs have combined to yield a new connector with the performance of “Pro-Connect” and the ease of “Snap N’ Seal”.

The new connectors feature an elegant gunmetal finish standard for all models. In the coming months, new signal identifier color rings will become available which will conveniently fit into the indented area just below the connector head. Connectors will only require one silver-crimping die to assemble the connectors; this enables the number of components to be kept down only to the essential items, simplifies installation and eliminates the need to swap out crimping dies on the compression tool.

The new style will retain the key features such as: visible entry for RCA and BNC and, 360° radial compressions. The connectors will continue to work with a number of different industry compression tools. While Tributaries won’t be the only manufacturer to offer this new connector, it is the only manufacturer to offer unprecedented quality control performed in its Orlando-based headquarters. Tributaries also guarantees all compression connectors fit on the coax sold by the company.

The newly designed F, RCA, and BNC for RG59 and RG6 are now available. Connectors for TRIBMINI will be available later this year.
