New Robust Series Mounts by Crimson AV Provide a Safe, Secure and Smooth-Moving Installation of Large-Format 70 to 90-inch TVs 

GLENVIEW, IL and DENVER, CO (CEDIA EXPO Booth #4025) – September 24, 2013 – Crimson AV, LLC, a leading manufacturer of professional-grade Audio Video mounting solutions, today announced that the Company will unveil a new line of mounts designed for large format TVs at CEDIA EXPO, taking place in Denver, Colorado September 26-28, 2013. Arriving ahead of schedule, Robust Series mounts by Crimson AV are already in stock and available for shipment to authorized dealers and retailers throughout the US, Canada and Mexico.

A necessary element for every TV installation, AV mounts come in a variety of styles and configurations. The Robust Series was developed to fill a void that currently exists in the marketplace and consists of three multi-joint models that accommodate 70 to 90-inch TVs weighing less than 200 pounds. RST90 is a tilt model, RSA90 is an articulating model, and RSF90 is a flat mount model. Lateral shift and post-installation leveling facilitates perfectly positioned TVs, while an integrated cable management system preserves design and décor aesthetics. Each model comes with a 400x400mm interface and is expandable to 400x600mm when the optional AD600 VESA Adapter is used. Priced competitively, the Robust Series mounts feature Crimson’s standard 30-day money back guarantee and industry-leading 10-year warranty, while carrying MSRPs starting at $215.00.

The Robust Series includes three models:

RST90

Tilt mount with triple stud mounting that facilitates the most secure installation possible for heavier large-format 70 to 90″ TVs. Includes a horizontal slide mechanism that helps center the TV on the wall as well as post-installation leveling that compensates for uneven ceilings and enables a perfectly positioned TV. A unique all steel click-in-place feature simplifies the installation by eliminating the need to reach up behind the TV with a wrench or screwdriver to secure or remove it.

RSA90

Articulating mount with a heavy-duty dual arm scissor action that provides better balance and smooth movement for large-format 70 to 90-inch TVs. Post-installation leveling compensates for uneven ceilings as well as the natural sag experienced with 100lb+ TVs. Lateral and vertical adjustments facilitate precision positioning and provide needed installation flexibility for recessed applications, and integrated cable management provides a clean look.

Screen Innovations Black Diamond Motorized is a Unique, Rollable Flat-Panel TV Alternative That Vanishes From Sight When Not in Use; Now Available in 2.35:1 Aspect Ratio up to 138” in Size

Design and décor-friendly flush and external mount options provide integrators the ability to add a large-format television that virtually disappears when not in use to any room, environment or space

AUSTIN, TX and DENVER, CO (CEDIA EXPO booth #3331) September 19, 2013 Screen Innovations (SI), a leading US-based manufacturer of projection screens and associated technologies, announced today that the company’s highly popular and newly-updated Black Diamond™ Motorized screen will be actively displayed for CEDIA EXPO 2013 attendees to witness firsthand. The recent recipient of several new enhancements, Black Diamond Motorized is now available in diagonal screen sizes up to 138” and can also now be configured with either a 16:9 or 2.35:1 aspect ratio with either flush or external mount, allowing integrators to specify the most appropriate screen for the job based on the type of content that will most often be viewed.

Featuring a truly unique motorized design utilizing SI’s proprietary Black Diamond award winning multi-directional ambient light rejection screen technology, Black Diamond Motorized is a sleek and sexy flat panel alternative that delivers stunning images yet disappears when not in use, making it ideal for virtually any environment, aesthetic or application. It has been installed in locations worldwide thus far, serving as a rollable TV that can enter and exit a space with ease. As such, there is no other product like Black Diamond Motorized on the market.

Utilizing one motor, four custom helixes, and a spool of slender aircraft cable, Black Diamond Motorized silently lowers a thin wing containing the rolled Black Diamond screen downward from a recessed ceiling-mounted cassette. The cable-hung wing then stops, and from it, a small tube quickly emerges and lowers itself down to an adjustable, pre-determined image height, leaving only the image space in sight. Because Black Diamond screens do not require masking or any black drop material whatsoever, there is no visible material above, below, or on either side of the screen surface, allowing the images projected on Black Diamond Motorized to appear as though they are suspended in air.

Now available in either 16:9 or 2.35:1 configurations, Black Diamond Motorized screens can be effectively used with ceilings that are up to 11 feet in height. 16:9 versions are available in 80”, 92”, 100”, 106” and 110” diagonal screen sizes, whereas the 2.35:1 versions are available in 110”, 120”, 132” and 138” diagonal sizes. Custom sizes will be made available in the future.

Unlike flat panel TVs, Black Diamond Motorized delivers zero glare and reflection when used in a bright environment, and by virtue of its industry-leading Black Diamond ambient light rejecting screen technology, light scatter is measurably reduced by over 75%. Delivering a next-level entertainment experience while literally disappearing into the room’s existing décor when not in use, Black Diamond Motorized appeals to the senses – and satisfies the needs of - a diverse audience in a variety of Commercial environments. Black Diamond Motorized is the ultimate blend of art + science.

D-Tools Unveiling Workflow-Enhancing Native iPAD® Mobile Quoting App at CEDIA EXPO 2013

Companion app to SIX 2013 enables integrators to generate bids and bring them into SIX 2013 for full project design and management

CONCORD, CA and DENVER, CO (CEDIA EXPO Booth #922) – September 11, 2013 — D-Tools, Inc., the worldwide leader in system integration software, today announced that the Company will unveil a new IOS-based iPad® companion app for its flagship product, SIX 2013. Available in Q4 for partners worldwide, this new release adds mobile quoting capabilities that enable Commercial and Residential AV integrators to generate quotes natively on an iPad then bring them into SIX 2013 for further project design and management. Delivering on D-Tools’ commitment to streamline product updates and enhancements by consolidating them into an annual release, this new companion app will immediately extend the highly functional D-Tools workflow to mobile sales and specification teams.

A native IOS application, the D-Tools iPad® app leverages D-Tools’ extensive manufacturer product library by enabling integrators to access and integrate product category and package data from their SIX 2013 catalog while working with customers in the field. Integrators can enter client and contact information into the iPad app, then walk prospective customers through available installation scenarios in order to create a quote for approval. Once complete, the resulting quote can then be imported into SIX 2013 for additional design work and synchronization. The iPad app utilizes many of D-Tools’ workflow concepts, including the specification of locations and systems, which allows integrators to provide packages or pre-configured systems for inclusion in the quote. Labor and general pricing will be calculated to give the customer an accurate proposal, which can then be signed off for approval on the spot.

“Delivering features that enable our users to create quotes in the field is a natural evolution for us. The D-Tools iPad® app is an important component that ensures our platform continues to meet the growing needs of our expanding customer base,” said Adam Stone, President and Founder of D-Tools. “The iPad app release is just the beginning. In fact, we are already working on additional mobile capabilities that significantly enhance our product roadmap.

Miramar, Florida—September 2013—On September 4 and 5, SIM2 treated dealers to one more world premiere during its US Road Show’s New York City stop, held at the prestigious Waldorf Astoria. This latest innovation, the CRYSTAL CUBE home cinema projector, is, in true SIM2 fashion, a perfect blend of style and technology, with a luxurious and understated glass cabinet that easily blends into any home décor.

SIM2's Big Apple Event

“The CRYSTAL CUBE’s glass-cabinet design brings class and style to any interior, and its compact size is ideal for discreet placement in a room,” said Maurizio Cini, CEO and President of SIM2. “We sought to offer our dealers a refined solution that delivers the necessary image quality for multipurpose rooms for which it was intended. With style and performance working in perfect harmony, the CRYSTAL CUBE is the true essence of ‘Made in Italy.’”

The CRYSTAL CUBE offers full 3D capability with 2300 ANSI Lumens, and includes style-necessary features such as hidden wires into the glass cabinet, which is available in white or black finish.

SIM2's new Crystal Cube

This tour has given SIM2 dealers around the world the opportunity to view SIM2’s comprehensive line of luxury home cinema projectors including the SUPER LUMIS, CINEMAQUATTRO, SIRIO, M.150, LUMIS, NERO, and the limited-edition FUORISERIE.

Also announced during the event: Due to the overwhelming success of the 2013 SIM2 Road Show, SIM2 has added US stops in Chicago and Dallas, following the events in Dubai and Sidney.

Clarus Introduces USB for Crimson Series

Denver, CO—September 2013—Clarus® proudly introduces a USB cable for the Crimson Series, specifically designed for High Speed USB 2.0 computer audio applications. The new Crimson USB will be introduced during the 2013 CEDIA Expo in Denver, Colorado in booth 2321.

The engineering of the Crimson USB cable is the result of careful consideration of the complex issues associated with the design of digital cable, namely the preservation of signal integrity including minimization of jitter and the elimination of noise. To satisfy these design requirements, the Crimson USB cable is manufactured from heavy gauge PCOCC copper, Pure Copper by the Ohno Continuous Casting—a process that yields the purest copper available today. The USB features 20AWG power conductors to ensure there is adequate current flow to USB audio devices.

Clarus Crimson USB

To reduce jitter and timing issues, the Crimson USB cable is manufactured using high-precision wire twisting machines that ensure perfectly match twisted pairs. Skin effect is minimized by plating the solid-core PCOCC signal conductors with 6.1% solid silver. For noise elimination, there are effectively six layers of shielding to prevent the power signal or outside EMI/RFI from corrupting the digital USB signal. This heavy-duty protection also prevents emission of the high frequency USB signal from the cable, which if leaked, would adversely effect nearby cabling and electronics.

Like all Crimson Series cables, the new USB is covered with an attractive black and red woven jacket, complemented by painstakingly meticulous hand-craftsmanship.

Available in October 2013 in one- and two-meter lengths.

MSRP: 1m – $250 and 2m – $350

Clarus digital and analog audio Interconnects, speaker, and power cabling offer a patented design incorporating three distinctly different conductor types, each individually insulated; solid heavy-gauge conductors, flat conductors and spiral-ribbon conductors (with a non-conductive core). By designing audio and digital cables with multiple strand sizes and shapes, Clarus Cables dramatically improves clarity, resulting in more open and transparent sound.
