Managing Power

IsoCenterThe growing partnership between Middle Atlantic (booth 5701) and Exact Power (6341) was on display, and educational for me, when Middle Atlantic PR guru Kevin Handerson introduced me to Exact Power’s president/chief engineer/resident genius, Bob Schluter. Bob proceeded to explain the new IsoCenter Isolation Transformer System built by Exact Power, but which will shortly be distributed by Middle Atlantic, and I found myself, for maybe the first time, understanding a little bit about power management, and more importantly, finding it fascinating. more…

ARCHIVE: Chief Marketing

mb01.jpgDealing with marketing professionals is a daily occurance for a journalist, so it takes a lot to impress me, but I do have to offer kudos to the marketing team at Chief Manufacturing, led by marketing manager Karen Mefford. The reason for this pat on the back is Chief’s keen understanding of the need for, and importance of, useful online tools for customers, dealers, and the media to use in order to fully absorb the Chief message. Thus, this week at InfoComm, the company debuted the latest in a sophisticated suite of web products created by its three-person, in-house web development team–a tool called Chief MountBuilder, which Chief is calling “a visual product configurator” of use to dealers, installers, and others incorporating Chief technology into jobs.

You can check out the free, downloadable configurator for yourself at www.chiefmfg.com/mountbuilder, but the point is that MountBuilder is just the latest online tool from a company that has been, as it celebrates its 30th Anniversary this year, at its core, an engineering firm dedicated to making a very highly specialized product. Chief, in recent months, also debuted its “Online Classroom,” its “Education Center,” its “Knowledge College” and its “Design Center,” among other useful web tools. more…

World’s Biggest Mounts

Premier Mounts TWM 103The other day, I wrote about the start of the proliferation of Panasonic‘s giant 103-in. Plasma displays. Today, I learned how they mount those suckers. It’s hard to miss, actually, if you visit the Premier Mounts booth (C2411). They have a huge suspended ceiling mount (the SCM-103 model) hanging over the booth from the Convention Center’s rafters, and they have a huge wall mount (the TWM-103 model) on the side of the booth labeled, to no one’s surprise, “the world’s largest tilt wall mount.”

Both are used to hang Panasonic jumbos, including the mall space examples in New Jersey and New York that I mentioned the other day. Considering those giant mounts are a niche application usable currently with only one kind of giant screen, though, I was curious how and why the product might be profitable for a company like Premier. more…

Sliding racks and USB connectivity

glideturn_drawerextended_300dpi-jpg.jpgHi, All:

It has been a whirlwind day already. I just came from the Stantron booth (C3487) where they demonstrated thier sliding and rotating racks for me. As one who has installed a lot of rack mounted equipment in some pretty tight spaces, I’m impressed by the fact that these seem to have been designed by the people who have some of the same permanent rack indentions in their bodies as I have. It has to have been someone who has actually done these installations to think of some of the things these racks do. They have a little click button at the bottom center on the front that unlocks the rack and then the whole deal just slides straight out and rotates around. All you have to do is make sure you install the equipment with enough extra cable to allow the rotation. There’s plenty to know even about wiring these but if it’s done right, these racks can save a huge amount of grief, expecially when it comes to upgrading with new gear and taking out the old stuff. I wish they had been around all along!
