Building on the recent announcement of offering greater sales, support, and inventory in EMEA, Middle Atlantic Products, a brand of Legrand AV, will display its latest AV innovations that are expertly engineered to meet the needs of regional installations at the Legrand AV stand 2-C50 at ISE 2019. Making its EU debut is Middle Atlantic's High Power DC Power Distribution series that features higher, up to 300W, power capacity, and the stylish, slim-profile C3 Series Credenza. "As part of our commitment to better serve customers globally, we're not only focused on launching new products but also broadening access to tried-and-true Middle Atlantic solutions as well," said Timothy Troast, vice president product management, Legrand AV, Middle Atlantic Products. Limited availability Middle Atlantic will demonstrate the power of removing wall wart clutter "That's why ISE attendees will see more space devoted specifically to showcasing the power, rack, mounting, and storage products that previously had limited availability and that are now ready to transform integration experiences in Europe — all with the technical specifications, certifications, and design that support European installations." In an eye opening, side-by-side rack comparison, Middle Atlantic will demonstrate the power of removing wall wart clutter and how technology professionals can maximise the utility of every AC outlet as space continues to be a premium. The presentation's High Power DC Power Distribution series expands the industry's most comprehensive universal DC Power solution for commercial and residential AV with the power options and availability for North American and European installations. Maximum power The solution provides maximum power to support more devices, while also eliminating messy, space-consuming, unreliable wall warts from the AV design. Available in 200W and 300W models, both units offer high current capacity to an industry-leading quantity of outputs — up to 24 devices — maximising the same voltage in a single unit, 5V, 12V, or 24V, or splitting between 12/24V. The robust solutions deliver reliable multilevel protection on both AC input and DC outputs with individual redundancy built-in to ensure maximum reliability The robust solutions deliver reliable multilevel protection on both AC input and DC outputs with individual redundancy built-in to ensure maximum reliability. The multimount design can be installed in an available 1RU space or at the back or side of the rack for zero-U mounting and ultimate installation flexibility. A supported input voltage range of 100-240VAC, 50/60 Hz additionally provides design flexibility for most global applications. Modern aesthetics Throughout the Legrand AV stand will be real-world applications of core commercial and residential spaces, showcasing the collective strength of Legrand AV's portfolio. Within the conferencing vignette, attendees will find the C3 Series Credenza, which is an expansion of Middle Atlantic's purpose-built furniture solutions engineered for system reliability and maximum mounting flexibility. The new credenza boasts a 10-inch-deep profile that marries modern aesthetics with Middle Atlantic's signature rack frame and equipment mounting options for today's devices. By partnering with regional suppliers, Middle Atlantic offers customers a credenza that complements European design trends and ensures they have the style desired, while also assuring installers that sensitive equipment for conference rooms or media rooms is protected.
Middle Atlantic Products announced that its Proximity Series Sliding Mounting Plate was recognised with an ISE 2018 Best of Show Award by Installation Magazine. The Proximity Series Sliding Mounting Plate addresses the growing complexities in residential and commercial applications that stem from ongoing decentralisation of systems often located at the display. The editors of Installation Magazine, which covers permanent audio, video, and lighting systems integration within the global market, judged the awards on the show floor. "To be recognised within the global market for the Proximity Series Sliding Mounting Plate is a real honor for Middle Atlantic," said Timothy Troast, VP of product management, Middle Atlantic. "After identifying the challenges integrators are facing, we developed a solution that is perfect for mounting small devices behind the display, while providing ease of access with the sliding mechanism. The award serves as a confirmation of our mission to provide innovative solutions that enable integrators to deliver amazing AV experiences with every installation." To be recognised within the global market for the Proximity Series Sliding Mounting Plate is a real honor for Middle Atlantic" Optimises unused space The Proximity Sliding Mounting Plate mounts directly on the wall behind the display, optimising unused space to store and reliably support today's AV devices — without adding bulky storage furniture in the room or the need for an equipment closet. The plate mounts directly to the extrusion of Middle Atlantic's Vision Display Mount Series multi-display wall and ceiling mounts, increasing both installation flexibility and ease of maintenance. The Sliding Mounting Plate tucks discreetly behind the display, concealing equipment out of view for a clean, elegant aesthetic. The new plate from Middle Atlantic is designed to ensure integrators can quickly and easily install and maintain their customers' systems. Integrators just slide the plate out from behind the display, unhook it from the sliding mechanism, and mount small devices onto the 15-inch by 10-inch mounting space. Adding to the convenience, the plate design allows integrators to service the system without having to remove the display or without being impeded by a small working space. This saves time on the job and eliminates the requirement for additional team members who would be required to safely remove and reinstall the display. Mounting system In addition, the Proximity Series Sliding Mounting Plate features the industry's most well-known and sought-after mounting system — Middle Atlantic's patented, tool-free Lever Lock system. Speeding up serviceability, Lever Lock is expertly engineered to accommodate, conceal, and reliably mount a range of AV components without integrators lugging additional tools onsite.
