MANTELMOUNT TO INTRODUCE UPGRADED VERSION
OF FULLY AUTOMATED MOUNT AT CEDIA 2018
MM855 Offers Major Enhancements Over Previous
Works With More Home Automation Systems
CARLSBAD, CA (July 23, 2018) – With a number of significant enhancements over
its predecessor, the MM850 – including smoother operation and integration with
more home automation hubs – the new MM855 Smart Mount™ from MantelMount is the premier, fully
automated, full-motion TV mount available.
The MM855 will be showcased in the MantelMount booth (#1339) at
CEDIA 2018, September 6-9, at the San Diego Convention Center.
Introduced at CEDIA 2017, the MM850 marked
MantelMount’s entry into the home automation arena. It featured a powerful home integration module
allowing the user to control TV viewing positions through popular home
automation systems, providing the ultimate in convenience and optimizing the
viewing experience. The wired, built-in
Ethernet created a true “plug and play,” set–up process for installers
let customers easily download software updates. Dual
Electronic Actuators supplied the “muscle” to adjust the mount’s vertical
and horizontal positions, while the Favorite
TV Position Memory feature let users store up to six preset positions.
Relying on feedback from the installer community, MantelMount
MM855 Smart Mount, which incorporates all of the features of the MM850 along
with significant, field-tested upgrades:
Ø Software Enhancements: The numerous software enhancements incorporated into the MM855 provide the unit with substantially smoother operation and overall stability.
Ø Improved Heat Management: During installation, motorized mounts are subjected to far more operational cycles that they would be during normal use. The improved heat management capability of the MM855 allows for more frequent operational cycles during set-up and installation without the risk of overheating.
Ø More Accurate Power Sensing: The upgraded capacitor of the MM855 helps suppress unwanted electrical noise. This translates to more accurate power-sensing ability and subsequently, ensures that the unit positions the TV with greater precision.
Ø Additional Control Systems: The MM855 can now be controlled through five of the most popular home automation systems on the market, including Control4, URC, RTI, Savant and Crestron. (NOTE: Like its predecessor, the motorized MM855 can also be controlled through an included 433 MHz RF remote control.)
The MM855 retains two unique safety features for installation over
a fireplace: a Heat-Sensing Thermocouple mounted near the television that
measures heat from a fireplace; and Auto Temperature Sensing Technology, which
automatically retracts the TV to a fully-raised home position when the
thermocouple detects an unsafe temperature for electronics (ideal for
unattended, thermostat-controlled fireplaces).
According to Lee Marc, CEO of MantelMount, the introduction of the
MM855 represents the company’s ongoing commitment to product improvement and
“Our philosophy has never been to sit still and be satisfied with
the status quo,” said Marc. “We’re always looking to improve our mounts, no
matter how well they perform or how satisfied our customers might be.
“In creating the MM855 Smart Mount, we did the same thing, keeping
all the best parts of the MM850 and enhancing other areas based on the valuable
input we received from our integrator base.”
MSRP of the MM855 is $1,999. MantelMount
also offers a five-year limited warranty on the product.
MantelMount is the premier
wall mount for flatscreen televisions. MantelMount not only offers tilt
and swivel but also allows user to easily pull the TV down off the wall and
position it in front of the fireplace at eye level. The product’s unique
functionality and design has earned it numerous accolades, including CE
Pro’s Best TV Mount, Electronic House Product of the Year and a Hearth
and Home Vesta Award. In addition, the MM850, the company’s
first fully automated, received two awards at CEDIA 2017: the CE Pro Best Home Theater TV Mount and Residential Systems Outstanding Product
