Here's what happens when standards aren't followed. A VESA mounting story.
In our current Covid-19 world, movie theater options are dwindling, streaming services are growing, and families are looking to enhance at-home activities. One way to accomplish this without a huge budget is to increase the size of your home theater display by using a projection system.
rp Visuals specifically sought out AV designer, end-user, and service teams to create a new solution, the Wallmate. Wallmate is a simple and easy-to-implement wall mounting solution with three different models to accommodate various weights and sizes of LCD panel displays. Wallmate is a wall mount that solves a multitude of problems for design and integration teams.
I have seen many posts where LED is mounted to plywood on a wall with individual mounts that click/slot together and have no full backer that is through-bolted solidly, horizontally, and vertically, or even better welded. Just glance at the science involved in this approach and it's obvious why this is a very bad idea.
When it comes to ambient light rejecting screens, not all screens are created equal. Especially off-axis. Audience viewing across a standard +/- 45-degree angle really shows the difference.
I am often asked about the relation of video technology and viewer position. The answer is possible to calculate, but first, you have to understand what a pixel is, what parts make it up, and the math that allows all the parts to be calculated.
Rooms barely capable of supporting projection originally become achievable with an optical screen, offering great contrast and image quality. Combine that with the fact that it really is a race to black, optical screens are a must-have in every designer's toolset.
