Flat Screen Installation
Flat screen displays (LCD or Plasma) have come down in price and are very flexible in their design and functions. Usually they come with a stand so if you have a table or shelve to put them on, you are all set. But if you want to mount the flat screen TV on the wall, then you must purchase some type of mount. There are a ton of different options here and ADI has done the research for you! We use mounts from companies like Chief Manufacturing and Sanus Systems. Here are some of the different mounting options:
Standard Mount--A standard mount is the cheapest option but will make the TV stand off of the wall 3-5 inches. Some will allow you to tilt the TV up or down a few degrees.
Zero Clearance Mount--Some newer "zero clearance" mounts actually recess in to the wall so that the flat panel display sits flush on the wall.
Swivel Mount--A swivel mount allows you to turn or swivel the TV left or right. For example, let's say you have a break room and conference room that are separated by a half wall. Using a Swivel mount, you could install an LCD or Plasma TV and turn it based on which room was being used.
Cantilever Mount--A Cantilever mount mounts on the wall, but allows you to pull the TV forward and turn it to the right or left for better viewing. So it can either be up against the wall, or pulled out and turned in either direction.
Motorized Mounts--Motorized mounts are available in a variety of configurations. A wall mounted display can come forward and swivel with the touch of a button. The display could come down from the ceiling or up out of a cabinet. These options and more are available today!
There are many options in projectors, but most likely you will use an LCD or DLP projector. These projectors are cheap, lightweight and have very good picture quality. There are many options in mounting the projector, but usually you will mount it to the ceiling. There are mounts that will mount the projector flush to the ceiling, or if it is a high ceiling, then you may need an adjustable mount so you can drop the projector down to better match the screen position. Finally, you may choose a motorized mount so that the projector drops down from the ceiling with the push of a button!
Projector Screen Installation
There are many options here too. If you don't want to spend any money here, you could just project the image on to a wall. The wall should be painted white or lightly off-white (light grey works well). This will not give you nearly as good picture quality as using a screen, but the price is right (free). There are some companies making specialized paints specifically for this application, and will cost you around $150.00.
Screens come in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials and are either fixed or motorized. A fixed screen is just hung on the wall like a giant picture. With a motorized screen, a touch of a button and the screen deploys from the ceiling. If you are using an automation system, a touch of a button on a touch-screen controller could deploy the screen, turn on the projector, close the shades and adjust the lighting!
