The modular design of the video wall mount allows for additional display sections to increase the array to the desired size.

The CTM-MS2 was also used throughout the studio for a secured, yet adjustable flat-panel mount.

SNY updated their studio set for “DailyNews Live!”, a daily sports round table talk show. Premier Mounts’ innovative video wall mount was chosen to serve as a the centerpiece for the new set.

VCA and SNY worked closely with Brian Mungo, Premier Mounts’ Sales Rep, and the Premier Mounts’ custom design and manufacturing team to come up with the final custom solution. Alex Blanding, Tom Healy, and Larry DeFazio helped to select and implement nine NEC 55-inch ultra narrow bezel monitors in a 3x3 configuration in a custom-built video wall mount.

What was it like to work with Premier Mounts?

Alex Blanding, Senior Director of Engineering for SNY, stated “[Premier Mounts] customized the mount to our exact needs and was very helpful in guiding us through the installation and display alignment process.”

How well did Premier Mounts help to meet the deadline of the project?

Premier Mounts met the deadline posted by SNY. The video wall came in on time, as scheduled to VCA, allowing for an on-time delivery to the client.

What was the biggest challenge, and how did Premier Mounts help with the success?

According to Larry DeFazio, “The largest issue was cost vs. quality.” Although there were some challenges, “the response times, turnaround and final product was extremely stable."
