Middle Atlantic made it easier than ever to mount devices directly behind a display at ISE 2017, with the company unveiling the Proximity Series Mounting Plate.

The Proximity Series Mounting Plate may not sound like the most exciting product, but it’s a simple solution to a problem many integrators face. At ISE 2017, CE Pro Europe spoke with Middle Atlantic Products’ Mark Tracy, who noted that the company isn’t in the business of racks and mounts, and instead is in the business of solutions.

That’s exactly the word you could use to describe the Proximity Series Mounting Plate, which allows users to mount media players to the back of any display. That means users no longer need to find a dedicated space for their digital media signage players, or Apple TV devices – as they can be mounted out of sight and out of mind.

“Every year, more devices are moving closer to the display,” says Tim Troast, VP of product management at MiddleAtlantic Products. “The Proximity Mounting Plate, together with our Vision Display Mounts, offers a better option for supporting these devices conveniently and reliably with the signature mounting features found in our rack solutions.”

The Proximity Series Mounting Plate comes integrated with most of the standard-profile mounts in the VDM series. As a universal display solution, it can also be used with existing mounts in applications that don’t require customers to upgrade the entire mount. Delivering professional support for these applications, integrators no longer have to spend time and resources fabricating their own solutions, such as screwing devices to the wall behind the display or fastening them to the mount.

The Middle Atlantic Products’ VDM series includes 17 mounts in a range of sizes and in fixed, tilt, motion, standard-profile and low-profile options, accommodating VESA patterns up to 800 mm. The series comes standard with safety features that keep the display securely attached to the mount during and after installation, and all the hardware needed to ensure a professional installation. The series’ motion mounts feature up to 24in of reach, tilt adjustment, wall plate cover, and built-in cable management. An integrated kickstand provides accessibility for servicing of the low-profile models.
