Panasonic doesn’t just make digital signage displays, but the company also proudly uses them in its own offices. In fact, the Japanese electronics manufacturer recently installed a total of nine LED displays in its UK HQ’s reception area, and used Peerless-AV mounts to keep them attached to the wall.
The 3×3 video wall is designed to welcome guests with visually appealing promotional videos, case studies, and other Panasonic branded content. The giant displays are expected to be a visitor’s first impression of the brand when they arrive at the UK HQ, so it was crucial that they made an impact.
Panasonic recently moved to its new offices in Bracknell, and needed to create an impact with the new screens. The problem was that the firm wanted to keep the original walls intact, but also needed easy access for servicing and maintenance. That’s why it eventually turned to Peerless-AV, who provided a floor to ceiling video wall mount system.
Designed around twin 50mm chromed poles, nine Panasonic TH-55LFV70 LED displays are mounted in landscape orientation on DS-VW775-QR SmartMount Supreme Full-Service video wall mounts with quick release.
“Peerless-AV presented us with a versatile mounting solution that could be designed according to our specific needs and ensure a straightforward set up,” comments Jason Plummer, Head of Facilities at Panasonic UK.
“The twin pole system has a solid, quality construction, but with an appealing design, which was important for the location of this installation. The video wall mounts were easy to position and the pop out mechanism made display-to-display cabling and adjustment quick and simple for our install team.”
Peerless-AV’s Twin Pole Modular Series mounting system for flat panel screens fulfils multiple requirements, from a single ceiling mounted display to an unlimited floor-to-ceiling video wall array, using a mix of components and accessories. Installers and integrators can create their system using the Twin Pole Modular Series Configurator tool, available on the Peerless-AV website. The floor-to-ceiling system chosen by Panasonic allows multiple screens to be added to each twin pole, and they can then be positioned at any point with perfect alignment using the Video Wall Mount Adaptor.
The Supreme DS-VW775-QR was chosen as the mount for Panasonic’s ultra-narrow bezel displays because it required no tools, its gentle press to release feature, and enhanced cable management. The mount is also lightweight for convenient handling and incorporates an easy hang wall plate to facilitate a one person install.
The Peerless-AV DS-VW775-QR mounts support the very latest flat panels and interactive displays weighing up to 56.8kg and with as VESA pattern up to 400 x 400 (which can be extended to 600 x 400 and 800 x 400 with adaptors). The Twin Pole system is tested to UL safety standards and can accommodate up to 192kg.
