Next month, the AV industry will turn its attention to Orlando as the latest and greatest AV technology will be on display. At InfoComm 2019, Draper will be concentrating on AV mounts and structures, with examples of core, advanced, and tailored solutions on display.

Core Solutions
SmartTrim™ for Barco’s UniSee display system is a patent pending, design-protected solution co-developed with SMS Smart Media Solutions, a Draper subsidiary in Sweden. It provides a simple and elegant trim remedy for a wide range of standard and custom configurations. Standard kits include configurations of 2×2, 3×3, and 4×4 as well as 2×4 and 3×4. Larger configurations can be created for nearly any application.

Digital projectors can put out a lot of heat, and cooling fan noise can be a big distraction—especially with shorter throw distances putting the projector closer to the audience. With Draper’s Silent Partner projector housing, projector heat and noise are no longer a problem. The Silent Partner housing greatly reduces any sound from the projector, while the thermostatically-controlled fan control ensures proper projector cooling.

Advanced Solutions
Ambient light has traditionally been one of projection’s worst enemies. Before ambient light rejecting screens, as soon as you turned on the lights, the image on the screen washed out, sometimes almost completely disappearing. To highlight the benefits of ALR screen surface technology, Draper will be demonstrating a traditional Matt White XT1000V surface next to our TecVision CS1200X ALR surface. With the CS1200X ALR rejecting 82 percent of ambient light, the demonstration will show its ability to provide superior contrast in unmanaged high ambient light conditions.

Tailored Solutions
What happens when you want to create an LCD video wall, but there is no wall structure in place? The Icon Ace Freestand provides a stable and reliable floor-mounted video wall where there is no wall. Many components ship pre-assembled, making the Icon Ace Freestand much easier to install, and the modular design provides fine X/Y/Z axis adjustment for each display.

For applications where a wall is available, Draper’s new Multi Display Wall lets you build an LCD video wall of nearly any dimension and shape. The modular solution is designed to make exact alignment of the displays easy. The Multi Display Wall system is a cost-effective and simple way of building a video wall or mounting several screens in a row. Simply choose as many mounts as you need. The Multi Display Wall places the display close to the wall and provides fine vertical and depth adjustments, ensuring displays are aligned perfectly.

The Multi Display Wall+ employs simple but ingenious spring-mounted extension units enabling the display to extend out from the wall for easier rear access servicing or exchange.

The secret to a successful mobile LED solution is stability combined with ease of movement. The Draper LED Presence Mobile Cart is an ergonomic and flexible solution that is easy to move and easy to install.

The stable, patented design makes it perfect for large, heavy, and touch-sensitive displays. Side trim provides edge protection, stability, and a clean look for individual units.

Tailored solutions for manufacturing partners
In the world of LED video walls, each manufacturer requires a unique mounting solution. Draper will showcase its work with manufacturing partners to develop two such tailored mounting solutions

Draper partnered with Leyard® to design an LED mounting solution for their TVF Series of LED cabinets. Draper’s ADA-compliant solution features independent X-Y-Z adjustments for fast and flawless installation. Standard kits accommodate arrays of 5×5 (137″ D), 6×6 (164″ D), and 8×8 (219″ D), and are available in custom configurations.

There will also be a curved solution on display. Draper worked with Absen to develop a tailored mounting solution for the Acclaim series LED panels. Draper’s solution provides a faceted curved array through precise alignment between each column of panels. This complete solution is provided with all needed hardware including side cladding and lower ventilated filler panels. It can also be tailored for flying applications and is easily adaptable to other manufacturers’ products.
