Chief Tempo Series

The Tempo™ Series Flat Panel Floor Support System allows quick flat panel installation by using the floor to support the weight instead of the wall. This eliminates the need for wall inspection and remediation, which saves time and money, particularly across enterprise rollouts.

Chief engineers created a slim system that works with Chief’s Fusion and Fit Series mounts and can handle a wide variety of room layouts. Mounts are sold separately.

The two uprights that support the mount can be moved to adjust to outlets or other obstructions on site, while keeping the flat panel placement precisely where the system designer wants it. Cables can be run down through the uprights or behind the middle cover. Markings on the uprights make height adjustment easy.

The lower section houses an included component storage panel and leaves room for an additional panel or rack storage. The lower cover can be customized to match surrounding finishes for superior aesthetics. 

Middle Atlantic Forward

For today’s systems at tomorrow’s speed. Forward unleashes the inner speed demon in all of us. Enabling 5x faster installation of everyday rack builds so you can focus on what matters - delivering the ultimate AV experience. 

Engineered to withstand the demands of site transports, pitch-black back rooms, cable spaghetti & power blips - Forward provides rugged, dependable solutions that get the job done in a fraction of the time while delivering an optimized system you’ll be proud to put your name on.

Put the Forward products to work in our 1st Forward Compatible rack, the BGR Series.

Projecta/Da-Lite Parallax Stratos 1.0

The new Parallax® Stratos 1.0 delivers a high value solution for rejecting ambient light in large scale projection. Offering the freedom to install seamless ALR screens up to 16 feet in height, Parallax Stratos is available in a wide array of core tensioned electric and fixed frame options. This Contrast Based ALR surface rejects up to 80% of ambient light with 1.0 gain for standard throw projectors (1.0:1 or greater).

Contrast Based ALR prevents projected images from appearing washed out by maintaining and enhancing brightness. The gray color and other proprietary design elements in the surface combine to absorb ambient light rather than reflect it. Parallax screens combat environmental and projection deficiencies to produce bright, crisp images.

Now there’s a high value ambient light rejection solution for auditoriums, convention halls and other large venues that require screens larger than 120” diagonal.


Vaddio AV Bridge 2x1 Presentation Switcher

Vaddio’s AV Bridge 2x1 Presentation Switcher is ideal for videoconferencing and lecture capture applications where two cameras are being used.

AV Bridge 2x1 supports two HDMI camera inputs with simultaneous USB 3.0, IP streaming and HDMI outputs. The 12x12 fully mixable audio matrix has mic line inputs, balanced line outputs, HDMI, IP and USB audio, plus 4x4 Dante I/O. Video mixing features configurable PIP and static graphics, which can be orchestrated using triggers, serial or web-based controls. 

The PoE+ powered AV Bridge 2x1 bridges HDMI and audio sources into applications such as Zoom through its USB 3.0 interface, while its RTMP capabilities allow streaming on platforms such as Panopto. Its half rack size can be installed easily under a table, providing simple access for BYOD conferencing.

Luxul AV Series 18-Port Gigabit PoE+ L2/L3 Managed Switch

The AMS-1816P is an 18-port Gigabit switch that easily functions on its own or provides cost effective expandability via its two Gigabit SFP uplink ports to other Luxul switches in your AV rack. The 16 PoE+ ports provide a robust 185W power budget and simple power management to automation touch panels, security cameras, and other PoE-powered devices.

The compact, rack-mountable design, selectable green/blue front-facing LEDs, and variable speed fans ensure aesthetic and quiet operation. The AMS-1816P provides simple installation with powerfully intuitive management, including L2/L3 switching, 802.1Q VLAN support with trunking, and QoS prioritization support.

PoE managed switches also now include port auto-recovery and power scheduling, ensuring system reliability and uptime. Port auto-recovery allows the switch to power cycle unresponsive PoE devices, ensuring system reliability and uptime. Port power scheduling allows PoE ports to be turned on or off on a schedule

Vaddio RoboSHOT 30e NDI

Vaddio has equipped its RoboSHOT 30E PTZ Camera with NewTek NDI®, a technology that allows video systems to automatically detect and communicate with one another over IP, enabling video workflows across Ethernet networks.

The RoboSHOT 30E NDI Camera offers a low latency, high performance solution in the NDI ecosystem. The RoboSHOT 30E NDI Camera is a recognizable video source by other NDI-enabled applications and devices connected to a standard local area network. In addition, the camera’s pan/tilt/zoom and other controls can be accessed through NDI, creating a complete IP workflow for operator control.

NewTek’s NDI technology allows video and audio sources to be shared across a network, eliminating the need for costly direct connections, expensive cable runs, and infrastructure upgrades while turning every source into a destination instantly available anywhere on the network.

RoboSHOT Elite Series Cameras, Vaddio’s next generation of professional cameras, are designed with an 1/2.5-type Exmor R CMOS sensor and deliver striking, high-definition video image quality. Cutting-edge image signal processing (ISP) results in better light-gathering capabilities, incredible contrast and sharp 1080p/60 video, even in dim lighting conditions.

RoboSHOT Elite cameras are equipped with enhanced wide dynamic range, which can help correct for environments with uneven lighting by making darker or over-bright areas in video more visible and detailed.

Chief Impact Floor Mounted Kiosk

Impact™ Floor Mounted Kiosks provide an aesthetic solution for enclosing displays in open areas. Designed with no exposed fasteners while maintaining full access and serviceability. Our exclusive design keeps the display mounted to the frame when opened. Keyed locking security keeps displays safe, and a universal AV Storage plate holds supporting equipment.

The kiosks will be available for 49, 50 and 55” displays in black or white finish to complement a variety of environments. The frame supports up to 3.5” deep displays and back-to-back options are available.

“We’re excited to expand our Impact series to provide more options for site design,” said Luke Westin, Product Manager at Chief. “And they look fantastic!”
