Salamander Designs, Screen Innovations Team to Optimize Projector Placement in Close Quarters
Furniture brand Salamander Designs and projector screen brand Screen Innovations (SI) are partnering to support streamlined solutions for Salamander’s Ultra-Short Throw Credenzas and SI’s made-to-order Solo Pro line of motorized screens, making for systems the companies say are easier to specify, simpler to install and that require no electrician or outside labor.
Salamander’s Ultra-Short-Throw Credenzas matched with SI’s Solo Pro and their optical “ST” material, which is specifically suited for Ultra-Short-Throw projectors, take the guesswork out of deploying display solutions in close quarters in homes, offices and classrooms. The combo, according to the announcement, is literally a ‘place projector here’ solution.
“This is a unique proposition for the integrator and customer alike. No need to fish wires, so it’s much faster to install,” said Scott Srolis, vice president of sales and marketing at Salamander Designs. “Jointly we have made it easy to present, purchase and a speedier set up from start to finish. Just pick the size, select the color and then add the projector of choice for a gorgeous, seamless solution.”
Salamander’s projector credenzas feature a flexible aluminum support chassis, flush-top surface, recessed projector cavity design and active cooling system, plus built-in louvers to vent warm air and keep equipment cool. The advanced cabinet provides fast, easy access to components and wiring for servicing. The projector credenzas are available in an array of current colors and finishes and can be custom configured for integration partners, designers and customers.
The new Solo Pro screens are the first motorized screens with SI’s optical Short Throw material available with two motor options; lithium-rechargeable or low-voltage (24v), which means no electrician or special wiring is required. They are available in sizes up to 100 inches diagonally (in custom ordered one-inch increments) and with 12 designer-selected color options.
“Our dealers tell us all the time that they need a solution that truly gives them the ability to do something totally unique, custom, and cool for their customers, so partnering with Salamander was an absolute no-brainer,” said Skyler Meek, director of marketing at SI. “We are both made in the USA, we actually care about our dealers, and yes, we have the coolest combo to hit the custom integration market in a long time.”
