SL220 Automated Projector Lift Named Best in Class by Audio Visual Industry

Minneapolis, MN. USA (FEB 2011) - - Chief, the industry leader in professional AV solutions, has announced receipt of a 2011 InAVation Award for its SL220 automated projector lift. Announced in a ceremony at the RAI Diamond Lounge in Amsterdam on Feb. 2, the award honors the SL220 as the most innovative product in the commercial AV mounting solution category.

The SL220 automated projector lift was selected as one of five finalists by a panel of jurors representing the InAVation Awards and was voted as the top product in the category by peers within the audio visual industry.

Recognized for its ease of install, and its ability to be mounted in a fraction of the time of conventional projector lifts, the SL220 projector lift ships completely assembled from the factory. Made of lightweight aircraft-grade aluminum, the SL220 requires a single technician to install, with the process consisting of three simple steps.

“During the design and development of the SL220, we were really focused on creating a unit that could be installed without the expense of a lift rental or the need for several technicians,” said Derek Derks, product manager at Chief. “We are very pleased to see that the features and benefits the SL220 has to offer have been recognized by the AV community.”

More than just an easy install, the SL220 outperforms conventional projector lifts in its category and offers multiple control options, including push-button operation, a low-voltage controller and an infrared remote control. The SL220 is compatible with a wide range of Chief custom and universal projector mounts, allowing users to customize the unit to their specific needs.

Recognition at the InAVation Awards is not new to Chief brand products; in 2010 Chief’s WM230 Short Throw Projector Wall Mount won the InAVation Award for best commercial or residential mounting solution. Visit for more information.
