Chief’s Interactive Short Throw Projector Mount and G1 Series Gangable Racks are honored as two of the most innovative AV products on the market

Hong Kong (FEB 2012) - - Chief, an industry leader in mount, rack and interactive solutions, is the winner of two InAVation Awards from InAVate, EMEA’s leading online source for ProAV technology and integration. Presented Feb. 2 at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) 2012 in Amsterdam, the awards recognize the most innovative AV products introduced to the market in the past year.

Chief received the following awards:

Most InAVative Commercial AV Mounting Solution
Chief Interactive Short Throw Projector Mount

Chief’s Interactive Short Throw Projector Mount transforms any projector and existing whiteboard into an interactive platform. By putting interactivity in the mount, Chief Interactive is an economical and long-term solution that allows users to upgrade equipment at any time in the future. Extremely flexible, the solution can be scaled anywhere from 48-94" (122-239 cm) diagonally and is compatible with other popular software and tools.

Most InAVative Commercial AV Accessory
Chief G1 Series Gangable Racks

Introduced last fall, the G1 Series Gangable racks include hassle-free features such as pre-welded ganging nuts and easily accessible hardware, giving installers the ability to gang racks after components are loaded. Other user-friendly features include adjustable front and rear rack rails; optional doors that are reversible, locking, and fit either the front or rear of the rack; and packaging designed to cushion the back of the rack for lay-down loading.

To determine the winners, a panel of jurors representing the InAVation Awards selected five finalists in each category and then turned to AV industry professionals for a final vote.

"We’re very honored to receive this acknowledgement from InAVate," said Robert De Jong, Chief Marketing & Product Manager - EMEA. "Innovation is always on the forefront when designing our products, and we’re pleased that InAVate recognized the results of these efforts."
