As displays and projectors continue to grow in size and scope, mount manufacturers haven’t missed beat. Most have spent their resources creating larger and more flexible products to hang AV gear in almost any location while protecting it from thieves, hiding it from sight, or shielding it from general wear and tear. With the popularity of digital signage rapidly expanding, mounts are more essential than ever. There is hardly a retail or commercial space that isn’t coupled with at least one display or projection detailing the latest information concerning the consumer. Also, as boardrooms become more about décor, a need has grown for hiding products, thus lift mounts have grown in popularity as well.
