New Designs in Mounts and Furniture at CES
If it's true that a broad range of smarter and sharper TVs are beginning to receive an almost unprecedented amount of attention in the CE industry, it stands to reason that manufacturers of AV furniture and mounts will also have more than enough reason to be excited in 2013. Here's a rundown of some of the more innovative furniture pieces and mounts that are being highlighted by manufacturers this year.
Sanus is rolling out out its Alabaster Collection, a furniture line featuring pre-assembled AV stands with hardwood construction. Model ACV53 fits 60-inch TVs and features slow-close hardware, a built-in power strip and a pullout bottom shelf. Also new from Sanus is a 42-inch tall media console and a low-slung, 73-inch wide stand with built-in ventilation and enough room for an 80-inch TV.
