Winning in two separate categories, the OmniLite Series™ OL200FT and the OmniMount each took home an award.
New York, NY – November 11, 2009 – OmniMount, the global leader in commercial and consumer A/V mounting and furniture solutions, was honored last night with two CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards for its OmniLite Series OL200FT and the omnimount in the Eco-Design/Sustainable Technology and Design and Engineering categories, respectively.
The CES Innovations Design and Engineering awards are presented to manufacturers in recognition of the most innovative consumer electronics in a number of industry categories. These highly coveted awards are seen as an industry hallmark, and since 1976 have given manufacturers the opportunity to showcase their newest products and designs to independent designers, engineers and members of the trade press.
Geoff Miller, OmniMount president, states, “At OmniMount, we pride ourselves on pushing the envelope to constantly offer our customers the most innovative mount solutions available. Concurrently, we’re focused on leading our category by introducing products that meet today’s eco-friendly considerations. Both the OmniLite Series and the revolutionary omnimount are testaments to those philosophies and we are honored that the CEA has recognized as much.”
The OmniLite OL200FT has been engineered and packaged with the environment in mind so it does more, while using less. It's everything eco-conscious consumers need to mount a flat panel with confidence, but without waste. OmniLite products are the first environmentally-conscious audio/video mounting solution offered by a major U.S. manufacturer. Through advanced in-house design, OmniMount was able to reduce the amount of material used by 32 percent, while increasing the overall strength of the mounts. These products reduce waste by featuring condensed packaging and streamlined hardware kits. Installation instructions and mounting templates for the entire line are printed on the inside of the boxes, eliminating the need for unnecessary paper. OmniLite products also boast 100 percent recyclable internal packaging with no plastic bags, post-consumer recyclable outer box material and non-petroleum based ink for all package printing.
The OmniMount is the world’s easiest, strongest, most discreet way to hang a flat panel TV. Unlike any mounting solution yet available, it combines all of the advantages of a traditional fixed flat panel mount with the highest level of versatility and affordability. With the omnimount, anyone can mount a medium-sized flat panel TV in three easy steps. Users are instructed to simply attach the panel spacers to the back of the TV using a screwdriver, mount the wall brackets with the template provided and hang the flat panel in its place. The omnimount accommodates any flat panel, 13 to 42 inches and up to 40 pounds on drywall, perfect for do-it-yourselfers who want to hang a flat panel TV with total ease and confidence. The product supports up to 80 pounds if mounted into a single stud or concrete.
