  • Mounting Solutions for Flat Screens and AV Equipment: Improving User Experience in Various Settings

    Homes, hotels, hospitals, restaurants, businesses, etc., are all incorporating flat screen TVs and other audio/visual information systems into interior spaces. Whether they are used for individual or public purposes, these systems improve the functionality of the space, the aesthetics of the space and thus the user experience. Mounting solutions allow the technology to be cleanly integrated into the space, even on a wall or ceiling, freeing up useable space and enlarging the area. Audio-visual mounts allow the designer and user to dictate how they will interact with the technology and the space. This program showcases various mounting solutions in different settings and briefly describes how mounting solutions are related to ADA requirements for digital signage. Take the course.
