103 inch Plasma TV


Shown here is a 103 inch plasma TV weighing 500lbs descending from a soffit. Once in the viewing position, the TV can then be rotated up to 180 degrees for viewing from the opposite room. Click here for a video showing the 103 inch Plasma TV

Vertically Sliding Painting with TV Slide-Out and Pivot
In this group of photos, a 50 inch plasma tv is powered into viewing position via a series of motorized movements. First, the painting slides elegantly down the wall with no visible means of mechanical support, thereby exposing a slot in the wall where the tv is stowed. Second, the tv slides out of the wall on an angle dictated by the construction of this particular concrete wall. Once the tv has passed the leading edge of the painting’s frame, a third motorized drive pivots the tv to a slight downward angle for comfortable viewing. All of this technology operated via a wireless touch-screen remote control device. When finished with your viewing, all of these functions reverse to hide the tv until its appearance is requested again.

Telescopic TV Lift
These photos show a 61 inch plasma tv descending from an overhead attic space. One complication of this particular installation was the fact that the tv had to lower a total of eight feet but only 4 feet of height in the attic was available for the tv and the mechanics. This required the design and installation of a mechanism that traveled twice its retracted height. This motion is also activated via a wireless touch-screen controller.

The Motoryacht Mylin IV
A pivot-down rigid screen as well as a pop-down video projector disguised as a working lighting module in two locations. Both mechanisms had to "step" around the structural framing of the vessel in order to fit them into the minimal space dictated by "Feadship" of Holland, where the ship was fabricated.

Rotating Platform Couch
Our thanks to "Dick Robinson of "American Standards By The Sea" on WXEL-TV for permitting us to show his lovely apartment where we installed a rotating platform that permits orientation of the seating toward the beautiful view,  home theater, bar or grand piano.

Motorized Teleconferencing System
This shows two of the five mechanisms for the installation in the "Situation Room" of Offutt air force base in Nebrasaka where President George W. Bush ran the country during 911. This project was built per the specifications of "Lockheed Martin". These units raise a 61 inch plasma tv from a conference table and also raise a set of five closed circuit tv cameras "piggybacked" behind the tv to "peek" from above the tv when in the fully raised position. In addition, the custom designed and built  control system that governs the movements of all five mechanisms is also shown.

Motorized Vanity Mirror
In this case, we had a client who didn't want the view behind the "shoji-type" panels to be obstructed by a vanity mirror in a fixed position. The solution was simple. At the touch of a hidden button, this elegantly ensconced mirror lowers to be "out of sight". When required, rises smoothly into viewing position.

Motorized Electrostatic Speakers
A pair of 600 lb 6 1/2 foot tall speakers rise from the oak floor of this "Scarsdale, New York" livingroom. The goal here was to maintain the elegant look of the room, while, at the turning of a key, have speakers rise to an ideal listening position so the client can enjoy his operas. A key control was selected as there were  young children in the house to consider . This way, only the owner can activate the mechanism.In addition, a photoelectric beam prevents the lift from rising if it senses an obstruction in the path of the system's travel.
