PSCo Technical Distribution, a specialist UK-based distributor of advanced display products and services, has announced an exclusive partnership with SMS Smart Media Solutions AB (SMS), to distribute the Swedish company’s custom-made video wall bracket throughout the UK. The SMS bracket, which will be sold as a video wall mounting solution named SMS Multi Display Wall Pro, has been designed specifically for the requirements of today’s video wall projects with serviceability in mind. It is the latest addition to PSCo’s expanding product portfolio and is available for all of the distributor’s professional video wall displays from popular Samsung, NEC and Sharp ranges.
With its millimetre accuracy, installation flexibility and easy maintenance access, the SMS Multi Display Wall Pro addresses increasing demands to reduce complexity on video wall mounting bracketry specification and set up. Its feature set and custom manufacture present attractive opportunities for specifiers, designers and installers across a wide range of professional applications, including education, office and conference, retail and display, events and shows, media, hotel and public spaces.
PSCo Technical Distribution worked closely with SMS at its Assessment Centre in Reading to verify the bracket’s exceptional functionality and design for video wall configurations. According to Dan Berglund, CEO at SMS: “SMS Multi Display Wall Pro is the very real fruit of our partnership with PSCo; combining SMS’ 30 years of product development experience for professional installations, with PSCo’s well-recognised video wall expertise, specialist knowledge and support. We have high hopes for the product in the UK market and believe that together with PSCo we will be able to meet these expectations.”
Paul O’Reilly, Managing Director of PSCo Technical Distribution enthuses: “Together with SMS we have developed the highest quality video wall mounting solution seen on the market to date. It has undergone a rigorous testing and verification procedure, fitting perfectly in our ever-growing video wall offering of best-in-class products and technical assistance. SMS is a well-recognised Swedish brand and an ideal partner – we’re delighted that we have exclusivity in the UK.”
The bracket caters for displays from 46- to 60-inch in portrait or landscape options and reduces complexity during both specification and set up. Its modular approach to building and mounting a video wall provides precise alignment, edge-to-edge with minimal seam gap.
A special ‘Pull and Slide’ function provides independent manoeuvrability of each display without the need for tools. It ensures easy access to the back and side of individual displays for cable management or service along with precision alignment of height, depth and tilt via the six-point fine adjustment feature.
The brackets are supplied as a complete package comprising custom made wall frame, display-specific back plates, scissor arms and security locking plates.
