Sanus has announced it will be introducing the Sanus Install Tool Kit iPad app this week during CEDIA EXPO in Atlanta.
The free app is now available for download from the iTunes App Store.
The Sanus Install Tool Kit provides TV mount compatibility and installation assistance for professional audio/video installers to use on the job site while performing custom installations.
“With many custom installers embracing new technologies like the iPad, we wanted to develop a useful application that will make it faster and easier for installers to get assistance in the field,” said Sanus General Manager Jim Wohlford.
The Sanus Install Tool Kit features Sanus’ MountFinder mount selection tool and HeightFinder installation assistant. With MountFinder, installers can easily find compatible mounts for more than 15,000 TVs from a comprehensive list organized alphabetically by brand and model number for quick identification.
Search results are organized by mount type (full-motion, tilting, low-profile or specialty), and users are able to view complete details for each product, including features, specs and price.
Using the HeightFinder tool, installers can determine the exact drilling hole location for installing a mount. They may also change variable information as required for more custom installations simply by providing the desired height of a TV’s top, center or bottom as measured from the floor.
From this information, HeightFinder provides diagrams for quick reference — a useful timesaving feature.
The app also features a “MyNotes” notepad where installers can create and save notes and then reference back to them to recall installation information.
The Sanus Install Tool Kit also provides demo videos, allowing installers to show customers the many benefits of mounting a TV, and to show them which type of mount is appropriate for their application.
Sanus will be giving demonstrations of the app in booth #1136 at CEDIA, September 22-26 in Atlanta. Attendees who participate in the demo will be eligible to win an iPad during a daily giveaway.
