French accessory brand Erard has introduced into the UK a range of remotely operated motorised mounting systems and stands for flat screen TVs.
Buyers can choose from traditional wall mounts to TV stands which can be can be raised or lowered as well as rotated left and right.
Simplest in Erard’s Motion range is the marvelously named Twisto, a wall-mounted motorised bracket made from heavy-duty aluminium. TVs can be rotated left or right by +/- 20 degrees for plasma screens or by +/- 30 degrees for LCD screens.
Top of the range is the Kubik Twist & Lift. As well as rotating left and right, a mounted TV can be raised or lowered by up to 67.5 cm on a glass platform.
Other models in the range include the intriguingly named Be Bop Twist, and the Basik Twist, which offers screen rotation but without any height adjustment.
“These products offer a high level of sophistication and add to the viewing ambience,” enthuses Neil Kumar, marketing manager of UK distributors Hypex Electroniques. “They were designed following ergonomic research into how people watch today’s flat screen televisions.”
