Riddle me this: “Until I am measured I am not known, yet how you miss me when I have flown.” The answer: Time
Time, once spent or wasted, can never be recovered. Its fleeting nature makes it a valuable commodity. When it comes to projects, time is literally money—as failing to complete work on schedule can result in financial loss. This is quite evident in the AV integration space, in which time must be used wisely. A mounting provider must go beyond delivering a superior product, to providing the solution in a manner that accounts for all worst-case scenarios and possible mishaps to ensure the project’s timely completion.
It’s common for retailers, restaurants, and other commercial companies to set hard launch or opening dates that require having digital signage up and running. However, modern video walls are intricate installations fraught with error risks, particularly around the mount. These challenges can mean the difference between meeting or missing a critical deadline. AV professionals best position themselves for success by teaming up with a mounting provider who not only sells a bracket but also understands time-saving solutions that facilitate a clean and hassle-free installation.
A mistake that directly affects time planning is the misconception that all mounts are the same, when, in fact, each project is unique, and thus requires a specific mounting solution. AV pros must balance developing a custom solution that enables a successful and timely mount with the limitations of a client’s budget. The ideal mounting solution provider offers tailored products that adjust for schedules, exigencies, and nuances. A collaborator who thinks about the video system holistically and in an integrated manner optimizes the installation time.
At Premier Dedicated Solutions (PDS), one of our favorite partners has been the AVSIGroup, a company that designs systems and technologies for communication, collaboration, and display.
We’ve joined forces on numerous projects, including a direct-view LED installation at an oilfield service company, which leveraged a custom solution. This installation required the best of our stock mounts, and we also tailored large scissor mounts for 12 feet by 8 feet Leyard TWA video walls, allowing the panels to extend out for servicing since the configuration didn’t permit rear access. By planning and strategizing together about the installation’s logistics, we didn’t waste time on mounts or hardware that would ultimately fail to meet the client’s needs and ruin their schedule.
Collaborating with the right mounting solutions provider economizes time. PDS develops the best solutions for display installations by working with our AV partners to understand the challenges or special considerations of a project.
