Flat panel TVs are suppose to be mounted flat to the wall. Sans any type of custom install however, a plasma or LCD is more than likely not going to sit right on the wall; instead hanging out a few inches off thanks to a big mounting bracket. OmniMount just introduced their new Ultra Low Profile Series that hangs the flat panel a mere 1.5-inch off the wall – plus, the TV can tilt 15 degrees. The ULPT-X is going to drop at $329 and can hold up the few 75-inch flat-screens currently on the market. The ULPT-L and ULPT-M carry a $279 and $199 MSRP, plus are designed for up to a 63-inch and 42-inch respectively. Thin is in and OmniMount went on a diet with these new mounts.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

OMNIMOUNT PROVES 'SLIM IS IN' WITH NEW ULTRA LOW PROFILE SERIES OF TILT MOUNTS

Impressive Ultra Low Profile Flat Panel Tilt Mounts Now Available

PHOENIX, AZ.September 5, 2007 – OmniMount, a global leader in both consumer and commercial mounting solutions, announced the anticipated release of three new ultra low profile tilt mounts for flat panels ranging from 26" to 75". Appropriately named the Ultra Low Profile Series, this new line features a remarkably slim mounting profile – only 1.5" off the wall in the fixed position – ensuring that flat panels blend seamlessly into any environment. The ULPT-X, ULPT-L, and ULPT-M support flat panels from 60"-75", 40"-63" and 26"- 42" respectively.

"As more and more consumers make flat panel displays the centerpiece of their entertainment experience, OmniMount will continue to introduce mounting solutions that provide an enhanced viewing experience for end users," said Brett Stenhouse, OmniMount vice president of marketing. "The release of the ULP Series, most especially the extra large ULPT-X for flat panels up to 75", addresses the fact that flat panels are getting bigger and consumers are looking for them to blend into their décor. These mounts reinforce our position of leadership giving users stylish, yet highly functional mounting products."

The ULP Series is manufactured with the best quality standards in the industry including durability, function and design. Available in extra large (X), large (L), and medium (M), these low profile mounts are made from heavy-grade steel, have a durable anthracite powder coat finish and include extruded aluminum end cap that present a clean side view. This line also includes all the features installers are accustomed to from OmniMount: 'Lift n' Lock' for easy installation, locking system for added safety and security, sliding lateral on-wall adjustment, universal rails for maximum compatibility, open architecture for simplified wiring and an installation template.

To make mounting and wiring flat panels even easier, OmniMount has designed an innovative built-in kickstand so access to wiring post-installation requires only one person and no vertical lifting of the flat panel. When in use, the kickstand holds the bottom of the flat panel away from the wall so only one person is needed to complete the wiring. The ULP Series is available now and retails for $199.95 (ULPT-M), $299.95 (ULTP-L), and $329.95 (ULTP-X).

Stenhouse added: "The Ultra Low Profile Series is a great addition to the OmniMount portfolio and users who prefer a fixed mounting solution as a better fit for their viewing environment can also expect two new models for release later in the year."
