The Perfect Stocking Stuffer for Everyone!

November 10, 2009

OmniMount’s newest product, the omnimount, is this year’s perfect stocking stuffer for anyone with a TV.  Whether it’s for a college student looking to get more space for their dorm room or for a parent looking to keep the TV from toppling over around rambunctious kids (or just looking to keep the TV up and out of the way of little fingerprints), the omnimount is the new essential item in home décor.  The omnimount is the easiest, strongest, most discreet way to hang a flat panel TV. Unlike any mounting solution yet available, the omnimount combines all of the advantages of a traditional fixed flat panel mount with the highest level of versatility and affordability. With the omnimount, anyone can mount a medium-sized flat panel TV in three easy steps without even having to locate a stud. Users are instructed to simply attach the panel spacers to the back of the TV using a screwdriver, mount the wall brackets with the template provided and hang the flat panel in its place.  The omnimount accommodates any flat panel, 13 to 42 inches and up to 40 pounds in drywall alone, perfect for do-it-yourselfers who want to hang a flat panel TV with total ease and confidence. The product supports up to 80 pounds if mounted into a single stud or concrete.

The omnimount is so easy to use – setting up the mount is almost as simple as turning on the TV since OmniMount provides you with a level, the proper drill bit and even a template to place on the wall so you know exactly where to drill.  In three simple steps, the TV is mounted and ready to go, and retailing at $39.95, it’s even easier to justify purchasing than it is to set up.  Check out just how easy it is to install!

Using video to quiet the “Nay!” sayers

July 10, 2009

OmniMount, a client who specializes in mount and furniture solutions for audio/video products, recently launched a new product – THE omnimount. Unlike the company’s traditional product line that is sold, and in some cases installed, by custom installation professionals, the new omnimount targets DIY-ers. It has a low price point, is available at more mainstream retailers (think Costco and Radio Shack), and is basically fool-proof to install.

Sounds great, right?! Well, the product launched and when publications posted the story (great PR team – wink), suddenly there were a handful of doubters posting comments challenging the strength of the ingenious, small-footprint wall brackets. They would never trust a contraption this small to hold their TV, especially not in drywall! (Keep in mind that the versatile mounting system is designed for small 13-42″ flat panels and has a UL listing for 40-80 lbs TVs).  Not sure if they are doubting the mount of their own DIY-ness here, but it did “tarnish” the otherwise great PR coverage. 

So, OmniMount developed a stress test video – The company has been making great strides integrating social media into their marketing and PR efforts over the past year and this video is just another example of how a picture (er, video) is worth a thousand (press release) words.

… Okay, so it may lack a bit in flourish and creativity, and kind of reminds me of a VH1 pop-up video from the 80’s, BUT it serves it purpose! The omnimount CLEARLY is strong enough to hold even the most obese of (13-42″) boob tubes. A great example of a company listening to its audience to address questions and concerns.

Check out the omnimount on OmniMount’s newly launched consumer website that now allows you (and these nay-sayers) to go right to the source and chat with an OmniMount service representative in real-time, among other user-friendly enhancements.
