  • Introducing Project TV Stands by Optimum International

    Drawing on more than 20 years of experience creating innovative premium furniture, Optimum International has launched The Project Range of TV stands and home entertainment equipment cabinets.

    Project encompasses all the practical experience Optimum International has accumulated over the years. It includes design features and enhancements which offer functional solutions beyond what you’d expect of their prices.

    Each cabinet is built from hand-finished glass panels, which have a striking allure that creates a focal point for the room they’re in. The cabinets can house your set top boxes and games consoles with all their entailed cabling hidden from view.

    Optimum International has even created a cabinet designed to store a record player and several LPs. So, it’s time to crack out the vinyl again!

    The clean design lines are crisply defined by a satin aluminium trim on the hand-finished glass-faced panels of the equipment compartment doors. This unique innovative design not only looks modern and sleek, it also offers high resistance to common scratches and prevents the edges of the glass panels being chipped.

    Each cabinet is mounted on hidden soft roll wheels for smooth movement and has adjustable feet levels to set it firmly in place. All cabinets also come with integrated ventilation and cable management for your technology, as standard.

    To discretely keep sound bars out of sight, model designs are available with either a half height, or full height acoustic audio fabric door, instead of the standard glass door.

    The fabric options allow sound bars, or individual speakers, to be conveniently placed alongside other equipment you need to house. For equipment which’s controlled remotely, the fabric is infra-red friendly, so the signal will seamlessly pass through it.

    You can also remotely control equipment enclosed in solid doors, thanks to Project’s easy-to-install and use IR repeater module. So you’ll have a truly intelligent home for your technology, without any clutter.

    Optimum-Project-Modular-TV-Cabinet

     

    The Project Range will initially include 8 models, each available in a choice of 4 high gloss finishes in Brilliant White, Gloss Black, Graphite Grey and Fjord Blue. It will also have 3 matt colour finishes in Saffron Yellow, Midnight Blue and Cardinal Red. All these are shown below:

    Choice-of-colours-for-optimum-project-tv-cabinets

     

    The Brilliant White finish has no green/blue tint thanks to our hand-selected quality controlled glass. The Acoustic Audio Fabric Cloth is Black as standard. Glass finish samples are available on request, so you can check the colour works alongside the rest of your home décor. In the near future, Optimum International plans to offer customers a bespoke colour finish of their choice, at a modest extra cost. If this is an option that appeals to you, please contact us to discuss it.

    Project TV Stands are now on show within AV4Home’s showroom in Mansfield Woodhouse and the full range is available online to be viewed in detail at this address: www.av4home.co.uk/optimum_project

  • How to Tidy TV Cables - Cable Management Zen

    You’ve spent ages making sure you’ve bought the right size TV, with the right sound and features.messy-cables  You’ve chosen to hang your new purchase on the wall to complete your own private cinema. But with all of this technological joy comes one problem…the unsightly spaghetti junction of cables connecting devices up.

    With the TV mounted on the wall and set-top boxes typically down below in a TV stand, there’s always a noticeable and often ugly gap where the black wires bridge across.
    Here are our top 5 tips on how to achieve cable enlightenment:

    Tip #1: Upgrade your cables
    cs22917-40_2If you’re wall mounting your TV, don’t just try and stretch the standard cables that come with it. Make life easier on yourself and buy the right size cabling for the job or cable extensions. This will reduce the amount of space needed and will reduce the likelihood of any damage through stressed connectors. Products like this HDMI adapter really helps in tight spaces.

     

    Tip #2. Colour coding/labels
    Instead of wiggling bits of cable up and down to identify the right cable, add cable labels or colour coding so you know exactly which cables do what.

     

    Tip #3. Separate your cables
    Have you ever tried to find a plug socket you can use and pulled out the wrong plug? This is not the area you want to scrimp and save. Remember we’re trying to achieve Entertainment Centre Nirvana here. Spoil yourself and get a Multiple socket extension lead specifically for your entertainment system and ensure it has surge protection for your precious AV devices.
    Bonus tip: It’s also a good idea to separate your power cables from audio/visual cable as it reduces the likelihood of interference between the two if they run on analogue signals.

     

    Tip #4. Cable ties declutter
    Cable ties are a quick way to organise your cables into related groups e.g. Audio, power, system separates. Not only is this really handy when trouble shooting or when moving your equipment, they are also great at tying up loops of excess cable which may get caught, snagged or in the way.

     

    Tip #5. Cable Management columns
    Vogels-Cable-10-Cable-Management-System-HD-1_1The final tip is to hide your neatly tied and organised cables using a

    cable management column. Instead of exposed cables running to the floor, you can finish off all of your hard work with a professional cover matching the aesthetics of your room.

     

    With a bit of time and patience on a rainy day you can stand back and be proud of a mounted TV without the mess of cables ruining the look. Your technological investment has been finished off with a professionally organised cable management system that will be the envy of all of your friends.

  • Mounting TV’s in a Recess

    How do I mount my TV in a Recess? Recess mounting a new thin LED, LCD or Plasma TV provides a stunning centre piece for any room without taking up any of the space within the room. The main problem with mounting in a recess is getting access to the rear of the screen should cables need upgrading or changing or connecting new cables when new equipment arrives. Many standard brackets provide a simple hook on mechanism meaning that the screen will need to be lifting off the bracket and supported whilst cables are plugged in. This can be difficult due to the size of larger TV’s and can be a worrying experience given the cost of new TV’s.

     

    We have a few TV brackets that will solve this problem. These brackets provide a ‘push to release’ mechanism makes getting access to the rear of the screen very easy. Simply push the TV and it will gently come away from the wall whilst still being completely supported by the bracket. Once cables have been added or changed, simply push the bracket into place. Job Done.
