Targeted for the educational market, SANYO’s new MT-EDU 101 and MT-EDU 102 projector mounts offer an all-in-one package for teachers on a budget. They deliver the impact of 50-watt two-channel amplifiers and two powerful 25-watt rated two-way speakers for high-performance capabilities. This effectively eliminates the need to use a typical projector’s internal speakers or a separate audio system in order to gain the same effect.
The high-efficiency ported speakers, which use 5” woofers and directional tweeters, are tuned to provide optimal sound coverage in large rooms, including a standard 32’ x 32’ classroom. Designed to avoid overwhelming listeners in the front rows with excessive sound levels, the system provides excellent intelligibility throughout the room without distortion and microphone feedback.
Multiple external audio sources, including wired and wireless microphones, are easily accommodated without complicated wiring arrangements. A line level microphone jack, two sets of stereo RCA inputs and a mini stereo jack are located on the side of the mount chassis, and each input has an individual gain preset control.
For short throws, the MT-EDU101 extends 7 to 27 inches from the wall, and for longer throw distances, the otherwise identical MT-EDU102 adds an extension pole to place the projector 37 to 67 inches from the wall. These can be mounted either to single or dual studs on 16”, 18”, or 24” spacing, and can also be mounted to concrete.
A universal projector mounting mechanism allows the mount to be used with any short-throw projector, including the SANYO PDG-DWL100, PDG-DXL100, and PLC-WXL46 projectors. It provides a pitch adjustment of ±16.5º, a 7.5º roll adjustment, and a 41º yaw trim. Total weight capacity for the mounts is 50 lbs.
An integral cable routing system allows concealed management of signal and power cables, which pass from the projector through the arm and into the wall mount. Security for mounting of additional AV equipment such as PC, Mac or control modules is available by using additional security hardware that fastens to the wall mount.
