Salamander Designs Announces Advanced Custom Cabinets for UST Systems

Functional and attractive new cabinet category line includes furniture designed expressly for Ultra Short Throw projectors and partners including Dell and Sony.

InfoComm USA— June 7, 2018 — Salamander Designs has announced a powerful and beautiful new solution for UST projector systems. Originally created at the behest of Sony, and later extended to meet the unique needs of Dell and others, this seamless stealth solution can be manufactured to be compatible with virtually all other brands of UST systems.

Featuring a durable and flexible aluminum support chassis, flush top surface, recessed projector cavity design and an active cooling system, plus built-in louvers to vent warm air and keep equipment cool, the advanced cabinet provides fast, easy access to components and wiring for servicing. Like all ultra-high-quality Salamander furniture, it’s available in various colors and finishes to suit any commercial venue and décor and can be custom configured with rapid deployment for vendors, integration partners and designers.

Product development began when Sony approached Salamander Designs for a cabinet suitable for their UST residential projector series. Their product didn't fit in any cabinet on the market—a major hurdle to success. A team of Sony engineers traveled from Japan to Salamander’s 100% solar-powered factory in Connecticut and they were off to the races. After a highly successful launch with a very high attachment rate, the project was deemed a resounding success.
“This is an entirely new, much-needed product category for both commercial and residential markets,” said Salvatore Carrabba, president and founder of Salamander Designs. “And we are the first company to create, develop and deliver any such solution with proven success. After Sony, we were approached by Dell and later Epson for similar solutions. Dell was seeking a cabinet for their 4K laser projectors.”

“We are proud to say we were able to able to deliver in quick, quality turn due to our core modular systems approach,” Sal continued. “This UST cabinet streamlines install of projectors and is an elegant solution which puts all gear in one place—no jumbling of cables—and it keeps all components and speakers in one single, seamless cabinet solution. We now have products that fit 120-inch screens with projectors and allow the complete solution to sit just inches off the wall.”

 Integrators are invited to see the Salamander Sony UST product live at InfoComm by visiting the Screen Innovations booth #C1414. To see all of Salamander’s 2018 commercial lineup, and meet with Salamander’s management and sales team members, visit them at booth #N1516.
