SAN DIEGO, Aug. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Sore necks and glare due to flat screen TV's mounted too high on the wall are now a thing of the past. MantelMount (www.MantelMount.com), a new kind of TV mount, allows anyone to easily pull a flat screen TV down off the wall, suspend it at eye-level in front of the fireplace & swivel it left or right. This easy-to-install TV mount, launched its Kickstarter campaign on August 18th, and has since surpassed its initial goal of $25,000 by 345%. With several hundred units already manufactured and available, MantelMount plans to send out its first shipment immediately after ending its 30-day campaign on Kickstarter, having already met its goal.
As of yesterday morning, the Mantel Mount Kickstarter campaign has 352 "backers" who have funded it with $86,257 and 21 days remaining in the campaign.
MantelMount's patent-pending construction combines high-quality automotive pistons with lightweight alloys and state-of-the-art counterbalance technology. Allowing up-and-down, tilt-and-swivel adjustability, MantelMount gives its users the preferred view of any large flat screen plasma, LED or LCD TV. It even comes with paintable covers that hide wall hardware to ensure any home or office remains aesthetically pleasing.
The inventor of MantelMount, an avid sports and movie viewer, came up with the concept after suffering from neck pain caused by watching his flat screen high above the fireplace. He set out to address that and other issues with flat screen wall mounts he'd seen on the market; particularly that there was little to no movement or flexibility to maneuver the mount to an eye-level position for the perfect view, regardless of where the viewer was sitting.
"After running a simple Google Ad Words campaign, in a matter of weeks I sold out of the 100, high-cost units I had manufactured. That's where Kickstarter can help garner pre-orders on a grander scale," said Inventor Brian N.
MantelMount was aiming to raise at least $25K in crowd-funding to increase production and lower manufacturing costs. Pledges begin at $5 and range in amount, each with guaranteed deliverables, once the goal is achieved. "Backers" have the option to pledge for a single MantelMount unit, starting at $199 and ranging to $249, depending on the amount of pledges offered at each level.
For the perfect view every time
Placing a TV above a fireplace moves the image you're trying to watch well above eye level. Cranking your neck into an unnatural position, day after day can cause neck pain and chronic headaches. And then there's the issue of glare unless you a flat screen TV from straight on. MantelMount allows you to avoid these situations, altogether. No matter where you're sitting/standing/laying/cheering in front of your TV, the positioning of the screen is yours for the taking.
MantelMount is the most premier over-the-fireplace, pull-down flat screen TV mount available on the market to date. Allowing up-and-down, tilt-and-swivel adjustability, MantelMount gives you the preferred view of your flat screen plasma, LED or LCD TV.

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
