Ibiza 2017 - The Ultimate Weekend!




Back in April we launched our Ibiza incentive to our UK distributors, with the aim to deliver the ultimate weekend to a lucky few. This caused a lot of excitement on the sales floor with everybody wanting the chance to win a weekend in the sun! Each month a winner from both Midwich and Exertis Medium were selected based on their performance against individual targets. By the end of August we had our Ibiza group consisting of six lucky winners along with our Peerless-AV sales team members Chalene and Ellie, who couldn't wait to spend the weekend at Ibiza's s closing parties.

Flying out on the Thursday evening everybody was excited to get there and make the most of their weekend in Ibiza. On the Friday a VIP Pool bed area was reserved at Ocean Beach Club and Saturday's agenda was a morning of R&R followed by the Zoo Project's closing party which was great fun, everybody got dressed up and looked fantastic!

The return flight to London was booked for 7am Sunday, which as you can imagine - everybody was thrilled about! But overall Ibiza 2017 was a brilliant success, a great group of people enjoying some well earned R&R together before returning back to work.

Watch this space to see what we get up to next year!

Versatile, easy to install mounting solutions for retail in-window displays




Peerless-AV offers a range of discreet and attractive mounting options for store window advertising. The new Floor-to-Ceiling Cable Mount, has been installed for a pharmacy digital signage roll out in the UK. Supporting 46”- 65” flat panel displays in portrait or landscape orientation, the Cable Mount was chosen for its minimal depth and quick, simple connection to joists for a secure and stable foundation. 

 Specified by technology distributor and specialist service provider Exertis Medium, DSF265P Floor-to-Ceiling Cable Mounts have so far been installed with 47” and 55” DynaScan screens in portrait orientation in NHS pharmacies in Bordesley Green in Birmingham, and Tooting, London. The screens run content 24/7 so passers-by the store front have access to useful health notifications and targeted messaging relating to health products and services. Suspended on high tensile steel wire, the mount features two keyhole slotted adaptor plates which attach at any point along the cable and Kwik-Grip™ cable hardware instantly sets the adaptor height without the use of a tool. Kwik-Loc™ self-locking cable joiners ensure a quick and simple connection to ceiling joist, truss or strut, and cable tension can be tweaked using turnbuckles for a precise and level display.

Peerless-AV’s Modular Series presents an alternative mounting option for in-window advertising. The Single Pole Floor-to CeilingModular System was recently chosen by Pioneer Group to mount premium quality 55” high brightness displays at iSmash branches in London to attract and entice passers-by. The system consists of a mount, adaptor and a 50mm chrome pole fixed to heavy duty ceiling and floor plates, which can be mounted to wood or concrete.  Easy to install and tested to the highest UL safety standards, the system’s versatile design allows displays to be positioned at any point along the column for perfect viewing height. Additional displays can be stacked on the pole and a back-to-back mounting plate is available for dual screen applications.
