C3 Credenza Series Enhanced With Chief Mounts
Middle Atlantic’s award-winning C3 Credenza Series now includes a Frame to Furniture featuring optional integrated Display Mounts that they co-developed with Chief. Customers demanded a more integrated AV system mounting approach using the C3 Credenza to manage cables and storage.
The new co-developed solution combines the best of Chief’s display mounting and embedded AV infrastructure with Middle Atlantic technical furniture. The latest C3 Frame to Furniture Credenza lets integrators take care of the integration work with this frame at their job site or shop, and includes a separately shipped wood kit. This installation method protects the wood, keeping it out of harm’s way while the integrator can integrate the AV equipment.
The C3 Frame-to-Furniture Credenza frames feature floor support legs promoting proper equipment ventilation; the frame legs utilize the floor to bear the Credenza’s weight, eliminating expensive and time-consuming remediation and inspection. The optional C3 Dual or Single Display Mounts boast aesthetically pleasing white covers to disguise the cables and uprights, taking care of cable management in one stroke. A Large Cover Accessory is available to fully enclose the space between the uprights that can be painted to match the wall color.
The C3 Display Mount system is fully compatible with a range of Chief Fusion Series accessories to outfit the installation with cameras, speakers, and conferencing systems. The new FCA810HS and FCA800HS accessories were specifically constructed to mount Vaddio’s HuddleSHOT All-in-One Conferencing Camera system.
The C3 Credenza with C3 Display Mounts also supports ADA compliance. Since Middle Atlantic and Chief both share goals of optimizing the installation experience and offering substantial AV infrastructure support, solutions from the two brands work well together. By co-developing a comprehensively integrated system, Middle Atlantic adds value to both their integration partners and end-users.
Currently, the new C3 Frame to Furniture Credenzas only come in 1, 2, 3, or 4 bays at a 32” height. Wood kits are available in three finish options aligning with current interior design trends and include keyed locks in complementary finishes for extra AV equipment security. Additional finish options and 24” height credenzas will be rolled out soon!
