Systems integrators can conceal and reveal TVs simply and affordably with Nexus 21’s broad range of innovative, installation-friendly drop-down, pop-up and swivel lifts.
SCOTTSDALE, AZ and BARCELONA, SPAIN ̶ January 25, 2024 ̶ Nexus 21 is helping systems integrators extend their reach into new markets with several revolutionary motorized TV lifts and drop-down mechanisms set to debut at ISE 2024, Stand #2L500. Designed and engineered to smoothly and quietly adjust the position of an attached TV for optimal viewing while minimizing its impact on the surrounding décor, the products in Nexus 21’s portfolio deliver incredible functionality and aesthetic appeal to residential and commercial projects.
Pushing the possibilities even further, Nexus 21 introduces at ISE 2024 several new models uniquely designed to overcome challenging design and structural situations often faced by AV integrators. No matter the height of the ceiling, available wall space, ceiling access, or location of windows, Nexus 21 has a solution.
“Many of our new motorized TV mounts were developed based on requests from our dealers,” says Cory Lovett, Nexus 21 CEO. “No two homes are designed exactly alike and installation requirements vary widely, so when our dealers ask for new features and designs, we immediately go to work to create a mount or a technology that meets their needs. The products and technology we’re demonstrating at ISE 2024 are a reflection of this mission to support our dealer network with high-quality, versatile, and installation-friendly motorized TV mounts, along with technology to simplify control and integration.”
All-New Nexus 21 L77i Drop-Down TV Lift for Ceilings and High Walls
When wall space is at a premium, finding room for a wall-mounted TV can be next to impossible. A highlight of Nexus 21’s ISE 2024 exhibit, the new L77i Drop-Down TV Lift, solves this issue. Dealers can choose to mount a TV above the ceiling or in an enclosure high on a wall. At the touch of a button, the mount’s motorized mechanism lowers the TV from its hiding spot into view. “For the first time, integrators have multiple viable drop-down options, which is particularly useful in situations where the ceiling is too high, or there is limited access above it,” Lovett explains.
The Nexus 21 L77i lift extends as far as 52 inches and can carry a TV as large as 86 inches and 68kg (150 lbs). “There has been a dramatic increase in requests from dealers and end-users for overhead mounting solutions,” Lovett continues. “With TVs becoming lighter and slimmer, now is the perfect time to consider mounting a display overhead. Our highly versatile L77i, as well as our L77ix, which incorporates a motorized swivel, were designed specifically for these popular applications.” No matter the project requirements, the L77i is quick to deploy, arriving at the jobsite preassembled to help cut installation time in half.
All-New Nexus 21 DL-65 Series Pop-Up Swivel Mount for Extra Heavy TVs
Certainly, TVs are getting slimmer and lighter, but there are still plenty of applications that require a heavy-duty lift to carry beefier models. Outdoor entertainment areas where TVs need to pop-up from inside a cabinet often require a lift with enough power to move weighty enclosure tops and TV/soundbar combos. For this reason, Nexus 21 developed its DL-65 Series, a complete line of motorized pop-up lifts for use in covered outdoor settings.
ISE 2024 attendees will be the first to see the newest member of the DL-65 Series, the DL-65x. It combines the same powerful dual motors, quiet lift technology, and installation ease as earlier models, with the addition of a newly developed extra-weight swivel mechanism. This feature, which mechanically swivels a display to a preferred position, increases the weight capacity from 45kg (100 lbs) to 79kg (175 lbs) and can extend up to 97.7 cm (38.5”). The inclusion of sleek actuator technology ensures no visible tracks or gears in the extended position.
Other models in the new DL extra-weight, pop-up series include the DL-65en and DL-65ens, which are designed for the inclusion of custom cabinetry to cover the back and sides of the TV. The DL-65en elevates a TV but with no swiveling action; the DL-65ens elevates a TV and swivels it manually.
Nexus 21 CL-65e Ceiling Flip-Down and Extend TV Lift
Ideally suited for environments with high ceilings and end-users who want a flexible viewing experience, Nexus 21 offers its CL-65e Ceiling Flip-Down and Extend TV Lift. Combining two distinct motions, the lift flips down a display mounted horizontally, either flush with the ceiling or above it, then lowers it 24 inches. The mount, which accommodates TVs up to 65 inches and 45kg (100 pounds), can be mounted in the ceiling framing or bolted directly to the surface, giving integrators two installation options.
Nexus 21 L-65x Pop-Up Lift with Motorized Swivel
A popular conceal-and-reveal solution for living room furniture and foot-of-the-bed cabinets is the Nexus 21 L-65x. This near-silent, easy-to-install pop-up lift offers two programmable preset positions to raise and swivel the attached TV with one touch of a button on the included handheld remote. It holds TVs up to 65 inches and 45kg (100 lbs), extends nearly 98 cm (39”), and swivels 360 degrees, enabling the screen to be viewed from a completely different vantage point.
All-New Nexus 21 Integration and Sensor Technologies
The physical lifting and lowering of TVs of all sizes and brands covers only the mechanical aspects of Nexus 21’s solutions. Technology also plays a vital role in proper positioning, control, and integration, and Nexus 21 introduces to ISE 2024 attendees several new technological features to enhance installation ease and end-user enjoyment. Nexus 21 will preview its new integration module, which requires no commitment to a single control method—IR, IP, or contact closure—when specifying and installing a lift. The integration module, which comes with a Bluetooth remote, supports all three, dramatically simplifying installation and configuration for systems integrators. It is expected to be released Q2 2024.
Safety is a primary concern when installing any motorized mechanism into a residential or commercial setting. The inclusion of highly sensitive accelerometer and gyroscope technologies in Nexus 21’s built-in lift sensors provides ultra-responsive collision detection and stopping capability.
