Da-Lite has announced the availability of an optional ‘Agility Battery Motor’ for the new Tensioned Designer Contour Electrol and Designer Contour Electrol electric screens. The on-wall or ceiling mounted models come in sizes up to 110 inches in 16:9 and 113 inches in 16:10 aspect ratios. The company says this motor option is ideal for retrofit installations requiring an alternative to hard wiring.
“There are many environments, such as historic buildings, where running conduit for electric screens is challenging or even impossible,” said Wendy Cox, director of product management at Da-Lite. “For our Tensioned Designer Contour Electrol and Designer Contour Electrol screens, the Agility Battery Motor eliminates this issue and the need for an electrician. The result is reduced project costs and a screen that is ready to go right out of the box.”
In a move that looks set to help improve Denon‘s fortunes, the Japanese manufacturer has tapped into Nike’s expertise with the hiring of Trip Randall as the brand’s new president. The company’s plan is “to revitalize marketing, boost direct-to-consumer sales, bolster existing sales channels, and introduce exciting new products.” Randall worked at Nike for over two decades where he drove the company’s e-commerce strategy, launched several “industry-changing” innovations, and was responsible for $1.4 billion of business domestically. Denon hopes Randall’s direct-to-consumer legacy will help promote a new era of growth for the CE brand.
“Finding the right individual to lead the iconic Denon brand was not an easy task, but after months of searching, we are convinced Trip is the ideal match,” said Bart Muller, COO of Sound United, parent company to Denon. “He has a great understanding of how to balance direct-to-consumer expansion while strengthening the ties we have with the specialty retailer market. In our short time working together, Trip has already demonstrated strong leadership skills and a sense of creativity that we know will be a core asset to Denon’s growth.”
