More user guides, data sheets and more

We've added more than 10,000 user guides, data sheets, warranty information and more to help you make informed product decisions.

Ability to quickly find related products

Easily locate accessories associated with the products you need. For example, if you're interested in a certain camera, we'll show you what mount you should buy along with it.

Greater consistency across product listings

We've added data and refinements to drive consistency within our product listings across all categories so that you can more easily find the items you need. And, for our U.S. customers with access to our mobile app, these naming conventions are mirrored in the app for easier search of products there, too.

These enhancements are just some of the improvements you'll see over the coming months.

Da-Lite_RGB-3-Mar-24-2021-07-57-01-57-AMDa-Lite’s cable drop feature, SightLine™, available with the tried-and-true Tensioned Advantage® and Advantage electric screens, gives the impression of a floating screen. A suspension system in its single

roller design features 3 or 4 thin cables eliminating the need for black drop – the black border above the projection screen. While the market is accustomed to specifying drop distance upon ordering, now vertical placement of the screen can be variable as the cables accommodate a range of drop distances up to 70” between the ceiling and the top of the screen – making ordering a snap. What’s more, this feature creates usable space above the viewing area to preserve architectural interests and provides the opportunity for camera/speaker placement. Enhanced aesthetics, painless ordering, smooth installation and future proofing for height adjustability – this is the fine line between status quo and jaw drop.

Monitor Audio Climate Garden Series

The Climate Garden Series is comprised of high performance, super discreet all weather satellite speakers and subwoofers, using Monitor Audio's proprietary driver technology. Its ground level installation amongst shrubs and trees delivers a luxurious blend of unobtrusive aesthetics and natural full range audio in gardens of any size. 70/100 V line arrays of up to twelve satellites per subwoofer makes the Climate Garden System expandable with additional satellite and subwoofer sets according to garden area.

The Climate Garden Series features two satellite models and two subwoofer models.

The satellite speakers are a robust high sensitivity design built to deliver richly detailed hi- quality mid/high frequencies. Engineered to withstand the most extreme temperatures and weather conditions, their rigid conical cast-polymer enclosure houses the company’s signature 1” (25 mm) C-CAM Gold Dome tweeter co-axially aligned with a 4” MMP (CLG140) or 6” MMP (CLG160) bass-mid driver. The horn-shaped housing provides excellent audio directivity in free air conditions when positioned close to the garden surface on a bracket/spike assembly, which neatly encapsulates and channels the connecting cable into the ground for a discreetly installed result.

The passive subwoofers are optimized for discreet sub-surface installation and feature a proprietary Monitor Audio band-pass design which incorporates an internally loaded 12” C-CAM driver (CLG-W12) or 10” C-CAM driver (CLG-W10) which sits in a waterproof rotationally-molded polymer enclosure buried below the garden surface (the CLG-W10 also includes the option to sit on a patio, for those who do not wish to bury the subwoofer).

The subwoofers’ tight bass frequencies will join the clean mids and highs of the surrounding satellite speakers for punchy and articulate full-range garden sound.

TechLogix_logoTechLogix Enables 8K Installations with New Fiber HDMI Cables

TechLogix Networx, a leader in innovative audio-visual, security, and datacom solutions, is enabling real-world 8K HDMI installations with the launch of MOFO™ HD21 Series fiber-based cables. TechLogix MOFO™ HD21 Series cables are now available.

8K pushes the limit of copper-based technology. Uncompressed 8K HDMI requires up to 48G bandwidth, and traditional HDMI cables and twisted pair extenders simply experience too much loss and interference over distance for reliable, native signal transmission. Fiber eliminates these issues. TechLogix MOFO™ HD21 Series cables feature a true fiber optic core for interference-free, uncompressed 8K HDMI signal transmission up to 30m without the need for in-line boosters or power supplies – simply run the MOFO™ cable and connect it to your source and destination devices. Plus, the fiber core can be spliced and re-terminated with standard fiber optic tools and connectors. A MOFO™ cable used for HDMI today can be re-purposed for network, control, or other audio/video formats tomorrow.

To further validate performance, TechLogix received HDMI 2.1 certification from the Forum and HDMI Licensing Administrator guaranteeing HD21 Series cables support the entire 8K specification, including 48G 8K60 Dynamic HDR, HDCP 2.2, 3D, Deep Color, VRR, QMS, QFT, ALLM, DSC, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, ARC, and eARC. The fiber core inside TechLogix MOFO™ cables also improves durability and handling. HD21 Series cables support a 70lb pull-rating and 1.8 inch minimum bend-rating, and the plenum-rated jacket accommodates in-wall installation or in conduit larger than one inch in diameter.

Further camouflaging the keypad, the trim of the WALL-SMART mount can be painted to match the color and texture of the wall surface. Constructed of moisture-resistant MDF and engineered for easy insertion and removal of the keypad, the mount ensures optimal performance and control of lights, automated window treatments, and audio systems. WALL-SMART’s flush mount for Lutron’s Pico keypad rounds out its portfolio of other Lutron wall mounts, including versions for Palladiom, Alisse, and seeTouch keypads.

“Our new wall mount customized for Lutron’s popular Pico keypad offers designers, architects, and home tech integrators yet another option for integrating Lutron control products seamlessly into home environments. Combined with the small size of the Pico, our mounts make the keypad virtually disappear into the wall surface,” says WALL-SMART Co-CEO and Founder Galia Ben-Dor. “Like all of our concealment solutions, the Pico mount delivers the clean, minimalist appearance that so many homeowners want today.”

wyrestorm-logo-300x59-2-2WyreStorm Launches Three of the Most Powerful AVoverIP Solutions from the NetworkHD Series - NHD-600-TRXF and NHD-610-TX & RX

WyreStorm’s AV over IP solution, NetworkHD 600 series continues to lead the SDVoE technology in the AV market. The powerful and reliable NetworkHD 600 series is still the prime device of choice for many professional AV integrators. To further strengthen the lineup, WyreStorm introduces the brand-new NHD-600-TRXF, a 4K60 10GbE SDVoE fiber transceiver. The new device was redesigned from the ground up specifically to suit the modern AV industry’s requirements and is the culmination of much of the innovative design expertise and advanced production techniques gained over the past years of AV over IP development.


With more integrators and installers preferring transmitters and receivers in one unit, the new TRXF allows you to transmit and receive A/V simultaneous through a single device or be programmed to act as a dedicated TX or RX, setting a new gold standard in SDVoE distribution! The SFP+ fiber connector supports up to 300m (984ft), 10Gbps transmission distance for extremely long reach commercial applications with zero latency using Genlock technology. This unique product was built entirely with new, up to date modern chipsets, to seamlessly process 4K Lossless Dolby Vision video and Dolby Atmos audio, while consuming less power than its predecessor. Flexible options, like full speed USB 2.0, allow full control over how this transceiver operates and reduces the number of separate models you need to manage.

Moving on to the NHD-610-TX and NHD-610-RX, those two newly released Transmitter and Receiver models are a new upgrade for the very powerful but aged NHD-600 series Transmitter and Receiver. The NHD-610’s can process and distribute lossless 4K60 4:4:4 and HDR over 10GbE using SDVoE technology. The new NHD-610-TX has a Dante/AES67 transmitter built in which can be isolated to a separate LAN port on the TX, making it easier for integrators to connect the TX to a dedicated Dante network. Both the TX and RX also have full speed USB 2.0 like their fiber brother, the 600-TRXF, in order to allow extension for keyboard & mouse applications and even compatibility with webcams, touchscreens, and media storage.

The entire NHD-600 series are interoperable and can be installed into the same ecosystem, allowing to mix and match models based on design requirements.
