NAB 2007 ANNOUNCEMENT: APWMayville™ Expands Stantron® Product Line for Professional A/V and Broadcast Facilities


MAYVILLE, WISCONSIN – Announced February 5, 2007 – APWMayville™, maker of the industry standard Stantron® racks, will introduce its broadened Stantron product line at NAB07 (Las Vegas Convention Center, April 16-19, Booth #SU7220). The introduction of the Stantron Presentation Rack demonstrates APWMayville’s continued commitment as a leading designer and innovator. The Presentation Rack is ideal for Pro AV facilities and also useful as a broadcast rack in smaller facilities and backup applications. Its combination of form and function echoes the tried and true features of the Stantron E-Rack for professional broadcast facilities, also central to their NAB07 display.

Now shipping, the Stantron Presentation Rack is a good looking and durable mobile rack ideal for presentation needs in classrooms, conference rooms and board rooms. Available in two models, the overall design incorporates the product strengths and benefits associated with Stantron products along with new features that reflect direct input from customers. Both models are fully customizable to fit the requirements of integrators and end users, and simplify equipment re-configuration and routine system care through front- and rear-door access.

“The Stantron Presentation Rack is dedicated for the professional audio/visual market, delivering a compact and mobile system that retains the features of the industry standard Stantron rack,” said Daniel Eder, President of APWMayville. “The Presentation Rack follows the same design philosophies of other Stantron racks, improving flexibility and internal access for systems integrators. Post-installation, ease of maintenance and component protection both remain key benefits for end users.”

The Stantron Presentation Rack contains the following features:
• Vertical lacing bars for efficient cable management
• 24.75” rail-to-rail depth of shelf space for rack components
• 360 degree swivel casters for maximum mobility
• Perforated front/rear panels to ensure proper ventilation and prevent heat buildup
• Plexiglas front door for clear line of sight to all rack components
• Laminated solid graphite top featuring a 22.5” writing surface with cable port
• Numbered rack rails and multiple cable access holes on innovative rack base
• Power, lighting and cooling accessories installed to customer specifications

APWMayville will also display its Stantron E-Rack for the broadcast television and radio industries. The modular approach of the Stantron E-Rack allows users to configure their own rack systems. “The Stantron Rack has evolved to become the most user-friendly rack solution on the market, with a customizable design that sets it apart from other broadcast racks that are available only as strict catalog standards,” said Eder. “There is no better solution on the market today for integrators and broadcasters who are building high-density racks and need flexible cable management, power distribution, and cooling options.”

The Stantron E-Rack is a sturdy, low-profile rack with a host of user-friendly and time-saving features for systems integrators and broadcast engineers. Removable, quick release side panels and cable chase panels provide easy access for cable management, greatly reducing installation time for large-scale installations. The straight cable runs in the E-Rack’s open frame design eliminate kinks, bends and protrusions, and multiple lacing points located every six inches along the rack means heavy bundles can be supported. Heavy duty shelving, filler panels, and temperature control are some of the other standard and customizable features.
