The Virtual Classroom is designed to assist education decision makers in choosing products to furnish their facilities. Facility managers can browse around the “classroom” on the Chief site and discover the latest in AV mount technology through an interactive tour of Chief products that are specially designed for the classroom.

Products within the room include Chief’s RPA™ Elite Projector Mount and Fusion™ Mobile Cart, Monitor Mount, and Swing Arm Wall Mount. The Virtual Classroom also includes links to CAD drawings, tech drawings, and installation manuals.

Another new tool on Chief Web site is MountBuilder™, a product configurator for building and specifying mounting solutions. The tool walks the user through a logical sequence of steps for building a mount configuration that visually appears on screen. Drop distance and weight capacity are automatically calculated as parts are added. A parts list is also generated, with the ability to edit parts and quantities.

Chief’s Easy Bid Spec form is also available for download within the Virtual Classroom and MountBuilder applications. This interactive PDF form simplified the bid process by providing an easy to use format for acquiring project bids from Chief.
