Salamander’s X/SNY245 Credenza Holds New Sony Short-Throw Projector

Salamander Designs’ new X/SNY245 credenza accommodates many short-throw projectors for the home, including Sony’s VPL-VZ1000ES UltraHD 4K HDR projector.


Short-throw projectors are a convenient way to add a big-screen picture to a home without hanging a TV on the wall. Salamander Designs has announced its X/SNY245 Credenza, facilitating the ease of placing projectors in a home, including Sony's new VPL-VZ1000ES short-throw projector.

Sony's UltraHD 4K HDR projector produces 2,500 lumens, and is capable of delivering a 120-inch image from less than 8.5-inches away from a screen.

The Salamander credenza features an extruded aluminum frame for strength and rigidity. Salamander says the piece of furniture offers internal storage that can be used in a variety of ways by homeowners. 

“At Salamander, after over 20 years of creating innovative A/V furniture, we are very adept at providing collaborative solutions,” says Sal Carrabba, president and founder of Salamander Designs. “This Ultra Short Throw VPL-VZ1000ES projector and cabinet is just one exampl of the forward-thinking solutions we can offer.”

Some of the credenza's other options include a choice of bolt-on options to augment the ergonomics of the product, as well as electronics-friendly options such as active cooling and built-on louvers to support proper airflow and the cooling of stored electronic components. 

Integrators can locate an A/V system's companion speakers within the credenza, and pinch-out rear panels allow installers to easily access cabling connections and stored components.
