American Recorder Technologies Media Box Holders Hide AppleTV, Roku

Returning to CEDIA 2019 in Denver, American Recorder Technologies is coming in hot with new Media Box Holders (MBH) constructed with clear PVC metal and helping to hide Apple TV, Roku, DirectTV and other media players out of sight.


Sometimes, the little things can make a big difference. A/V accessories manufacturer American Recorder Technologies will be showing its latest products in Denver at CEDIA 2019, including its new Media Box Holder (MBH), developed to attach to the back panel of a TV to securely hold devices like Apple TV, Roku, DirectTV Genies and others out of sight.

American Recorder Technologies manufactures a diverse line of products that range from speaker stands and laser alignment tools to vinyl LP care products.

The company will be exhibiting at CEDIA 2019 in booth #4247.

Media Box Holder Mounts Without Tools 

The company explains the Media Box Holder is made from “thick and clear” PVC material, and it ships flat.

American Recorder Technologies emphasizes that integrators will not need any sort of tool to install the Media Box Holder to the back of flat-panel TVs, and that all integrators need to do is unfold the Media Box Holder, peel its strong adhesive strips, which are rated to withstand up to 300 degrees of heat, and stick the product to the back of a TV.

Once the product is attached to the back of a TV,  the next step is to simply place the Apple TV, Roku or whatever device in the Media Box Holder.

The top of the Media Box Holder is open to facilitate the flow of fresh air to keep devices cool, and the clear material enables integrators to see the LED status of devices.

  • The SK-MB-S1 measures 5 inches x 5 inches x 1.75 inches, and its MSRP is $7.95. This product is compatible with Apple TVs, Roku products and other similar-sized devices.
