Displace, an in-home entertainment startup in the TV sector, has announced new safety features for its 100% wireless Display TVs.
According to the company, the wireless TVs can be easily secured to any surface — with no mounting required — using Displace’s proprietary active-loop vacuum technology. The new safety features include the addition of advanced wall-sensing algorithms, four quick adhesives for stability, and a proprietary self-lowering landing gear system, which combine to make Displace the safest wall-mounted TV on the market.
“We’ve performed hundreds of hours of tests to ensure our wall-mounting technology is the safest on the market,” says Balaji Krishnan, founder and CEO, Displace.
“Our vision is for people to have multiple Displace TVs on the walls in their homes so the TVs deliver value beyond entertainment. Our TVs must be the easiest to secure on the wall and the safest and worry-free to achieve this. We’re very proud that Displace’s new safety features provide additional layers of protection without being invasive. While almost no one will ever need them except for unforeseen circumstances, Displace TVs offer owners peace of mind.”
Displace TVs Complement Minimalist Home Designs
The new company boasts that its wireless TVs solve many common problems typically associated with flat-screen televisions, which include the fact they are tedious to mount, cluttered with wires, and utilize antiquated remote controls. Displace TVs are light—around 20 pounds—transportable, and the product can be combined with multiple Displace TVs to form any size display. A proprietary hot-swappable battery system powers the 55-inch 4K TVs. The company points out its TVs are primarily controlled by natural hand gesture movements, in addition to touch and voice interfaces, making it easy to browse, play and control content using hand movements. The wireless televisions also utilize facial recognition and computer vision technology, enabling content to switch seamlessly between rooms when users move around their homes.
Addressing the safety and aesthetic values of the product, the startup company points out that it has created technologies to attach TVs easily to any surface and developed multiple safety technologies that make Displace the safest mountable TV screens on the market. The new features address three challenges:
- Keep the wireless TV on the wall for the longest time, even when the batteries aren’t swapped out and recharged. Displace’s newly added internal battery system, redesigned vacuum suction system and updated active-loop algorithms ensure the Displace TV will stay on the wall for three to 10 months or more, even without any external batteries plugged in.
- Stop any damage to the wall (without drilling or nailing) using the company’s proprietary active-loop vacuum technology.
- Prevent any damage to the Displace TV even when unforeseen things happen, such as wall cracks, paint peeling, etc., or when Displace’s active-loop vacuum suction system senses it can no longer keep the TV attached to the wall due to battery drainage. Displace’s new proprietary self-lowering landing gear system ensures the Displace TV automatically lowers itself gently to the ground to prevent any damage to the TV.
Summarizing Displace Safety Features
Sensors within the Displace TV constantly measure the battery level and pressure in the vacuum suction system; the sensors analyze the wall’s surface and check leakage on the vacuum pumps. If the vacuum pumps are in danger of not maintaining a seal or the wall’s integrity falters, the TV automatically deploys four quick adhesives for stability and initiates a self-lowering landing gear system. The adhesives work as anchor points, as the TV begins to lower itself gently on a zipline (from as high as 10 feet) and deploys a reusable foam at the bottom to protect the TV screen. The Displace TVs also activate a built-in alarm and flashing lights while lowering itself to keep pets safe and away from the area.
In addition, the sensors also constantly monitor battery life, even when the TV is off, and automatically shut down different internal systems depending on usage to preserve battery power. Unused or barely used Displace TVs can last anywhere from three to 10 months, depending upon the battery power (minimum of three months and up to 10 or more months).
