Executive Overview

Bell’O showed off several new AV furniture products at CES this year. I've found them to make a nice range of inexpensive to premium furniture to cover a wide range of tastes. The FP-4858 Triple Play A/V Flat-Panel Stand is a beautiful corner-oriented AV stand that provides three options for use with a flat panel TV. You can display the TV on the top shelf of the stand itself; on the swivel pole mounting system above the stand; or on the wall itself with the stand below it as a shelf table. It accommodates most flat-panel TVs up to 52" or 125 lbs. and holds up to four or more audio/video components plus a center channel speaker.

The FP-4858 has black tempered safety glass shelves and a high-gloss black, scratch-resistant, powder coated metal frame. An integrated CMS Cable Management System to hide and organize wire and interconnect cables. The stand has overall dimensions of 50.5" W x 65.5" H x 22.5" D. Retail pricing is $399.99.

Bell’O also showed off some wall mounts designed for small, medium or large HDTVs. They included fixed wall mounts as well as those that tilt and/or articulate for additional viewing angle options. The new mounts hold HDTVs from 12" to 84" and most feature the Bell’O Cable Management System to manage your cables and/or plastic finishing caps to maintain a clean appearance. The new heavy-duty cantilever mounts feature a one-screw TV tilt adjustment allowing even the heaviest of TVs to be tilted up or down with the turn of just one screw. All of teh metal in these mounts come with a high gloss, scratch-resistant, piano black finish. Prices range in retail price from $29.99 to $649.99.

The new 7848 Large Articulating Arm tilts and holds TVs up to 70" while the 7610 Fixed Low Profile Wall Mount holds TVs 37" to 52". The baby of the group, the 7470 Articulating Wall Mount, holds TVs 12"-32".

accessBell’O also uniquely displayed their new CMS-169 Cable Management System which securely hides six to nine HDTV and A/V accessory wires. The system is fully height adjustable and extends from 18’’ to 59’’ without cutting or tools. It's easily mountable with 3M mounting tape, wood screws or sheet rock/masonry wall anchors (all of which are included). The standard off-white painted finish can easily be painted to match any home décor and the unit retails for $29.99.
