Projector Mounting Photos

This page contains several examples of mounting the ICATS system including a projector.  Several different mounting approaches are covered and address various room conditions such as tight spaces, low or high ceilings, ceiling or wall mounted, and side or end mount.  Take a look at these approaches and see what might work best for your ICATS mounting!

Chain Mount

This mount works great for "drop ceilings" and could be adapted to other situations as well. The projector is initially mounted to a particle board plate.  The plate has 4 small eye bolts in each corner, with a short chain strung across the front two eye bolts. The "3-point connection" to the ceiling is stable.  An "S hook" at the end of the front ceiling chain can be used to lengthen/shorten the front ceiling chain for tilt, or moved along the short chain at the front of edge of the plate to allow left/right adjustment.  The length of the 3 ceiling chains can be adjusted for low or high ceilings and cables can be run through the ceiling for a nice, clean look.

This "Shelf Mount" works best as an End-Mount, with your wall at the desired ~5'6" - 7' distance.  This particular room has a vaulted ceiling which would have made a ceiling installation challenging.  A 12"x24" shelf, two brackets, a projector mount (like on the Shop page) and some screws & drywall anchors are all that is needed. The projector mount is attached close to the front edge of the board to allow for projector tilt and rear clearance for the power and HDMI cords.  The projector mount provides simple vertical and horizontal tilt adjustment to achieve correct table illumination.  A 3 outlet extension cord provides power for the ICATS and projector, with the ICATS and extra cords nicely tucked on top of the shelf (hidden) for a nice, clean look.
