If you own a wall-mounted TV, you probably need a SAVI TV Wall Mount Cover.
Nearly every home, hotel room, bar and waiting room in the US has a TV. Ever since the first TV was sold, most people have tried to make the TV part of the décor. Before there were flat screen TV’s, the solution was simple. We used TV cabinets and wall units to conceal the array of cables and equipment. But today, we have big flat screen TVs, and most are wall mounted. The problem of hiding exposed wires, mounts and rear mounted accessories like cable boxes can be difficult and expensive. Most people do not want to install a $400+ wall cabinet or spend thousands on expensive, custom built-in solutions.
Ideal for Home and Businesses
We have all seen or experienced this problem first hand. In fact, the idea for the low-cost, smart solution that we developed came from Greg Biddlecome, a founding member of Smart AV Solutions. Greg would often witness couples arguing over this issue. As a co-owner of Vision Media, he would install flat screen TV’s in homes and businesses in the Charlotte, North Carolina area of the United States, and the number one complaint that he would hear is; “How can we hide the mount and wires? I don’t want to see all that stuff behind the TV.” We have also seen dust buildup on the flat screen TV vents and rear mounted equipment impact their performance and lifespan.
Dust is Gross
Over the last year, we have gained valuable information from discovery sessions with home owners, hotel operators and national AV equipment distributors. Based on these insights, we applied our product design, development, and material sourcing experience with our AV industry knowledge, to develop a cost effective, easy to install, professional looking solution; the patent pending SAVI TV Wall Mount Cover. The SAVI Pro-Series Cover simply slips behind the TV to conceal and protect flat-screen TV mounts, cables and Audio Video (AV) equipment from dust while providing a professional built-in look. The SAVI Cover is designed with a unique "X-brace" that provides a gentle press-fit between the TV and the wall that will adjustable to fit most wall mounted installations. The special black stretch fabric cover is washable, breathable and allows the IR remote control signals to pass-through to rear mounted cable or digital boxes, like Apple TV, Amazon Fire Stick or Roku.
Easy Installation with no tools!
Now you see it. Now you don't.
The SAVI Pro-Series Cover comes in two sizes, Big and Bigger, and will work with most flat screen TVs from 50” to 85”. With a starting retail price (MSRP) under $60, it’s easy on the pocket book. The SAVI Covers are proudly made and assembled in North Carolina from local and foreign components. Your support of this campaign will enable us to make the upfront investment in the injection molding, tooling and staffing required for full production of the SAVI Pro-Series TV Wall Mount Cover. Thank you for your support.
Risks and challenges
Developing any new product is a challenge. Although the SAVI TV Wall Mount Cover is not a high-tech electronic or mechanical device, the design and testing was a challenge because some of the key components like the X-brace and flex hinges, could not be sourced and had to be designed and produced from scratch. We used 3D printing to build and test these components, and to perfect the design. Now we are ready for production and that requires a significant investment in tooling for injection molding and manufacturing of these key components.
Since we have deployed and tested dozens of pre-production versions of the TV Wall Mount Covers, we are confident in our design, but challenges with the tooling could cause delays in our delivery schedule. If tooling and production delays occur, we are prepared to provide Backers who request their units to be expedited, with hand-built, pre-production units. Every SAVI pre-production cover will come with a full one-year warranty.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
