LAS VEGAS, Nev., April 3, 2013 — Video Mount Products, a leading provider of mounting solutions for the A/V, communications, and security industries, is proud to announce that they have teamed with Autodesk to provide Building Information Modeling (BIM) content for many of its most popular products. VMP will debut its BIM program to the security market at 2013 ISC West, held in Las Vegas, Nev. from April 10-12 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, booth 1042.
“BIM technology and acceptance has grown significantly over the past several years,” says! Keith Fulmer, President of Video Mount Products. “The addition of BIM content to the AutoDesk Seek repository is not just another tool in the toolbox, but a viable solution supporting the architectural, engineering, integrators, and contracting communities in the security market.”
In addition to being hosted on AutoDesk Seek, the content will also be available for download through InfoComm iQ as well as from the videomount.com website. More than 30 BIM models are currently available for VMP products, including models for flat panel mounts, equipment racks, projector mounts, and non-penetrating roof mounts.
Traditional building design has been largely reliant upon two-dimensional drawings (i.e. plans, elevations, etc.) whereas Building Information Modeling extends this beyond 3D to a virtual “5D” platform by enhancing the three primary spatial dimensions (width, height, and depth) with time as the fourth dimensio! n and cost as the fifth, making the use of BIM a crucial factor for design, implementation, and sustainability with equal importance placed upon manpower and profitability.
“BIM allows all the necessary elements to be integrated into a project during its initial planning stages and flow through to proposed future development, before a hammer or nail are used in the project,” Fulmer continued. “By utilizing VMP's BIM models, all the knowledge necessary to make for a successful end-result via the sharing of electronic data between all parties is at the users’ fingertips. This results in more efficient and cost-effective planning and preemptive problem solving in real-time '5D'.”
