Paramount Monitor Rack
Winner - Gold

Specifically designed for the trading desk environment where downtime costs big money, Paramount is the quickest and easiest-to-use multiple monitor mounting system ever created. The frequent moves and changes in trading environments create numerous logistical problems, particularly when the number and size of monitors change. Most multi-monitor display systems require extra tools, additional parts, and considerable manhours to install and reconfigure, causing significant downtime which comes at a high cost. Paramount is the first multiple-monitor display to address these problems. To save valuable time and manpower, its ingenious design reduces installation time to less than 10 minutes; even the most drastic reconfiguration—from a two-monitor display to eight—takes less than five minutes. Key to Paramount’s effortless reconfiguration is its self-contained design. Adjustments from a one-row display to two require no additional tools or parts because of its integrated second-row crossbar.
