THE INSIDE STORY: HIDEit Apple TV 4K Mount
Posted on Wednesday, August 21, 2019

Is there a difference when it comes to mounting an Apple TV 4 versus Apple TV 4K? Definitely! Unlike competitors, we customize our mounts for the newest devices.

WHY DID WE MAKEit?

When Apple released the Apple TV 4K model in 2017, we immediately wondered what changes might need to be made to our existing Apple TV 4 (4th generation) Mount. The ATV4 and 4K devices are so similar they’re practically identical from the front. However, taking a closer look, we noticed a very important difference on the back of the ATV4K device. Vents!

A product comparison done by 9TO5 states, "the fourth-generation Apple TV maxed out at 1080p video at 60 frames per second, the new 4K model supports a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160." Faster processing means more heat and Apple knew it was necessary to make specific changes to accommodate cooling.

Well, HIDEit knows the importance of not blocking vents and ports as well!

One of the key features with all of our mounts is to ensure our signature sleek designs allow for maximum airflow. Shockingly, no one else in the market has redesigned their ATV4 Mount to properly accommodate this all important aspect. We’ve had a solution for every Apple TV generation and were eager to once again lead the industry with another innovative mount!

HOW DID WE MAKEit?

We made a slight adjustment to our HIDEit ATV4 steel mount design, adding cutouts that align with the ATV4K’s vents, giving the device appropriate breathing room.

We’re also firm believers that metal mounts are better - providing strength and stability for each device, as well as peace of mind for our customers knowing their device is secure. Even though our original mount for the Apple TV 1st generation was made of acrylic, ten years of research and development has put us at the forefront by using 16-gauge, cold-rolled steel plus a powder coat finish to prevent rusting on all of our wall mounts.

"We received a lot of praise from AV integrators during the CEDIA 2017 conference for having a metal mount versus a plastic mount. Their biggest concerns were heat issues and adhesives failing.”~ Chuck Shirley, Founder and COO
