Abstract

A technique is described whereby a tilt and swivel device is provided so as to mount a cathode ray tube (CRT) housing, as used in personal computer workstations. The device is unique in that it provides almost 360o rotating capability of the CRT housing, so as to provide maximum viewing to an operator. The design incorporates a center cable routing concept so as to keep the view of the cable assembly to a minimum while providing the CRT movement flexibility needed. CRT housing 10, shown in a side view in Fig. 1, is secured to tilt/swivel mounting assembly 11. Tilt/swivel mounting assembly 11 consists of three basic units, as shown in Fig. 2: Platform 12, rotating base 13 and tilt unit 14.
