    A line-of-sight collaborative conference table with 10 multi-use flipIT workstations

    A Piano10 conference table sets a forward-thinking tone, orchestrating people and technology in perfect harmony.

Screens are presented below the horizon for unubstructed sight lines to people, video or data screens and cameras used in teleconferencing. They rotate under the table instantly to eliminate visual clutter and extend the usefulness of the work space.This powerful space for collaboration is the product of the SMARTdesks Design Department working closely with the IT Director at Nutmeg State Financial Credit Union, coordinating with the SMARTdesks engineering and product design team. The Piano Collaborative Conference Table can be designed a number of ways to accommodate the space, the technology, the budget-and always-the corporate image.
  • Piano5 collaborative teleconference table
    Piano5+1 showing flipIT Laptop Safe® and technology access

    Perfect for one-camera teleconferencing, everyone is in the camera's angle of view. The table on the left shows the working position of the "Piano Lid" which lets cords pass from the technology chamber to the top. When such items as conference phones or cameras are not required, they can easily be stowed in the chamber. The same table on the right shows the lid raised for access. The flipIT FIL-18 Laptop Safes are shown deployed for use. This configuration is Piano5+1, having an 6th station on the wide end of the table, which is optional. flipIT monitor mounts for LCDs or VESA compatible All-In-Ones may also be specified. Piano5 has five positions, which is the customary design. This is the thermofoil finish treatment. Laminate with wood edge moulding is also available at a higher price.

    Piano14 presents fourteen flipIT multi-use workstations to present data reference as needed, but rotate out of the way when all should view the presentation on the main screen.

The patented flipIT® monitor mounts enable users to rotate LCD flat panel monitors from under the table top to the ideal ergonomic position, yet have the use of a clear top surface when computers are not needed. flipIT Laptop Safe® may also be installed for easy multi-use storage or laptops—each a charging cabinet at the point of use! The PIANO lid is raised to full-stick with pneumatic assist for ease of access to wire management and equipment in the center well. When the table is in use, the wire access lid serves as the ideal platform for projector, conference phone, video or document camera and other equipment. Extremely laptop friendly, too! Push-mount wire clip system allows fast, neat installation. Bayonet snaps lock into chassis holes and can be released and reused. Perforated chassis provides complete, natural ventilation for installed components. Multi-level racks are hinged for easy access. The wedge shape and the low profile of the semi-recessed LCD displays insure that everyone seated maintains an unobstructed line-of-sight to each other and to screened presentations. Its proportions allow it to fit most existing conference rooms. The diamond shape is two wedges, back to back, making a Piano Duet; the Piano Solo is a single wedge. The sides are non-confrontational and the ends are natural presenter positions. Both shapes work well with cameras for telepresence applications. The flipIT® stations present screens at a low profile so cameras can see faces and people can see screens. This Piano Sonata 18 Conference Table is installed at eMoney Advisor near Philadelphia. It is used for executive level training, think tanks, and teleconferencing. The Piano lids are raised for dramatic effect. The monitors and keyboards are connected to laptops, stored in the center well. The lids provide easy IT access.
