Select the best monitor arrangement for your computer training applications:

Computers - LCD and Laptops - may be incorporated into our Multimedia Computer Podiums in a variety of ways.

  • Semi-Recessed CRT : MSR Computer Podium
  • Semi-Recessed LCD: MFP Computer Podium
  • flipIT® Semi-Recessed LCD: MFI Computer Podium
  • LCD monitor Arm: MDT Computer Podium
  • Desktop CRT and LCD: MDT Computer Podium
  • Laptop: MLT & flipIT Laptop Safe Computer Podium

    Ideally, to support most instruction and presentation styles, monitor should be:
  • comfortable for user when stationary
  • visible to speaker while moving
  • Recessed to avoid obstruction
  • able to allow room for texts, notes
  • accessible for instructor input
  • protected from unauthorized access

    Positioning the lectern monitor can now be based upon your computer equipment and specific instructional requirements of your educational facility.

    Multimedia Lecterns, Podiums and Instruction Stations are all designed to coordinate with all other SMARTdesks product lines.

    MFI detail Semi-Recessed MPLEX podiums (MSR, MFP, MFI) position the monitor just below the presenter's line-of-sight to students, protect equipment, conceal cables and offer ideal user ergonomics for teaching activities.
    MLT detail Desktop MPLEX lecterns and podiums hold all monitors (MDT) and laptop (MLT) computers. The screen is very visible to the instructor which may be rotated toward the audience, but the configuration does not provide an unobstructed sight-line, equipment security or cable protection
    MDT with LCD arms Desktop MPLEX lecterns and podiums with LCD monitor arm support a highly adjustable view of the screen - for presenter AND students - but may obstruct line-of-sight and provide little protection for the monitor and cables.
