Comparing Monitor Configurations


 

iQuote
Selecting the Best Monitor Configuration for your Training Application:
Computers displays can be incorporated into the classroom landscape in several ways. Decisions concerning monitor configuration should be based upon curricullum requirements and the benefits and drawbacks of each configuration in meeting them.
SMARTdesks manufactures workstations in each configuration - semi-recessed, sub-surface and desktop monitor - because in some training circumstances the computer screen is the focus of instruction, in some cases it is used, but not as part of the instruction, and sometimes the computer is the instruction.

  • Integral wire management enable desk-to-desk connection, control clutter, protect cables
  • Many Options - Power/Data Management, Adjustability & Mobility, Task Lighting
  • Standard and Custom Modifications - for security, accessibility and utility
  • Over 1250 Finish Combinations - selected for durability, low reflectance and compatibility
  • All have the same high quality general construction specifications including high-pressure laminate tops, 3mm PVC protective edge treatment, steel, thru-bolted assembly hardware for durability, etc.

And, all three styles offer these benefits:

  • Materials selected for durability and ease of maintenance in a classroom environment
  • Improved ergonomics to accommodate the greatest range of body type and size
  • Equipment location provides an increased level of security and protection
  • Reduction and elimination of cable clutter without limiting access for maintenance
  • Maximized workspace - designed into each monitor configuration
Comparing the differences

FI Series - flipIT® Multi-Use Semi-Recessed LCD Monitor Configuration:

  • The flipIT system positions the monitor ideally in the horizontal focal plane to integrate the computer screen into classroom activity without obstructing the sight-line between the student and the instructor and presentation
  • Provides protection for equipment and cables against damage or theft
  • The flipIT® system rotates the LCD monitor securely away for use with books
  • Offers the best ergonomics for courses where the computer is the focus
  • Offers better control over student computer use

  • Custom Assembly System™ provides a non-adjustable position for any specified monitor size at the proper height, depth and angle for computer based training.
  • Maintains a totally unobstructed line-of-sight between student and instructor
  • Offers the most privacy for testing

SR Series - Semi-Recessed Monitor Configuration:

  • Positions the monitor ideally in the horizontal focal plane to integrate the computer screen into classroom activity without obstructing the sight-line between the student and the instructor and presentation
  • Provides protection for equipment and cables against damage or theft
  • Custom Assembly System™ permanently positions any size monitor at the proper height, depth and angle for computer based training
  • Offers the best ergonomics for courses where the computer is the focus
