What type of monitor placement
works best for you?

Computers - LCD and Laptops - may be incorporated into our Multimedia Computer Podiums in a variety of ways.
flipIT Podium with semi-recessed open position

flipIT® podiums (VTC, MFI) make your podium a convertible! When you need a monitor screen, flipIT open. When you don't, flipIT closed. Semi-recessed position when open gives unobstructed sight lines to students.

MFI detail Semi-Recessed podiums (VTC, MFI, MFP) position the monitor just below the presenter's line-of-sight. This is a solution for iMac® and monitors with dedicated stands that are not VESA mount compatible.
MLT detail

Solid Desktop podiums hold all monitors (MDT) and laptop (MLT) computers. Power and data ports may be specified for connectivity.

Downview Podium glass top detail Downview Glass Top Podiums (MSS) position the monitor under a glass top. This no-clutter configuration is a popular choice, but keep in mind that overhead ceiling lights can obscure the screen with reflections.
