Why Choose Multimedia Podiums or Lecterns?
If you do a lot of public speaking, then you're probably familiar with the concept of multimedia podiums and how they function. Podiums equipped for multimedia use are common sights in conference and meeting centers, as well as in classrooms in universities and other institutions of higher learning.
The benefit of choosing SMARTdesks products is that we offer durable multimedia podiums and lecterns that already have space built in for all the tech you need to run your lecture or presentation. With a traditional lectern, it is often difficult to find a place to set up a laptop computer, for example. Our flipIT multimedia podiums come with a mounting system that allows you to see your screen but doesn’t impede your view of the audience. Task lights, ventilation fans and other options allow you to customize your podium for the needs of your classroom or lecture hall.
If you want to coordinate a slideshow along with the use of speakers / a sound system, microphones and any other audiovisual components, a multimedia podium can be incredibly valuable in streamlining the various forms of technology you’re using.
Multimedia podiums can boost your technological setup in a dramatic way, helping to decrease wasted time, stress and confusion. A durable podium that has stable mounting areas for your multimedia equipment can aid you with a wide variety of applications.
To make our products even easier to use, our multimedia podiums come in different heights and depths. We also offer fixed as well as mobile multimedia podiums, so you can take the presentation wherever it needs to go.
