An alternate top will be presented with the flipIT® Laptop Power Safe.

Bays are served with vented, locking metal doors on the reverse side and locking sliding doors on the front. Top deck has comfort contoured handles and the system rolls on 5-inch casters.

Viewpoint Mobile HD Teleconferencing Studio. Roll Viewpoint into any location. Set the background and context for your teleconference call. If you don't have the space to dedicate to teleconferencing, Viewpoint can be kept in a storage space, ready to be deployed. A self-contained, mobile video studio, Viewpoint transports to any location on 5-inch casters. The table top is shaped to position people perfectly for the camera. A single user is seated in the center position. Two users are seated side-by side with the center position vacant. Up to three can take a meeting using Viewpoint’s composition frame table top. The camera is mounted at eye level. The codec is mounted to a bracket on the adjustable height column. Monitor and camera mount to central post, sized for your equipment choice. Balanced video lighting is attached. Use sitting or standing: table is height adjustable from 27 to 38 inches, in one-inch increments. VIEWPOINT Composes the Camera Frame for Great Presentations! The contours of Viewpoint's deck position the on-camera talent for a perfectly composed frame. Camera mount system enables optical articulation for greater creative composition. Camera can be set at eye level with up to an 18 inch radius of adjustable articulation.

The Presence Studio Suite is served with power and data connectivity through a cable management floor system by Powerflor®. This raised access floor installs fast, costs less than conventional methods of providing power and data cables to specific locations, and allows relocation of outlets in hours—not days. UL approved power cables require no specialized trades for installation, and the system can be scheduled for installation a day before the furniture is to be set. If relocation is required, it can be performed in minutes, on the fly.

iDrawer™ Locking Storage Drawer for iPad®, Netbook, and mobile devices will be introduced. This can be added to the Presence Podium solid top to serve small devices used in communication. iDrawer™ applications include classroom, conference room, hotel room and office, wherever mobile devices are used.
