Fountain Valley, CA (PRWEB) March 21, 2012
SecurityWorks, Inc., a designer and manufacturer of IT accessories that allow mobility, security and ergonomics, announced today the introduction of its multimedia cart series, Technology Workstand 2000. Its newest edition, Technology Workstand 2005, is the first and only AV cart that provides secure and ergonomic mounting for all makes and models of portable document cameras, and is now available to order for $429.
The educational member of the company’s Technology Workstand product family, Technology Workstand 2005, targets the needs of teachers in the classroom. By allowing secure mounting of any document camera, as well as a laptop computer on a height adjustable base with wheels, teachers are able to teach from the most optimal spaces in the classroom.
“Our teachers like the way document cameras fit on the Workstand,” Julie Anderson, IT Coordinator from Champaign District 4 in Illinois said. “Our staff could tell that the Workstand 2005 was designed with plenty of input from teachers. Everything from its maneuverability, to the easy-to-use locking mechanism for security, to the expanded physical workspace make the Workstand a must have in the classroom.”
Over a two-and-a-half-year period, SecurityWorks, Inc. worked closely with teachers and administrators in three school districts, (Garden Grove USD, Brea Olinda USD in Southern California and Cupertino Union School District in Northern California) to reinvent the AV cart. “Teachers and school administrators were frustrated with the old-style AV carts because they simply weren’t designed for today’s educational technology equipment,” Christopher Meyer, company president and CEO said. “SecurityWorks built the Workstand 2005 around the document camera and projector. Our designers wanted Technology Workstands to be modular, so one piece of equipment could be adapted to accommodate a wide range of educational technology equipment. Because of this, schools can add a projector mount to the Workstand 2005 that allows the projector to rotate 360° and swivel or tilt while being locked down. Future options include a mount for up to a 52” TV screen and short throw projector.”
The patented Technology Workstand 2005 is the ultimate AV cart that provides security and mobility. It is constructed with all cold rolled steel, and finished with a hammer tone powder coat. The Workstand provides automatic height adjustment of work surface, with equipment installed, from 28” to 40”. It is equipped with five 4” durable, heavy-duty, steel-fork casters, two that lock. In addition, the Workstand has a circular foot rest plate that measures 25” in diameter. It also comes with a six outlet surge protector with 20’ cord to the wall. The power system comes as standard equipment with each Workstand and is mounted neatly on the underside of the Center Shelf. The laptop or tablet is housed inside a shelf on a pull-out drawer that locks with a resettable combination padlock. A cargo net, capable of holding TEs is located on the underside of the laptop drawer.
The Workstand’s document camera mounting plate is designed to adapt to any make or model of document camera so the lens is centered on the work surface and the user interface faces the teacher within easy reach. The Workstand has a 23” diameter dedicated work surface, free of any equipment that would interfere with the use of the document camera.
SecurityWorks offers a 12-year warranty on the Workstand, and 3-year warranty on the cylinder. SecurityWorks, Inc. also offers has a variety of optional accessories including: custom security cable to lock Workstand, dust cover, fitted dry erase board, and secure speaker mounts.
