“PIANO” – an interactive conference table that is truly “Plug and Play”

"PIANO" – an interactive conference table that is truly "Plug and Play"

(PRWEB) October 6, 2004

Meeting growing demand by military, government, educational and business customers for a multi-use conference table with integrated computer capability, SMARTdesks has developed a fresh, new design incorporating the company’s patent-pending flipIT™ mechanism that enables users to rotate an LCD flat panel monitor from under the table top into an ergonomic semi-recessed position while providing a clear top surface when computers are not in use.

The table’s wedge shape and the low profile of the semi-recessed LCD displays insure that everyone seated maintains an unobstructed line-of-sight to each other and to screened presentations. Its proportions allow it to fit in most existing conference rooms. Giving the product line its name, "PIANO" provides a slightly elevated center surface that can be raised like the top of a baby grand to provide easy access to all the requisite cables and power needs of the connected conference center. When the table is in use, this area serves as a platform for projector, document camera and other equipment.

To fine-tune the table system, SMARTdesks offers enhanced LCD displays for the flipIT™ with light-sensors that adjust screen brightness to ambient light conditions and an energy-saving automatic control that shuts down the monitor when it is closed. A low-profile roll-out console with unique side-to-side rack-mounting houses the CPU cases leaving plenty of leg room under the table and providing equipment security. Individual access to data storage is available at USB ports on each keyboard.

SMARTdesks was founded eight years ago in the Baltimore area as an internet-based design, manufacturing and marketing resource for a broad range of computer training furniture, equipment and accessories. Their extensive client list includes educational, corporate, military, medical and government entities around the world. Visit their web site at or contact them by phone at 800-770-7042
