Visual presentations are more important for business than ever in today’s multimedia world, and choosing the right TV cart for your conference room has a big impact on delivering information clearly and effectively to an audience. Whether it’s employees learning the latest procedures and training, potential business partners getting a rundown of what your firm offers them, or a client looking to make a major purchase, clear delivery of video material has a crucial impact on results.
Depending on the size of your conference room, you may want either a TV cart that supports a medium-sized or large television. For smaller conference rooms, a medium TV (50” to 65” at maximum) works well, providing a screen that is large enough for visibility to all the people in the room, but saving somewhat on space.
Heavy-duty TV carts capable of holding 100” screens make sense for spacious conference rooms, where there is plenty of room to set up a larger device and stand combined with the need for a large image that everyone can see clearly, even those near the back wall. Small stands such as monitor stands seldom work for a full-scale presentation.
Conference room TVs now serve another vital purpose in addition to presentations – they provide an interface for teleconferencing. Enabling real-time face-to-face meeting between people in different cities, nations, or even sides of the globe immensely speeds up the process of doing business. Those equipped with shelves can support the electronics, such as cameras and microphones, needed to broadcast a video stream of the people in your conference room back to those you are communicating with for a proper teleconference.
Today’s TV carts are built with an assortment of other premium features you should consider when choosing the right one for your conference room. Rolling TV carts have a lot to offer, moving on casters to allow quick re-positioning, pushing them out of the way when they’re not in use, and so forth. However, the fact that they’re on wheels means that they can be jostled out of alignment easily, too. Braked casters, found on good quality carts, enable stopping the stand firmly in place with a foot lever that applies a brake to the wheel. When you need to move the stand again, it’s a snap to release the lever.
A dual TV stand, capable of holding a pair of television screens simultaneously side by side, adds even more display capability. If your conferences require cross-referencing between two different videos, or you’re planning a teleconference between more than two locations, this setup spares you a lot of headaches – as well as the additional cost and space requirements of having two separate rolling TV carts. Look for carts that use aluminum and/or steel in their manufacture to ensure they can support the full weight of two screens simultaneously.
Upgrading your conference room to bring its display electronics into the 21st century has never been easier.
