It continues Middle Atlantic’s commitment to easy and reliable integration of the critical AV systems needed today while blending aesthetics for public spaces.”

The Middle Atlantic Product’s Forum Lectern is ADA-compliant and height-adjustable to meet the needs of any user in any learning or meeting space. It is available in 42-inch, 60-inch, and 72-inch widths and in four colorways: Wilsonart® Designer White, white powder coat, silver gray acoustic felt; Wilsonart® Asian Night, graphite powder coat, charcoal gray acoustic felt; Wilsonart® Biltmore Cherry, magnesium powder coat, charcoal gray acoustic felt; and Wilsonart® Kensington Maple, magnesium powder coat, silver gray acoustic felt.

The Turret worksurface includes a Presenter’s Panel to mount touch screens, clock timers, microphones, and more. The offering also includes worksurface power options from A. & H.
