MIDDLE ATLANTIC HUB: FURNITURE SOLUTION FOR COLLABORATION — AV.technology
Middle Atlantic Products has announced the launch of Hub — a technology-ready, all-in-one furniture solution for collaboration spaces that is designed to maximise equipment storage and cable management. Created for easy integration, Hub is ideal for unified communications and collaboration environments including huddle spaces, active learning spaces, and videoconferencing applications.
“Hub is a direct response to overwhelming interest from our A/V contractor partners for a flexible, comprehensive solution to create collaborative spaces with great ease,” said Tim Troast, director of product management for Middle Atlantic. “Hub offers the complete foundation to optimise performance from the technology and people who use these collaborative spaces. End users get a smart, elegant solution that seamlessly blends into any active environment. Integrators get a comprehensive solution that is easy to buy and simple to install, creating a new revenue opportunity beyond electronics, labor, and services.”
Each Hub is comprised of a tabletop featuring a Wiremold InteGreat table box providing power and data for easy BYOD integration. These are supported by Middle Atlantic’s TechPed technology pedestal, featuring integrated Lever Lock plates for small device mounting and two Wiremold HDMI cable retractors to facilitate connectivity for anyone at the table. Shipping fully assembled for easy integration, the TechPed also includes 4RU of space with room for additional cable retractors and power distribution with a four-outlet power strip. In addition, Hub includes a wall-mount bracket for flat-panel displays with an additional four-outlet power strip that mounts to the table bracket for connections close to the display. An optional tower, available in black or white, can be used to mount displays directly to the table in a freestanding configuration.
