Fully Retractable/Compact

Efficient use of space in the proprietary design of the furniture provides a small footprint. The drawers on each side of the system and the keyboard tray are fully retractable to save space when certain features are not in use.

Face-Forward Presentations

By nature, podiums promote face-forward presentations. However, the convenient placement of a built-in confidence monitor allows instructors to also see presented images without turning around to look at the big screen.

Ergonomic Layout

The Nomad LT classroom AV solution was designed to place highly interactive devices, such as the control panel, in convenient locations so instructors can use them comfortably without bending or reaching.
