Middle Atlantic Products, a brand of Legrand | AV, has announced the Forum Lectern, the latest solution in the company’s configurable AV furniture product line, the Forum Collaboration Suite, that’s available with customization options such as logo panels, worksufaces and colors. The electrically height-adjustable Forum Lectern is compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and is suited for higher education, training and presentation spaces.

“Middle Atlantic’s Forum suite of products provides the industry with furniture designed for the way people work, educate, and collaborate today and tomorrow,” says Alyssa Adnani, lead product manager, AV Furniture & Cable Management, Middle Atlantic. “The new Forum Lectern adds more breadth to the Forum suite and is built around our years of experience and expertise in lectern design and relationships with customers and end users. 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 Forum Lectern 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 lectern matches the aesthetics of existing Forum products so that it can be installed in the same spaces for a cohesive design.

It can be configured with a flat worksurface or Turret worksurface. 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. Meyer — a Legrand Group brand — for power, data, and connectivity with power systems in the U.S., Canada, Britain, France, and Switzerland, as well as with Schuko plugs and outlets. There is an optional matching 12RU, 16RU or 20RU side rack and 6RU under-worksurface mounted rack for extra rack-mount storage.

Finally, it is compatible with Chief monitor arms and features a customizable logo panel option for branding the lectern with the school or organization’s logo. The Forum Lectern can be specified now through local sales contacts, with shipping in time for the summer build season.
