We have already seen a so called Christie ‘News Desk’ at this year’s #NABShow – designed and produced by Christie Digital themselves as a demonstration of what can be done with MicroTiles and at the time we made mention “It’s not just desks that can be made more interactive of course – think speaker podiums, lecterns etc. AND what a great place to run your Twitterfall” but just see what we have here…
A lectern (from the Latin lectus, past participle of legere, “to read”) is a reading desk with a slanted top, usually placed on a stand or affixed to a some other form of support, on which documents or books are placed as support for reading aloud, as in a scripture reading, lecture, or sermon.
A conversation about a specific topic conducted by a group of experts, usually either in the presence of an audience or in a broadcast (or both)
Look carefully at the all three pictures, taken last week in Islington, London at an exhibition for event organisers (with no people in the shots the perspective can be a little disorienting).
Bottom line what we have is some tremendous ‘furniture’ innovation from Aztec Event Services Ltd who only a month or so ago took delivery of 70+ MicroTiles.
The lectern on the right hand side of the photographs comprises two x MicroTiles one on top of each other. The panel discussion desk (note the microphones on both pieces of furniture) is made up of 4 x MicroTiles next to each other.
