What to Consider When Purchasing a Semi-Custom Podium

Matching the Podium to Your Environment

Wood finishes are one of the most common and versatile finishes as they tend to match most rooms and are considered a standard for conference halls and auditoriums. AVinED uses plastic and thermally fused melamine laminate to create a variety of wood finishes, in addition to more contemporary colors, such as grays and blacks. With such a diverse selection, it is a guarantee that we can create a podium that looks great and delivers regardless of your location.

Choosing a Podium Size

AvinED offers a wide variety of podium sizes designed to meet a similarly wide variety of needs. Those searching for multimedia podiums will want to select a wider option to accommodate laptops, audio sources, presentation materials, or other AV equipment. We manufacture speaker podiums ranging in size from 25” to 48” wide.

Features To Look For in Multimedia Podiums

Multimedia podiums, sometimes referred to as smart lecterns, are designed for educators to excel in the classroom. In addition to allowing teachers and professors to lecture freely throughout the classroom, a good multimedia podium allows presentations to be supplemented with videos, sound clips, and more. AvinED’s multimedia podiums feature built-in tablet or iPad holders and are designed for easy integration of AV equipment, such as microphones, inputs, and speakers.

To start, speaker podiums and lecterns help speakers stay organized and reach audiences effectively. These products are the most common accessory for any kind of public speaking, and that is not an accident.
