KI teamed with instructors from the prestigious Wharton School of Business to develop the state-of-the-art Wharton lectern that features complete control and speaker comfort.The top of the lectern has a frosted plexi-glass top that slides open to reveal a storage tray that holds a laptop or an optional touchscreen monitor that controls presentation technology and the complete room environment (lighting, sound, temp). The extended wings provide ample room for a speaker’s notes or personal laptop.Speaker comfort is supported with a gooseneck microphone and halogen note light that the speaker can adjust to his/her preference. Swing-out drink caddies on both the left and right side ensure a speaker has easy access to a beverage. When not in use, the caddies self-store out of the way. An optional keyboard tray with mouse pad slides into the lectern when not in use.The Wharton lectern adjusts electronically from 37-1/2″ to 47″, which accommodates the 5th percentile female to the 95th percentile male.Access to power and data is easy. A flip-open technology well has ample room to neatly store cords and transformers, so a speaker can simply plug in a laptop. Two additional power outlets accommodate additional presentation equipment.
