FAIRFIELD, N.J. -- Oct. 13, 2015 -- Middle Atlantic Products today announced the launch of Hub -- a technology-ready, all-in-one furniture solution for collaboration spaces that is designed to maximize equipment storage and cable management. Created for easy integration, Hub is ideal for unified communications and collaboration environments including huddle spaces, active learning spaces, and videoconferencing applications.
"Hub is a direct response to overwhelming interest from our A/V contractor partners for a flexible, comprehensive solution to create collaborative spaces with great ease," said Tim Troast, director of product management for Middle Atlantic. "Hub offers the complete foundation to optimize performance from the technology and people who use these collaborative spaces. End users get a smart, elegant solution that seamlessly blends into any active environment. Integrators get a comprehensive solution that is easy to buy and simple to install, creating a new revenue opportunity beyond electronics, labor, and services."
Each Hub is comprised of a tabletop featuring a Wiremold(R) InteGreat(TM) table box providing power and data for easy BYOD integration. These are supported by Middle Atlantic's TechPed(TM) technology pedestal, featuring integrated Lever Lock(TM) plates for small device mounting and two Wiremold HDMI(R) cable retractors to facilitate connectivity for anyone at the table. Shipping fully assembled for easy integration, the TechPed also includes 4RU of space with room for additional cable retractors and power distribution with a four-outlet power strip. In addition, Hub includes a wall-mount bracket for flat-panel displays with an additional four-outlet power strip that mounts to the table bracket for connections close to the display. An optional tower, available in black or white, can be used to mount displays directly to the table in a freestanding configuration.
GREENGUARD Gold-certified for use in multiple environments including public, educational, and institutional spaces, Hub is available in more than 50 color options with a choice of HPL or thermolaminate table finishes. Customers may choose from a range of table configurations to support design flexibility and a variety of applications. Hub's tabletop is available in two design options: Angle, a trapezoidal shape ideal for videoconferencing, and Bullet, rounded at one end to enable face-to-face collaboration. Table lengths include 6, 7, and 8 feet, accommodating from five to seven people. Each Hub includes an integrated cable trough for tidy cable management and simplified servicing down the line.
Hub is simple to order, with a single part number for the all-in-one system and color designation. More information about Hub and other Middle Atlantic products is available at www.middleatlantic.com.
