Store and transport digital equipment in our sturdy audio visual carts. When you're ready to begin speaking, you'll appreciate our user-friendly podiums. Hertz Furniture's selection of AV equipment is assembled to satisfy the requirements of modern-day customers.
What should I look for in an AV cart?
AV carts come in a large selection of materials and configurations. The right choice ultimately depends on what digital equipment you want to keep mobile and accessible. AV carts save the hassle of carrying heavy and unwieldy electronics from place to place. When large equipment is carried manually, there is a greater risk that it will get damaged from dropping or bumping against things. AV carts roll everything smoothly into place as it securely rests in tough cabinets or on shelves.
Because we know that every institution has a unique set of needs for audio-visual equipment, we have carts in a wide range of styles. Whether you just want a place for your laptop and notes, or you need a DVD player, document camera and projector, we have some great choices. Locking cabinets ensure that electronics are protected even when you are out of the room. With all presentation and slideshow equipment in one convenient place, special lectures and events can be set up virtually anywhere in very little time.
What is the most versatile AV cart?
Tuffy Carts from H Wilson are sturdy and versatile. They can support virtually any electronic equipment, making it easy to transport just about anywhere. They are available in a huge selection of styles, with multiple caster choices. Cabinet options are available as well. Tuffy carts are distinguished by a selection of great colors that make them easy to find and fun to use.
If you just want a place to put a television, we also have a number of excellent TV carts. Carts which are designed for flat-panel screens enable sturdy mounting so equipment is secured in place and highly-visible. If you still have classic, full size TVs our carts can accommodate your equipment as well.
Where is the best place to store laptops?
Many modern schools and offices have a considerable collection of laptops for training sessions or special class lessons. The advantage of laptops is that they can be taken just about anywhere in laptop carts. Laptop charging and storage carts keep these valuable computers secure when they are not in use. When it is time to take them out, they are fully-charged and ready to go.
Should I get a sound lectern?
Every auditorium and lecture hall requires a lectern or podium. If your rooms can house a large crowd of people, it is important to make sure that the lectern is equipped with the technology to reach large crowds. The most convenient arrangement to have is a sound lectern. With a built-in microphone and amplification system, the speaker won't have to strain to be heard - even in a very large room. Another great model from the Oklahoma Sound Corporation is the vision lectern. An LCD screen on the front of the podium can display a company logo or photos and slides which enhance a presentation and keep the audience focused.
If your presenters prefer to move around as they speak, or you don't have a built-in sound system, portable PA systems can really come in handy. Models are available with a personal microphone that can be held as the lecturer walks around, or a tie-clip microphone for hands-free operation. These options are great for the professional and educational settings. Headsets with wireless microphones are convenient when putting on a school play or arranging other performances and special events from behind the scenes.
What kind of projector should I get?
Every modern classroom, lecture hall and seminar room needs a handy system for displaying slide shows, video clips and other digital presentations. We offer a variety of projector setup options, so you can find the choice that fits every space. Table projectors can be setup anywhere, they don't require special accommodations. If your institution does not have room in the budget to equip every room with its own wall-mounted projector and computer system, a table projector is helpful because it can be moved around and set up in different spaces as needed. We also have overhead projectors for those who still prefer to print out slides and write on them.
Do I need a projector screen?
While a picture can be projected onto any plain white surface, the clearest images will result from the use of a projection screen. Freestanding models with a tripod support can be set up in any location. Wall- or ceiling-mounted screens can be rolled down when needed and stay in the same place, so no one will have to go looking around for the equipment when an event is about to start. Tabletop screens can easily be transported in a convenient case.
No matter what electronic equipment you are using in conjunction with an AV cart or multimedia lectern, having a built-in powerstrip is always helpful. With multiple outlets in easy access, you won't have to go searching around for plugs, or leave dangerous wires which can cause a tripping hazard running across the room. Having all electronics plugged in right there makes setup and cleanup much faster as well.
Hertz Furniture has all of the audio-visual equipment you need to bring your company or school into the twenty-first century. With great prices and a huge selection of top-quality models you can furnish any space with great AV tools.

The more students move around and are exposed to varying tasks, the better they will be able to absorb and process information. Flexible chairs and desks encourage innovation. They will help children develop their unique skills and interests by learning in different ways.
Most jobs in the modern world require some degree of collaboration, and the ability to work cooperatively to achieve a goal or complete a task is important for everyone. Mobile furniture facilitates project-based learning, which prepares students for the world outside of their formal education. It also saves money because schools can use the same flexible classroom furniture in many ways, rather than having to purchase new items for various purposes.
Rearranging a learning space several times in the course of the day draws students' attention and encourages children with differing strengths to contribute to the learning community. Flexible tables and desks promote individual work as well as group work. They can be arranged in clusters for collaboration or long rows for frontal lessons. Groups can also be varied in number according to the task at hand.
Flexible classroom furniture includes way more than the basics. Room dividers and whiteboards can play a key role in independent group work or small-group learning facilitated by a teacher. Individual clusters can use dry erase boards for brainstorming and sharing ideas, and then display their work so the rest of the class can see it. This option promotes creative solutions and thinking out of the box much more than a regular pen and paper. It also enables those who were not in the original group to get a clear picture of the ideas being presented as well as the thought processes which led to them.
Dividers are another great piece for those who want to maximize classroom configuration options. An open design in which small groups sit adjacent to each other and can overhear each others' conversations can help students come up with new ideas. However, some students might find the murmur of other groups to be distracting. Partitions can separate one room into clear sections so students can focus on their group and not be distracted by others who are close by. When an open learning environment is desired once again, they can easily be wheeled off to the side in a matter of seconds.
Educators benefit from flexible classroom furniture because it enables them to teach in a variety of ways. To create an even more versatile learning space, consider an adaptable teacher desk. The Nate desk has an extendable work surface which provides a great space for meeting with students as well as a built-in adjustable lectern. This gives teachers the ability to sit and work or stand and teach without having to move around or rearrange anything.
Having things in the classroom which can be used for a variety of purposes encourages young learners to explore and develop their creativity. Even from a young age, children can benefit from flexible furniture. In a preschool classroom, A+ activity tables let young learners work independently, in pairs, or in larger groups without having to move anything at all. Children simply rotate their bodies in different directions and they can benefit from different learning styles. Bentwood stools can form interlocking rows or circles so little ones can enjoy learning from many different vantage points. Cube chairs can be used as flexible chairs, tables or building toys - it all depends on what your students want to do with them.
Playpanel room dividers can expand your options in an early-childhood educational setting. They offer a great way to divide a room into preschool learning centers where young students can choose to participate in activities that appeal to them. Unlike permanent walls or heavy room dividers, play panels can be switched around on a weekly, or even daily basis. They will pique your students' curiosity and provide unlimited possibilities for what you can do with your classroom.
While designing a flexible classroom, storage should be a consideration. Mobile storage cabinets are ideal because they enable you to transport contents without having to do any heavy lifting. When even the cabinets can be moved around easily, almost any configuration can be arranged using flexible school furniture.
Flexible furniture can also come in handy in a business environment. Mobile training tables are perfect for professional-development seminars or training sessions. Flip tops make them easy to set up, transport and store. With casters at the end of each leg, moving them into position is a breeze. Flexible office furniture lets you set up conferences in a variety of configurations, without the limitations that regular tables have.
Mobile AV carts are necessary in both today's schools and offices. Bringing technology into the classroom is much easier when everything can easily be rolled from one room to another. Audio visual carts can hold your laptop, projector and other digital equipment so you can make a slideshow or play a video clip virtually anywhere.
With Hertz Furniture's versatile school furniture, a flexible classroom is right at your fingertips. You can have all of the student desks and school chairs you need with the ability to reconfigure them in numerous ways. Figuring out the logistics of choices and quantities can be quite daunting for those who have never chosen flexible school furniture. If you need help identifying the right flexible furniture for your school or office, contact the Hertz Design Center for free project-planning advice from the experts.
