Technology Planning Map

The Technology Planning Map will help you address the many aspects that need to be considered when designing a conference room.

Display  

Things to consider

  • What sort of display connections are needed? Examples are HDMI and wireless.  
  • Is the display located at the correct height for its size? Consider the screen distance from the table to ensure it is clear and readable.
  • Where is your accessible space? The ceiling? The floor? Will you need to run cables through either?

Understanding what connections your displays require can impact the specification of your table.

The Nucraft advantage: All Nucraft conference tables have been designed to support display connectivity.

Phones, Speakers, and Microphones  

Things to consider

  • Should the microphones and speakers be removable or do you plan to have them suspended above the table? This may require a custom design.
  • Are you using a conference phone or microphone for conferencing?
  • Is there enough space in the ceilings for overhead speakers and microphones?
  • Does your phone use wifi or is it hardwired?

Knowing your audio needs allows you to make a clear connection with those who are joining your conference remotely.

The Nucraft advantage: Small devices, remotes and most conference phones can be hidden when not in use in the Crossbeam Power Drawer.

The Table  

Things to consider

  • Are you considering power on the surface of your table or does it need to be concealed?
  • Where is your table located in relation to video conferencing cameras? Can everyone who is seated at the table be seen by the camera in its location?
  • Do you plan to use an A/V interface to connect to display? Will it reside on the table?

The type of power and A/V technology you need on your table is a decision of both function and appearance.

The Nucraft advantage: Nucraft offers table top and undersurface connections for A/V and power that best fit the needs of your conference room.

The Floor

Things to consider

  • Where are your floor cores located?
  • What is in your floor cores? Data? Power? Both?
  • Are your floor cores large enough to fit conferencing cables such as A/V and data?
  • Is the table base robust enough to handle the infeed?

The location of floor cores in a room play an important role in determining where a table can be placed.

The Nucraft advantage: Nucraft offers a variety of table bases to suit your wire management needs.
