We’ve all seen them from time to time. Settling in to your morning meeting, organizing your possessions and you look up as the proceedings begin.  Catching your attention in the corner of your eye, you notice the dusty outline of the rolling TV stands.  Experiencing feelings of nostalgia?

Too many.

These stands remind us a time back in our younger school days, the excitement that was felt when lessons wouldn’t go ahead and  instead the class would sit and watch a film.

For the most part, these television display solution were crucial to the successful outcomes of meetings. Able to show videos and presentations and, as time went on, the ability to connect devices and computers which revolutionized the way that conference meetings were held.

But, as the landscape of modern meetings evolves, are these rolling TV stands still a vital part to today’s office running, or are they simply too dated and unnecessary?

By using a portable television stand, conference rooms are able to maintain flexibility in the room. The television screens can be adjusted to suit any position and any number of viewers, allowing conference rooms to remain a flexible place for a meeting.

The majority of rolling stands also come with shelving options, allowing you to add further additions to the set up, such as DVD players, speakers or room for remotes and controllers. Cabling can also be hidden within a stand, making sure appearances are maintained at all times.

But, compared to a wall mounted screen, rolling stands to have a lot of disadvantages.

TV stands are renowned for how much room space they consume. This means, specifically in smaller conference rooms, rolling stands are not a space effective solution. In addition to this, as the stands are portable, users are constantly having to disconnect and setup the system, depending on where they want the screen to be used.  There is also the risk of the television being knocked over whilst on a rolling stand, despite whether it’s being used or not. If this happens, this can cost a business more unnecessary expenses.

For these reasons, more and more business are turning to wall mounted solutions.  Not only do they create a much more professional image for a business and their clients, but are also ten times more practical.

Nowadays, TVs are extremely thin and light. Therefore, when mounted on a wall, minimal space is taken up, allowing for more space in the conference room.  When positioned correctly, wall mounted TV’s become the focal point to a room, with minimal risk of damage or accidents.

All wiring for wall mounted setups can be hidden in the back and along walls, meaning rooms have a less cluttered feel and the setups can be left connected, meaning setup can be saved in every meeting, you simply turn it on and go!

In conclusion, although practical in the past, rolling TV stands are becoming a thing of the past and more and more businesses are opting for more professional, high quality solutions that save time and maximize opportunities.
