In an effort to put videoconferencing equipment in its place, Bretford offers their PHB5421 Video Conference Media Cart with Cabinet. The unit is 54" high and is constructed from steel with a choice of high-pressure laminate or veneer. It has heavy-duty 4" wheel plate casters, two of which are locking. Each column has a perforated panel that conceals cords and routes them to various shelf locations. Two adjustable exterior shelves and one telescoping shelf inside the cabinet make it very versatile to equipment needs.

Also from Bretford, the PDC0399 Document Camera Cart supports document cameras up to 24" x 28" (61 x 71cm). The upright support column has a removable panel to hide cords and route them to the floor. The second shelf is ideal for an LCD/Data projector or to place documents to be shown in your next presentation. Shelves adjust in 1 1/4" (3cm) increments with a Phillips screwdriver.
