Q: What is the design process like?
Ideum works collaboratively with our clients to understand the needs of our clients and the functions of the meeting room and the conference table. We work to design systems that meet our client’s goals for collaborative environments, sales processes, “war room” or “command center” functions. Often we design 3D renderings and walkthroughs of the meeting room space.

Any of our Inline Displays can be integrated into a custom meeting room table. Our standard Inline sizes are 43” 49” 55” and 65”. We can also integrate the 86” display from our Colossus touch table.
Q: What type of screens are used?
We use our Inline Displays which have 3M touch technology (up to 80 simultaneous touch points) and LG commercial 4K UHD screens rated 24/7. These unique touch displays are designed to fit flush and seamlessly into tables, cabinetry, and even walls. You can download the Inline Specifications PDF document.
Q: What operating systems are supported?
The latest version of Windows 10 Pro is commonly used. However, we can use older versions of Windows if requested (as long as these versions are compatible with the touch and connectivity hardware).
Q: Besides touch screens what other technology is embedded in these interactive meeting room tables?
Commonly these custom conference room tables have data ports, power, and other connectivity options for laptops, phones, and other devices. We have used Crestron controls which can be used to switch sources (for video walls, projectors, microtile walls, etc.) and to control lighting, shades, and other technology commonly found in collaborative meeting spaces.
