What Are AV Carts?
Whether in the office, school, or hospital, AV carts improve one's ability to easily move around with electronics or a large number of supplies. They come in several different materials such as metal, plastic, and wood, with different configurations to suit a variety of needs. Choose one with an adjustable height to get a comfortable fit and avoid slouching or hunching over or choose one that can carry up to 300 lb. worth of equipment. If you're securing valuable equipment, consider a mobile AV cart with a locking cabinet for added security.
What Are the Features of Media Carts?
Media carts come with several features that make them versatile tools in the office or classroom. Some have multiple shelves like bookcases for storing books, files, and televisions or projectors for movies and presentations. Retaining clips on the shelves prevent objects from sliding off.
Some multimedia carts for school and office use have a slide-out tray for a keyboard, much like an office desk, making it possible to set up a desktop PC to move between rooms for collecting student and patient information. Caster wheels improve maneuverability across multiple flooring types including carpet, tile, and concrete, and some include brakes to keep the media cart from moving on its own.
How Can AV Carts Be Used?
Many AV carts come with electrical outlets built into the side to plug in electronics such as VCRs, DVD players, laptops, televisions, and projectors. The outlets are powered by a long cord that plugs into the wall, typically measuring between 15 and 20 feet long, though some may be shorter or longer depending on the model. The cord wraps around the handle on the AV media cart for easy storage when not in use. Most, if not all, accommodate 3-prong plugs.
Instead of setting up a designated area, such as a TV stand, in a classroom or conference room, teachers and office employees can save space in a room with a mobile setup that easily stores away in a closet or storeroom. Media carts also come in handy for office meetings and presentations.
Why Should You Shop for AV Carts?
Multimedia carts can help simplify your life and have numerous applications. For example, tutors can use mobile AV carts to go from room to room for teaching individual students. The multiple shelves on many audio video carts also allow you to plug in your cell phone, laptop, and other devices.
