Are you searching for a convenient yet secure way to utilize your Ipad to integrate touchscreen technology into your presentation? We now have an integration kit for mounting an Ipad into new and existing lecterns.  This opens up a new era in presentations from the lectern such as speech prompt, chairman timers, audio visual control systems as well as immediate audience response.


Integrating the Ipad and mounting it onto the lectern will make sure that your lecture is delivered with ease and all your information is available at your fingertips. With a variety of presentation software apps available this will allow you to create an interactive display from the lectern.


The Ipad is secure with a locking system in place and is easily removed when required.


We can install the integration kit into a range of our lecterns for both new and existing customers.  Complete installation is competitively priced leaving you with nothing more to do than install your Ipad and appropriate apps.

Lectern or Podium?

Lectern Australia - Friday, July 08, 2016

Today's post is about the distinction between two mainstays of public speaking:  the lectern and the podium.

lectern is a raised, slanted stand on which a speaker can place his or her notes.  "Lectern" is derived from the Latin word lectus, the past participle of the verblegere, which means "to read".  The word "lecture" comes from the same source.


podium (pl. podiums or podia) is the raised platform on which the speaker stands to deliver his or her speech.  "Podium" is derived from the Greek word (pothi) which means "foot".  The word "podiatrist" (foot doctor) comes from the same source.

There are tabletop lecterns and there are standalone lecterns.  They come in all sizes and made from different materials.

It is important to make the distinction between a lectern and a podium.  And yet, many people say "podium" when they are actually referring to a lectern.  

Some might say that I am just nit-picking over semantics.  But suppose you're giving a speech.  You phone the event organizer and ask if there will be a "podium" when you actually mean a lectern.  If the organizer is not on the same (incorrect) wavelength and says "No", you might end up needlessly scrambling to find your own lectern.  If the organizer says "yes", you might arrive to find a real podium but no lectern.

To summarize:  You stand at or behind the lectern and you stand on the podium.

Diplomat Back By Popular Demand

Lectern Australia - Monday, July 04, 2016

We have been asked by many of our customers to bring back the very popular Diplomat lectern and we have now delivered.  The reason for rebirth of this product was our customers needed a solid presentable lectern at an entry level price.  

To date sales have underlined the popularity of this lectern and it's now here to stay.

The AL200S Diplomat is an ideal entry level lectern that looks the part in any school or training room.  This lectern comes standard with a single microphone and light socket and is powder coated in black with a black front panel. With a very attractive price tag this makes it an ideal purchase for the budget conscious purchaser.

We have made it even more rugged, reliable and transportable and also included all of the fittings needed to suit a large range of useful accessories.
