Middle Atlantic’s products do not tend to be the flashiest features of innovative systems. However, its furniture, rack, mount, connectivity and power solutions are so often the common denominator. At InfoComm 2017, Middle Atlantic will take credit for its industry-facing role with an Innovation Pavilion within its booth.
The Innovation Pavilion features concept solutions that challenge attendees to navigate the future of AV installations, according to Middle Atlantic.
“We’ve never done anything like this before where we’ve pulled back the curtain,” Rebeca Villareale, marketing manager, Middle Atlantic Products, tells CI. The displays which capture four projects, strategically chosen to show how Middle Atlantic sees the future of the AV market unfolding, she adds.
In one example, Villareale says the display will get attendees thinking about immersive design. “It’s our proposal for how the design experience can work more fluidly in the future.”

Middle Atlantic’s New Conference Tables Line
It’s hard to believe that Middle Atlantic hadn’t already launched a conference table line. “People probably assumed we already have one, but we’ve never really brought a table to the market,” Villareale says.
Middle Atlantic’s T5 Series conference tables are specifically designed to properly support AV technology with ultimate system reliability, according to a press release.
