The Salmon Library media:scapes

Steelcase's media:scape set up is designed for quick collaboration without requiring complicated wiring or display know-how. Their goal, and ours, is to help you work with your peers and colleagues and to share assignments without having to crowd around the same small laptop screen. All you have to do is hook your device up to the PUCK (Personal User Control Key) and then use the PUCK to share the display with any or all of the media:scape monitors. Steelcase provides the following as a quick-start guide (taken from the media:scape brochure):
