What's New in 2023: Product Launches, Upgrades and New Features




AmpliVox has continued to introduce high-quality lecterns designed to empower speakers and enhance events.

Our latest collection of innovative lecterns combines unparalleled craftsmanship, cutting-edge technology, and stunning design to elevate your presentations and make a lasting impression.

In the audio visual world, the AmpliVox Maestro Adjustable Presentation Center puts you fully in command of your presentations with robust design features.

Moreover the maestro has an extra-wide 31 inch reading table to accommodate a laptop and much more.

It's designed for today's multimedia needs with such features as cable pass-through grommet, 110 volts power socket and optional data sockets.









AmpliVox's customization capabilities also include prominently displaying your logo.





Some chariots are built for speed, but the AmpliVox Chariot Lectern is designed to make you look good.

Built to exacting specifications by AmpliVox craftsmen, this elegant presentation center features beautifully sculpted curves that matches any d├ęcor.


The lectern is constructed of lacquer coated hardwood rail, a woodgrain laminate body and a black laminate base with four casters, two of them locking.






Made for the most sophisticated of settings, the Victoria Solid Wood Lectern takes quality to a new level. This multimedia podium and pulpit is both elegant and practical with its solid wood construction, scratch resistant coating and built in sound system.

Raised panel lectern gives a classic look in boardroom or auditorium. Multiple coats of durable clear lacquer preserve the natural wood and enhance the grain.

This solid wood multimedia podium enhances any decor and works well as lectern or pulpit, and its drop top reading table makes it easy to use with laptops and other multimedia devices.



The Presentation Control commands the live streaming and local recording from the presenters laptop and the lecterns control surface.

Custom Smart Presentation Lecterns - Cathedral of Saint Paul


AmpliVox not only produces great sound systems, we also specialize in designing custom lecterns for various settings such as conference rooms, lecture halls, churches, and other public speaking events.

We work closely with clients to create custom designs that meet specific needs and requirements, such as incorporating branding or logos, accommodating different types of technology, and can be designed in various styles and finishes.

Jim Gajewski, Business Administrator at the Cathedral of Saint Paul in Minnesota had reached out to AmpliVox to build them a custom presentation lectern for their School of Discipleship program.

The lectern is to serve as a focal point for presenters while implementing features such as a built-in sound system and multimedia capabilities, allowing speakers to enhance their presentations and engage with their audiences more effectively.

The custom Smart Presentation Lectern will be used for three scenarios:
  • In-Person Presentation Viewing
  • In-Person Presentation and Hybrid Viewing, for those joining remotely to view through Zoom, YouTube, or Facebook.
  • Hybrid Presentation and Hybrid Viewing, for those joining remotely to also have the capability to present using all available media.



The Presentation Control commands the live streaming and local recording from the presenters laptop and the lecterns control surface.


Multiview Confidence Display manages the video projector and broadcasting, Zoom viewers and media players.


Customized Control Surface administers the camera views and podium display.




Made for the most sophisticated of settings, the Victoria Solid Wood Lectern takes quality to a new level. This multimedia podium and pulpit is both elegant and practical with its solid wood construction, scratch resistant coating and built in sound system.

Raised panel lectern gives a classic look in boardroom or auditorium. Multiple coats of durable clear lacquer preserve the natural wood and enhance the grain.

This solid wood multimedia podium enhances any decor and works well as lectern or pulpit, and its drop top reading table makes it easy to use with laptops and other multimedia devices.
