Downview™ Visual Display Option

With Nova's Downview™ display option, you can view the monitor with a natural downward gaze, similar to the natural position you would be in if you were reading a book.

View Downview Products

In 1988, NOVA introduced a revolutionary new classroom furniture design which recessed a computer monitor below the worksurface. By doing so, the user could now view the monitor with a natural downward gaze, similar to the natural position someone would be in if they were reading a book. With a computer monitor below the work surface, the line of sight between students and instructor improved while also maximizing workspace. This new design would revolutionize the classroom environment globally.

The revolutionary and space-saving Downview™ houses your monitor beneath a tinted tempered glass viewport and utilizes an adjustable monitor arm to secure the monitor below the worksurface. Optional Privacy / Glare Visor is available for added privacy and to help reduce any glare from overhead lighting.
