free standing monitor stand

Thu Feb 16, 2012 9:10 am

i am trying to build a display for my company for going to trade shows. i want to mount a 32-42" LCD 1080p TV on a free standing monitor stand at about eye level. i would strap a mini pc like the Zotac ZBOXHD-ID40-U to the back. the stand needs to have a shelf for a keyboard. it also needs to break down for shipping. other than that i want something as minimal as possible. Can anyone recommend a product? i found this but didn't know if there were other choices.

while i'm asking can anyone recommend a shipping case for 32 to 42" monitors.

This requirement is a bit worrisome as there are more opportunities for someone to knock the stand off-balance. Is there any reason why this setup couldn't be used on a table instead? Or at least use a wireless keyboard, so that the keyboard does not have to be connected to the stand?

In any case, it sounds like what you need is more along the lines of a "portable computer tripod", which produces quite a few Google hits although most of them are designed for laptops.
