Media City in Salford is comprised of three buildings which are home to 37 departments over 20 floors and 380,000sq ft. In addition to this the site also has two live studios.The new BBC HQ office concept embraces collaboration and communication, a common theme in the modern office. What is cool is that the statement chairs and textiles were designed by local students and manufactured regionally.
The media:scape was developed to improve the sharing of ideas within a group of people working collaboratively, allowing them to access and share information quickly and efficiently. As most collaborative work spaces support a leader-led presentation of information, Steelcase attempts to break these barriers down and make co-working more seamless and natural. This is done by merging furniture and technology, requiring one only to connect a laptop to the integrated touch pad. From then on you can display information on any of the displays set up with the simple touch of a button.
media:scape also has the capacity to include HD videoconferencing, further boosting collaboration ‘by transforming meeting rooms, connecting distributed teams, and sharing information seamlessly in dynamic new ways’.

From the professionals who dominate the iPod-dock, iHome, comes a product bundle that will take your compact laptop and transform it into an entire desktop work and listen station that’s still sleek, simple and free from ugly wires. The iStand Notebook Media Bundle (for both Mac and Windows) includes a laptop stand with an integrated iPod dock and speakers and a wireless keyboard with it’s own media controls…
So after you pick up this iStand Notebook bundle, your humble laptop will be a media-playing machine. Jam out to your iTunes collection or your iPod’s stored jams while you site pretty with your wireless keyboard on the couch. Plus, you get the added advantage of an upgraded home office workstation when you’re lot listening to music, with an elevated laptop screen and a non-compacted keyboard. Mac users will have their choice of white or silver finishes, while the PC version only comes in black. Yep, it’s just another ploy by ‘the man’ to keep the PC users down, we guess. The iStand Notebook Media Bundle should be available this summer and will retail for $299.99.
