Abstract

As shown in Fig. 1, a visual display unit (VDU) 1 can be mounted on a tilt mechanism consisting of upper platform 2 hinged on lower platform 3 which in turn stands on the desk or table work surface. The operator can vary the angular position of VDU 1 by rotating upper platform 2 about hinge 4, operating a clamp to retain the selected position.
