TechPod Presenter Gives Lecturer Complete Control over TechnologyLSU, Rutgers University Among Institutions Integrating Presenter
Ramat Gan, Israel – 20 April 2009 – The TechPod Presenter, an easy-to-use, all-in-one multimedia lectern, is an integral part of today’s educational and training facilities. Louisiana State University and Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey, recently installed TechPod Presenters as part of classroom upgrade projects, ensuring professors and lecturers can access the latest presentation technologies.
“Lectures that used to be given with notecards are now given from laptops; the pointer has been displaced, with lecturers making notes directly on our interactive screens,” says Aviv Brosilovski, Tecom CEO. “Products like our TechPod and TechPod Presenter lecterns are completely intuitive, ensuring that both technology experts and technophobes can learn to use them within the time it takes for the equipment to warm up.”
A stable, sleek lectern for any classroom, boardroom, or training facility, the TechPod Presenter requires no user training. Fully digital with a computer, DVD player, a laptop docking port and USB connections, it interfaces easily with all kinds of projectors. Its 19-21 inch interactive widescreen allows for live annotation, ensuring lecturers can add to their content “on the fly”. The Presenter’s external knobs allow for complete user control of audio, computer, and vertical unit motion.
Tecom leverages new technology as it is available to ensure that its interactive lecterns are always cutting-edge. “Some enhancements are based directly on user and integrator request,” continues Brosilovski. “Due to popular demand, now any control and asset management systems from any manufacturer can be integrated directly into the TechPod Presenter, allowing it to serve as the control hub for the entire room.”
Upgraded hydraulic lifts provide height flexibility, ensuring full comfort adjustment that meets all ADA requirements. A special locking system keeps the equipment “mischief free,” meaning that once the lecturer has adjusted the lectern preferred height, the height level can be “locked” in place.
Lectern pricing is extraordinarily competitive for both integrators and customers, considering the levels of technology in the units. In addition, Tecom has a special educational incentive program for educational facilities, to enhance their onsite technology to empower educators and students to do what they do best: Interact, collaborate, and learn.
Already in use at facilities in the United States, Europe, and the Middle East with more than 1 million hours of logged use, the TechPod family of lecterns are used in conference centers, lecture halls, civilian and military training and corporate facilities.
