Tecom First to Add iPad, iPhone Interactivity to Classroom Multimedia Lecterns
Feature-laden lectern ensures ease of use across all platforms: See it at InfoComm 2010, Booth C4359
Rosh HaAyin, Israel, and Las Vegas – May 10, 2010 – Tecom, inventor of the TechPod Interactive Multimedia Lectern, announces its latest feature, a docking port allowing iPads and iPhones to directly interact with the TechPod’s integrated audio-visual technologies. Tecom will be demonstrating the technology from June 9-11 at InfoComm 2010 in Las Vegas, Booth C4359.
"We are further strengthening our position at the forefront of the industry," states Aviv Brosilovski, CEO, Tecom. “Portable presentation devices are becoming more common in the educational market, so adding iPhone and iPad capabilities to the TechPod further reinforces the TechPod’s superiority for use in higher education and training facilities. TechPod’s new feature allows presenters to walk into classrooms with their handheld devices, insert it into the docking station, and, at a touch of a button, present directly through the lectern."
Universities such as Louisiana State, Trinity, and Rutgers have already integrated TechPods into recent facilities renovations. The TechPod has become the standard lectern installed during upgrade projects; it easily retrofits into existing facilities, ensuring any location can enjoy the latest combination of presentation technologies in a single unit.
With the newest features, Tecom is continuing in its mission to provide an always-available, simple interface to run multimedia presentations on-the-fly. Designed for intuitive use, the TechPod is an all-in-one lectern with all devices, such as computers, LCD projectors, and CD/DVD players, managed via a single control panel. Presenters no longer have to undergo extensive training on racks full of amplifiers, controls, and switches; they can now focus on their messages, not the technology.
With installations in universities, corporations, and military and law enforcement training centers worldwide, the TechPod has proven itself to be the most advanced, reliable and user-friendly multimedia lectern on the market. A green product, the TechPod reduces energy costs and minimizes bulb replacement. After use, simply closing the lectern’s cabinet door shuts down all equipment as it secures the entire system.
“Each year, we show the industry how Tecom can combine the latest technologies while maintaining our focus on simplicity and ease of use,” concludes Brosilovski. “This year is no exception. We look forward to allowing visitors with portable devices to instantly see how their technology seamlessly integrates with ours.”
