Luidia Previews Classroom Technologies


At the InfoComm show in Anaheim, CA last week, Luidia previewed several upcoming enhancements to its line of classroom technologies, including new student response capabilities and various updates to eBeam-based systems.

On the software side, the company previewed version 1.4 of its system, which adds in Flash integration, including the ability to import and interact with Flash content. The company also showed off enhanced capabilities for eBeam Complete, which, when released, will allow for simultaneous display on both projectors and non-projectors. Luidia also showed off InfoWall, which is designed to allow for multiple projection devices to be combined to display a single larger image. InfoWall, targeted primarily toward higher education, is expected to debut in 2008.

Finally, Luidia also previewed a new student response system called eBeam Respond. The system integrates with eBeam products to provide live student polling, assessments, and other sorts of communications through the use of handheld remotes, which Luidia is OEMing from Turning Technologies, developer of the TurningPoint SRS. eBeam Respond is expected to launch at the end of summer.
