New Tech-Laden Lectern Promotes Simplicity

TechPod Lite
Tecom's new TechPod Lite

A maker of high-tech lecterns has introduced one that doesn't require the instructor to set up a laptop computer to make presentations. Tecom's recently launched TechPod Lite features an ultra small form factor PC from Dell with plug and play capability.

To run a presentation, the instructor inserts a DVD or connects a USB device and clicks once to start the session. If the instructor wants to use his or her own laptop, the lectern includes a docking port and one-click switching feature.

The set-up also includes a 19-inch interactive screen with an adjustable mount, a keyboard in a drawer, and a mouse, as well as an integrated sound system. It comes with an interactive pen display that allows the presenter to make annotations to images and broadcast them to the audience.

The TechPod Lite begain shipping in April. Pricing wasn't available. Further details can be found here.
