Munich and San Carlos, California, 7 November 2011 – NEC Display Solutions Europe and Luidia Inc ., the leading provider of interactive technology that helps the world capture and share content, today announced that Luidia’s eBeam technology features in NEC’s newly launched NP01Wi line of interactive whiteboard kits.
“The integration of Luidia’s eBeam technology into our projector mount enables all NEC’s short and ultra short throw projectors to deliver advanced data interactivity to customers,” said Klaus Auerboeck, Director Product Management Projectors at NEC Display Solutions Europe. “Our customers will be able to not only view, but collaborate on, projected content in real-time. This leads to more exciting, engaging and, most importantly, productive classrooms and workplaces around the world.”
Intent on increasing collaboration, more companies and schools are adopting new technologies that help participants connect more closely to content and each other. A number of projector solutions on the market address this need, but require organisations to purchase and combine multiple components, which can be costly, cumbersome and time-consuming to implement and operate. NEC’s solution was to integrate Luidia’s interactive technology directly into its projector mounts – providing its customers with advanced data collaboration capabilities that make it easy to capture and share projected content in real-time.
“Luidia has a long-standing partnership with NEC and is excited to take it to the next level,” began Roy Erez, Luidia’s SVP of Worldwide Sales and Business Development. “Organisations are asking for richer, more engaging meeting experiences, because they result in important benefits, such as increased productivity, in the classroom and workplace. Luidia’s technology is the key for industry leaders like NEC to create products to satisfy this increasing demand.”
The optional NP01Wi module will be compatible with NEC’s U Series and M Short Throw Series projectors. The new interactive whiteboard module will launch in Europe in November 2011.
