Ramat Gan, Israel – 20 May 2009 – Tecom, the developer of the industry-leading TechPod Multimedia Lectern, is adding a one-touch recording option, integrating various third-party digital media recorders with the TechPod. TechPods are now being used with recording equipment from companies like Sonicfoundry Mediasite, MediaPOINTE and TVONE in a variety of facilities.

“The evolution from in-person lectures only to online education and training requires new solutions, says Aviv Brosilovski, CEO, Tecom. “We have added a digital recording option to the TechPod to ensure that lectures are available both live and on demand.?

Tecom’s TechPod Interactive Lecterns are renowned for their simple, user-friendly intuitive design with total AV control in a single, button-based control panel and interactive screen. Each TechPod comes with its own computer with a DVD player, VCR, public address audio system, interactive screen, lighting and projection screen controls, and a new option, a recording and a live-streaming system.

Tecom’s technology allows the TechPod to have a single point of connection to the digital media recorder, ensuring simplicity, ease of use, and minimal technical support and maintenance. The TechPod integrates a switcher and a scaler to send all input sources into a single XGA line. The multimedia recording option is ready to go immediately after initial installation of the unit within the facility, completely eliminating the need for both a machine with four inputs and an onsite recording technician to manage the process.

Once the lecturer pushes the record button, the digital media recorder captures all sources using the XGA and audio lines, creating a standard or high-definition digital recording for later access or for immediate live streaming. The recording can be played in and on various formats including QuickTime, MPEG-4 players, and personal media players; streaming can occur up to 5Mbps, 30fps, 1080p.

“By ensuring our lecterns work with the full range of digital media recorders, facilities can choose the equipment that works best for them? continues Brosilovski. “Our development of a fully integrated recording solution saves both time and money for Tecom customers and continues our mission to provide the most easy-to-use multimedia lecterns on the market.?

TechPods have rapidly become the lectern-of-choice for educational institutions, government facilities, hospitals, corporations, and military installations across the globe. Lecturers enjoy the ability to go from facility to facility and be greeted with a simple system designed to remove any technical barriers with virtually no training time. They simply turn on the unit and can immediately begin presenting their material.

“We have always prided ourselves on being very responsive to feedback from users, ensuring our technology remains truly plug-and-play. Now, lecturers can record their presentations for a wide variety of applications and audiences directly from the TechPod. This is exactly what Tecom technology is all about,” concludes Brosilovski.

Tecom Electronics will be displaying this technology at InfoComm 2009, to be held June 14-19 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. Tecom will be at booth 4764.
