Podium Illuminiation

Have you ever thought that the front of the classroom podiums were too dark? Can’t find the USB ports on the computer or the eject button for the BluRay player? We thought it was pretty dark ourselves so we’re rolling out a lighting solution to help you see the the fronts of our podiums to help you get your class underway.

We used LED strip lighting which is not only inexpensive (at 40 cents per foot), but also very energy efficient at just under 2 Watts of energy per foot. This in conjunction with a motion sensor acting as the switch we created a cost effective and near invisible solution for illuminating the equipment inside of the classroom podium.  The lights will turn on as you approach the podium allowing you to quickly see the controls you might need and the lights will turn off automatically after you leave the classroom.

We’re getting these installed in rooms right now so let us know what you think!
