Video Production Studio


Created by Northwestern Engineering Professor, Michael Peshkin, Lightboard is a glass chalkboard that uses light to allow users to face viewers while writing and recording a lecture. The board is video taped in mirror reflection, giving users a quick and easy way to communicate technical subjects, equations, and sketches, all while engaging with the camera and the viewers. See Lightboard in action
