Lightware Visual Engineering recently introduced its program to provide exclusive benefits for educational institutions. The he Lightware Education Audiovisual Developer (LEAD), available globally, was established to support the specific needs of schools by providing a reliable, consistent solution for campus-wide connectivity. 

“Many schools have been affected by rising technology costs and a lack of availability from other vendors,” said Roger Takacs, vice president, education for Lightware Visual Engineering. “As a result, they have been forced to move away from technologies they were familiar with. Lightware recognizes the immense benefit of providing a standardized solution. We are committed to ensuring educational facilities around the globe have access to Lightware technologies. We created the LEAD program to help them attain standards and solutions for campus-wide integration.”
