Lightboard Information

A lightboard is a transparent whiteboard made of glass with internal lighting to make writing glow. A lightboard allows a presenter to write and draw while maintaining eye contact to deliver their message in a natural and engaging way. Video is filmed through the glass and mirrored so the orientation appears correct to the viewer. Lightboard presentations can be done live or recorded.
