lightboardTo create more engaging and personalised video lectures, CIT has installed a Lightboard at Practice Room 1, Stephen Riady Centre, University Town.

In this recording studio, the Lightboard is positioned between the lecturer and the camera. The board consists of dual-pane glass that is lit from within by LEDs.
