Lightware Introduces LEAD Program for Educational Institutions

March 22, 2024 - Lightware Education Audiovisual Developer (LEAD) program provides reliable, bespoke connectivity solutions with exceptional warranty program to promote campus-wide standardization

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

Lightware is known for creating stunning visuals in mission-critical experiences for many of the world’s most popular video and music productions. Lightware has a deep-rooted passion for innovation and engineering excellence, from blockbuster superhero movies to live concerts and productions. Now, Lightware has invested in engineering innovative room control solutions for campuses that allow teachers to access and control their classroom’s AV equipment seamlessly.

To reach the hands of educational institutions globally, Lightware has developed the LEAD program. LEAD provides education facilities with resources and benefits to create a standardized, campus-wide solution. The program offers includes Lightware consultancy and project design assistance, proof-of-concept tests and demonstrations, training for technical staff, comprehensive technical support, and extended warranty services. Notably, Lightware will extend the standard three-year warranty throughout the entire partnership agreement. Through LEAD, Lightware ensures the education partners have the best and most reliable solutions to accelerate connectivity and promote efficient learning.

"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.

Takacs added,“LEAD not only provides an opportunity for standardization, but it provides an uncommon opportunity to take part in developing the solutions of tomorrow. The LEAD Program benefits include consultancy and project design assistance, proof-of-concept tests and demonstrations, hands-on technical training, comprehensive technical support and extended warranty services. Most importantly, we are looking to provide peace of mind with the extended warranty." Roger Takacs, Vice President of Education

As a LEAD partner, schools participating in Lightware’s technology refresh program will receive an extended warranty throughout the entire agreement to ensure educational institutions are confident in their investment. Lightware is invested in building long-term partnerships with educational facilites, technology integrators, facilities managers and IT managers to provide connectivity solutions. As a result, Lightware’s in-house technicians and engineers will collaborate closely with end-users and integrators participating in the program to gather feedback to accelerate future advancements in connectivity solutions for education.
