NEC Partners with Tidebreak

Interactive and learning technologies manufacturer Tidebreak has partnered with NEC by joining the latter's Univerge Solutions Partner Program.

Interactive and learning technologies manufacturer Tidebreak has partnered with NEC by joining the latter's Univerge Solutions Partner Program. NEC is currently demonstrating Tidebreak's classroom collaboration solutions at Educause 2009 in Denver.

"We imagine the campus of the future as an augmented-reality environment where real and digital worlds meet to stimulate collaborative learning; where mobile devices, interactive learning spaces, and social networking communities are seamlessly integrated," said Dr. Andrew Milne, CEO of Tidebreak, in a statement.

By joining the Univerge Solutions Partner Program, Tidebreak will work with NEC to provide its collaborative classroom environment for education customers, says the company. According to NEC, Tidebreak's interactive learning space technologies support three major ideas: transforming large displays into communal work surfaces; enabling the easy movement of content among students and devices in a classroom or group meeting; and automatically capturing and disseminating information to participants as they co-create new ideas.

Tidebreak officials say its technology offers campuses a software-based alternative to a traditional AV hardware infrastructure, creating the potential to lower total cost of ownership and maintenance costs.

"Tidebreak introduces an original approach that fosters student learning based on peer-to-peer interaction. Together, NEC and Tidebreak offer universities a complementary solution that completes the modern classroom," said Sydney Burton, director of education markets at NEC Corp. of America, in a statement.
