Established in 1992, The National Defence College (NDC) is the highest military institution for the training of senior military officers in Nigeria. The College main 450 seats auditorium required highly advances solution for presentations and controlling the Audio-Visual equipment in the room.
The project consultant Hewelt Systems Ltd was instructed to provide a solution to the challenge. The intention was to allow trainers and participants to give presentations seamlessly from their podiums without relying on the control room operators to call up their slides. Additionally, the projector in the room had to be updated to support as a backup alongside an LED video wall display.
The AV integrator choose to deploy two Tecom Electronics TecPodium Interactive Lecterns TPI-12W podium. The Interactive Lectern provides a world class connectivity with other appliances in the hall.

Sporting a modern look and an easy-of-use push-buttons, user friendly interface, the TecPodium Interactive was chosen for its smart capabilities, helping presenters focus on their materials.
TecPodium Interactive unique design allows seamless transition of presentation sources – from PC to laptops, document cameras and more. The AV Integrator installed a 4.5 x 3 m LED screen with a motorized screen as a backup. This was to provide a professional display solution for such a large audience with an immersive viewing experience.
The control room was fitted with video mixer switchers to take and switch multiple audio and video inputs. In both sides of the auditorium, two fully equipped TecPodium Interactive lecterns (TPI-12W) were installed with multi-touch capabilities serving as the brainbox for presentations and lecturers.
