The Lightboard is used to record dynamic online videos.


You simply draw on a piece of glass using neon markers.

You maintain eye contact with your viewers, and your writing glows in front of you.

A camera "flips" the image allowing your writing (or inserted graphics) to appear normal to the viewer.

Before You Arrive

Before you arrive we ask you three questions:

  1. What is your goal?
  2. Do you plan to use additional graphics?
  3. How long do you want the video to be?

We’re Here to Assist

• Instructional designers are available at an additional cost to help to convey your ideas.
• Relax. We understand this may be your first time using this technology. We’re committed to making it a great experience.
• A producer will be assigned to you and will be with you the entire time.

“The Lightboard lets me draw highly visible sketches and equations as I lecture, work with my drawings in a natural way, face the camera, and capture good quality video without post-production editing.”
