Ideum’s central location just outside Albuquerque—New Mexico’s largest city and a growing center of industry in the Southwest—gives us rapid access to all parts of the country. Moreover, this location allows us to maintain 3 dedicated studios for a combined 22,000 square feet of design and production space. Along with providing ample room for our designers and software developers, our campus has facilities for developing and assembling hardware and conducting software and usability testing in our Prototyping & Usability Lab, Production Studio, and Industrial Design Atelier.
Prototyping & Usability Lab
Ideum’s Prototyping & Usability Lab has space for A/V, electronics, hardware prototyping, usability testing, and video and photography production. Primarily used by our A/V Solutions and Creative Services groups, this flexible space has allowed us to mock up installations involving large video walls, immersive projection-mapping exhibits, and other technologies, increasing our ability to test and evaluate experiences throughout the design process.
Our Research and Development group uses the Lab to explore new hardware, including motion sensors and other HCI and IOT devices. We also use the facility to evaluate interaction designs, conduct usability testing, and hold design charrettes and workshops. When the Prototyping & Usability Lab is not in use, several Ideum touch tables are always set up and ready for demonstrations. If you are interested in visiting the Lab or conducting a video conference with our sales group, please free to contact us.
Each year, Ideum produces hundreds of carefully-crafted multitouch tables and touch walls for customers all over the world. Our exhibit technicians assemble and maintain these complex products in our onsite Production Studio. This space is fully optimized to facilitate quality production and testing of our large suite of standard models.
Ideum also works with metal fabricators in New Mexico and around the region to produce the multitouch table and display enclosures we design. Ideum’s custom ATA shipping cases are also fabricated by local companies. All design, computer and display integration, assembly, and testing occurs at Ideum’s home facility, which allows us to keep a close eye on quality control and efficiency.
Industrial Design Atelier
Ideum’s in-house Industrial Design group plans, designs, and tests integrated products, custom components, and exhibits in our Atelier. Located adjacent to our onsite Production Studio, we use this space to assemble, demonstrate, and evaluate prototypes built around our interactive displays and multitouch tables.
