Digital coffee table maker based in New Mexico

ALBUQUERQUE (KASA) - Ideum, the company responsible for interactive digital coffee tables is based out of Corrales and Albuquerque, New Mexico. The popular item is quickly revolutionizing home entertainment and family time.

“It’s an incredibly versatile product in, it’s reliable that we have some of the best fidelity in the market,” says Paul Lacey, Chief Technical Officer of Ideum. “Arguably the best given the size and given the flexibility of the product.”

The innovation from the workers at Ideum is not only seen in the incredible machines they produce, but they also fabricate some of the parts to cut down on costs and production time.”

“A lot of what we are doing is unparalleled,” adds Lacey. “Few competitors, what we’ve produced here is homegrown it’s made in Albuquerque and Corrales we have, even the metal fabrication is here in state, we do all the assembly and testing here in Corrales, we even do a lot of the software development so we’re a one stop shop in many respects.”

That also includes use of a 3D printer making more efficient and smaller parts to keep the machines in a sleek design.

“All you have to do is plug it in,” says Lacey. “Press one button and the system takes care of itself, it turns on, the application launches and you’re ready to go.”

With all that ease of use, another selling point for the unit is it’s durability.

“Because we had that background of where we had a lot of moving parts, a lot of optics, trying to harden it and make it so it’s bulletproof for public facilities,” says Lacey. “We actually did tests where we could drop bowling balls on our systems and they just bounce right off.”
