Imagine this. Proactive digital signage. A platform that allows you to publish content to anywhere - from anywhere in the world. A control panel that shows you the health of every screen and media player. A media player that can control the screen. Notifications that tell you a screen is going out before it goes out. Live streaming from a media player. It exists. It is LAVA.

During this time, he discovered servers and networking and went that direction towards Novell and Cisco. Cisco certification came in the 90s and an interest in Internet security came shortly after. Reaching the level of CTO by the age of 33, Stephen showed a strong desire to succeed.

2008 - Lucid Networks was the initial business derived from our core philosophy. A network security firm that had a solution to a problem. In working with a number of media players and partnerw within this space, we found that none of them were able to meet our needs for our clients. So we created our own network.
2012 - Ideacage was the next logical step where we took our solution philosophy and extended it beyond the network and directly into the media players.
Having a great idea is one thing. Executing in real time is a whole other endeavour. During this time, we learned about what lucid networks and ideacage could manage in terms of both customization, flexibility and scale.
Another enhancement of our product line , the LAVA box, is a customized Intel NUC. That allows for a wired or wireless solution that integrates cleanly within the LAVA network. The LAVA box is capable of running all common media types, image , audio, video, at an enterprise level with any configuration of monitors. An ideal player for your enterprise network solution
Once we obtained confidence that our solution could scale to any network supported level, we began operaion overseas. This demanded development of our service wing, branded The LAVA flow. We pre-configure all of our products prior to shipment of ensure deliverability for our installation team anywhere in the world.
