Interphase Unveils Interactive Display System During DEMO Spring 2012, Bringing Rocket Science to the Palm of Your Hand

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/18/12 -- Interphase Corporation (NASDAQ: INPH) today announced the debut of penveu™ -- an incredibly disruptive interactive device that radically evolves the industry by enhancing the functionality of installed projectors and large screen displays.

More often than these tragedies occur, thank goodness, business conditions change without warning. In reorganizations whole departments disappear, computer rooms are consolidated and moved, companies are bought and whole workforces replaced. I have had the u... (more)
