Kramer has put to use its considerable experience in education and corporate markets to bring an uncomplicated, yet powerful AV over IP solution to professional collaboration. VIA Connect PLUS provides simultaneous wired and wireless presentation and collaboration for a variety of spaces with no need for any additional hardware. This cost−effective solution includes all the benefits of VIA Connect PRO together with an HDMI input. With any laptop or mobile device, meeting participants can display or stream full uninterrupted HD video (up to 1080p60), images and documents, or share any size file.
Latest additions to the software include the integration of Zoom and Bluejeans video conferencing software, which makes collaboration using these popular sharing platforms a one-click process. Dynamic content can also be shown on the main display during meeting downtime with an optional Digital Signage license.
The whiteboard feature lets you annotate, sketch out ideas or edit shared documents on the main display from your device. VIA Connect PLUS features mirroring for iOS (MacBook, iPad and iPhone), Lollipop OS 5.0 or newer (Android), and Chromebook. Users can show up to four sources on a single main display, with an incredible 254 sources being able to connect simultaneously with a compatible network.
David Margolin, VP Marketing for Kramer, said: “The benefits of this one-box solution extend far beyond the typical remit for collaboration. With BrainWare software from Kramer preinstalled, VIA Connect PLUS is a powerful tool that can monitor room booking and availability, for example. Meeting the needs of IT managers, VIA Connect PLUS connects seamlessly with our VIA Site Management software, which can monitor and manage the ‘health’ of the system, its efficiency and how it is being used. We encourage InfoComm visitors to visit Kramer on our 2929 stand to see the wealth of VIA Connect PLUS benefits in action for themselves.”
