Audiovisual manufacturer focuses on UX, software solutions, training
At this year’s ISE show in Amsterdam, Kramer Electronics will demonstrate its unique approach to IT-oriented Pro AV, showcasing its software-centric ecosystem, management solutions, intuitive meeting space automation, elevated audio and connectivity solutions, and more. What unites Kramer’s robust product lines and new initiatives is the company’s proven strategy of AV over IT. ISE 2019 highlights will include:
Kramer Platforms is a bold new concept that goes far beyond standard ‘convergence.’ Introduced for the first time at ISE 2019, Kramer Platforms consist of hardware devices that are software-driven so one box serves multiple functions. It’s an innovative new way to lead AV designs with software and maximizing return on investment and customization options. With Kramer Platforms, AV professionals can combine best-in-class solutions, such as Kramer’s VIA collaboration system with a Kramer Control brain.
On display at ISE will be next-generation Kramer Control, a code-free, cloud-based control platform. Kramer Control provides unprecedented agility, allowing users to deploy control in any space, at a fraction of the time and cost.
Kramer Network 3.0, an enterprise management platform enabling IT/AV professionals to easily configure and manage their entire Kramer product range, Dante™ devices and third-party devices from anywhere in the world. Kramer’s approach considers not only IT specifications, but also IT work methodologies, letting managers plan and deploy IT and AV systems in the same streamlined manner. This innovative platform is engineered for the IT manager. The result: less pain points, no silos.
UX FLASH TRACK
A positive user experience is essential for the reliable operation of an AV system. That’s why Kramer is investing heavily in sharing UX best practices in the AV industry. At ISE, the company will discuss how UX is a catalyst for new technologies.
