AV electronics and networking solutions major Kramer took its AV over IP/IT concept to a new high on the ISE 2018 platform with a broad range of new solutions. While the AV electronics giant’s booth comprised a huge slew of new products/systems, they all essentially represented four major categories:
Kramer Network 2.0, an enterprise management platform enabling IT/AV professionals to easily configure and manage the entire Kramer product range, Dante devices and third party devices from anywhere in the world
DGKat 2.0, second generation of Kramer’s ground-breaking extension technology featuring PT-871/872 transmitter and receiver pair that support 4K HDR, HDMI 2.0 and HDCP 2.2 signals and 2-way powering over twisted pair. This compact extension solution delivers video signals up to 40m (130ft) over Kramer CAT copper cables at up to 4K@60Hz (4:4:4) 24bpp video resolution.
Maestro V1.5 room automation software offering a customized, easy-to-configure, fully-automated meeting room environment, without requiring any programming. Maestro transforms regular meeting spaces to intelligent and productive work environments that require minimal end-user intervention to get meetings up and running.
Addition of two integrated AV presentation systems – VS-88UT and VS-622DT – that help consolidate multiple AV functionalities into a single presentation system. Both systems feature matrix switching, HDBaseT 2.0 range extension, room control, and outstanding audio capabilities all in a compact form factor that unclutters the rack.
“As much of the industry continues to talk about Convergence, we want to say, we are already past that,” says David Margolin, VP-Marketing at Kramer. “We are talking much bigger in that, it’s not just about IP technology or enterprise management, or tools for protocols or process; it’s about workplace technology, how we present our technology to the new order of AV or IT organizations.”
“These products represent a whole new level in Kramer’s line of presentation systems, which is all about cost effectiveness for both system integrators and end users”, said Aviv Ron, VP Business Development & Strategy for Kramer. “These innovative, all-in-one, complete solutions for routing audio, 4K video, control and data deliver excellent user experience at extremely attractive price points”, added Ron.
