Kramer has extended its popular VIA family of sharing and collaboration solutions with the launch of VIA Connect2. This newest VIA is designed to facilitate hybrid meetings and learning in the Hybrid Generation (‘Generation H’) for the enterprise and education markets.
With its ease of use and enterprise-level security, VIA Connect2 enables infinite ways to engage, transforming any room into a collaborative space.
Since 2020, much of the global workforce has been working remotely. VIA Connect2 provides businesses and organizations the flexibility they require for employees, clients and consultants to engage with each other, collaborate and maintain productivity in hybrid work environments. School districts and universities have a similar need to create smart, wireless hybrid education classrooms for in-class and remote learning to strengthen student participation and engagement.
VIA Connect2 creates one Unified Communications & Collaboration (UC&C) experience, with flexibility for wirelessly sharing, engaging and collaborating anywhere, from any device, with any video conference platform. It also features a wired HDMI input for automatic switching to an in-room 4K or HD display.
Users can Bring their Own Meeting (BYOM) unit either using built-in VIA apps for mobile and desktop, or app-free over local networks via AirPlay and Miracast for a fast and touchless connection. Once paired, every meeting and class benefits from the VIA Connect2’s ability to add professional in-room AV equipment via USB. This flexibility includes adding displays, cameras, microphones, speakers and more, delivering the best AV performance for in-room and remote participants. Alternatively, the Teams or Zoom client can be launched with one click directly though VIA Connect2.
Simple, flexible, and secure, VIA Connect2 is designed for Generation H. It enables any Windows, Mac, Chromebook, Android, or iOS device to instantly and wirelessly join a meeting or class with enterprise-grade security. In the office, remotely from home, in-transit, or the other side of the world.
Like the entire family of VIA solutions, VIA Connect2 can be centrally deployed, managed and configured using VIA Site Management (VSM). This advanced software management platform enables IT administrators and integrators to maintain hardware remotely via the cloud or through on premises networks.
