Kramer to unveil wireless classroom system at InfoComm 2015

Kramer is to unveil a wireless classroom system at InfoComm 2015 that combines Kramer’s VIA system, its K-Touch Cloud-based control platform and HDMI/HDBaseT signal distribution.

The Kramer Collaborative Classroom starts with Kramer VIA Connect PRO for small group collaboration at tables or huddle spaces. With Connect PRO in small groups, students can share ideas from any laptop, tablet, or smartphone to one local display.

Kramer’s K-Touch 3.0 control system, integrated with Kramer’s VIA Collage, allows the teacher to control and manage local group displays. The teacher can share local displays instantly with any other group or the entire class or even turn them on and off. Anyone can use K-Touch 3.0 with any iOS or Android tablet.

Aviv Ron, VP business development and strategy at Kramer said: "Traditional classroom AV systems only provide main screen source switching; our solution supports interactive learning and BYOD, which becomes the dominant model in many education environments and corporate training rooms."
 
For a classroom with 25 students, the Kramer Collaborative Classroom would include up to five VIA Connect PROs, one VIA Collage, K-Touch 3.0 control, a Kramer VS-88DT HDMI/HDBaseT switcher, and Kramer HDMI/HDBaseT range extenders.

With VIA Collage’s third-party conferencing and collaboration apps, students can join the class remotely.
