InfoComm - Kramer to Unveil Innovative Wireless Classroom Solution at InfoComm 2015

Kramer Collaborative Classroom Combines Kramer's Award−Winning Wireless Collaboration Platform, Advanced Control and HDMI/HDBaseT Signal Distribution

Kramer will unveil at InfoComm 2015 a complete wireless classroom solution that combines Kramer's award−winning VIA Wireless Presentation and Collaboration solutions, Kramer K−Touch 3.0 Cloud−based control platform and Kramer 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 easily and efficiently share ideas from any laptop, tablet, or smartphone to one local display.

Kramer's K−Touch 3.0 control system, integrated with Kramer's fully−featured 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 easily use K−Touch 3.0 with any iOS or Android tablet.

The solution's scalable design enables a new level of interactive learning with innovative technology that works transparently and seamlessly in the background.

"What's exciting about our Collaborative Classroom solution is that it can dramatically improve the way students learn together and share ideas," said Aviv Ron, VP Business Development and Strategy at Kramer. "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," he added.

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.

"The Kramer Collaborative Classroom is a truly unique and affordable approach to interactive classroom instruction and is expandable to any class size," said Ron.

Teachers can also quickly switch in local media sources like Blu−ray players, set−top boxes and cameras. With VIA Collage's third−party conferencing and collaboration apps, students can join the class remotely.

The Kramer Collaborative Classroom system is an innovative solutions approach that opens up a whole new method of classroom learning and instruction.
