Kramer VIA Connect

    Kramer VIA lets you connect wirelessly, collaborate easily, and engage everyone in the room in the work you’re doing. It provides a common platform for all those laptops, smartphones, and tablets in real time on one digital canvas. So things get done right then and there—not afterwards or through email.
    Kramer VIA is a shared workspace for team collaboration in real time. Anybody who’s in the room can help create and edit a common document through their individual devices, then share and save it. Designed to eliminate wasted time, lack of productivity, and distracted attendees in meetings, classrooms, and presentations, Kramer VIA is the enemy of inefficient meetings. That’s because VIA acts as a collaboration hub so you can:

    VIA is a solution that enables you to bring your own device (BYOD) to a meeting: Mac® or Windows laptops, tablets, iOS or Android based Smartphones. Just log on using Wi-Fi or LAN connections and you are connected. It’s wireless, it’s instantaneous and it’s easy!

    Attendees can work together in a meeting, using VIA’s network. All you do is click “Step-In” and your screen is integrated on the main display. Then, you can start collaborating and interacting with other participants, work on a shared document, save it and send through the VIA Cloud or even use the interactive whiteboard.

    VIA enables authentic engagement in meetings. You can share your files with other participants, chat or stream full HD videos in perfect quality. Everyone gets to participate, interact and be involved. Attendees become active participants – not bored bystanders.

                Where are AV Integrators Going?

                  Well not away, if you must know. The coming years for AV integration is quite exciting, but challenging as the merger of IT & AV matures.

                  Cloud: Everybody’s going there, everybody is tired of the name. But AV as a Service is also moving to the cloud. Both Client and Integrator will win. The Integrator because of the ongoing monthly revenue. The Client because of the value the integrator will view the partnership and the need to constantly provide a best service to the client, over a lifetime. The even better news for the client will be no further requirement for big capex budgets in order to keep up to date with the technology. Their Integrator will insure that is the case ongoing. Video Conferencing will be the dominant product in this space and when the standard moves to web based RTC, watch the exponential growth.
                  Smart Building: AV Integrators own the expertise and technology excellence to manage a secure IP platform to run a commercial building. Cisco, IBM, Honeywell and Accenture are all aware and involved in this space as a result. Water, Access & Security, Fire & Life Safety, Elevators, Lighting, HVAC, Energy Management, High Speed Internet, Wireless Connectivity, VPN Access, IP Telephony, AV Conferencing and Digital Signage can all be seamlessly managed and integrated through one smart IT platform.

                  Big Data: A collection of data sets so large and complex, that it becomes difficult to process using on-hand database management or traditional data processing. Otherwise known as ‘the internet of things’. Well with every object having an IP address, this will allow AV Integrators to gather useful information for the client and make decisions, as a result of this. This will mean the Integrator will even get closer to the client, with ongoing useful information and ways of improving client efficiency or even saving them money.
                  It is thought the space will become so specialist and client/ integrator relationships, so tight, that the Integrator needs to choose the segments that they are best in and as importantly, choose the market segments they are best not in. Gartner have recorded that 15%-40% of the AV Integrators we have today, will not exist in 3 years. Up to now, the sales person was able to roll up their sleeves and dig in. The future is about a group of people selling to another group of people, always asking how can we improve the clients business and when they can expect their return. Paying attention to our clients wins.
