Kramer Electronics Ltd. is proud to announce that Founder & CEO Dr. Joseph Kramer has received this year's Lifetime Achievement Award from Installation Magazine on June 29th at the InstallAwards ceremony in London.
"I am proud and humbled to receive this award," said Kramer. "But I would not have been able to achieve such success without the talent, hard work and dedication of our employees around the world," he added.
"Kramer was founded in the early days of the Pro AV industry with a vision to innovate. From day one, Dr. Kramer’s biggest passion was to develop a product and nurture it through its various phases until its release.
In the ensuing almost four decades, Kramer has been on the cutting edge of major industry advancements: the design and manufacturing of the industry's first video processor, the release of the industry’s first video over twisted pair; the development of the patented technology KRISP™ to increase the fidelity and range of RGBHV/VGA signals; the release of Kramer TOOLS™, a compact form factor that opened the door to pro AV equipment on a different scale; the launch of Kramer Control, a groundbreaking programming-free, cloud-based Control platform; and the launch of the industry's first IP-based digital sound processor.
“It’s quite uncommon in our world of AV that a founder is still an integral player in the vision and day-to-day operations of his company, especially after 36 years," said David Margolin, VP Marketing at Kramer. "Dr. Kramer continues to be motivated by his deep desire to lead innovation in the industry, which makes him an inspiration to all Kramer employees,” added Margolin.
The company was recently honored with three Best of Show awards at InfoComm 2017 for game-changing products that further cement Dr. Kramer's reputation as an innovator and leader in the industry. The products included Kramer Maestro, an innovative single-trigger room automation software solution; KN-DSP100, the first ever IP-based digital sound processor, and VIAshare, wireless peer-to-peer screen-sharing software.
