Kramer Electronics is introducing the Kramer Network enterprise management platform for AV over IP solutions at ISE 2016. This new solution from Kramer enables the routing, management and control of standard AV and AV over IP systems and it will be on display in the Kramer booth, F20 in Hall 1 at the ISE show; being held at the RAI in Amsterdam from February 9th through February 12th.
After nearly 15 years of hearing about and experiencing the preliminary effects of the convergence of AV and IT worlds, Pro AV is finally converging with the IP world, and the result is a revolution within the market. The two AV and IP converging worlds have resulted in a growing need for simple yet globalized AV management and control.
As AV is evolving into a network−connected IP−enabled model, both AV and IT professionals are being presented with boundless possibilities for routing, managing and controlling “anything from anywhere.”
To meet this new market challenge of providing a powerful, yet simple global enterprise solution, Kramer has taken an active approach and developed the Kramer Network. The Kramer Network is a bridge between the traditional AV world and the evolving AV over IP world. It is one platform that can manage everything. Kramer Network is a powerful, all−encompassing enterprise software platform that lets you easily route, manage, control, operate and maintain all your Pro AV, IT and IP solutions with one convenient web−based interface. Kramer Network solution provides holistic approach to hybrid networks, managing both legacy AV devices and newer IP−based AV devices.
Enterprise Grade Dante™ Integration
On top of that Kramer Network is the only solution that provides enterprise grade Dante™ integration. Enabling user management, authentication, predefined connection configurations, dedicated virtual matrix, customized room view.
The most beneficial thing about the Kramer Network is that it lets both AV technology managers and IT managers alike, conveniently configure, control, and maintain large AV deployments from any single point anywhere in the world.
There are three basic components to the Kramer Network that allow users to route, manage and control a system of any size, spread out over any distance. The first is the Virtual Matrix. With Kramer Network it is easy to switch any number of audio and video sources to any number of destinations on an IP−based AV network. The software can easily scale from a few devices to hundreds and thousands devices. Users can simply just click in order to make audio, video, or audio and video connections from any sources to any destinations, anywhere.
The second is Enterprise Management. The Kramer Network provides an easy−to−use dashboard to manage all your standard AV and also AV over IP resources and provide system analytics, and it also has an intuitive user access rights management hierarchy built−in so access rights can be assigned quickly and easily, locally or remotely for convenient system troubleshooting.
The third is Control. The Kramer Network allows users to easily control both AV components as well as other important room functions, such as lights, shades, screens, displays, and more. Users can also remotely configure and control all the devices in any IP−based AV system. Kramer products introduced to the Kramer Network will be auto−discovered, and other products can be easily added as well.
The Kramer Network can be installed on standard, enterprise, virtual, or cloud servers, and the whole system can be web−managed, so it can be accessed or operated if desired from anywhere, any time, through a web client using a laptop, PC, or mobile device. With the Kramer Network there are both “Tree View” and “Room View” options for operation.
Since the Kramer Network deploys on a standard Microsoft Windows platform, there’s minimal Total Cost of Ownership. There is no programming necessary and anyone can be up and running quickly with the Kramer Network.
Kramer Network is the perfect fit for controlling digital signage networks, classrooms and lecture halls in colleges and universities and meeting rooms in corporate settings, as well as many other applications in the military, transportation, education, command and control, entertainment and medical vertical markets.
