Kramer is surging forward in the exciting field of Pro AV/IT for Education. With investments in both classroom and training room products and solutions, the company is poised to lead the way in this growing market.
At InfoComm 2015 in Orlando, Florida, Kramer introduced and was honored for its latest Education solution initiative, the Kramer Collaborative Classroom. Kramer Collaborative Classroom is a complete wireless classroom solution that combines advanced control and wireless presentation and collaboration with the convenience of BYOD. The solution features Kramer’s award−winning VIA TRUE−Collaboration™ solutions; Kramer’s award−winning K−Touch™, a cloud−based platform for advanced room control, and industry−leading HDMI/HDBaseT signal distribution.
At the beginning of 2015, in an effort to better understand and address the needs of the Education market, Kramer founded the Kramer Education Solutions Circle (KESC), an exclusive community of AV professionals from leading academic institutions. KESC members participate in an ongoing dialogue with the Kramer team to take an active role in developing exciting and innovative Education solutions. KESC’s members are invited to exchange ideas, offer their field−tested wisdom and directly contribute to designing new products and solutions for education and training applications.
Kramer’s investments in improving the way people engage and collaborate in classrooms and training venues have led to success stories like this one:
In January 2015, Sheldon College in South East Queensland, Australia integrated Kramer VIA Collage into their classrooms. They were looking for a way to encourage collaborative thinking and enhance their students’ overall learning experiences. They wanted to make presenting, collaborating and sharing content easier and more efficient within the context of their Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy. The myriad of devices students brought to school, with different operating systems and release versions, presented a huge hurdle for the system designers.
“We needed a solution for wireless connectivity of the students’ portable media devices. We tested and evaluated a number of the leading brands of wireless collaboration systems and the VIA Collage was chosen as the best of its kind currently on offer,” said Julian Stirling, Design Manager for Integration Partners Australia.
As a part of an ongoing effort to introduce new wireless presentation and collaboration solutions, Kramer will be releasing a new VIA solution to address the unique challenges and opportunities in Education and Corporate Training. The solution will offer unique and powerful collaboration features focused on enhancing student−teacher interaction.
