Over 800 of the leading European manufacturers, dealers and consultants gathered at this prestigious venue to hear the announcement of the winners. Kramer Electronics entered two categories in the 2012 AV Awards; Systems Product of the Year with two products in the final list, and Manufacturer of the Year.
The Digital Step−in system won the distinguished Systems Product of the year award. In addition, the second product family entered in this category, the Kramer CORE™ Multi−Format Modular Routers, consisting of the VS−1616D, the VS−3232D and the VS−6464D, was also chosen as a finalist in this award category. In the Manufacturer of the Year category, Kramer received the only commendation among many other market leaders, another outstanding achievement for Kramer Electronics.
The Digital Step−in™ System brings incredible flexibility and versatility to any state−of−the−art boardroom allowing users to seamlessly connect to the boardroom projector from any source with any known video interface. The system consists of a switcher and up to eight Step−in modules, each connected by one twisted pair cable (Kramer’s DGKat cable is recommended), with two additional local inputs (DVI, HDMI) also available. It allows each of the participants to connect their source to the system and take control of the main display by pressing the Step−in button on their individual control module. Control modules are offered in HDMI, DVI, DisplayPort and 15−pin HD computer graphics video, all with separate audio input. An additional multi−format module, the X1, combines all the video interfaces, to meet every possible need.
Winning this year’s AV Award for Systems Product of the Year, and also receiving a prestigious commendation in the Manufacturer of the Year category encourages us to look forward to next year’s 2013 AV Awards ceremony where we will have even more new and exciting products to be considered.
