Kramer has made a big announcement ahead of InfoComm 2015 with the introduction of its K-Touch version 3.0, a cloud-based software platform for designing room control and automation BYOD systems. The new software will allow integrators to design systems that control lighting, HVAC, thermostats, as well as new and existing AV systems via a simple drag and drop architecture. It can be scaled to control more than 100 services from the cloud, controllable via any tablet or mobile touch screen. Users can control the system via their own Apple or Android devices.
Components are controlled primarily via Ethernet, but some products, such as Kramer’s FC-Series and third-party controllers, can also be controlled via RS232, GPIO, relays and IR. Since the programming is cloud-based, integrators will also be able to offer support, updates and troubleshooting support remotely.
Kramer currently is offering an online training course for K-Touch 3.0. Also online is an extensive support database with tutorials, articles, sample project files, videos and more.
