Kramer Debuts Two New Versions of VIA Wireless Collaboration Solution at ISE 2017 — These are CLEARLY Aimed at Barco ClickShare
Kramer Electronics will take on Barco — head-to-head — at ISE next week with two new offerings from the Kramer VIA family of wireless presentation & collaboration solutions: VIA GO, marketed as a wireless plug-and-present solution and VIAware, a software-only solution for wireless collaboration. The company will display its full range of products and solutions in Booth 1-F20 next to the Europa entrance.
Kramer claims the VIA GO lets meeting participants instantly present from any tablet, phone or laptop. With both built-in Wi-Fi capabilities and connectivity to wired LAN, VIA GO is easy to install and turns any existing projector or display into a BYOD wireless-enabled device.
VIA GO features content streaming and includes mirroring for iOS,Android, Chromebook, and Mac. The solution keeps data secure with 1024-bit encryption.
VIAware is Kramer’s new software-only VIA offering for both collaborative meeting environments and education and training. VIAware turns Windows PCs with Windows 10 into fully-featured VIA devices. The software is available for leasing monthly or as a one-time license fee.
VIAware offers Kramer VIA’s full presentation and collaboration feature set. From any laptop or mobile device, in-room participants can view the main display, edit documents together in real time, share any size file, turn the main display into a digital whiteboard, chat with other users, stream full uninterrupted HD video (up to 1080p60) and more. VIAware also lets facilitators use e-polling and e-exams to easily and instantly measure how much students and trainees are actually learning.
Remote participants can easily join a meeting or class in real time with embedded third-party video conferencing and office apps.
The software works seamlessly with existing VIA clients and VIA Site Management and offers full support for all VIA Quick Connect features such as QR Code, NFC Tag and VIA Pad.
