Receives Best in Show Award from Government Video Magazine and Sound & Video Contractor Magazine
03 August 2014
Kramer Electronics is pleased to announce the new Kramer VIA Collage wireless collaboration product won Best in Show Awards from both Government Video Magazine and Sound & Video Contractor Magazine at InfoComm 2014. The Best in Show Awards, presented during the InfoComm show, honored outstanding products exhibited at the show.
The award−winning VIA Collage is a wireless collaboration device that allows people to “Meet Smarter.” The VIA Collage solves BYOD challenges and allows for the effective integration of PC, Mac, iOS and Android devices, allowing users to wirelessly collaborate in any meeting. With the VIA Collage, files can be shared quickly and easily between participants or with all participants at once. The VIA Collage also allows for full 1080p/60 HD video streaming and the main unit even has an HDMI input to allow the integration of an external video source. Up to 6 presenters’ screens can be dynamically displayed on a single display device and up to 12 can be shown simultaneously when two display devices are used.
The VIA Collage also supports third party applications such as Skype®, Go To Meeting®, Lync®, WebEx® and more. VIA Collage also has built in 1024 bit Encryption for information sent between the Collage and the meeting participants as well as a dynamic room code to prevent unauthorized participation in the meeting. The digital canvas created by the VIA Collage allows meeting participants to all work on the same document in real time and save the results to their device.
"VIA Collage works seamlessly in an almost spooky way. Everyone in the room can help create and edit a common document through their individual devices, then share it with others and save it to take with you. The system automatically recognizes attendees and makes connection―and collaboration―easy," explained Government Video Magazine.
Having received two Best in Show Awards, as well as receiving a great deal of positive feedback from show attendees, Kramer is excited about the introduction of the VIA Collage and the “Infinite Ways to Collaborate” the VIA Collage presents for users.
