Kramer Electronics will showcase a new range of open AV platform wired and wireless presentation and collaboration solutions as part of its virtual showcase at InfoComm Connected from June 16 – 18.
Kramer’s VIA GO² and VIA Campus² will both make US debuts at the show, designed to bring new levels of flexibility, simplicity and creativity to meeting and educational spaces, which can be controlled from a personal device, without requiring the sharing of dongles
Designed for use in classrooms, huddle spaces, and small meeting spaces, VIA GO² delivers wireless presentation functionality in a compact form factor, at an affordable cost. With 4K HDMI output, 1024-2048 bit encryption, 30Hz video streaming, and native AirPlay, Miracast, as well as Chromebook support, the new VIA GO² removes the need for users to install software on their devices. As part of Kramer’s quality and security assurance policies, all Kramer product lines, including VIA, comply with ISO 27001 certification.

Yael Chicheportiche, VIA product line manager, explained: “It works right out of the box, and everyone can use it. With the multitude of meeting spaces which are confined or are designed to host a small number of people, IT departments do not have the resources for dealing with a flood of help desk service tickets or calls. VIA GO² delivers on the promise of powerful and reliable wireless collaboration. On top of that, schools, colleges, and universities can easily upgrade their existing classrooms and auditoriums.”
The micro form factor of VIA GO² allows installers to mount the device on a projector, transforming an old projector into a powerful BYOD machine.
As VIA GO² comes with a built-in scaler, users can share various resolutions and the device automatically scales to the right resolution for the projector or display. “This device can take any AV signal in the room and make it work,” added Chicheportiche. “It also conveniently shows users when meetings are scheduled in the room and can utilise the room’s main display for digital signage in between meetings.”
Being shown alongside VIA GO², Kramer’s latest VIA Campus² is an end-to-end open AV platform for wireless presentation and collaboration, streaming, and video conferencing. The Windows 10 driven device supports any third-party app which increases versatility and productivity in every space.
Users can connect with any laptop or mobile device, to view, edit and comment on documents in real time and record sessions. Meeting participants can display or stream full uninterrupted 60Hz video from their device, with the ability to play YouTube videos in full frame rate. Due to its power and flexibility, VIA Campus² can handle any size of meeting or training space and diverse meeting scenarios.
Both solutions enable full meeting flexibility by supporting third-party conferencing and office apps, such as Microsoft Office, Skype for Business Microsoft Teams, GoToMeeting, WebEx, Zoom or any other video conferencing software codec.
