At ISE (Stand 1-F20) Kramer Electronics will demonstrate its approach to IT-oriented pro AV, showcasing its software-centric ecosystem, management solutions, meeting space automation, elevated audio and connectivity solutions, and more. What unites Kramer’s robust product lines and new initiatives is the company’s strategy of AV over IT. ISE 2019 highlights will include:
Kramer Platforms is a new concept that aims to go beyond standard “convergence.” Debuting at ISE 2019, Kramer Platforms consist of hardware devices that are software-driven, so one box serves multiple functions—with the goal of leading AV designs with software and maximizing return on investment and customization options. With Kramer Platforms, AV professionals can combine solutions such as Kramer’s VIA collaboration system with a Kramer Control brain.
On display at ISE will be next-generation Kramer Control, a code-free, cloud-based control platform. Kramer Control enables increased agility, allowing users to more quickly and cost effectively deploy control in any space.
Kramer Network 3.0, an enterprise management platform enabling IT/AV professionals to configure and manage their entire Kramer product range, Dante devices, and third-party devices from anywhere in the world. Kramer’s approach considers not only IT specifications, but also IT work methodologies, letting managers plan and deploy IT and AV systems in the same streamlined manner. This platform is engineered for the IT manager.
UX Flash Track
A positive user experience is essential for the reliable operation of an AV system, and Kramer is investing heavily in sharing UX best practices in the AV industry. At ISE, the company will discuss how UX is a catalyst for new technologies.

SCHOMS: Focus on BYOD
Committed to supporting technology managers and end users, Kramer is partnering with SCHOMS for a hosted buyer program focused on BYOD and collaboration. SCHOMS members lead and manage a diverse set of educational, technological, media, and institutional development and support services.
“The use of huddle spaces has grown over the past few years and the ability to stream content from BYOD is a key factor in their growth,” said Neta Lempert, VP business development, digital, Kramer Electronics. “As we reach a maturity of the huddle space concept, what is next and how should we prepare for it?”
Kramer Academy—led by leaders in the field—provides tools, skills training, and deep dives into core topics and fundamentals that IT and AV professionals need to know for the new era of AV over IT.
