Kramer announced three new VIA releases: VIA PAD, an instant-present USB touch device; VIA Site Management, an IT software solution for VIA administrators; and powerful collaboration software enhancements for VIA Collage and VIA Connect PRO.
VIA Collage is Kramer’s wireless BYOD meeting solution for TRUE-Collaboration™. VIA Connect PRO offers wireless BYOD solutions for True-Collaboration in mid-sized meeting rooms and huddle spaces.
VIA Site Management (VSM) has been added to the VIA family of solutions. VIA Site Management is an IT software solution that lets administrators view and manage multiple VIA rooms within the same network. Administrators can easily and remotely monitor each device, configure and manage software updates, check each device’s status, perform resets, and more.
VIA PAD, Kramer’s new external USB touch device for Mac and PC lets VIA Collage and VIA Connect PRO users present on the main display. Users can also present content by pressing “Step-in” inside the VIA app.
Kramer’s VIA v1.7 software update introduces 4K-UHD output for VIA Collage. VIA Collage users can present 4K-UHD content with compatible 4K-UHD displays. True iOS mirroring has been added to VIA Connect PRO. With both VIA Collage and VIA Connect PRO, iOS users can instantly present their screen on the main display. VIA v1.7 includes instant file sharing with any iOS or Android device and a Do Not Disturb mode. Do Not Disturb (“DND”) mode lets someone who is presenting keep another participant from stepping in to present.
The update also includes expanded multi-language support for both VIA Collage and VIA Connect PRO. In addition to English, German and Russian, VIA solutions now support Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, and Polish.
