At ISE 2020, Kramer shared its IT-centered pro AV message – AV over IT – as well as a suite of new AV solutions “designed to work seamlessly within IT workflows and IT methodologies.”

Kramer has been “shifting its strategy and investing in IT-friendly pro AV solutions in recent years,” according to the company announcement.

That includes “integrating hardware, software and cloud systems like Kramer Control, Kramer Network Enterprise AV Management Platform, VIA wireless presentation, KronoMeet Room Booking & Scheduling, Maestro integrated automation and more,” the announcement says.

“Software-driven AV functionality on a single device is implemented throughout different systems, creating Kramer open AV platforms,” according to the company announcement. This “enables multiple functionalities like integrated video conferencing coupled with room control and automation, digital signage and much more,” the Kramer announcement says.

“The industry is at its final stages of the convergence shift,” said Kramer VP of marketing David Margolin in the company announcement. “IT has indeed taken over AV, and this requires a new approach to AV in general.

“It requires new kinds of solutions and different ways of working. We are committed to positioning Kramer as a provider of IT-friendly AV solutions, investing heavily in meeting the challenges and motivations of the IT department,” he said in the announcement.

“We have integrated our IT-friendly philosophy into many of our products and solutions. The Kramer AV over IT approach is aimed at making AV systems and services completely IT-friendly—easy, secure and managed,” said Margolin.
