Kramer Electronics announced the release of KDS-7, a full AVoIP streaming solution. Per the Israel-based company, the solution fulfils requirements for low-latency, high-quality 4K60 content distribution and switching. It is thus suited for enterprise, education, homeland security, military or government sites of any size.
According to Kramer, the KDS-7 line delivers optimal user experience, enterprise IT-grade security and advanced, yet intuitive management. The product line also comprises a full range of networked end points. These include encoders, decoders, and auto-switch encoders, as well as a dedicated manager device.
Additionally, it supports 1K video sources and easily scales to suit the AV needs of numerous rooms and locations. Enterprise-grade IT security, built-in to all KDS-7 devices, protects the IT network.
Other Specifications of the KDS-7
The KDS-7 product line further expands the benefits of AVoIP. With AVoIP, the AV encoders and decoders connect to the end-points of the organization’s IP network. Leveraging the switching power of the IP network eliminates the limits on AV deployments. This would otherwise be constrained by the number of physical AV ports on hardware and that consume a great amount of real estate and energy. This simple and reliable approach thus enables numerous devices in a single network and makes expanding into new spaces easier and less costly.
Kramer says its AVoIP offering has already gained recognition for providing optimum scalability and flexibility. Now, with the KDS-7 line, Kramer is introducing even greater scalability and flexibility. The plug-and-play integration into any IP network speeds up deployment and significantly reduces costs. Additionally, it comes with high-resolution video and support for large-scale video wall installations. It also has full compatibility with end-user devices, including USB-C connection for simple collaboration and simultaneous charge. All these features ensure an outstanding experience for users, the company states.
“At Kramer we’re proud to be a leader in creating AVoIP products that accelerate hybrid work, improve hybrid learning across campuses and enhance performance of command and control centers at large-scale installations,” comments Gilad Yron, CEO Kramer Electronics. “Our new KDS-7 AVoIP product line furthers our mission, providing a superior user experience with its ability to support a large number of video sources, with low latency, fast switching, intuitive manageability and advanced security capabilities.”
