Kramer Electronics, Ltd., a leading innovator in the field of AV/IT solutions, took home three industry awards at ISE 2017. Kramer Video Content Overlay (VCO) won Best of Show from AV Technology magazine, Kramer AOCH/60 fiber optic HDMI cables won Best of Show from Installation Magazine and Kramer VIA GO won the 2017 InAVation award for "Small Group Presentation (less than 20 people)."
"We are thrilled and honored to have received industry recognition this year at ISE for three of our newest and most innovative products," said David Margolin, Director of Corporate Marketing at Kramer," Each of these products is designed to not only support state-of-the-art display or AV distribution solutions, but they are also specifically aimed at the needs of IT professionals," he added.
The AOCH/60, an Installation Magazine 2017 Best of Show winner, is an Active Optical UHD Pluggable HDMI cable for 4K60 4:4:4 signals up to 100 meters (328 ft). This hybrid-fiber cable is designed to maximize signal integrity for long distance AV installations. Its innovative design features micro-HDMI ends with detachable HDMI connectors, making it easy to run through a conduit or other tight spaces. AOCH/60 cables are thinner, lighter and more flexible than copper or even standard optical cables while still providing transparent EDID, HDCP and HBR support without signal attenuation.
Kramer Video Content Overlay (VCO), a 2017 Best of Show winner from AV Technology Magazine, is a highly scalable modular solution for video content overlay and digital signage complete with user-friendly software and easy-to-install hardware. In a single click, users can display targeted promotional or sales campaigns, timely information, emergency alerts, and more in full HD over live HDMI video to multiple screens in venues such as hotels, bars, restaurants, and TV showrooms. The solution helps enhance sales activity; and in TV showrooms in particular, it can automatically overlay engaging content such as electronic price tags, push notification campaigns, product specs, logos, and more to any or all screens in any-size showroom.
Kramer VCO can be integrated with any retail management system and used with existing display network infrastructure. The solution can be operated and controlled from a centralized corporate database or a single PC in a single store.
Kramer VIA GO, a 2017 InAVation award winner, is an advanced wireless plug-and-present solution that lets meeting participants easily and instantly present from any tablet, phone or laptop.
