Kramer, the Tel Aviv, Israel-headquartered audiovisual experience company, and Jabra, the personal sound-, video- and office-solution provider, have joined forces to create a wireless presentation and collaboration solution for huddle spaces to large conference rooms. The solution incorporates Kramer’s VIA Connect2 and VIA Campus2 and Jabra’s PanaCast video range to create a bespoke solution designed for the hybrid workplace, giving remote users the same great experience as those who are present in the meeting room.
According to Kramer, the powerful multi-participant content-sharing capabilities of its VIA Connect2 for hybrid meetings and VIA Campus2 for lecture halls and classrooms, come together with the intelligent features of Jabra PanaCast to create a fully certified solution that is quick to install and intuitive to use.
The solution delivers advanced and scalable bring your own device (BYOD) and bring your own meeting (BYOM) participation with plug-and-play capability and One-Step-Conferencing through sessions that are driven from the user’s own device for touchless operation.
Kramer’s VIA Connect2 and VIA Campus2 integrate with Jabra’s PanaCast 50, which features astounding audio, a unique 180-degree field of view and intelligent zoom and Virtual Director mode to make meetings more immersive. Real-time whiteboard streaming ensures inclusivity for seamless remote collaboration.
The Kramer VIA Connect2 and VIA Campus2 are compact wireless presentation and collaboration devices with the smallest form-factor in the industry. They can be deployed, managed and configured remotely using VIA Site Management (VSM). This software management platform enables IT, AV integrators to maintain hardware remotely via the cloud or through on-premise networks.
The Jabra PanaCast AV intelligent and secure solutions work with all leading UC and conferencing solutions, enabling teams to connect anytime, anywhere from whatever equipment they’re using with professional audio and video features.
“Jabra’s PanaCast is an amazing line of video bars and combined with Kramer’s leading wireless presentation and collaboration platform, we bring best-in-class audiovisual experience to teams working together. Our partnership goes beyond the product certification — we have similar go-to-market approaches with many joint channel partners that will benefit from our sales and marketing initiatives. We also have a great cultural fit and share a passion for developing technologies that continuously improve audiovisual experiences, to help people feel closer together even when they’re far apart,” says Aviv Ron, vice president of corporate development and strategy at Kramer.
Aurangzeb Khan, senior vice president of intelligent vision systems at Jabra, adds, “We engineered our PanaCast range to provide intelligent, secure and high-quality video solutions to users, no matter where they choose to work from. Combining PanaCast with Kramer’s wireless presentation solutions makes hybrid working and collaborating with colleagues easier than ever.”
