Kramer Electronics, Ltd. is now showcasing at ISE 2017 an innovative software solution that creates easy-to-configure, fully-automated and green-friendly meeting room environments with minimal end-user intervention. The company is displaying its full range of products and solutions in Booth 1-F20 next to the Europa entrance.
Offered separately as an enhancement to Kramer products, the solution creates a series of actions based on a pre-defined event, or trigger, like plugging in a laptop, scheduling a meeting, or motion detection. These events can trigger actions such as turning on computers (via Wake-on-LAN) and turning on and off lights, projectors, displays, video sources, and HVAC.
By ensuring that lights and devices are automatically turned off, Kramer Maestro helps support a more environmentally-friendly workplace, and over time, saves organizations significant energy costs.
“Kramer Maestro’s cost value is providing low-maintenance, remotely- managed meeting spaces where end-users don’t have to fuss with remotes or touch pads – all they have to do is show up and connect or plug in,” said David Margolin, Corporate Marketing Director at Kramer. “This significantly reduces two of the most time-consuming responsibilities for AV and IT professionals – ongoing support and user training,” added Margolin.
Integrated with Kramer’s dynamic database of device drivers, there is no end to the types of actions and scenarios Maestro can execute in virtually any space. Maestro supports a variety of control formats, including RS-232, Ethernet, GPIO, relay, and IR. The solution is easy to configure and manage via a user-friendly, browser-based interface. Maestro can also be managed using Kramer Network, a powerful enterprise platform for remotely managing and monitoring AV installations.
