Kramer Offers Free Zignage Digital Signage Platform With VIA Connect


List of value-adds grows for multi-function collaboration device

Jerusalem, Israel, June 11, 2019 — Kramer Electronics today announced a partnership with digital signage specialist Zignage – a move that delivers enhanced functionality and additional value to Kramer’s powerful VIA Connect (PLUS or PRO – please confirm) platform.

The latest alignment with Zignage further reinforces Kramer’s VIA Connect line as a versatile, all-in-one AV solution following the integration of popular software and video collaboration offerings by Blue Jeans, Zoom, and Logitech.
Zignage specializes in flexible and robust digital signage software solutions. By leveraging the reliability of a Linux-based platform and the scalability of open-source standards, Zignage is at the forefront of modular, customizable, and interactive innovation for digital signage applications.
Kramer’s award-winning VIA line consists of hardware and software-based presentation and collaboration solutions enabling participants to instantly share and collaborate using any BYOD laptop or mobile device.
The new partnership enables the quick creation of free “self-managed” digital signage applications directly from the Kramer VIA Connect device; users can turn any idle display into an inspiring welcome screen, company messaging, advertising, and more. The ability to optimize displays not in use for UC or presentations provides more tools for internal and external communications while ensuring return on investment (RoI). Users who require more demanding display management can purchase a license for expanded features.

David Margolin, VP Marketing for Kramer, said: “Zignage are a company that share Kramer’s focus of bringing AV further into the IT realm. This partnership brings a free, inclusive digital signage suite to Kramer’s powerful VIA Connect (PLUS/PRO – please check) platform, giving users the ability to create basic digital signage applications alongside the wealth of collaboration functions at the touch of a button…or screen. We are looking forward to providing visitors to our Kramer booth at InfoComm, where we will be providing full VIA Connect demonstrations of the power of this versatile, powerful, yet easy-to-use device.”

Vadim Kern, COO at Zignage, added: “Kramer are one of the most respected names in pro AV and we are delighted with this alignment. Zignage brings a wealth of powerful, creative options to VIA Connect users wishing to get the best from their displays during ‘downtime’.”
