Kramer Electronics, the specialized video, audio and signal technology business, has launched the K-Touch version 3.0 platform, a cloud-based solution for easily designing state-of-the-art, user-friendly BYOD room-control and automation eco-systems.

With K-Touch 3.0, integrators can design advanced control and automation for room elements such as lights, screens, sound, HVAC, thermostats, and any existing AV system. Designers can scale to over 100 devices in the cloud, all controllable from any tablet or mobile touch screen.

“K-Touch 3.0 is easy-to-use, easy-to-programme, incredibly scalable, and saves significant costs to both integrators and end users,’ said Aviv Ron, VP Business Development & Strategy at Kramer.

K-Touch 3.0 can be operated from any iOS or Android touch screen and is designed for a wide variety of AV environments, including corporate, education, entertainment, and houses of worship.

“The platform’s drag-and-drop design interface replaces expensive programming, is easy to learn, use and update and offers end users and system integrators alike a complete control and automation solution to even the most complex projects,’ said Ron.

K-Touch 3.0 includes pre-programmed, drag-and-drop modules for easy control system design. K-Touch modules represent a wide variety of media programs and devices commonly used in control and automation environments.

The system enables the control of room elements via Ethernet. With Kramer FC-series format converters or third-party controllers, room elements can be controlled via RS-232, GPIO, relays, or IR. Kramer RC-series button controllers can also be incorporated into any project to provide tactile operation.
