Looking at the back end of the system, VIA Site Management (VSM) has also been revamped to offer a new user experience, with a lot of great additions for easier and faster VIA device configuration and supervision. Much focus has been put on redesigning the Digital Signage module which now offers simple scheduling of dynamic content, intuitive drag and drop usage, and a more visual orientation – guiding the user through the experience, highlighting key steps and interactivity points.
Introducing VIA GO2
In addition to the VIA 3.0 software updates, Kramer has also just launched VIA GO2, replacing its existing VIA GO. The ultra-compact VIA GO2 packs a powerful 4K HDMI output and secure content sharing, and is the smallest wireless presentation device available, perfect for hidden installation behind displays.
Easy wireless sharing is enabled from any device by using either the VIA app, a web browser such as Chrome or FireFox, or simply using standard Miracast or Airplay protocols, directly from the built-in wireless capabilities of the VIA device.
The move to VIA Site Management on Cloud
Configuration and connectivity for all device and platform management has also been moved to the cloud with the arrival of VSM on Cloud. This maintains the same great features of being able to monitor and manage multiple VIA devices simultaneously from a central location. No VPN is required when having devices spread over different physical locations or different networks worldwide. The move from a server to the cloud removes the need to host a local server in the customer’s data centre and is a more cost-effective option for businesses.
