K−Touch 3.2 Further Simplifies Installation and Makes the System Design Process More Efficient for Integrators
Kramer has released its latest software upgrade for the K−Touch Control Platform, further simplifying the system design process and reducing the time it takes to build advanced, user−friendly room control systems over Ethernet for lights, screens, sound, any AV equipment, HVAC, thermostats, and more.
K−Touch 3.2 saves time on both new installations and upgrades of existing installations with support for Kramer’s new FC−28 Ethernet Gateway.
Kramer FC−series I/O connectivity products allow non−Ethernet−based devices to be controlled over Ethernet. FC−28 has ten ports that include RS−232, GPIO, relays, and IR. Kramer RC−series button controllers can also be incorporated into any project to provide tactile operation.
K−Touch 3.2 also reduces configuration time with a new programming feature called “Global Macro.” Global Macro lets integrators program a generic room control function one time without having to rewrite it for each new room. It also shortens training time for designers just learning the system.
“This upgrade demonstrates our continued commitment to integrators to provide the most cost−effective and time−effective solution in the market for designing cutting−edge room control.” said Aviv Ron, Vice President of Business Development & Strategy at Kramer.
K−Touch Control Solutions are scalable to 100s of devices, multiple rooms and multiple sites, all controllable from either an iOS or Android touch screen.
Integrators can configure systems quickly with drag−and−drop functionality and simple coding. K−Touch provides access to an ever−growing library of 1000s of device drivers and dozens of programming modules (e.g., Apple TV, Foscam cameras, Vera™ Smarter Home Control products, Centralite Lighting, Phillips Hue, and iTunes). The platform includes Apple TV IP control, immersive full−screen mode and support for iPhone models, including iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
K−Touch is ideal for corporate environments, education facilities, entertainment venues, houses of worship, government agencies, and more.
With K−Touch, integrators can provide remote cloud−based support and updates to customers without having to be on−site. This translates to significant cost savings and higher ROI.
The platform is easy and quick to learn. Kramer offers a simple online training course that can be completed in just a few hours. An extensive support database is available online and includes tutorials, articles, videos, and sample project files with additional instructions on performing both simple and complex tasks.
New dealers can benefit from Kramer’s attractive K−Touch starter kit which allows them to immediately start selling and installing the platform.
