Kramer teams up with Sony on AR driven teaching solution

A new partnership between Sony and Kramer will deliver a new education solution that combines Sony’s AR software with Kramer’s Control Solution that requires less hardware.

This education solution combines Kramer’s Control Solution and various other audio, video, and management products with Sony’s Edge presentation, visualisation and analytics suite (REA-C1000).

Aviv Ron, Vice President, Corporate Development and Strategy at Kramer, said: “The Sony-Kramer solution delivers cinematic presentations and lesson content in real-time. By digitising the classroom experience, a new learning style is created that gives those in the room and those at home the same great experience.”

Combining Kramer Control with Sony’s BRAVIA 4K professional displays allows the screen to become the control processor for all the AV devices in the room. There is also the option to move away from a centralised control processor by using the Kramer Brainware which can be installed on Sony’s BRAVIA range.

There is also the option to add features like handwriting extraction across multiple displays, PTZ auto-tracking, close-up by gesture features, Chromakey-less CG Overlay and real-time cropping, all through a single device.

Further key features include: Sony’s PTZ auto-tracking cameras that follow the speaker’s movements throughout the presentation to ensure they stay in focus and within frame throughout their presentation. Kramer Control Solution embedded on a tablet lets presenters move around the space freely and easily operate all equipment in the room via single user interface. Edge handwriting extraction feature ensures that any words and diagrams written on a white board or a blackboard remain in full view to the audience, no matter where the speaker is standing. Chromakey-less CG Overlay technology extracts the presenter’s image and overlays it onto any background image, animation, or video in real-time without the need for dedicated studio equipment or a specialist graphics operator. Focus Area Cropping allows one camera to show two different output images simultaneously and can be set to be shown as either a static or dynamic picture.
