Conference Room Presentation Instructions (How to Use Kramer VIA Go) - Alternate Instructions

 

Some conference rooms and classrooms around the district have been equipped with Kramer VIA Go casting devices. These devices allow many platforms (Windows, macOS, iOS, Android) to cast their screens through the projector. In some cases, the device will also allow for multiple screens to be viewed at one time. In order to connect to these devices please follow the instructions below.

  1. Make sure the Kramer device is turned on. If you are just turning it on it takes a few minutes to boot. Once booted you should see a screen that shows a "Room Name".

  2. Now, on your computer, open a web browser (Chrome, Edge, Safari, etc) and type in the "Room Name" displayed on the screen that is being projected to into the URL bar and click your return key. NOTE: If the Kramer VIA app is present on the computer or device please see instructions for computers/devices with the app installed for connecting.

  1. You should be taken to a web page that looks similar to this one below. You have two options, "Run VIA" or "Install VIA". For this scenario, we will click on "Run VIA". Upon clicking you should notice you have a download beginning. 

  1. Once the download has completed you will click on it to open the app. NOTE: These images are based on using the Chrome web browser. If you use a different browser your download may be located in a different folder. If you do not see the download, as it is pictured below, check your downloads folder.

  1. Upon clicking on the downloaded file, a window should open like the one below. Look back up at the screen where you got the original "Room Name" from and enter that in the first box. In the "Nick Name" box you can enter your name. Once you have both of those items filled in, click on the "Login" button below them.

  1. After clicking the Login button, you should see the same window however there will be a new box that is asking for a code. The code should be listed on the same screen as the "Room Name" and be 4 digits. Enter it in the code box and click the Login button again.

  1. The Kramer VIA presenter toolbar should appear. Once you see that you can "X" out of the web browser and start casting from your desktop screen. This is done by simply clicking on the middle button labeled "Present". This toolbar can be minimized or moved, depending on your personal preferences.

  1. Finally, when your presentation is complete or if you want to allow others to present, you can click the "Stop Presenting" button.
