Building on the excellent market reception of its K-Touch system, Kramer
Electronics is pleased to introduce the K-Touch 2.0.0, K-Touch Builder version
2.0.0 that adds many new features and apps compatible with these new

The most important improvement is that now the Android app supports the
same features as the iOS app, including improved variables and improved multi-
state images. Since the entire system is cloud based, you don’t need to do
anything special to enjoy the improvements.


• Variables – For K-Touch power-users, variables make building complex
controls simpler. Almost any aspect of a remote can be controlled by a variable.
• Multi-State Images – Buttons and links now have three appearance states:
default, pressed, and selected. Make your user interface more interesting and
more interactive. The graphics in the three main themes have all been updated
with “pressed’ states, and activity and source buttons also have “selected’
• New Top Drawer – Top Drawers work as ‘pinned’ (static) drawers, since the
gesture to open and close a Drawer conflicts with the gesture for iOS’
Notification Center Second Multi-State Deselect Group – Multi-state images now
support a second ‘deselect’ group, allowing for two sets of source/activity to
interact with one another without using variables to do so. One example is in
the default handset templates, where there is a set of activity buttons on the
home page, and another in a Drawer. Now, when you press ‘Watch Movie’ in
one place, it is selected in both.
• URL Widget Refresh – URL widget views now refresh at a user-defined
interval. This is particularly useful with static pages with content that changes
• Wake-on-LAN (WoL) Action – WoL is now an Action object. Add the WoL
object to a macro on a button or a link or in a panel entrance for much better
control of WoL devices.
• UPnP Auto-discovery – Automatic discovery of some UPnP devices is now
• Rebuilt URL Scheme with Linking – Launch K-Touch and open the remote to
a specific Page and Panel using nothing more than a URL. In addition, the ‘Back’
button now supports external applications, so if some other app calls K-Touch,
the ‘Back’ button returns the user to the external application.
• Builder Handset Full-Resolution Grid – The handset layout grid can now be
as fine as you need. Make your grid the same size as the number of pixels in the
handset. Position buttons and other elements down to the pixel, then use the
new alignment tools to line them up.
• Builder Multi-Select – Select multiple objects and edit their attributes, move,
or align them – all at once. Drag- or shift-select a series of buttons and set all
their widths at the same time, assign labels, or nudge them with the arrow
• Gateway IP Tracking – Auto-discovered gateway IP addresses are tracked
so they can move and still work.
