New technologies offered through Crestron take AV control and room automation to another level.  Let’s take a look at the latest and greatest solutions from Crestron.


 Crestron Mercury

Combining unified communications (UC) and audio video control capabilities, the Crestron Mercury proves to be a powerful collaboration platform.  Mercury supports Bluetooth integration for smart devices, as well as its own SIP conference phone to make calls.  Digital AirMedia is also built-in to Mercury, allowing users to share their content to those in the room without HDMI.

Mercury integrates with Microsoft Exchange and Fusion to automate room scheduling.  The built-in graphics engine allows organizers to see schedules in every room and to add or modify their own meetings.  Meetings retain scheduling through Microsoft Outlook, Crestron Scheduling Panels or from the Mercury itself.


Crestron AirMedia 2.0

Like the original AirMedia, Crestron’s AirMedia 2.0 delivers quality wireless screen presentations for meeting spaces.  Improvements on the original version entail a friendlier user interface, less bandwidth consumption and lower latency.  Another improvement is the advanced security features including Active Directory user authentication, AES-128 encryption, SSH, SSL, TLS and HTTPS.
