Crestron UC and collaboration solutions come in several forms, but all bring a consistent user experience, regardless of the type of space in which they’re deployed. That means more uptime and less strain on your support resources.

Wireless Presentation Made Easy
Content sharing enhances communication, collaboration, and creativity, helping your organization be more efficient and productive. Crestron AirMedia 2.0 wireless presentation technology makes it easy. Meeting participants can sit or stand anywhere in a room or space and securely connect their laptops and smart devices to the display, regardless of OS. AirMedia 2.0 is built into the Crestron Flex M100 and is also available in standalone devices that enable you to transform lobbies, lounges, and other open spaces into productive meeting spaces. Beyond presentation capabilities, all AirMedia 2.0 devices support Appspace® software for digital signage needs, and connect to popular calendaring systems to show space availability.
Scheduling Where You Need It
The modern workplace is fast-paced, flexible, and dispersed. You need a scheduling platform that not only keeps up with you, but makes everyone more efficient, connected, and collaborative across all spaces while meeting your booking requirements. Crestron makes it simple and convenient to locate and book available meeting spaces from wherever you are; on your mobile, outside the room, or inside the room. The system directly connects to Microsoft Exchange, Office 365, and G Suite™ software, so people can book rooms on the spot. And the system is intelligent enough to return rooms to inventory when employees no-show, thereby optimizing usage. When spaces aren’t in use, you can even repurpose the displays for digital signage via Appspace.
