Crestron is a brand that you may not know readily by name, but one you have likely encountered somewhere without realizing it. They provide electronic controls systems, from lights to sound to temperature controls for luxury homes, digital screens and speakers for conference rooms, and digital signs and retail displays. Crestron’s success comes from their commitment to network security, which is how they’ve won over some high profile clients.
The advent of smart security technology means that you can keep your property safe, while also being able to open and close your home with a push of a button. Thanks to this increase in technology, you have improved control, so if you want to open your door at a specific time (perhaps to let in your housekeeper or the dog walker), you can do so without having to worry about leaving spare keys lying around.
So why is it that a dedicated conference room touchscreen is better than a store bought wireless tablet when there are so many seemingly great, versatile options on the market? Here are a few reasons why I believe you should forgo the iPads, the Surfaces, and the Galaxy Tabs for a touchscreen that will serve a specific function just for that room.
In a previous post, I talked about some of the issues that arise when it comes to scheduling a meeting in a huddle or conference room, so today I want to highlight a product that has made our huddle rooms more efficient and perform at the highest level. The Crestron Mercury is a product that we use in our own office, and it’s been a standout for us in our huddle rooms.
If you’ve ever found yourself scrambling to find the appropriate adapter or cable five minutes before your presentation, then you understand the stress and frustration it can cause. For this reason, along with many others, wireless presentation systems are becoming more and more popular. But which one is right for you? Today I am going to review Crestron’s AirMedia AM-200 and Barco’s wePresent WiCS-2100 to see how they compare.
We have a problem people. Too often when we need to use a conference room or meeting space, we either can’t find an available room or the room we booked has been pirated by another group. Have you experienced this issue at your workplace?
