Crestron said they have started shipping their Mercury tabletop meeting and collaboration system. Mercury is basically a conferencing phone with a built-in Crestron AirMedia wireless presentation gateway. So, you can use it to collaborate with users in far-sites or locally by using it as a presentation gateway for wireless content. Mercury can make calls from either a mobile device (cloud-codec) or via any standard SIP phone system and it includes both built-in mice and speakers — so it acts just like a speaker-phone.
The collaboration parts of Crestron Mercury from a laptop or dedicated in-room PC can be done using any soft phone, or web conferencing or UC application, such as Skype for Business, Cisco WebEx, GotoMeeting or Slack.
The built-in occupancy sensor on Crestron Mercury enables facility managers to collect usage data to drive efficient room utilization and Crestron Mercury includes enterprise security standards.
Available collaboration spaces in multiple locations equipped with Mercury can be located via the built-in Crestron PinPoint proximity beacon on each console. And, Mercury includes integration with Microsoft Exchange enabling users to reserve a room using Mercury’s on-screen calendar.
