Crestron Debuts AirMedia 2.0 Wireless Presentation Technology

Amsterdam, The Netherlands – February 5, 2018 – Crestron, a global leader in enterprise control and automation technology, announced today it will debut AirMedia 2.0, the next generation of its AirMedia wireless presentation technology at ISE 2018. Built into popular Crestron presentation solutions, including Crestron Mercury®, AirMedia 2.0 delivers the fastest, easiest, most manageable, and secure wireless presentation solution. Crestron is demonstrating AirMedia 2.0 in Hall-2, Stand 2-C20 at ISE 2018, 6 – 9 February, 2018.

AirMedia 2.0 frees people to sit or stand anywhere in the room or space and easily connect their smart devices and laptops to the room display, regardless of operating system. No more wires or dongles cluttering the table. In fact, you don’t even need a table.

“AirMedia 2.0 is the only enterprise-grade wireless presentation solution out there. It supports standard network security protocols and has the lowest latency and bandwidth,” said Fred Bargetzi, Crestron CTO. “It supports Windows®, Mac® OS, iOS®, and Android™ mirroring without Bonjour®, and it can be deployed and managed from the cloud with Crestron XiO Cloud.”

All the advantages of a network-based appliance

While other products provide just a wireless access point, exposing confidential content to potential security breaches, AirMedia 2.0 is a network-based wireless presentation technology that leverages the latest security protocols: 802.1x network access control; Active Directory® user authentication; AES-128 content encryption; and SSH, SSL, TLS, and HTTPS.

Additionally, most people leave meetings without disconnecting their device from the wireless gateway. As a result, private or sensitive information is still visible on the display when the next group of people enters the room. AirMedia automatically disconnects devices from the wireless gateway to safeguard sensitive content.

Consistent user experience in every room and space

With AirMedia 2.0, there’s no more wasting valuable time figuring out how to get the technology in the room or space to work. With a consistent, simple, and intuitive user experience from the network-deployed app, guest app, or native device app, all you have to do is show up and start presenting.

Managed on the network

AirMedia 2.0 is a network-based appliance that can be deployed, configured, and managed from the cloud. Using Crestron XiO Cloud or the built-in web tool, the mobile app can be silently deployed to laptops and smart devices across the enterprise, and user access rights and firmware updates can be remotely managed.

Built into popular Crestron presentation solutions

AirMedia 2.0 technology is built into: DMPS3-4K-350-C, ideal for multi-source presentation and video conferencing rooms with dual displays; DMPS3-4K-250-C, a perfect fit for multi-source rooms with just a single display; Crestron Mercury for single source, single display rooms; and Crestron FreeForm (CCS-F-2) for open spaces.
