Crestron Expands Its Digital Workplace Portfolio
Crestron Electronics announced the largest expansion of the Crestron Digital Workplace portfolio Tuesday. With a range of hybrid meeting solutions across the enterprise, Crestron introduces Crestron Desk Q and Crestron Desk Touch for desk scheduling, Crestron Flex Pods, a scalable tabletop wireless microphone and speaker platform, and the Crestron Videobar 70, an all-in-one collaboration bar for Microsoft Teams Rooms, Zoom Rooms, and BYOD meeting spaces.
Crestron Desk Q and Crestron Desk Touch are additions to the existing Crestron scheduling solutions. A simple desk scheduling experience facilitates higher adoption and utilization of the tool, resulting in a more welcoming and productive office environment for workers. The compact form factor of the Desk Q with QR-code-based reservations is designed for community workstations, hot desks, and hoteling. At the same time, the touch interface of Desk Touch is ideal for semi-private offices, cubicles, and even stand-up spaces.
Crestron Flex Pods tabletop wireless audio solutions are a new addition to the Crestron Flex line, providing organizations with more choice in the microphone and speaker category. The Crestron Flex Pods Hub is a wireless receiver that is connected to the room UC device and communicates wirelessly with multiple (up to four) Crestron Flex Pods that can be placed throughout the room. Crestron Flex Pods can be deployed as part of a Crestron Flex or AirMedia Wireless Collaboration Kit or standalone to seamlessly integrate with existing Crestron Flex C-Kits, AirMedia Receivers, or other BYOD solutions.
Crestron Videobar 70 is an all-in-one collaboration bar that delivers a stellar meeting experience for Microsoft Teams, Zoom Rooms, and any BYOD service and is designed to provide a premium audiovisual experience for medium to large meeting rooms. The form factor includes built-in UC computing and intelligent features that capture participants. Four cameras work together to crop for the best image intelligently, ensuring the video captured is always a clear, well-framed view of the person speaking, even at 30 feet.
