Adaptable AV Ecosystem Provided by ViewSonic and Crestron
To simplify management and increase adaptability, ViewSonic has developed myViewBoard Manager, a web-based platform allowing quick and efficient centralized management and remote control of ViewSonics displays. This partnership enables Crestrons customers to swiftly adopt and manage ViewSonics display solutions, thereby enriching the choices of audiovisual solutions, incorporating the advanced features and functionality of the IFP and CDE series, and meeting the diverse requirements of modern work environments. Simultaneously, for ViewSonic customers, this collaboration enhances the utility of their existing IFP62 series and CDE30 series. It enables seamless incorporation into centralized control systems and ensures improved compatibility with various devices from different brands, all supported by Crestron’s platform.
The collaboration combines ViewSonic’s visual technology expertise and Crestron’s integration prowess. Event hosts and presenters can easily manage their presentation environment using the web-based platform provided by the Crestron XiO Cloud platform or LAN control platform. This includes switching signals/input sources, adjusting image size and audio volume, or broadcasting public messages, particularly beneficial in large forum spaces with multiple displays. Moreover, the adoption of the XiO Cloud remote management feature allows IT administrators to effortlessly monitor device status from one location, minimizing downtime and streamlining troubleshooting and maintenance processes.
The initial phase of the partnership focuses on integrating ViewSonic’s ViewBoard IFP62 series and CDE30 series, which are widely acclaimed in business environments for facilitating collaborative sessions. Looking ahead, there are plans to encompass a broader range of ViewSonic’s offerings in different professional settings to strengthen unified communication capabilities.
