Crestron Electronics, a global leader in workplace collaboration technology, today announces the AirMedia® Connect Adaptor, a one-touch, plug-and-play wireless presentation solution for wireless conferencing. As Microsoft announced at their Enterprise Connect 2023 keynote, Crestron and Microsoft will launch an AirMedia collaboration bundle for Microsoft Teams® software that will bring BYOD and Microsoft Teams meetings to even more spaces. The AirMedia Connect Adaptor is the only dongle optimized by Microsoft for wireless collaboration, eliminating the need for an application to present and conference, and expanding and simplifying BYOD meeting solutions.
“Whether you’re in a huddle room, lounge, or mixed-use room, effective hybrid work requires the ability to easily present and conference without jumping through hoops,” said Lauren Simmen, director of commercial product marketing for Crestron. “The plug-and-play AirMedia Connect Adaptor allows users to collaborate more freely using their personal devices and any outfitted display to riff on an impromptu brainstorm or deliver a formal business presentation.”
Enabling Seamless BYOD Collaboration in Any Type of Room
BYOD is a leading request of organizations that want a simple way to bring meeting capabilities to smaller or non-traditional collaboration spaces where they may not want to deploy full third-party collaboration infrastructure. The AirMedia Connect Adaptor works with various platforms for added flexibility, but the Microsoft Teams software variation adds even more convenience for organizations that have chosen a standard meeting platform. With the press of a button, users can instantly join virtual meeting participants using their device of choice while taking advantage of the high-quality audio and video in-room peripherals. When used for wireless presentation, the AirMedia Connect Adaptor allows for content transmission in up to 4K/30p, so users never have to worry that their image or video quality will suffer. Even more, all content transmitted utilizes encryption, so guests won’t have to worry about using new networks, and hosts won’t have to worry about unwanted intrusions.
