Crestron Announces Virtual In-Room Control Software that Streamlines the Deployment and Scaling of Enterprise Spaces

Crestron Electronics, a leader in workplace room control and automation, today announces the expansion of their room control portfolio with key enhancements to Crestron® VC-4 Virtual Control. A software-based control solution, VC-4 complements the industry-leading Crestron hardware-based control systems by offering a more scalable alternative with the same powerful functionality.

VC-4 expands the range of choices enterprise IT managers have for their in-room control platform, providing a scalable software control platform while maintaining support for existing hardware-based solutions. Capable of supporting up to 500 spaces on a single server, VC-4 enables mass deployment of customized or standardized configurations with the press of a button, delivering significant savings of time and labor costs while dramatically increasing the overall control platform lifecycle.

Swift and Secure Scalability
The explosion of hybrid work and the proliferating need for additional collaboration spaces has forced enterprise IT teams to configure more rooms than ever before. The purpose-built VC-4 software-based solution will accelerate deployment for this ever-expanding array of rooms. Crestron VC-4 enables IT specialists to design and configure a room’s UC, AV, and control solutions, save those configurations, and then automate them in a fraction of the time. This significantly cuts down on labor costs for common applications as VC-4 streamlines the custom configuration experience. Since it is integrated with standard programming languages, including C# for IT and SIMPL for AV professionals, it won’t require any new training to execute.
