Crestron is a privately held company that develops, manufacturers, and markets automation, collaboration, and meeting room AV technology solutions. The company’s solutions are installed in Fortune 500 corporations, schools and universities, government agencies, and premium homes.
Crestron offers a broad and diverse range of audio-visual products, including audio solutions, control system hardware and software, wireless expanders and gateways, control surfaces (touch screens / remotes), cables and connectors, lighting and environment solutions, motorized shades and drapery systems, video switchers and processors, and workplace solutions (video bars, sound bars, phones, wireless presentation systems, and more).
Like many of its peers, Crestron has experienced Covid-related supply-chain issues. However, Crestron is now quoting 12 – 18 month lead times on some of its most popular products, including the UC Engine and DM NVX products. This situation has sent channel partners and end-users scrambling to source the Crestron devices they need for future projects.
