Crestron, a global leader in workplace technology, is enhancing the Crestron Flex platform with new intelligent video support from partners Jabra® and Huddly® to facilitate equitable and productive meetings both in-office or at-home. As businesses shift to a hybrid-first environment, where seamless collaboration between dispersed teams is a top priority, one of the biggest challenges has been ensuring every person in the meeting has an equal seat at the table.
Room systems with intelligent audio and video features, paired with the software innovations from meeting service providers, such as Microsoft Teams® and Zoom Rooms™ platforms, ensure all meeting participants can easily contribute and productively collaborate. The Crestron Flex platform ties it all together, providing purpose-built devices for every space and application, while delivering a consistent user experience throughout the organization. By standardizing on Crestron Flex, enterprises can deliver a successful meeting experience across the office, from the largest board room to rotating hot desks and huddle spaces, as well as easy scalability and support via Crestron XiO Cloud® remote management software.
“Among the many things we’ve learned as individuals continue to work remotely and return-to-office, is video conferencing and collaboration is at the center of the modern workplace. As we saw last week with Google’s real estate acquisition the corporate office is not going away, so we have to make the experiences better for everyone,” said Alex Peras, Director of UC & Corporate Development, Crestron. “Adding immediate support for Jabra and Huddly cameras helps build on our mission to ensure an immersive and equitable meeting experience, regardless of where participants join from.”
