Founded in 1972, Crestron Electronics is a leading manufacturer of audio-visual automation / control systems, AV distribution systems, lighting control systems, building management systems, collaboration technologies, wireless presentation systems, and more. The company offers solutions for enterprises, educational institutions, government agencies, marine applications, and residential environments.
In 2013, Crestron entered the Unified Communications (UC) space when it released one of the first Lync® (eventually Skype® for Business /SfB) meeting room solutions. Today, the company’s Crestron Flex product line includes a range of audio, video, user interface, and control solutions designed to work natively with leading UC solutions, including those from Microsoft, Zoom, and others.
In late May 2020, Crestron announced the Crestron Flex R-Series, a line of turnkey, cart-based, rapid-deployment UC solutions available for Microsoft Teams® and Zoom Rooms™ software.
In late June 2020, Crestron commissioned the Recon Research (RR) test team to perform an independent, third-party assessment of the Crestron UC-FCMX-T, a Flex R-Series system for Microsoft Teams with support for BYOD environments. This document contains the results of our hands-on testing.
