More About Crestron Next
Crestron Next is not a replacement for the annual Crestron Masters events. This year’s Crestron Masters were held virtually and are expected to resume in 2021. The 2019 Crestron Masters events in Connecticut attracted more than 1,200 of the best Crestron programmers in the world.
Crestron recently announced its newest addition to the company’s line of unified communications conferencing technology, the Crestron Flex R-Series.
Crestron Flex R-Series is a mobile UC system “that brings collaboration where it’s needed most, closing the distance between remote teams wherever they may be,” according to the company announcement.
Crestron also recently announced the company is collaborating with remote work providers Logitech and Zoom to help merge work and home with an all-in-one videoconferencing, home control and unified communications experience.
The solution, dubbed Crestron HomeTime, is designed for working from home, remote learning and socializing. It’s a unification of Logitech’s MeetUp conference camera with the Crestron UC Engine that integrates with Crestron control to deliver the Zoom Rooms experience.
The high-end home solution merges videoconferencing, home control, and unified communications (UC) into a single system to allow clients to socialize, remote learn, and work from home.
