To simplify management and increase adaptability, ViewSonic has developed myViewBoard Manager, a web-based management and remote control platform for ViewSonic displays. This partnership enables Crestron’s customers to adopt and manage ViewSonic’s display solutions, such as the features and functionality of the IFP and CDE series, and meeting the diverse requirements of modern work environments. Simultaneously, for ViewSonic customers, this collaboration enhances the utility of their existing IFP62 series and CDE30 series. It enables seamless incorporation into centralized control systems and ensures improved compatibility with various devices from different brands, all supported by Crestron’s platform, says ViewSonic.
Event hosts and presenters can manage their presentation environment using the web-based platform provided by the Crestron XiO Cloud platform or LAN control platform. This includes switching signals/input sources, adjusting image size and audio volume, or broadcasting public messages, particularly beneficial in large forum spaces with multiple displays. Moreover, the adoption of the XiO Cloud remote management feature allows IT administrators to monitor device status from one location, minimizing downtime and streamlining troubleshooting and maintenance processes.
The initial phase of the partnership focuses on integrating ViewSonic’s ViewBoard IFP62 series and CDE30 series, which are widely acclaimed in business environments for facilitating collaborative sessions, says ViewSonic. The company plans to encompass a broader range of its visual solutions in different professional settings to strengthen unified communication capabilities.
