“We aim to be the ultimate partner for organizations seeking complete room solutions, company-wide workplace platforms, or both,” said Brad Hintze, Crestron EVP Global Marketing. “Our goal is to provide a seamless and consistent experience across every room in the workplace, regardless of its size or function. We strive to be the driving force behind workplace technology solutions that make a tangible difference in how people work. The new products in the Crestron portfolio make this happen.”

Hybrid meetings have become essential for businesses to operate. Crestron provides enterprises with the tools to enable effective audio and video collaboration in every space, using powerful management tools.

  • Crestron Desk Q and Crestron Desk Touch are additions to the existing Crestron line of scheduling solutions. A simple, seamless desk scheduling experience facilitates higher adoption and utilization of the tool, resulting in a welcoming and productive office environment for workers. The compact form factor of the Desk Q with QR-code-based reservations is ideal for community workstations, hot desks and hoteling, while the touch interface of Desk Touch is ideal for semi-private offices, cubicles and even stand-up spaces. Desk Touch will ship in July,, and Desk Q will be available during Q4.
  • Crestron Flex Pods tabletop wireless audio solutions are an addition to the Crestron Flex line, providing organizations with more choices in the microphone and speaker category. Audio is a critical component of hybrid meetings; in-person participants must be able to hear remote participants clearly while ensuring their own audio is captured reliably. Today’s hybrid meetings require audio technology that is scalable and flexible with minimal setup time. Crestron Flex Pods provide a simplified approach for adding high-quality tabletop audio to meeting spaces, transforming a room to work as needed for each meeting, without being confined to fixed in-ceiling microphones or speakers. The Crestron Flex Pods Hub is a wireless receiver that is connected to the room UC device and communicates wirelessly with multiple (up to four) Crestron Flex Pods that can be placed throughout the room. Crestron Flex Pods can be deployed as part of a Crestron Flex or AirMedia Wireless Collaboration Kit or standalone to seamlessly integrate with existing Crestron Flex C-Kits, AirMedia Receivers, or other BYOD solutions. Creston Flex Pods will ship during the third quarter.
  • Crestron Videobar 70 is an all-in-one collaboration bar that delivers a stellar meeting experience for Microsoft Teams, Zoom Rooms and any BYOD service and is designed to provide a premium audiovisual experience for medium to large meeting rooms. The simple-to-deploy form factor includes built-in UC computing and intelligent features that capture participants. Four high-quality cameras work to crop for the best image, ensuring the video captured is clear and well-framed, even at 30 feet. The Crestron Videobar 70 gives customers an interface for meeting control in a refined form factor, while the Android OS makes it an easy plug-and-play deployment. Creston Videobar 70 will ship during the fourth quarter.

Every hybrid meeting space has the same fundamental needs – high-quality audio and video and an easy-to-use meeting interface. However, each space needs the right product to deliver an excellent experience.

Huddle spaces, boardrooms, training facilities, or auditoriums need specific solutions optimized for certain types of meetings or events. No matter the room size, conferencing platform, or supporting devices, Crestron Flex affords multiple products and form factors to deliver the best experience for the space with access to video conferencing, presentation, and intelligent room control.
