Crestron now shipping Mercury collaboration solution20 April 2017
Crestron is now shipping the Crestron Mercury, a meeting and collaboration solution that combines conferencing and collaboration features with the fast, secure cloud provisioning and management required by IT managers.
“Mercury addresses all the challenges that arise as more meetings involve remote participants with disparate applications running on personal devices, rather than in local, dedicated rooms with installed hardware,” said Ted Colton, VP of UC strategy at Crestron. “It provides everything needed for conference calls, BYOD presentations, and web collaboration in a single console, while making it easy, secure, and cost effective for businesses to deploy and manage the technology across an enterprise.”
Mercury enables users to securely present content wirelessly on the room display from a laptop, smartphone, or tablet using the built-in Crestron AirMedia wireless presentation gateway.
Knowledge workers can collaborate with colleagues via Crestron Mercury from a laptop or dedicated in-room PC using any soft phone, or web conferencing or UC application, such as Skype for Business, Cisco WebEx, GotoMeeting, or Slack.
The built-in occupancy sensor on Crestron Mercury enables facility managers to collect usage data to drive efficient room utilisation, and it also meets the latest enterprise security standards.
