InfoComm 2013: Crestron AirMedia collaboration solution embraces BYOD trend13 June 2013
Crestron is showing its new AirMedia wireless HD presentation solution for small meeting rooms,at InfoComm 2013.
AirMedia is designed for small conference rooms and huddle rooms that don’t have an AV system. Using AirMedia, anyone can walk into a room, connect to the existing display over Wi-Fi, and wirelessly present HD content from their smartphone, tablet, or laptop.
“AirMedia turns any room or space into a productive environment by enabling small groups to connect their personal devices wirelessly to the room display and begin collaborating immediately,” said Fred Bargetzi, Crestron VP of Technology. “For IT staff, a simple Ethernet connection from the AirMedia console to the LAN is all that’s needed and your room is ready to go. No additional software, AV equipment or control system is needed.”
Content from up to four devices can be shown simultaneously on one room display.
Users can connect to AirMedia in three ways. Using a laptop, enter the web address displayed on the splash screen to begin a presentation; mobile device users can connect using a free downloadable app; and in large enterprise applications, the IT department can push the client executable file to all laptops simultaneously via the network.
AirMedia allows up to 32 users to connect at the same time in the same room.
While AirMedia can be used standalone, it also integrates with Crestron DigitalMedia.
