Opening of new Crestron demo centre approaches28 May 2012
Activity at Crestron HQ is stepping up ahead of its grand opening of the design and experience centre in Cobham on the 13 June. The interactive showroom will launch with an open day for architects, integrators, housebuilders, consultants and end-users.
“Our HQ in Cobham is just a short hop from Junction 10 on the M25 and close to London,” said Phil Breitschadel, Crestron UK’s Sales Manager (pictured). With the new centre, we are offering an insight in the versatile range of automation and control solutions that contribute to cutting edge workspaces for businesses and luxurious living for homeowners,”
With the finishing touches being put on the new facility, Crestron has announced what visitors to the site can expect to find:
Guests will be immediately greeted by a DigitalMedia (DM) grandstand that details and demonstrates how Crestron’s network solution can power homes, offices, schools, hospitals and more, by combining AV, IT, security and environmental sources on to a single network.
DM display screens will demonstrate the system’s capabilities, including a selection of source switching..
Two further demo stations will showcase Capture-HD, a lecture recording and publishing device and the building management programmes, Fusion and RoomView. Fusion and RoomView are solutions for energy monitoring/management and room scheduling, AV bookings and remote diagnostics. Both are said to be scalable redundant architectures that fit seamlessly into both retrofit and new build projects.
Crestron’s range of commercial lighting products will also be on display in the showroom. Guests will also be able to view the residential DIN rail lighting components which combine with control pads.
In addition, the design centre will showcase Crestron’s range of touchpanels for both the residential and commercial settings. Among the models on show will be the 4SM range, a keypad for both home and commercial settings. The 4SM combines hard buttons and touchscreen functionality and will control a selection of the product demos at the new showroom.
Crestron HQ will also feature a working demo of the Sonnex system.
“The open day will provide an experience which aims to help customers understand the technology and how it is integral to what they do,” concluded Breitschadel. “It will also present dealers with a fantastic networking opportunity, bringing the Crestron experience in an interesting and innovative environment, showcasing solutions for every project and every budget.”
