Crestron has added to its line of Unified Communications (UC) tabletop conferencing technology solutions with the Crestron Flex MX.
The first product to offer both native and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) capability, Crestoron says the Flex MX will completely transform the way businesses provide video conferencing by providing people with the flexibility to connect with anyone on any platform from any space.
“Our focus has always been on delivering innovations that simplify workflows and help people be more productive,” said Ranjan Singh, executive vice president, product and technology, Crestron. “Collaboration is key to a successful workplace, so it only makes sense that workplace technology be collaborative as well.”

Crestron Flex MX offers organisations the flexibility to run native Microsoft Teams (UC-MX150-T) or Zoom Rooms (UC-MX150-Z) software, or seamlessly switch to BYOD mode for all other conferencing software. This eliminates concerns that a meeting room will not support a user’s call. Additionally, Flex MX simplifies connection to the room display, requiring just a single cable. Other key features include HDMI and USB connectivity for content sharing and video conferencing; an intelligent camera with a 150° field of vision; and 360° quad microphone array.
“The Crestron Flex Series, and specifically the new Flex MX models, eliminates one of the major impediments to smooth and productive meetings – attendees using different UC platforms,” said Joe Sarrasin, director of strategy, UC, Crestron. “The Crestron Flex Series is the only product line on the market that enables people to work together, regardless of location or web collaboration application, and this is the definition of the future of the workplace.”
Crestron will be hosting a live demonstration of the Flex MX conferencing device on Wednesday, May 6 at 5pm CEST (4pm BST). No Jitter will be hosting a webinar with Crestron and industry analysts to discuss the new features in real time. Those interested may sign-up here.
