Crestron has announced its planned acquisition of the intelligent video technology developed by 1 Beyond. The integration of this technology will strengthen the Crestron ecosystem and core competency in videoconferencing, AV, and control and automation for collaboration rooms of all sizes, styles, and purposes.
“To enable productive and effective hybrid meetings, the modern workplace requires technology that provides an equitable experience between the in-room participants and the remote participants,” said Crestron president and CEO Dan Feldstein. “Intelligent video should be pervasive in the workplace, expanding the benefits from the large unique spaces to more mainstream collaboration rooms, and by integrating 1 Beyond products into our portfolio, Crestron is uniquely positioned to make that a reality.”
1 Beyond CTO Rony Sebok, who will be joining Crestron as director of intelligent video, added: “1 Beyond developed an innovation engine including uniquely designed intelligent cameras and automated video systems that will complement and strengthen Crestron’s core hardware and software technologies in AV, control, lighting, and UC.”
1 Beyond products have a loyal following, including many experienced Crestron integrators. The 1 Beyond product line offers technologies that are scalable and integrate naturally into Crestron’s existing product roadmap for room automation and collaboration solutions.
“With the additional expertise and extensive resources of Crestron behind it, we see the 1 Beyond technology becoming the foundation for future camera and intelligent video solutions that will drive the industry forward,” concluded Feldstein.
