Crestron XiO Cloud

Making its North American debut and one of the stand out solutions on show was Crestron’s XiO Cloud, without doubt a future favourite for IT Managers. Based in the cloud, XiO Cloud is built on Microsoft Azure and enables organisations to instantly deploy, manage and evolve their whole Crestron estate.

XiO Cloud can be accessed from any web browser and has been proven to reduce installation times by up to 90%. From a central location, organisations can update millions of devices worldwide, be instantly alerted when there is a problem and understand their spaces better based on usage and reporting data.

With many of our customers already using Crestron solutions, XiO Cloud will be a welcome addition to their estates. It will enable our customers to manage and understand their spaces better; improving their return on investment.

Crestron Mercury

Crestron Mercury

Crestron used InfoComm 18 to announce that the award-winning Crestron Mercury, a Cinos favourite, is now compatible with the Huddly wide-angle USB camera. This new pairing provides an undistorted, ultra-wide viewing angle of all participants; making Mercury the perfect choice for a multitude of collaboration spaces and further raising the bar for the unified communications experience.

As well as demonstrating a native Zoom video conferencing experience via Mercury on-stand, Matthew also introduced Crestron SR, a co-development with Microsoft and Crestron to build the best-in-class room system for Skype for Business and soon, Microsoft Teams. Like Mercury and all other Crestron products, SR connects to XiO Cloud for easy deployment and management.
