Video Conferencing and Web Collaboration
Have you ever had to huddle around a laptop to view a presentation, or been sat right next to a colleague on a GoToMeeting, WebEx, Skype or any personal conferencing platform? With Crestron Mercury, these situations are no longer a problem:
Turn any area into a videoconference room by connecting your laptop to Mercury and running your chosen video conferencing application.
Once connected, enjoy enhanced audio and a high definition view of the room via the included USB camera.
Connect your laptop to the HDMI input on Mercury and ensure everyone in the room can view the presentation and videoconference comfortably.
BYOD Multimedia Presentation
Mercury comes equipped with a HDMI output to provide connectivity to a display device; enabling presentations from a whole host of BYOD sources.

Mercury’s HDMI input enables any AV source to be connected to present full-motion 1080p60 video on the local display with high-fidelity audio played through Mercury’s powerful inbuilt speaker system
With 360-degree quad microphones, conversation can be captured from every seat around the table. There is no compromise on audio quality with Mercury’s high-powered, full-range speaker system, producing clear, crisp audio for both voice and program material. Furthermore, TrueVoice AEC technology from Limes Audio delivers full-duplex performance without echo or noise. These elements along with Mercury’s advanced design aid natural and fluid meeting experiences.

Management and Security
As an enterprise-grade appliance, Mercury is perfect for mass deployment in any sized facility. With cloud-based provisioning you can configure your network ahead of hardware delivery, with automatic updates following installation. Devices can be configured individually or via a web browser.
Advanced security features include 802.1x authentication, Active Directory credential management, LDAP directory management, SRTP, SSH, TLS, and HTTPS. Dual LAN ports allow VoIP or AirMedia traffic to be isolated on a secondary network, and 802.3at PoE+ compatibility enables Mercury to be powered through its primary LAN connection.
Voice Calling & Audio Conferencing

Corporate directory access (LDAP) integration provides one-touch dialling from your centrally managed directory.
Bluetooth enabled phones appear automatically on the touch screen and once paired, Mercury turns your device into a room conference system with the ability to start and stop calls, adjust volume and mute the call from the high definition 7” touch screen.
Run softphone applications from your laptop on Mercury. To take full advantage of the echo-free high quality audio, simply connect your laptop to the USB port.

**When used without any microphone pods connected, the system may be powered using either PoE+ or the included power pack (model PW-2420RU). If one or two mic pods are connected, the system MUST be powered using the power pack. PoE+ cannot be used to power the system if any mic pods are connected. When using PoE+, make sure the network switch supports PoE+ (802.3at Type 2). Regular PoE (802.3af or 802.3at Type 1) cannot be used to power the system. Crestron recommends using the CEN-SWPOE-16 16-port switch, which supports PoE+. Please be aware, the CEN-SW-POE-5 5-port switch does NOT support PoE+ and cannot be used to power the system.
