Press release date: April 17, 2017

Crestron Mercury™ delivers everything needed for successful meetings and collaboration combined with secure cloud provisioning and management.

Crestron, the global leader in commercial AV and meeting room technology, announced today it is now shipping Crestron Mercury, the most complete, easy to use, easy to deploy and manage tabletop meeting and collaboration system. The sleek, all-in-one console is all that’s needed to transform any space into highly effective collaboration space. It combines all the must-have conferencing and collaboration features employees need, along with the fast, secure cloud provisioning and management required by IT managers.

“Mercury addresses all the challenges that arise as more meetings involve remote participants with disparate applications running on personal devices, rather than in local, dedicated rooms with installed hardware,” said Ted Colton, VP of UC Strategy at Crestron. “It provides everything needed for conference calls, BYOD presentations, and web collaboration in a single console, while making it easy, secure, and cost effective for businesses to deploy and manage the technology across an enterprise.”

Present

Mercury enables users to instantly and securely present content wirelessly on the room display from a laptop, smartphone, or tablet using the built-in Crestron AirMedia® wireless presentation gateway.

Call

With Mercury, it’s easy to make exceptional sounding phone calls from mobile devices or standard SIP phone systems using the built-in, precision-engineered speaker and microphones.

Collaborate

Knowledge workers can easily collaborate with colleagues via Crestron Mercury from a laptop or dedicated in-room PC using any soft phone, or web conferencing or UC application, such as Skype® for Business, Cisco WebEx®, GotoMeeting®, or Slack®.

Measure and secure

The built-in occupancy sensor on Crestron Mercury enables facility managers to collect usage data to drive efficient room utilization. And IT managers can rest easy knowing Crestron Mercury meets the latest enterprise security standards.
