Enterprise-grade network security
While other products provide just a wireless access point, exposing confidential content to potential security breaches, AirMedia 2.0 is a network-based wireless presentation technology that leverages the latest security protocols: 802.1x network access control; Active Directory® administrator authentication; AES-128 content encryption; and SSH, SSL, TLS, and HTTPS.
Cloud-based deployment and management

Using Crestron XiO Cloud™ service, a virtually unlimited number of AirMedia 2.0 devices can be deployed using common configuration, with remote management of administrator access rights, automated scheduling of firmware updates, and live status monitoring. This enables organizations to deploy thousands of endpoints simultaneously. Simply connect them to the network and they immediately work.
