Orlando, FL – June 10, 2019 – At InfoComm® 2019, Crestron, a global leader in workplace technology, is debuting Crestron Mercury X, the latest evolution of its industry-leading tabletop meeting and collaboration solution. Crestron Mercury X connects to the front of the room with just a single cable. At the core of the new Crestron Flex M-Series MX models, Crestron Mercury X also offers the flexibility to run native software, including Microsoft Teams® and Zoom Rooms™, and BYOD on the same device. Crestron Mercury X, and all Crestron Mercury models, will also feature a more modern UI for a simpler user experience. Live demonstrations of Crestron Mercury X and the new UI are available at booth #1800, Orange County Convention Center.
“Our customers spoke and we listened,” said Joe Sarrasin, Technology Manager, Unified Communications at Crestron. “Crestron Mercury X and the redesigned UI are the latest products of the on-going evolution of Crestron Mercury. They were developed in direct response to requests for a simple ‘one-cable-to-table’ connection and a cleaner, simpler user experience.”
Simpler user experience
The redesigned UI will ship with all new Crestron Mercury units this summer. Currently installed devices can easily upgrade to the new UI via free firmware. The UI makes it easier for users to access what they need with more information on the home page and call screens, including room schedule, status, and availability.
Crestron Mercury is the most complete, easy-to-use, easy-to-deploy, and easy-to-manage tabletop meeting and collaboration system. The sleek, all-in-one console is all that’s needed to transform any space into a 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.
Crestron Flex UC solutions clear the way to more productive, stress-free days. Crestron Flex provides a simple, consistent user experience in all the places people work and meet. From desks to boardrooms, no more wasted time trying to get the technology to work. Crestron Flex delivers a native Microsoft Teams, Skype® for Business, and Zoom Rooms software experience, plus one-touch join.
Crestron is demonstrating Crestron Mercury X and the entire Flex UC platform at InfoComm 2019, booth #1800, June 12–14.
