In today’s digital era, simplicity is better. We often find ourselves choosing among countless options looking for ways to be more efficient. At the end of the day, we all want to choose whatever gadget, application or system that will ultimately make life easier. Too many options do not make it easy nowadays – budget, availability, and functionality – are variables that always come into play.
When it comes to business meetings and conferences, this is not an exception. Time saving and ease have become a must. Crestron an automation and controls solutions manufacturer, recently released an amazing tabletop device that enables audio and video conferencing like never before. It is also a BYOD multimedia presentation and web collaboration tool all in one easy-to-use console, eliminating the need of a tablet in the room or having to bring your own laptop. It also features a full open SIP conferencing high-end speakerphone and microphones allowing you to make calls directly from it.
The Crestron Mercury meeting solution is one of the most complete, easy to use, easy to deploy and manage devices available. It can be used with the Bluetooth audio option paired with a mobile, soft phone, video conferencing solution or UC service. Unlike most other solutions, which lock you to just one platform, this device is compatible with most UC service providers such as Zoom Rooms, Skype for Business, Cisco WebEx, GotoMeeting and Slack.
Crestron have also released a dedicated ZOOM firmware running the Zoom interface directly on the display, offering a perfect solution for meeting presentations, video conferencing and collaboration. With the Mercury running Zoom’s feature rich Zoom Rooms software, backed up with its high-performance speaker (which we think is possibly the best on the market for something this size) and 4 professional microphones for 360-degree coverage, it makes it a formidable combination for small to medium-sized meeting rooms. As if it wasn’t easy enough to deploy, we’ve put together a Zoom Room hardware bundle here for you so you don’t have to worry about forgetting anything!
Crestron Mercury transforms meeting rooms into highly effective collaboration spaces. It is priced to meet tight huddle room budgets and will definitely make meetings simpler for the day-to-day users…and the IT guys will appreciate it too.
