Crestron issues update on Connected initiative

Crestron has published an updated list of partners involved in its Crestron Connected program following InfoComm 2012.

The Crestron Connected initiative, which embeds Crestron’s control platforms in third party hardware has gained fair traction at this year’s InfoComm with a number of integrated partners showcasing their Crestron Connected devices.

It allows for native plug-and-play support for any device that has Crestron embedded within it, providing the framework for a future distributed cloud-based control system. The 46-inch LDT462V from Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America is the first flat panel display to join the initiative.

“Adoption of Crestron Connected has exceeded expectations,” says Robin van Meeuwen, VP of sales and marketing at Crestron International.

The Crestron technology has also been adopted by the following Integrated Partners: Canon, Cisco/Tandberg, Cyber Touch, Cyron Lighting, Lencore, Marshall Furniture, Matrox, Middle Atlantic, Optoma, Panasonic, Polycom, Powersoft, Revo Labs, Sony, Surge X, Tecom, Valens, VFI, Wolf Vision, and several others.

“We've had incredibly positive feedback to the Crestron Connected initiative,” adds Robin. “We are receiving lots of interest from manufacturers to embed the technology. “
