Imago subsidiary to distribute Crestron RL in UK and France

Crestron has announced that specialist distributor and wholly owned subsidiary of Imago Group plc, Video Corporation will be distributing Crestron RL, a group collaboration system for use with Microsoft Lync 2013, in both the UK and France.

Crestron RL is designed to extend the Microsoft Lync experience to the conference room so that groups can communicate and collaborate in real time regardless of their physical location.

It combines the room control systems of Crestron with the unified collaboration features associated with Microsoft Lync and incorporates the Crestron UC Codec for Lync, plus HD camera, microphone, speaker bar, one or two 65in touch displays and a high resolution 10in tabletop touch screen.

James Vickerage, head of Northern EMEA at Video Corporation said: "Customers are demanding more user control and collaboration from video conferencing. Crestron RL meets this demand head on, enabling users to share content instantly and easily. Crestron RL is also unique in that it integrates all systems, including lights, shades, and AV onto one platform. This is not only great news for the customer, but a great opportunity for dealers and integrators too”.

In addition, the agreement will incorporate distribution of Crestron’s AirMedia presentation tool. This allows users to wirelessly connect their own device in a meeting or collaboration session and share content.

"The partnership with Video Corporation provides us with an invaluable route to market though their well-established reseller channel," said Robin van Meeuwen, at Crestron International.
