Microsoft Crestron Skype Room System in meeting room

Crestron has announced that it has partnered with Microsoft to offer a Crestron Skype Room System, a system for small and medium meeting rooms built for Skype for Business.

Crestron Skype Room Systems can be deployed and managed enterprise-wide on the network and can be integrated with other Crestron technology.

The system incorporates a touch controller for management of the Skype meeting, HDMI and Crestron DigitalMedia inputs and outputs, as well as six USB ports for other devices. It also provides a Cresnet port for the addition of an occupancy sensor for automation and usage reporting.

“The next generation of Skype Room Systems will bring the Skype Meeting experience to millions of meeting spaces, which today have only displays and conference phones,” commented Zig Serafin, corporate vice president of Microsoft.

Crestron’s Skype for Business system will begin shipping in January 2017.
