Crestron adds to hardware and software control options

Crestron has expanded its control offerings, the Crestron Control App for Zoom Rooms software offers new functions to streamline the experience for the user, while Crestron’s Virtual Control (VC-4) and Crestron Construct have seen enhancements that make installs easier.

Before introducing the new Crestron Control for Zoom Rooms Software, in many cases, running Zoom Rooms video conferencing and the rest of a space’s devices required two different control interfaces, one for the collaboration software and one for everything else: lighting, shades, climate, and even the AV systems needed for a hybrid meeting.

Video conferencing systems can natively use Crestron Control to expand its capabilities thanks to Crestron Control App for Zoom Rooms Software. That means that everything from lighting, shades, AV solutions, peripherals, and the Zoom Rooms software platform itself can all be controlled by a single user interface, quickly, intelligently, efficiently, and securely.

Systems can be scaled, and applications can be added based on the needs of the customer. The Crestron Control App for Zoom Rooms is a value-add app available for download in the Zoom App Marketplace that brings Crestron Control into the Zoom Rooms experience. There is no additional cost to enable it for spaces. Add either a Crestron 3-Series or 4-Series control systems processors, hardware processors, and Crestron VC-4 Virtual Control solutions are enabled to support Crestron Control App for Zoom Rooms Software installations today. 

The Crestron VC-4 Virtual Control software is software for enterprise IT teams, offering a solution to design and configure a room’s UC, AV, and control systems, and allowing them to save those configurations and automate them quickly.

Crestron has introduced a simplified, turnkey system for medium to large-scale, time-sensitive projects. The new Virtual Control Server 25 (VC-4-SERVER-25) comes out of the box licensed to support 25 rooms, with the ability to scale to 500 rooms, quickly and easily. It is designed to deploy and manage control across floors, buildings, and campuses, such as higher education, government, and enterprise environments, and provides limitless possibilities for maximising room functionality.

Since its introduction last year, Crestron’s drag-and-drop UI edit Crestron Construct has enhanced the application for developers to bring new features that streamline programming. Crestron Construct now has added support for authorisation token which allows Crestron Construct projects to be securely launched by users, without requiring an additional login into the control system.

Multi-resolution support has also been developed which has improved managing multiple devices in the project. These updates not only make managing multiple devices easier and more efficient, but it also provides improved performance when projects are first launched on a Crestron touch screen.
