Crestron conferencing and control products get Zoom certification

Crestron Electronics has secured Zoom certification for its Videobar 70 and intelligent video cameras.

The announcement comes as Crestron also introduces a new Zoom Phone Appliance and Scheduling Panel with Zoom Rooms software.

Built on Android OS, Videobar 70 houses four high-resolution cameras with intelligent video capabilities and beamforming microphones, enabling speaker tracking, group framing and conversation mode. The Videobar 70 can detect speakers up to a 9m distance. It can be paired with a Crestron touch screen native to the Zoom Rooms platform for one-touch meeting joins and in-meeting control.

AutoTracker and AutoFramer intelligent PTZ video cameras are now officially certified for the Zoom Rooms collaboration platform. Suitable for training rooms and classrooms, the AutoTracker cameras enable presenters to speak and move around naturally while being recorded. The AutoFramer camera automatically adjusts the camera to frame all in-room participants, which is suited to conference room meetings. Crestron says that within this quarter, Zoom will also certify the Hawk, which features dual 12x optical PTZ cameras that show the active speaker by automatically matching audio location to the closest detected face.

The Crestron Phone product line now includes a Zoom Phone Appliance optimised for individual desktop use in offices and homes. Available in 8- and 10-in touchscreen models, the high-resolution display provides a dedicated meeting device with a camera and 360-degree audio pickup.

Crestron will now offer a native Zoom Scheduling Panel for a consistent user experience both inside and outside of the room for organisations standardised on the Zoom Rooms platform. Crestron has historically offered certified scheduling solutions for Zoom, but this new product SKU will simplify and streamline the ordering process.
