Coalition of Integrated Partners Embed Crestron Intelligence in Commercial & Consumer Electronic Products
Crestron Connected™ has been widely adopted by leading technology manufacturers and continues to grow. The Crestron Connected initiative embeds Crestron control intelligence into a wide selection of third party source equipment and display devices such as projectors, displays, and audio/video receivers to operate seamlessly with Crestron control technologies. It allows for native plug-and-play support for any device that has Crestron embedded within it and provides the framework for a distributed cloud-based control system. Crestron brings together world-class technology leaders from a spectrum of diverse markets including audio/video, lighting, HVAC, scheduling software, security and many other product categories. These Integrated Partners have incorporated Crestron intelligence into millions of projectors since the program started in 2010. Crestron is now exploring other devices as well.
“Adoption of Crestron Connected has exceeded expectations,” says Steve Samson, Crestron Director of Business Development. “We have created the industry standard for communication among all electronic devices.”
Crestron recently announced the integration of Crestron Connected in its first flat panel display – the Mitsubishi Electric Visual Solutions America LDT462V 46-inch LCD. Mitsubishi Electric will be among the Crestron Integrated Partners demonstrating Crestron Connected devices at InfoComm® 2012.
The power of Crestron technology will also be on display in the following Integrated Partner InfoComm booths: 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 more.
“We’ve had incredibly positive feedback to the Crestron Connected initiative,” adds Samson. “We are receiving lots of interest from manufacturers to embed the technology. This is where the technology is going and electronic device manufacturers are recognizing that.”
Crestron currently has more than 500 Integrated Partners. To become an Integrated Partner and start using Crestron Connected, visit Crestron.com/connected.
