Tech & Learning Magazine announced the recipients of this year’s Awards of Excellence recognition program. Crestron won two Best New Products awards for QuickPack Classroom AV System Package and RoomView Connected®. Honored software, hardware, network, web products include innovative applications that break new ground and add significant enhancements to proven education tools. Winners were selected by a panel of more than 30 educators, who installed and tested more than 160 products in a simulated classroom environment.

“Our readers are looking for rigorous edtech products that improve teaching and learning, inspire teachers and students, as well as meet today’s assessment and standards requirements,” says Kevin Hogan, Editorial Director for NewBay Media’s Tech & Learning Group. “This year’s Award of Excellence judges put over 160 products to the test, and chose only those that met these criteria. The winners can be proud that their products were selected as winners by this prestigious team of judges.”

Crestron QP-200 QuickPack Classroom AV System Package makes it easy and affordable to install a quality projection and audio system in every classroom. The QP-200 package includes a professional wall mount controller, a pair of high-performance surface-mount speakers with amplifier, a universal ceiling projector mount, wall plate inputs for one video and one VGA computer source, cabling and connectors. AV Managers simply add the projector and screen of their choice and walk away with a complete installed classroom presentation system. QuickPack solutions also integrate seamlessly with popular interactive whiteboards and wireless microphones.

RoomView Connected devices, including many popular projector brands, feature Crestron’s popular RoomView® Express help desk support built-in at no extra cost. Built-in network connectivity provides instant remote technical support so class is never interrupted, and emergency broadcast messaging ensures a safe learning environment. Schools simply connect the new projector and Crestron RoomView software automatically recognizes the device for immediate, seamless communication and control. Only RoomView connected devices or devices connected to a Crestron control system may be fully managed and controlled with RoomView. Crestron Connected will soon be available in other poplar devices such as flat panel HD displays and Blu-ray Disc® players.

“Crestron is excited to be recognized by Tech & Learning for our affordable classroom technology,” said Sean Goldstein, Crestron VP of Marketing. “QuickPack and RoomView Connected represent our continued efforts to create easy to use solutions that enable teachers to focus on teaching and not waste time with AV equipment.”

The full list of Awards of Excellence winners are featured in the December 2011 Tech & Learning Awards Issue.
