Crestron Labs, the research arm of the engineering department is cooking up the latest cutting-edge technology to incorporate into Crestron control systems. This elite group of engineers is at the forefront of emerging technologies, working diligently to develop visionary concepts, and test new technology with the intention of bringing the solutions to market. Here are some of the latest innovations Crestron Labs and Crestron Dealers are testing that you can see at ISE 2012.
Crestron Integration with Microsoft Kinect® Crestron Labs has been testing a new technology by Microsoft that allows Microsoft Kinect® technology to be supported on any Windows-based system – and not just Xbox® as in the past. Crestron engineers created, and are testing, gestures that integrate Kinect with Crestron control. Crestron control systems will read Kinect gestures so, for example, presenters can sweep their hands left or right to advance/reverse a PowerPoint® Presentation and raise or lower hands to dim/raise the lights in the room. With Crestron’s open platform, the possibilities of what you can control and how you can trigger the commands are endless.
Siri® + Crestron = Home Automation Harmony Little Rock, AR integrator, Carnes Audio Visual (CAV) integrated the Siri® voice recognition app with his Crestron control solution in his home. Carnes can ask Siri to “turn on the lights in the kitchen,” “turn on the heat,” or “set the temperature to 70 degrees,” and the system will follow his commands and then let him know when the action has taken place. Crestron’s platform is designed for extensive customization by programmers like Carnes, providing the opportunity to create new programs that combine today’s latest technologies and Crestron control solutions.
For more than 40 years Crestron has been the world’s leading manufacturer of advanced control and automation systems, innovating technology and reinventing the way people live and work. Providing integrated solutions to control audio, video, lighting, computer, IP and environmental systems, Crestron streamlines technology, improving the quality of life for people in corporate conference rooms, hotels, classrooms, auditoriums, and in their homes.
