Crestron Unveils Complete, Sustainable Integrated Building Management Solutions at InfoComm® International 2012

Crestron Integrated by Design™ Products Deliver Comprehensive Building Management Solution

Today, commercial buildings are smarter than ever before and require a fundamentally new approach to building management. Crestron will showcase its integrated enterprise solutions during InfoComm® International 2012 this week in Las Vegas. Crestron solutions enable global monitoring, management and control of AV, energy, voice & data, lighting, security, room scheduling, and HVAC on a single platform to maximize energy savings, lower operational costs and increase productivity. InfoComm attendees will have the opportunity to experience the fully-functional integrated building environment live at the show.

“No one is building schools, hospitals, hotels or office spaces that aren’t energy efficient, networked and digital,” said Sean Goldstein, Crestron VP of Marketing. “While the various technologies and systems may be on the network, they all run separately. Our clients want and expect all systems on the network to work together in an intelligent way and to be centrally managed.”

There’s only one dependable way to achieve measurable, worthwhile reductions in energy usage and utility costs: integrate all building systems on a single platform. Crestron brings all the technology under one roof so clients can make intelligent, informed decisions, support all the technology in all the rooms, and set up automation to optimize energy efficiency.

“Integrated by Design is where we see the future of building and home technology heading,” said Fred Bargetzi, Crestron VP of Technology. “Our solutions are engineered to integrate with other technology in the building on one platform so that it can be monitored, managed and controlled conveniently and more efficiently.”

Crestron will introduce several new products at InfoComm that enable complete building management. Here are some of Integrated by Design solutions attendees will experience at the show:

Crestron makes it easy and affordable to upgrade all the analog AV systems to digital and get them on the network. Crestron DigitalMedia™ is more than a switcher and a receiver. It’s a complete, engineered, source-to-display AV solution. DigitalMedia includes everything needed to connect, display, distribute and manage all analog and digital – audio and video signals. And DigitalMedia is easy to integrate with the managed network. DM® features a built-in high-speed Ethernet switch and operates in Private Network Mode – meaning the entire DM system uses just one IP address on the network. DM also supports SNMP data, so IT managers can monitor the AV system from their IT dashboard – such as HP Network Management Center or IBM Tivoli®.

CaptureLiveHD™, the new simple, affordable high-definition lecture capture and live streaming solution, provides faculty and presenters with a simple to use one-button solution to schedule, record, publish online, and view lectures, presentations and medical procedures. CaptureLiveHD is smartly designed as a complete yet practical meeting and lecture capture solution that’s easy for the entire faculty to use, and offers the lowest cost of ownership since there are no annual service fees. The budget-friendly solution permits wide-scale deployment across any sized campus or corporate environment.

Fusion™ enterprise management platform revolutionizes the way organizations control their building technology. Fusion is a modular platform providing the foundation for smarter buildings that save energy and enhance worker productivity. Customers can choose to deploy Fusion RV™(RoomView), Fusion EM™(Energy Management), or both based on organizational needs. Fusion RV enables organizations to centrally monitor and manage room scheduling, as well as AV presentation and video conferencing resources from the help desk. Award-winning Fusion EM manages and monitors all energy sources in real-time, captures, analyzes, and modifies historical usage data, and allows users easy access to control and automate commands that impact energy savings, all within the same interface.

Crestron 3-Series™ Control Systems with BACnet/IP support form the core of any modern building, integrating and managing all the disparate technologies throughout the facility to impact productivity, efficiency and cost savings. Integrated control of lighting, shades, HVAC, AV, BMS, security, IT, and other connected systems is now faster, simpler and more efficient than ever before. Built-in BACnet/IP support enables seamless integration with existing building management systems. All systems run independently and communicate with each other on the same platform, creating a truly smart building.

Six 3-Series Control System™ models are now offered. It all started with the MC3, which now features built-in OSD control capability. The rack-mountable CP3 gets three new siblings: the CP3N, AV3, and PRO3. Finally, the TPCS-4SMD combines a 3-Series control processor and touch screen controller in one, affording complete room control at an incredible price — and no equipment rack required.

The new DMPS-300-C-AEC provides everything needed to equip any room for the highest quality HD presentations and more. Intelligently combined into an efficient all-in-one component, DMPS-300-C-AEC delivers a complete high-definition presentation control and signal routing solution that integrates a control processor, multimedia matrix switcher, mic mixer, audio DSP and amplifier with DigitalMedia technology. DMPS-300-C-AEC takes in every source signal, processes, mixes and amplifies the audio, and transmits it all flawlessly over a single CAT5e wire. To improve presentations, lectures and video/teleconferencing, Crestron added full-bandwidth acoustic echo cancelling (AEC) to all six mic inputs, eliminating the need for third party echo cancelling devices.

The newest addition to the Crestron touch screen family, the TSW-750 is a surface mount touch screen featuring a clean, contemporary appearance with edge-to-edge glass and Core 3 UI™ graphics. Perfectly at home in the modern office building or school, its high-tech good looks underline its power for simplifying everyday tasks and functions throughout any facility. The TSW-750 delivers the ultimate touch screen experience in an unobtrusive, space-saving design featuring a brilliant 7 inch touch screen display and 5 soft-touch buttons for quick access to commonly used functions such as “Power,” “Home,” “Lights,” “Up,” and “Down.”

To see the fully-functional “Integrated by Design” building and all the latest products and technologies that make it possible, visit Crestron at InfoComm International 2012, booth #C7508 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 13-15.

Crestron Showcases New HD Lecture Capture and Live Streaming Solution at InfoComm® 2012

CaptureLiveHD™ Provides a Simple and Affordable Way to Record, Publish and View Lectures Online from Anywhere, Anytime

At InfoComm® 2012 in Las Vegas, Crestron will showcase CaptureLiveHD™, its new simple, affordable high-definition lecture capture and live streaming solution. CaptureLiveHD provides faculty and presenters with a simple to use one-button solution to schedule, record, publish online, and view lectures, presentations and medical procedures. CaptureLiveHD is smartly designed as a complete yet practical meeting and lecture capture solution that’s easy for the entire faculty to use, and offers lower cost of ownership since there are no regular service fees. The budget-friendly solution permits wide-scale deployment across any sized campus or corporate environment. Students and staff can now view live streaming or recorded presentations and lecture series in true high-definition from wherever and whenever they choose, including from popular mobile devices or a laptop.

The complete CaptureLiveHD solution simplifies the process of scheduling, recording and publishing lectures. Schedule a session (class or meeting) in any room using the Fusion RV™ room scheduling software or a laptop using applications such as Outlook®, Lotus Notes®, or R25®. Simply schedule the room for a single meeting or a whole semester of classes and Fusion RV automatically prepares the room and sends details about the session to the Capture HD recorder.

At the beginning of the session, the instructor or presenter can start recording by pressing the RECORD button on the Capture HD device or touch screen in the room. When the instructor stops recording at the end of the session, the file uploads automatically to a network server, allowing seamless distribution of the content to various devices and network speeds.

Smartly designed for easy installation and operation, the CaptureLiveHD system includes the Capture HD™ High-Definition Capture Recorder, CAPTURE-TPMC-4SM Touch Screen Controller which is also used as a confidence monitor, allowing the presenter to see him/herself to assure they are in the frame, a choice of Sony PTZ, and Sony Compact HD video cameras, and Fusion RV™ remote asset management software to centrally monitor and manage room scheduling, AV presentation and video conferencing resources from the help desk.

Organizations have the option of purchasing Capture HD High-Definition Capture Recorder as a standalone solution featuring a compact all-in-one design. Capture HD eliminates the need for a control system or multiple components such as a video window processor, video switcher and splitter, and microphone mixer, making installation simple. Instructors or presenters simply insert a USB stick into the device, press the RECORD button and walk away with a complete high-definition lecture in hand at the end of the class.

“Lecture capture devices today consist of either very expensive and complex models, which many schools cannot afford with their tightening budgets, or very low-end models that are awkward to use and don’t provide the flexibility large organizations require,” said Sean Goldstein, Crestron VP of Marketing. “CaptureLiveHD handles the whole process for you, it’s versatile and affordable, and provides the power to meet the digital content distribution needs of any size institution.”

To see CaptureLiveHD in action, visit Crestron at InfoComm 2012, June 13-15 in Las Vegas – Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Hall, Booth #C7508.

Crestron Showcases Fusion™ Enterprise Management Solution at InfoComm® 2012

Enables organizations to monitor and manage AV equipment, BMS, room scheduling, lighting, shades, climate, and energy consumption from a single platform

At InfoComm® 2012, Crestron showcased its Fusion enterprise management platform, which revolutionizes the way organizations control their building technology. Fusion is a modular platform providing the foundation for smarter buildings that save energy and enhance worker productivity. Customers can choose to deploy Fusion RV™(RoomView), Fusion EM™(Energy Management) or both based on organizational needs.

Fusion RV enables organizations to centrally monitor and manage room scheduling, as well as AV presentation and video conferencing resources, including CaptureLiveHD™, from the help desk. It can track device and room usage to schedule routine maintenance, provide real-time remote technical support and receive instant alert notifications. Robust reporting features provide data to make more effective purchasing and scheduling decisions.

Fully integrated with Microsoft® Exchange Server, IBM®, Lotus Notes®, and CollegeNet™ R25® for scheduling, Fusion RV enables occupants to conveniently book conference rooms from the web browser, a touch screen mounted inside or outside the room, or from Microsoft Outlook®.

Award-winning, Fusion EM manages and monitors renewable and sustainable energy sources in real-time, and displays historical usage data for day, week, month or year. It also provides environmental control, including lighting, shades and climate, to intelligently integrate with room scheduling and occupancy for greater energy savings. Fusion EM is able to track the building’s carbon footprint while enabling facility managers to easily analyze energy consumption.

“For organizations with lots of meeting rooms, classrooms or multiple campuses, Fusion gives managers enterprise-wide control on one seamless platform,” said Fred Bargetzi, Crestron VP of Technology. “You can manage and monitor your enterprise, including all AV resources, network room scheduling, lighting, and climate in every room of every building, plus track and manage energy usage. Fusion simplifies energy management, your entire AV network, and everything on it – all from one platform.”

High Scalability and Failover Redundancy Support
Designed for unlimited scalability to accommodate organizational growth as a robust, scalable enterprise application, Fusion provides direct database integration with Microsoft SQL Server® – from standalone server to enterprise fault-tolerant clusters. As networks and room capacity grow, additional Fusion servers can be added and fully integrated for faster performance across the enterprise. Deploying multiple Fusion servers also provides built-in fail-safe redundancy for extreme reliability and uptime. In the event one server fails, any other Fusion server can take over without adversely affecting the whole system. The result is increased productivity in the fastest-paced organizations.

Built-in Automated Reporting
Enhanced reporting features in Fusion simplify planning and forecasting. Managers can view detailed reports with room usage statistics, lamp replacement schedules, AV equipment usage, and more. Quick reports can be created using simple built-in report templates. Custom reports can also be easily created. Automatic email scheduling can be used to send reports to a group of recipients on a recurring basis. Additionally, email alerts can be sent to support staff when projector lamps are nearing end-of-life, increasing the efficiency of routine maintenance tasks and preventing equipment failure during usage.

Crestron HD Lecture Capture and Live Streaming Solution Demonstrated at Sony® Booth During InfoComm® 2012

Crestron Integrated by Design™ Technologies to Handle HD Video Distribution for All Areas of Sony’s Exhibit

Crestron technology will go beyond its 9,000-square-foot booth at InfoComm® International to outfit the Sony® Electronics booth with Crestron Integrated by Design™ technology solutions. Sony will demonstrate CaptureLiveHD™, Crestron’s new simple, affordable high-definition lecture capture and live streaming solution, in education and corporate vignettes at their booth. The solution couples Crestron control with Sony PTZ and compact video cameras to provide faculty and presenters with a simple-to-use one-button solution for scheduling, recording, online publishing, and for viewing lectures, presentations and medical procedures. Crestron’s complete end-to-end digital network solution, DigitalMedia™ will handle HD video distribution and source switching of content to 30 displays throughout the Sony booth.

“When industry leaders like Sony and Crestron collaborate on high-quality application specific solutions, it results in new, vibrant growth for our innovative products and creates powerful integration solutions,” said Ken LaMarca, vice president of the visual imaging products division at Sony Electronics.

The Sony booth features an interactive environment with corporate and education solutions in action that convey its theme “Collaborate. Present. Communicate.” A Crestron Integrated Partner, Sony utilized many of Crestron’s Integrated by Design technology solutions, including Crestron control, CaptureLiveHD, DigitalMedia, and Crestron Mobile Pro®. Sony will also have Crestron Connected™ projectors on hand to display show content.

Sony will demonstrate the use of its PTZ cameras with Crestron Capture HD™ High-Definition Capture Recorder in the PTZ remote video camera area. The game-changing, CaptureLiveHD solution is smartly designed as a complete yet practical meeting and lecture capture solution that’s easy for the entire faculty to use, and is designed to offer a lower cost of ownership since there are no annual service fees. The budget-friendly solution permits wide-scale deployment across any sized campus or corporate environment. Students and staff can now view live streaming or recorded presentations and lecture series in true high-definition from wherever and whenever they choose, including from popular mobile devices or a laptop.

The new Sony EVI-H100S PTZ HD camera offers full native HD (1920 x 1080) resolution and is equipped with 20x optical zoom capabilities. In addition, the EVI-H100S can be desktop- or ceiling-mounted depending on your specific application requirement. In classroom environments, PTZ cameras allow professors to reach students around the globe while walking from the lectern to the blackboard and interacting with students within the classroom. When connected to the Capture HD recorder, the EVI-H100S is the perfect camera for capturing various angles and views of a presentation.

“We have a great relationship with Sony,” notes Steve Samson, Crestron Director of Business Development. “We have worked together on several projects to develop the high quality solutions that our customers demand.”

A Crestron DigitalMedia DM32X32 matrix switcher will handle HD video distribution and source switching to all 30 flat panel displays and projectors in the booth, which includes complete centralized control, all via a single standard CAT5E cable to each display. The DM® switch will allow the individual displays to showcase both local and centralized content, depending on the desired presentation. Twice an hour, the booth will feature a unified message across all displays.

Sony’s XDS professional media station will also be used to provide a cutting-edge video editing station for a variety of venues. During Sony’s demonstrations at InfoComm, Crestron will be controlling the workstation to demonstrate the flexibility of both systems to talk to each other.

Control will be possible from local Crestron touch screens and the Crestron Mobile Pro app, using Sony’s Tablet S as a virtual Crestron touch screen for remote control of the booth’s technology.

Crestron worked with Sony last year to showcase its InfoComm messaging using the Sony Ziris™ Canvas custom video wall system. This year Crestron will feature Sony PTZ cameras in its InfoComm booth. “This is a great opportunity to showcase the integration between two great brands. We look forward to bringing more winning products and solutions to the marketplace,” adds Samson.

To see the Sony integration of Crestron technology, visit the Sony Booth at InfoComm International 2012, booth # C7008 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, June 13-15.
