Crestron, the global leader in commercial AV and meeting room technology, announced it will begin shipping Crestron Mercury, the most complete, easy to use, easy to deploy and manage tabletop meeting and collaboration system, in EMEA from the middle of May. The sleek, all-in-one console is all that’s needed to transform any space into highly effective collaboration space. It combines all the must-have conferencing and collaboration features employees need, along with the fast, secure cloud provisioning and management required by IT managers.
“Mercury addresses all the challenges that arise as more meetings involve remote participants with disparate applications running on personal devices, rather than in local, dedicated rooms with installed hardware. It provides everything needed for conference calls, BYOD presentations, and web collaboration in a single console, while making it easy, secure, and cost effective for businesses to deploy and manage the technology across an enterprise.” – Ted Colton, VP of UC Strategy at Crestron
Mercury enables users to instantly and securely present content wirelessly on the room display from a laptop, smartphone, or tablet using the built-in Crestron AirMedia wireless presentation gateway.
With Mercury, it’s easy to make exceptional sounding phone calls from mobile devices or standard SIP phone systems using the built-in, precision-engineered speaker and microphones.
Knowledge workers can easily collaborate with colleagues via Crestron Mercury from a laptop or dedicated in-room PC using any soft phone, or web conferencing or UC application, such as Skype for Business, Cisco WebEx, GotoMeeting, or Slack.
Measure and secure
The built-in occupancy sensor on Crestron Mercury enables facility managers to collect usage data to drive efficient room utilization. And IT managers can rest easy knowing Crestron Mercury meets the latest enterprise security standards.
Available collaboration spaces equipped with Mercury can be located quickly and easily thanks to the built-in Crestron PinPoint proximity beacon on each console. Seamless integration with Microsoft Exchange enables users to reserve a room using Mercury’s convenient on-screen calendar.
An exciting new release from a brand that offers consistently impressive UC solutions that help business engage more with clients and colleagues. By creating a fully transportable conferencing and collaboration system that is easily transportable and integrates with all the latest web conferencing and UC apps, the Crestron Mercury gives users the freedom to take conferencing with them wherever they go and is just another example of how UC technology is really pushing the boundaries with groundbreaking innovation.
