Crestron introduces its Skype Room System, a professional solution built in partnership with Microsoft for Skype for Business. It brings a HD audio video experience to small and midsize meeting rooms and spaces, as well as conference rooms. Work like you’re in one place; quickly and easily join meetings, make phone calls, share content in room and remotely, all from a touch screen console device.
“Working closely with Microsoft, we’ve natively integrated Skype for Business with our AV and room control technology to make a collaboration system that can be easily deployed in huddle rooms and conference rooms across the enterprise. This system can be managed on the network, and provides the seamless, intuitive Skype for Business experience to any meeting space,” says Fred Bargetzi, Crestron Chief Technology Officer.
Crestron Skype Room System has been designed to integrate easily with a variety of room systems. It features:
- A touch controller that manages the Skype Meeting
- HDMI and Crestron DigitalMedia inputs and outputs
- Six USB ports to connect audio devices, a camera, and other accessories
- Cresnet port to add an occupancy sensor for automation and room usage reporting
“The next generation of Skype Room Systems will bring the Skype Meeting experience to millions of meeting spaces, which today have only displays and conference phones” says Zig Serafin, Corporate Vice President of Microsoft. “Crestron’s new Skype Room Systems will benefit everyone who is looking to bring the Skype for Business meeting experience to every meeting room.”
