Integrating Controls Technology on a Single Technology Platform
We are moving to a networked world. Our business tools are all accessible via networks; our phones are powered by a variety of web apps that make us work smarter, not harder. Our government offices are increasingly linked to our personal identities, and even our children’s school work is available for download from the school’s network.
Technology is no longer localized, and absolute needs exist for an integrated, networked solution for organizations of all sizes. In the audio-visual solutions industry, almost all key processes exist on the network. Running the networked computers and printers, coordinating an organization’s audio and video practice, and standardizing common numbers for lighting and HVAC control brings about new challenges for all types of businesses and organizations. If your group hasn’t formulated a budget requirement to get your audio-visual network together, now is the time.
Standardizing requirements on a technology platform can give organizations an integrated control platform for running audio-visual equipment. Many of the manufacturers that work with CCS Presentations Systems have products that integrate and control device interfaces. When companies, schools and government offices optimize their enterprise AV management and control, it brings about a swifter range of benefits.
Our manufacturing partner Crestron offers a wide range of integrated solutions for AV control. Its key benefit to customers is the practical use of consolidating all available products onto the same technology platform. This coordinated approach lets companies find audio-visual solutions for every room, no matter the size, specs or budget parameters,
Crestron makes it easy for organizations to tie these networks together with its RoomView enterprise management software. Not only is RoomView affordable and practical to work with, but it gives users a configurable interface to manage a company’s network. From this integrated system, AV managers can remotely monitor, manage and control each room device from any computer.
This multi-user resource management program provides not only facility-wide monitoring and audio-visual control, but also a quick-glance view of an organization’s entire control system network.
For smaller organizations, Crestron’s iMedia is a cost-sensitive switching and control system designed for small rooms with just a projector, screen, and simple audio. The scalable product line called QuickMedia brings together solutions for audio mixing, video processing and integrated control.
Connecting to networks is the overall focus of Crestron products. All Crestron hardware, and any device linked to a Crestron controller, works right into the managed network.
Crestron control systems also let users monitor and manage room screens, shades, lights, temperature gauges and other networked devices via its single software interface. In a company’s networked environment, Crestron’s RoomView is the seamless integrator for superb management and control with various devices, PCs, and touch panels.
