The Covid-19 pandemic has radically changed our society's communications norms. Traveling to in-person meetings has been replaced with remote teleconferencing, necessitating the most up-to-date technologies to support a seamless user experience.

Crestron announced its newest addition to the company’s line of Unified Communications (UC) conferencing technology, the Crestron Flex R-Series, a mobile UC system that brings collaboration ability to remote teams wherever they may be. 

In today’s climate, rooms are radically changing with an exponential demand for meetings that utilize video conferencing.  Crestron Flex R-Series eliminates the costly, time-consuming installation process, allowing organizations to better anticipate the evolving needs of the places people meet. 

“The need to share knowledge and work collaboratively is more critical than ever,” said Andrew Gross, Director of Sales, UC Enterprise. “Our Crestron Flex R-Series delivers a rapid deployment, social distancing-friendly solution that creates a productive workplace and can be utilized anywhere, quickly and efficiently. Beyond deployment, Crestron's suite of management tools ensure customers can manage more endpoints with the same resources, helping companies tackle the need to rapidly expand their video conferencing footprint.” 

Steps to collaboration 

Crestron Flex R-Series features optional dual-mode technology based on the Crestron Flex MX architecture. It enables organizations to run native Microsoft Teams® or Zoom Rooms™ software, or switch to bring-your-own-device (BYOD) mode for all other conferencing software. The turnkey system can be installed in minutes and can be moved, supporting people wherever they meet – whether in cafeterias, classrooms, manufacturing floors, or in open spaces. 

Crestron Flex R-Series includes the following features and options:

  • Intelligent camera with 150° field of vision that autoframes participants, enabling social distancing without compromising experience
  • 360° quad mic array with up to a 20’ range
  • Support for displays from 50” to 60”
  • Retractable Ethernet and power cables for easy connections
  • Support for Crestron AirMedia® Wireless Presentation System, enabling users to share content wirelessly from any device

“With worldwide video conferencing at an all-time high as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Crestron has taken swift measures to create an easy-to-use solution that brings remote collaboration to every space”, said Joseph Sarrasin, Director of Strategy, Unified Communications at Crestron. “Our new Crestron Flex R-Series is reshaping the workplace as we know it, offering customers the ability to organize meetings on demand regardless of location or application.”
