All You Need is Crestron Mercury and a Laptop or Smartphone
Some 15 to20 years ago, holding a video conference could be a slow, tedious, and painful experience. The equipment was bulky, the video was grainy, and a call could easily lag or freeze, making for a less than collaborative experience.
Today we routinely use video collaboration solutions from laptops and mobile devices, with excellent resolution and audio capabilities thanks to today’s powerful and sophisticated hardware and software. Apps like Zoom, Slack, Skype, GoToMeeting, and many others offer the ability not only to see and hear the person on the other end, but also share screens, files, and additional information as well.
When you get into a conference room, the same ease of use and low cost doesn’t always translate to that arena. Some systems can be costly and don’t let you use the conferencing and collaboration solution of your choice. What if you wanted a system that enabled you to use the devices you use for collaboration every day – laptops, tablets, and smartphones - but also gave you the right audio and video capabilities necessary in the meeting room so everyone can participate, in the room and remotely.
That’s why Crestron, a longtime leader in conference room design, created Mercury. Read on to find out how Mercury brings enterprise-class collaboration capabilities to one meeting room or many.
