Crestron Updates AirMedia Wireless Presentation Technology
Crestron has announced the next generation of its AirMedia wireless presentation technology. AirMedia 2.0 allows users to connect their smart devices and laptops to a room display, regardless of operating system, from anywhere in a classroom space. The technology is built into Crestron's suite of presentation solutions, including the DMPS3-4K-350-C (designed for multi-source presentation and video conferencing rooms with dual displays) DMPS3-4K-250-C (for multi-source rooms with a single display), Crestron Mercury (for single source, single display rooms) and Crestron FreeForm (for open spaces).
Features of the system include:
- Consistent user interface from room to room;
- Supports Windows, Mac OS, iOS and Android mirroring without Bonjour;
- Low latency and bandwidth;
- Automatically disconnects devices from the wireless gateway when users leave the room;
- Network-based appliance can be deployed, configured and managed from the cloud;
- Supports network security protocols, including 802.1x network access control, Active Directory user authentication, AES-128 content encryption, SSH, SSL, TLS and HTTPS; and
- With Crestron XiO Cloud or the built-in web tool, the AirMedia mobile app can be deployed to devices across the enterprise, and user access rights and firmware updates can be remotely managed.
