Crestron Debuts Web Conferencing Systems

AV company Crestron has developed a new line of tabletop conferencing systems that provide for "one-touch" web meetings for small work spaces, such as home offices. The Crestron Flex MM features:

  • One-touch joins;

  • A seven-inch touch screen;

  • A pickup range of 10 feet;

  • Enterprise-grade network security; and

  • The capability of being remotely provisioned, controlled and managed.

Certain models also include an ultra-wide-angle high-definition camera with a 150-degree diagonal field of view.

There are three basic versions:

  • The MM30-TA, with a retail price of $750, accommodates Microsoft Teams audio-only meetings; and

  • MM30-T or MM30-Z, priced at $3,000 each, comes with native Microsoft Teams or Zoom video-conferencing support (and the camera).

"The pandemic has dramatically shifted the way we work and the spaces we work in," said Andrew Gross, director of unified communications for the enterprise at Crestron, in a press release. "Microsoft Teams and Zoom are household names, huddle rooms and conference spaces are being redefined to team units, and our desks are overrun with migratory devices that are never ready for the next video call. Crestron is quickly engineering products to solve these problems."
