Crestron Sets New Standard for Collaboration with Dual-Mode Unified Communications (UC) Solution

Crestron, a global leader in workplace technology, today announced a new addition to its award-winning line of Unified Communications (UC) tabletop conferencing technology: the Crestron Flex MX. The first product to offer both native and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) capability, the Flex MX will completely transform the way businesses provide video conferencing by providing people with the flexibility to connect with anyone on any platform from any space.
 
“Our focus has always been on delivering innovations that simplify workflows and help people be more productive,” said Ranjan Singh, Executive Vice President, Product and Technology, Crestron. “Collaboration is key to a successful workplace, so it only makes sense that workplace technology be collaborative as well.”
 
A new era for video conferencing
Crestron Flex MX offers organizations the unique flexibility to run native Microsoft Teams® (UC-MX150-T) or Zoom Rooms™ (UC-MX150-Z) software, or seamlessly switch to BYOD mode for all other conferencing software. Thus, for organizations standardized on Microsoft Teams or Zoom Rooms, Flex MX delivers those native experiences, while guests can plug in their laptops and use whichever software they’re already running on their devices. This eliminates the concern that a meeting room will not support a user’s call. This capability is unprecedented among UC products and truly changes the game when it comes to enabling streamlined connectivity and collaboration. Additionally, Flex MX simplifies connection to the room display, requiring just a single cable. Other key features include:

  • HDMI® and USB connectivity for content sharing and video conferencing
  • An intelligent camera with a 150° field of vision
  • 360° quad microphone array

The industry problem
Crestron is dedicated to helping improve the 25 million meetings that take place in the U.S. each day by designing technology that:

  • Is easy-to-use
  • Starts meetings with one-touch
  • Works seamlessly with other solutions
  • Minimizes distractions and maximizes productivity


“The Crestron Flex Series, and specifically the new Flex MX models, eliminates one of the major impediments to smooth and productive meetings – attendees using different UC platforms,” said Joe Sarrasin, Director of Strategy, UC, Crestron. “The Crestron Flex Series is the only product line on the market that enables people to work together, regardless of location or web collaboration application, and this is the definition of the future of the workplace.”

The Crestron Flex line of products includes solutions for every type of meeting space, from private offices and small huddle rooms to boardrooms. Solutions include smart soundbars, desktop phones, and audio/visual tabletop conferencing.
