Crestron, the industry leader in automation and control technology, recently
announced it has partnered with Microsoft® to create Crestron’s Skype Room
System, a powerful, professional solution built for Skype for Business, which brings
an HD audio video experience to small and midsize meeting rooms and spaces, as
well as conference rooms. Work like you’re in one place; quickly and easily join
meetings, make phone calls, instantly share content in room and remotely, all from
an elegant touch screen console device.

“Working closely with Microsoft, we’ve natively integrated Skype for Business with
our AV and room control technology to make a collaboration system that can be
easily deployed in huddle rooms and conference rooms across the enterprise. This
system can be managed on the network, and provides the seamless, intuitive Skype
for Business experience to any meeting space,’ says Fred Bargetzi, Crestron Chief
Technology Officer.

Designed to simplify meetings

Engineered from the ground up to easily integrate with a broad range of meeting
rooms, the Crestron Skype Room System features:

• A touch controller that manages the Skype Meeting
• HDMI® and Crestron DigitalMedia™ inputs and outputs
• Six (6) USB ports to connect audio devices, a camera, and other
• Cresnet® port to add an occupancy sensor for automation and room usage

“The next generation of Skype Room Systems will bring the Skype Meeting
experience to millions of meeting spaces, which today have only displays and
conference phones’ says Zig Serafin, Corporate Vice President of Microsoft.
“Crestron’s new Skype Room Systems will benefit everyone who is looking to bring
the Skype for Business meeting experience to every meeting room.’
