Creston Mercury provides a complete conference room solution

Issue 7 2020 Smart Home Automation

Crestron Mercury is a console-based terminal device engineered to create remote conferencing and collaboration facilities for enterprise and small business applications, and is particularly applicable during our current work-from-home era. It is available in multiple forms, including models for ‘Open UC’ audio or video conferencing applications, as well as models dedicated for use with the Microsoft Teams IC platform as part of a complete Crestron Flex kit solution. In any huddle space, meeting room, or executive office, Crestron Mercury delivers a distinctively simple and consistent user experience in all the places people work and meet.

Built on the IoT cloud based XiO Cloud platform, the system empowers IT administrators and AV integrators to deploy, manage, monitor, and evolve thousands of networked UC devices – simply, quickly, and securely – all from a single dashboard. By standardising, any organisation can realise a more productive and stress-free workplace through greater acceptance and utilisation of UC technology that’s truly easy to use.

The Crestron Mercury Tabletop UC Audio Conference System (CCS-UC-1 W/PS) provides a complete audio conference room solution for open-platform UC applications. In one table-top console device, it comprises a high-performance, full-duplex conferencing speakerphone and touchscreen controller that works natively with any SIP VoIP phone system, Skype for Business VoIP application, or Zoom Rooms conferencing system. It also works with any audio conferencing or softphone application running on a laptop connected via USB, and pairs with any mobile phone via Bluetooth. Integrated room scheduling capabilities and corporate directory access provide knowledge workers with the tools they need to work smart and efficiently.

Mercury transforms any meeting room, huddle space, or executive office into a highly effective collaboration space, enabling people to communicate and work together irrespective of location. Intuitive operation and exceptional full-duplex wideband audio afford a gratifying and productive meeting experience for all participants. The system is secure, easy to deploy and easy to manage with extensive features and capabilities engineered to maximise the value of any investment through increased efficiency and productivity.

Crestron Mercury enables people to work together, regardless of location or web collaboration application:

• Collaborate – use any soft phone, web conferencing, or UC application to collaborate right from your laptop.

• Present – the built-in Crestron AirMedia gateway enables secure, wireless presentation on the room display.

• Call – leverage the precision engineered speaker and microphones to enjoy phone calls that sound like everyone is in the same room. Use the Bluetooth audio to pair with mobile phones, or the built-in full open SIP conference phone to make calls.

• Deploy, monitor, manage and learn: with the Crestron XiO Cloud IoT-based service, users can simultaneously configure and deploy an unlimited number of Crestron Mercury consoles, dramatically reducing installation time. Resolve events remotely to prevent lost work time and gather actionable usage data, all with no programming required.
