Crestron CAPTUS SYSTEMSCrestron FLEX:  What Crestron itself says about its new One-Touch UC Platform: “One Touch. One Experience. Any Communication. Anywhere.” The simplicity of this product characterization says it all, as it echoes the purity of functionality of this user-friendly UC Platform.

Crestron UC Video Conference Smart Sound Bar & Camera:  This is where the “sleek” comes-in. The UC-SB1-CAM is not only eye-catching – with its slender, modern design – but it sounds GREAT as well! This Smart Sound Bar can be placed either on a credenza under the main room display – or mounted on a wall. Either way, the UC-SB1-CAM will do its job well – performing like any USB Audio or USB Video class device, enabling use as a speaker, microphone, & camera – for a variety of multimedia applications running on a computer. Whether on an actual call or not – this (very) Smart Sound Bar can be used to share content with everyone in the room. It can also be used to make recordings, with results that are both professional & outstanding.


Crestron Digital Media NVX-350:  The latest in AV over IP encoder/decoder design, this compact unit functions as either a transmitter or receiver. Both reliable & high-performing, the DM-NVX-350 transports 4K60 4:4:4 video over standard Gigabit Ethernet with no perceptible latency or loss of quality. Along with built-in scaling & video wall processing, USB & KVM routing, & optional fiber connectivity – it supports both HDR10 & HDCP 2.2. The DM-NVX-350 features simple & secure web-based control & management, & offers a one-stop solution for network AV installation of any size.


FT2 FlipTop Cable Management Solution:  Tired of having to deal with that hard-to-see, hard-to-reach tangle of cables in order to connect your media presentation to the table? Crestron has a brand-new solution for that! The FT2 FlipTop models all feature a wide variety of modular connections, power outlets, & additional accessories. Other characteristics include stunning industrial design, along with backlit international icons that make connection identification unmistakable. The FT2s are mounted flush with the table & are available in both black & aluminum finishes, with a one-touch fully retractable lid. Design & utility meet to make a modular-connection marriage-made-in-heaven – which will ultimately make your media presentation experience uncomplicated & effortless!
