Crestron releases AirMedia for mobile wireless presentation

25 July 2013

Crestron has introduced AirMedia, its new wireless HD presentation solution for small meeting rooms. Featuring simple plug-and-play installation, AirMedia brings presentation, collaboration and content sharing capabilities to small conference rooms, meeting rooms and offices that aren’t wired for an AV system.

AirMedia enables anyone to walk into a room, connect to the existing display over Wi-Fi and wirelessly present HD content from their personal smart phone, tablet or laptop.

“AirMedia turns any room or space into a productive environment by enabling small groups to connect their personal devices wirelessly to the room display and begin collaborating immediately,” says Robin van Meeuwen, VP of Crestron International. “For IT staff, a simple Ethernet connection from the AirMedia console to the LAN is all that’s needed and your room is ready to go. No additional software, AV equipment or control system is needed.”

Crestron says AirMedia offers benefits for today’s team-oriented workplaces such as:
* Wirelessly present audio and video content to a room display, or view remotely from a personal smartphone, tablet or laptop
* Collaborate and share content from up to four personal devices simultaneously on one room display
* ''Inexpensive out-of-the-box solution'' that connects to the network – suitable for smaller spaces where an advanced AV system is not practical
* Integrates with Crestron DigitalMedia

Instant connectivity
There are three ways to present wirelessly with AirMedia:
* Use a laptop and follow the onscreen instructions. Enter the web address displayed on the splash screen to begin a presentation. No pre-installed software is required. This is especially useful for small to mid-size organisations and guest presenters.
* Download the free app to use on a personal mobile device, such as an iPhone or iPad, to instantly connect to AirMedia. Select the file to present on the room display and then swipe through slides on the mobile device.
* For large enterprise applications, IT can push the client executable to all laptops simultaneously via the network.

Group collaboration
AirMedia allows up to 40 users to connect at the same time in the same room. Switch from one presenter to the next using the onscreen button. Collaboration is also said to be easy. Using Quad View, up to four presenters’ content can be displayed simultaneously. Remote View allows participants in other locations to log in from a web browser to view the presentation.
