Crestron Mercury Video Conferencing

Crestron Mercury: Video Conferencing

The concept of business collaboration has radically changed over the years.  Organizations have adopted both large video conferencing room designs for company meetings and smaller huddle space collaboration areas for everyday situations.  In the past, automating room conferencing features have proven complex, costly, and required different types of hardware/software.  In today’s business collaboration environment, an integrated and scalable control system managing a room’s audio-visual automation is now a necessity.
