Crestron RL brings Microsoft Lync to the conference room
 
Rockleigh, NJ, August 29, 2013 – Crestron today announced that Crestron RL™, its powerful new group collaboration solution for the conference room, is officially qualified by Microsoft as fully interoperable with Microsoft Lync Server 2013. Crestron RL™ is a comprehensive solution that combines Crestron hardware with Microsoft Lync, the popular software-based UC solution that many companies already use on a daily basis for their communication and productivity needs.  Lync enables video, voice, interactive content sharing, presence, and chat from a personal device such as a tablet or laptop. Crestron RL brings Lync from the desktop to the conference room. In addition, Crestron RL links to all systems in the room and gives users control of the entire room from the same touch screen.
 
“We’re pleased to have Crestron as one of our Lync Room System partners, and excited that they will bring to market a solution that not only has a great Lync experience, but can also control the lights, shades, and much more, all from the same touch screen,” said Giovanni Mezgec, General Manager of Lync and Skype® Product Marketing.
 
Easy to use 

With just one touch of a button, anyone can walk into a conference room and instantly start a collaboration session. Share your desktop with local and remote participants; view and annotate over Microsoft PowerPoint® or interactive whiteboard remotely or locally using the 65" touch display(s) supplied. Remote participants can join via Lync on their desktop. Adding attendees on the fly in the conference room is just as simple and fast as typing in their names. Share ideas and notes collaboratively with colleagues, clients, and partners anytime, anywhere with any device.
 
Complete & scalable room solution

CatNet SystemsOnly Crestron RL is designed to seamlessly integrate with Crestron DigitalMedia™ and all other Crestron enterprise control solutions and products to offer a complete room solution. Simply press the “RL” button to instantly access lighting, shades, thermostats, DigitalMedia, AV presentation, and much more - all from the same touch screen. Crestron RL rooms can be centrally monitored, managed, and controlled using Crestron Fusion™ software for a complete Enterprise Building Management solution.
 
Easy to purchase, easy to install 

Crestron RL is a complete packaged solution which includes the Crestron UC Codec for Lync, HD camera, microphone, 65" touch display(s), a hi-res 10" tabletop touch screen, and more. Crestron RL connects over the corporate LAN which makes implementation easy and hassle-free. Simply mount the display, connect Crestron RL to the network, and authenticate. No system design or programming is needed. If you already have Lync 2013 deployed, no additional licenses, fees, or infrastructure expenses, such as MCUs or gateways*, are needed to light up a Crestron RL system.
