Crestron’s Mercury conferencing system can now natively run Zoom UX for Zoom Room simplicity. Zoom, a provider of enterprise video and web communications technology, can now offer ease of access to its Zoom Room experience by offering an integrated solution for AV presentation, conferencing and collaboration with the Crestron Mercury conferencing system.

A Zoom Room features a dedicated computer running the Zoom application, so instead of carrying a laptop or tablet running the Zoom control App and needing a speakerphone for conference audio, Crestron Mercury natively runs the Zoom UX and providing the audio via four professional microphones for 360° coverage, plus wired and wireless HD presentation and room booking.

“Crestron and Zoom both understand the need for increasingly flexible collaboration capabilities,” saysTed Colton, VP of Unified Communications Strategy at Crestron. “People want to work and collaborate from anywhere without worrying about the quality of their conferencing solutions. Our work together is just beginning and I’m looking forward to making the perfect, one-touch meeting accessible anywhere.”

“With this announcement, Crestron and Zoom have combined their respective strengths to create a solution we expect will hit the mark for many customers,” adds Ira M. Weinstein, senior analyst and partner, Wainhouse Research.” Presenting the Zoom user experience on Crestron Mercury provides a compelling combination of ease-of-use and enterprise-readiness. We view these two industry heavyweights working together as a win-win and we look forward to more announcements and innovation from Zoom and Crestron in the future.”

Eric S. Yuan, founder and CEO of Zoom, concludes: “We look for partners that share our commitment to seamless collaboration with the highest-quality, easiest to use technology. Crestron Mercury + Zoom Rooms raises the bar, it makes any space feel like that one conference room that everyone wants to book.”
