Next-Generation Crestron AirMedia 2.0 Wireless Presentation Technology Debuts at ISE 2018

Crestron AirMedia 2.0 wireless presentation technology

Crestron AirMedia 2.0, the next generation of the enterprise control and automation solutions provider’s wireless presentation technology, is debuting at ISE 2018.

 According to Crestron, AirMedia 2.0, which is built into Crestron presentation solutions — such as Crestron Mercury, DMPS3-4K-350-C, DMPS3-4K-250-C and Crestron FreeForm (CCS-F-2) — delivers the fastest, easiest, most manageable, and secure wireless presentation solution.

ISE 2018 attendees can check out AirMedia 2.0 in Hall-2, Stand 2-C20.

In a press release, Crestron writes that AirMedia 2.0 frees people to sit or stand anywhere in the room or space and easily connect their smart devices and laptops to the room display, regardless of operating system — no more wires or dongles cluttering the table. In fact, you don’t even need a table.

“AirMedia 2.0 is the only enterprise-grade wireless presentation solution out there. It supports standard network security protocols and has the lowest latency and bandwidth,” says Fred Bargetzi, Crestron CTO.

“It supports Windows, Mac OS, iOS, and Android mirroring without Bonjour, and it can be deployed and managed from the cloud with CrestronXiO Cloud.”

More on its networking features from Crestron AirMedia 2.0 press release:

While other products provide just a wireless access point, exposing confidential content to potential security breaches, AirMedia 2.0 is a network-based wireless presentation technology that leverages the latest security protocols: 802.1x network access control; Active Directory® user authentication; AES-128 content encryption; and SSH, SSL, TLS, and HTTPS.

Additionally, most people leave meetings without disconnecting their device from the wireless gateway. As a result, private or sensitive information is still visible on the display when the next group of people enters the room. AirMedia automatically disconnects devices from the wireless gateway to safeguard sensitive content.

More on its user experience from Crestron AirMedia 2.0 press release:

With AirMedia 2.0, there’s no more wasting valuable time figuring out how to get the technology in the room or space to work. With a consistent, simple, and intuitive user experience from the network-deployed app, guest app, or native device app, all you have to do is show up and start presenting.

More on its Cloud features from Crestron AirMedia 2.0 press release:

AirMedia 2.0 is a network-based appliance that can be deployed, configured, and managed from the cloud. Using CrestronXiO Cloud or the built-in web tool, the mobile app can be silently deployed to laptops and smart devices across the enterprise, and user access rights and firmware updates can be remotely managed.
