More on Crestron Flex B100 Series’ flexibility (from press release):

With powerful built-in speakers, the Crestron Flex B100 Series fills the largest meeting spaces with crystal-clear audio. Conversely, its beam-forming microphone array picks up voices in the furthest reaches of the largest spaces.

The embedded Huddly IQ video conferencing camera provides cutting-edge technology, developed in partnership with Intel, that includes 4K digital auto-zoom, an undistorted ultra-wide viewing angle of all video conference call participants, people counting, and lifelike image quality to deliver nothing less than the best possible video conferencing experience. The Crestron Flex B100 Series is as simple to set up as it is to use, with no configuration required.

‚ÄúThe¬†Crestron¬†Flex¬†Smart¬†Soundbar¬†delivers¬†native Microsoft Teams and Skype for Business functionality¬†aimed at creating a better meeting and¬†collaboration¬†experience¬†for every room in a company‚Äôs office space ‚Äď from small huddle rooms to executive boardrooms,‚ÄĚ said Ted Colton, Vice President of¬†Unified¬†Communications¬†at¬†Crestron.

‚ÄúOur goal with our¬†new¬†Flex¬†Unified¬†Communication and¬†Collaboration¬†series¬†is to make working and using technology a seamless¬†experience, and not an additional hindrance for employees or a company‚Äôs IT department.‚ÄĚ
