The only enterprise-grade appliance that provides ideal viewing of whiteboard annotation from every seat in the room, or for remote conferencing participants
Amsterdam, The Netherlands – February 5, 2018 – Crestron, a global leader in enterprise control and automation technology, announced today it will debut its new Crestron AirBoard™ PoE electronic whiteboard technology at ISE 2018. Crestron AirBoard enables viewing of electronic whiteboard content on any display device, thereby solving the problem of meeting participants – remote participants, especially – not being able to see the whiteboard unless they’re seated with a direct line of sight. Crestron is demonstrating the Crestron AirBoard in Hall-2, Stand 2-C20 at ISE 2018, 6 – 9 February, 2018.
“The whiteboard is the last analogy device in the room, and with so much competition for ‘front of the room’ space, they are typically installed on the extreme sides of meeting rooms, where visibility is limited,” explains Dan Jackson, Director, Enterprise Technology at Crestron. “Now, with Crestron AirBoard, the center room display or projector screen can show the whiteboard so everyone can easily see it. Plus remote participants can actually see when someone writes on the whiteboard without holding up a phone or laptop camera.”
Attaches to any whiteboard
Crestron AirBoard is essentially a camera on an arm that attaches to any electronic whiteboard via the included mounting kit. With PoE, only a single Ethernet cable to the LAN is required for video, communication, and power.
Easy to operate
With Crestron AirBoard, annotations can be saved and then posted, emailed, or texted to either a central web page (education applications) or to invited participants (corporate applications). Meeting participants simply choose “whiteboard” as a source on the in-room Crestron TSW or Crestron Mercury™ touch screen to start the session. When “end meeting” is selected, the user is prompted to save and send the file.
Remote conferencing participants can access the whiteboard session much like they would connect to Crestron AirMedia®, by entering the URL (or friendly name) shown on the room display in their web browser. Once on the web page, the user simply enters the dynamic PIN or access code, which is also shown on the room display.
Crestron is demonstrating Crestron AirBoard, along with its other solutions that meet the challenges of the modern workplace in Hall-2, Stand 2-C20 at ISE 2018, 6 – 9 February, 2018.
