Ignite and Crestron partner together to automate and enhance the boardroom.
Crestron is a leading manufacturer of control systems and builds the technology that integrates technology. The amount of technology in buildings is rapidly growing and changing. The most significant change is that everything is now on the network: audio, video, voice, data, lighting, security, digital signage, Building Management Systems (BMS), shades, and heating & cooling systems. The design and implementation of these technologies, however, is typically done independently. As a result, each one operates on a separate platform, adding many layers of complexity and inefficiency. Crestron builds the technology that integrates all of the disparate systems and devices in buildings and homes on a single open platform so they can communicate and work together intelligently.
Ignite works with our clients to understand what their ‘90% rule’ is – what are those ‘must haves’ to make a boardroom functional for their end users. By using this approach, we can pair down the multitudes of options available to those that will be used on a consistent basis. Working with one of our expert programmers and with your direction, we help our customers decide what the most important aspects are to the boardroom in order to take away the complexity and increase user adoption. Ignite can also help standardize on room functionality within an organization so that every room works and acts the same . This allows users to walk from one room to the next and know how to make the technology work. Crestron enables us to put in place the customization required to make sure the rooms are user friendly and consistent and gives us a comprehensive list of features to work from.
Extron Electronics is one of the leading providers of innovative AV solutions that work together to convert, switch and distribute signals, and control entire AV systems from a single interface. Extron products switch, distribute, stream, and control AV signals from any source to any destination while maintaining signal integrity and ease of integration in a wide variety of applications. These products include computer-video interfaces, switchers, configurable control systems, distribution amplifiers, signal processing equipment, streaming codecs, high resolution cables and audio products including speakers, digital signal processors, and amplifiers.
Ignite partners with Extron to make sure our customers’ video experience is stable, the image always fits the screen size – doesn’t matter what type of laptop is plugged in, it will fit the screen – and that the boardroom is easy to connect to. Connection is made easy by things like using ‘cable cubbies’ embedded in the table with retractable cables that are always there, kept neat and tidy and won’t go missing from the rooms. These are the extra things that make a boardroom easy to use, plug and play and increase user satisfaction and adoption.
Ignite only specifies Enterprise grade displays that are purpose built for an office environments 24/7 operation. These Enterprise grade displays have the durability to last and are typically brighter with a higher response rate to respond more like a computer monitor than a traditional TV screen. These displays are built to be controlled via a control system so that customers can do away with remote controls cluttering up the boardroom table and adding complexity to the solution. Displays are typically able to be networked in order to monitor status and alerts.
