AdobeStock_69887100.jpegHave you ever been on vacation and when you get to your hotel room the only thing you want to do is turn on SportsCenter before you head out for dinner?  Your muscle memory is locked in on what buttons to push, where to find it, and what to expect.  Well, it is at your house any way.  Now you’re in a new city, with a different TV, and a lot of different variables are making this more difficult than it should be.  Between room service options, pay-per-view menus, and a completely foreign channel lineup, you may never stumble across what you’re looking for.  Collaboration during meetings is very similar.

Everyone has their chosen platform and service when it comes to a variety of communication tools.  Video conferencing, phone calls, webinars, etc.  But what happens when you have a client, or a vendor, or a prospect that uses a different, unfamiliar tool?  It often leads to longer, less efficient meetings and miscommunication.  This isn’t a problem any longer.  Enter Crestron Mercury.

What is Crestron Mercury?

Crestron Mercury is an all-in-one room solution that will support any video conferencing application.  No longer will differing platforms be an issue.  This easy-to-use console allows people to collaborate no matter where they are located or what conferencing application they use.
