Remote Asset Management Software

View room status, track maintenance on devices, schedule end-of-day shutdown, book meetings in rooms, provide remote help desk assistance, capture and distribute multimedia presentations, and more — all from the web-based interface.

Fusion RV®<br>(SW-FUSION-RV)

Seamlessly monitor and manage boardrooms, classrooms, lecture halls, video conferencing rooms, and more with Crestron® Fusion RV®. View room and device status from the web-based user interface; remotely control and chat with rooms via the built-in help desk; view reports showing room usage; receive email alerts when a display is offline. With resource management, the Fusion RV room scheduling engine seamlessly books rooms via Outlook®, IBM® Notes®, CollegeNET® R25®, and Google Calendar™ — or right from the touch screen outside the room!

For CaptureLiveHD™ meeting and lecture capture, see "Media Services" below.

For energy management software, see Fusion EM®.

Scalable and Redundant Architecture
Built on industry-leading RoomView® Server Edition software, Fusion RV ups the ante with a scalable, redundant architecture. As your room database expands, add additional Fusion RV servers to balance the load. Using multiple servers also provides failover in the event that a server goes down. When deploying Fusion RV across a number of campuses, the network communication between room hardware and Fusion RV remains localized to provide faster performance. Seamlessly link Fusion RV servers from every office around the globe.

Enhanced Deployment and Asset Management
Fusion RV makes it easy to auto-discover AV assets. During system configuration and programming, any asset can be added to the system symbol. When Fusion RV searches for nearby rooms, it picks up these assets and automatically adds them to the database for tracking and maintenance.

Fast, Intuitive User Interface
The Fusion RV web-based user interface is extremely easy to navigate. Tabbed-type navigation makes it easy to quickly jump from one management area to the next. Fusion RV also allows for additional tabs with custom URLs to be created. Easily customize your view with sorting, groups, and filtering. Add documents, floor plans, and other images to rooms and assets. Control any room via the virtual touch screen and view activity in real time via a webcam. Send instant messages to discretely communicate with the presenter.

Reporting
One of the most powerful features of RoomView Server Edition is reporting. Analyzing what rooms get used most and how many times lamps need to be replaced each year are just two items that are invaluable for planning budgets and forecasting staffing needs. Built-in templates make it easy to run quick reports and quickly add new reports dynamically. Scheduled reporting automatically sends any report to a group of recipients on a regular basis.

Scheduling
Not only can Fusion RV schedule events like end-of-day shutdown, but it can also schedule rooms—based on its location, capacity, and assets—via the built-in scheduler, Microsoft® Exchange, IBM Domino®, CollegeNET R25, and Google Calendar. Schedule via the web-based Fusion RV interface or use the convenient RoomView Add-in for Outlook. Take advantage of new email notifications for meetings with message templates.

Administration
Fusion RV provides a completely redesigned user interface to make database administration easier. Now, use the fast search for rooms, assets, attributes and other database objects. The new server configuration screens make managing multiple servers simple. Best of all, application settings don't require a server restart when changes are made.

Preconfigured Server Option
For quick and easy implementation, Crestron offers the CEN-FUSION-RVS-R320 Fusion RV Server System[1]. The CEN-FUSION-RVS-R320 is preconfigured with all the necessary software required for Fusion RV, including a full Fusion RV user license.

Media Services
Media Services is a component of Fusion RV that works with the Capture HD® High-Definition Capture Recorder to enable the management and processing of media files as part of a complete CaptureLiveHD™ system. It is included in the purchase of a Fusion RV license at no additional charge.[2]
