        Make the new reality more normal

        Our new reality is that no one really knows what is going to happen in the next few months or years. But how we work, teach, learn, and socialize is different now.
        We will be fine. We learn and adapt. We have learned that we need to be prepared, not just by stocking up on toilet paper, but also taking this opportunity to upgrade our remote conferencing capabilities at home.

        How to make the most of your meeting rooms: A new world demands a new standard in choice and flexibility

        The COVID-19 pandemic has forever changed the way we work. Social distancing has made connection and collaboration more of a challenge, yet all the more important to achieve. Office and meeting rooms, always at a premium, must now work even harder. Going forward, seamlessly working together, regardless of which conference room or what building we’re in or which video conferencing application we or a guest happens to be using will be the hallmarks of the successful workplace.

        Getting Back to Work Post COVID19 – Touchless Collaborative Meetings

        COVID19 has come, and life as we knew it will be no longer. Necessary shifts in behaviors, social norms, and habits, etc. are coming. Already, “touchless” interactions have been put into place, from buying groceries or a new car, to closing on a mortgage, to ordering take-out. This same reality will likely materialize in the workplace as regions of the country start to “open up” and employees return to the office. More specifically, workplace technology in meeting rooms (where collaboration and interaction are key) will need to evolve to meet the new reality. That’s where Crestron AirMedia® 2.0 comes in.

        SSO for XiO Cloud using Azure AD

        With Crestron XIO Cloud, you can use a Crestron.io Azure Identity or you can use your own Okta sign in. However, you may want to use your own Azure AD sign-in credentials. Let me show you how this can be set up. It will need a ticket opened with the Crestron support team to enable your tenant and create a subdomain for you.
