        Breaking Good: How Crestron Products are Tested

        One of the aspects of Crestron products that make them truly unique is their ability to withstand all manner of abuse – which means they’ve got to be tested. Before a product is ready for prime-time, it gets baked. It gets frozen. It gets battered. It gets probed. It gets bugged and hacked. It gets put through the wringer in Crestron’s in-house electromagnetic chamber. Each machine – from hardware to firmware to software – is rigorously tested so that it’s one less thing you – and your clients – have to worry about.

        How do we maintain the collaborative parts of working in the office? How can we use technology to help stay connected even though a large part of an organization’s staff might be remote (even if it’s just part of the time)? Products and platforms can help, sure, but what’s beyond that – how do we leverage all of this stuff to help us connect? In part one of this two-part series, we examine “intelligent video” solutions.

This is true for both new builds, as well as retrofits where a home office space had not been necessary before.
