        Crestron RL™ Rapidly Transforming Modern Conference Rooms

        Advanced Lync® Room System (LRS) drives collaboration and complete control from a single touch screen.

        Crestron RL, a group collaboration solution for use with Microsoft® Lync® 2013 continues to revolutionize conference room productivity, scheduling, and technology resource management. Since launching in July 2013, hundreds of businesses globally have updated their conference rooms with Crestron RL and product demand continues to exceed expectations.

        “We designed Crestron RL to maximize the benefits of Lync connectivity in the conference room while integrating all systems, including lights, shades, and AV onto one platform,” said Sean Goldstein, Vice President of Marketing at Crestron. “In addition it provides the lowest cost of ownership and is supported globally by Crestron’s award-winning customer service team.”

        Businesses around the world are choosing Crestron RL for their global collaboration needs. Adventist Health, an integrated health care delivery system comprising 19 hospitals and 180 clinics, relies on Crestron RL to execute over 8,000 web conferences a month.

        “The main differentiator of Crestron RL versus current competitors is to be able to extend the product use outside of the LRS unit and integrate it with other new or existing infrastructure,” said Michael Przytula, Managing Director, Global Communications and Collaboration Practice at Dell.

        Easy to purchase, easy to install, maintenance included
        Crestron helps businesses customize the right Crestron RL configuration for their needs. Multiple packages are available, including one, two, or no displays. Components include the Crestron UC Codec for Lync, a 10" tabletop Crestron touch screen control, as well as optional features such as a 360 degree panoramic HD camera and microphones.

        Crestron RL connects over the corporate LAN, making implementation easy and hassle-free. No system design or programming is needed and if a Lync server is already in use, no additional licenses, fees, or infrastructure expenses, such as MCUs or gateways, are needed.

        Attendees of Lync Conference 2014 in Las Vegas will have numerous opportunities to see Crestron RL in action. The system will be in use at corporate presentations around the conference, including at Crestron (booth # 622), booths for Dell and ScanSource®, and the Herman Miller® exhibit.
