Provide a simple, scalable, and consistent classroom experience
Crestron® Campus Technology Solutions offer a quick path to transforming and standardizing every classroom, lab, and meeting space across an entire college campus. Each kit comes ready-to-deploy and includes everything you need to provide a consistent multimedia classroom experience for instructors and students. Each room features simple and intuitive functionality, so an instructor or guest lecturer can simply walk into any room and start presenting quickly.
Crestron AirMedia® wireless presentation capability, as well as auto-switching wired inputs at a lectern, desk, or table, allow anyone to connect and present easily using their own laptop or mobile device. Just as easily, they can connect a document camera or other media source. All Crestron Campus Technology Solutions are built on the same unified platform with enterprise-grade network management and security, so every space can be monitored, managed, scheduled, and controlled securely by authorized staff from any location on or off campus.

Campus scheduling, monitoring, and reporting
Crestron Fusion® monitoring and scheduling services add a valuable layer of intelligence to every classroom and meeting space on campus.
- Room scheduling – Crestron Fusion integrates with popular room calendaring platforms to maximize workflow and room usage. Rooms are automatically set up for use so everything’s ready to go when the instructor walks in, and can even be returned to inventory in the event of a “no-show” to make the room available to others.
- Help desk support – During classes and meetings, attendees can contact the help desk directly from the control panel in the room. Crestron Fusion sends event alerts to IT staff, enabling them to quickly resolve issues remotely to maximize uptime. Crestron Fusion stores all technical documentation room-by-room for quick reference.
- Global device monitoring – Crestron Fusion sends real-time status notifications for each device in any room on the network, so support staff can resolve issues before they interrupt workflow. Additionally, support staff can automatically receive reminders to perform routine maintenance.
- Data collection and reporting – Crestron Fusion collects data and generates detailed reports about room and device usage to help institutions optimize their investment in space and technology.
Cloud-based deployment and management
Crestron campus technology reaches out to the cloud for easy, cost-effective, and efficient deployment and management. Simply assign the room solution to a location, provision it based on your protocol, and it’s ready to go. There’s no time consuming programming, and no proprietary programming languages. It’s simple, browser-based management with the network security IT professionals demand.
- Crestron Device Management SaaS – Manage thousands of devices in the amount of time it would ordinarily take to manage one.
- Integrate – No-programming cloud AV management solution

Crestron campus technology supports the standard network security policies organizations already have in place. Every Crestron device is engineered with absolute security in mind.
- 802.1x ensures devices on the network have been explicitly sanctioned by the network administration team, which protects against unauthorized devices being added to the network
- Active Directory® ensures administrative privileges and access rights of individuals are centrally managed
- Industry-standard AES block cipher with robust PKI for AV content encryption to protect content from unauthorized access as it traverses the network
- SSL ensures that control systems and endpoint devices communicate only with intended devices and that commands and status cannot be monitored by unauthorized devices on the network
- SSH-based command-line console access for device configuration and status protects the device console from access by unauthorized users
- HTTPS authenticates and encrypts the web interface to ensure device settings are only accessed by authorized users
