Crestron was chosen by Microsoft® to participate at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference 2015, held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando from July 12-16. The WPC welcomed Microsoft partners from around the world and provided the opportunity for partners and customers to learn about the future of the company, hear from industry thought-leaders, attend presentations, and network with top tech executives from all over the world.

Crestron helped kick off the WPC with a pre-show event discussing and demonstrating Microsoft Surface™ Hub with integrated Crestron solutions. With more than two years of collaboration between Microsoft and Crestron, the Surface hub unlocks the power of the group, while Crestron control and automation products, and enterprise AV technologies unlock the full power of the meeting space. With the new .AV Framework™, integrated Surface Hub solutions require no programming and are ready to use right out of the box.

 

Kor Baydurcan, Crestron’s Director of Software Products and Enterprise Solutions, joined a panel of Microsoft partners, including Linda Morant and Allan Young, to present the best practices for designing solutions that leverage Microsoft Internet of Things (IoT) and cloud technology. Throughout the panel, he discussed Crestron Pyng™, the revolutionary home automation app and how IoT changes the way people interact with their residential or commercial settings through dynamic system learning, which shapes to the user’s life style and improves performance while remaining energy efficient.

 

When it comes to IoT, this isn’t the first time Crestron has been recognized as a thought leader. At the opening keynote during InfoComm 15, CTO of Crestron, Fred Bargetzi, spoke exclusively on the opportunities IoT provides and how connecting, managing, and personalizing network solutions help us interact with our technology and push a business forward.

 

Meanwhile, at the Microsoft device bar on the showroom floor, both Crestron Pyng and the MC3 3-Series Control System® were displayed. These Crestron solutions leverage IoT and cloud technology and wowed conference goers with intelligent control and automation capabilities, whether in the home or across the enterprise.
