huddle roomThe workplace is constantly reinventing itself, demanding new technology to make enterprise collaboration and sharing much easier. In a hectic work environment, space can be limited and hooking up technology can be time consuming. That’s why growing businesses need more convenient and technology packed spaces accessible for conferencing and presenting.

Huddle rooms are small, interactive rooms that help increase productivity through state-of-the-art technology, and unite coworkers for presenting, collaborating, and decision making. With Crestron solutions, these small spaces become powerful, and can make any meeting or presentation easier than ever before.

Crestron Connect It™ (TT-100)

TT-100

One amazing Crestron solution for a huddle room is the Crestron Connect It Cable Caddy, TT-100. When you’re in a huddle room with other coworkers and you need to show them a spread sheet or presentation, you want to be able to connect devices fast and hassle-free. The TT-100 is easy to set up and allows you to connect devices through HDMI®, VGA, Audio, and Ethernet. Each connector cable is stored in the TT-100, so you can pull out the cable and simply plug it in to your device. After it’s plugged in, press the button on the interface and your content is instantly shown on the display. You can toggle between connected devices by pressing the button on the caddy. The TT-100 integrates seamlessly with DigitalMedia™, is 4K compatible, and comes in four different models.

 

Huddle Room Presentation Switchers

At the heart of every huddle room is a system that controls it all.  The Crestron 3-Series® 4K DigitaMedia Presentation System 150 (DMPS3-4K-150-C), as well as the 4K Scaling Presentation Switcher (HD-MD8X1-4K) and the 4K Scaling Presentation Switcher with HDBaseT® Output (DM-MD8X1-4K-C), are nothing short of perfection with the ability to easily and seamlessly connect and control any device in the room, as well as manage and switch between multiple AV sources. They support resolutions up to 4096x2160 and have a built-in Crestron Connect It functionality, so you can connect up to four TT-100 interfaces. These systems can be mounted under a table or in an equipment rack, making the huddle room look clean and tech-free and are already integrated with Crestron Fusion® software so even simple huddle spaces can be managed on the network. These systems are ready to go right out of the box with no necessary programming thanks to .AV Framework™, the grounding breaking  OS and plug-and-play solution that allows for easy setup straight from an iPad®, laptop, or the preloaded 7” touch screen (TSW-752-B-DMPS3_PAK).  Adding more power and convenience to your huddle room, these switchers automatically know when a source is connected to AirMedia™, making wireless BYOD presentation fast and simple. Simply turn it on, connect a device, and present.

AirMedia (AM-100)

As you enter the huddle room you take out your smartphone, which you always have on you, open your email with the presentation in it, and seamlessly display the content from your phone to the room display through the Crestron AirMedia app. 

With AirMedia, you can share content wirelessly via iOS® or Android™ mobile device, any Mac® or Windows® notebook, and tablets. AirMedia can connect up to 32 devices and features ‘moderator mode,’ which allows a host to keep meetings productive and control whose content is being displayed, whether from a web page or huddle room touch screen. The AirMedia app can also be silently deployed to computers across the enterprise, saving a tremendous amount of time and ensuring everyone in your organization is able to connect and present with a single mouse click.
