Crestron Electronics has announced an expansion of its room control portfolio with enhancements to Crestron VC-4 Virtual Control. The control solution compliments Crestron control systems by offering a more scalable alternative with the same powerful functionality.
VC-4 expands the range of choices IT managers have for their in-room control platform. This provides a scalable software control platform while maintaining support for existing hardware-based solutions. VC-4 enables mass deployment of customized or standardized configurations with the press of a button, delivering significant savings of time and labor costs while dramatically increasing the overall control platform lifecycle.
“The VC-4 software solution provides users a comprehensive range of enterprise room control solutions that will deliver immense value at scale,” said Toine C. Leerentveld, Senior Group Product Manager, Control Solutions for Crestron. “No matter what preferences an enterprise IT team has, the addition of VC-4 to our room control portfolio means that Crestron will have a solution to suit every need.”
The purpose-built VC-4 software-based solution will accelerate deployment for this ever-expanding array of rooms. Crestron VC-4 enables IT, specialists, to design and configure a room’s UC, AV, and control solutions, save those configurations, and then automate them in a fraction of the time.
VC-4 also comes equipped with the XiO Cloud® Technology Operations Management platform, providing device lifecycles management, control, and remote support to maintain operational standards and maximize room uptime efficiently at scale, while providing enhanced data insights from a single dashboard.
The standards-based, service-oriented architecture of VC-4 also enables IT teams to leverage existing IT infrastructure for redundancy and fault tolerance and as an on-premises solution, it supports enterprise-grade security protocols. All functionality on VC-4 is executed from the server and not in the public cloud, which enables local data storage and greater control over security patches and server maintenance with cloud-based firmware updates as well.
