Crestron RoomView Connected Built into New Epson Projectors Enables
Direct Network Connectivity for Remote Management of AV Networks
Rockleigh, NJ, November 19, 2010 – Crestron announced today that Epson has added RoomView™ Connected to its new PowerLite® Pro G-series line of projectors. The power of Crestron RoomView® Express software is now included free in the Epson PowerLite Pro G5550NL, G5650WNL and G5950NL projectors, providing enterprise help desk management, remote monitoring and control of global AV networks without any special wiring, hardware or programming.
“We are delighted that Epson has built our RoomView Connected technology into their PowerLite Pro G-Series of projectors,” said Crestron Director of Business Development, Steve Samson. “Epson continually raises the bar, and with RoomView capability onboard, these projectors set a new standard for power and performance.”
Once connected to the network, classroom teachers and presenters can instantly control any installed RoomView Connected™ Epson PowerLite Pro G-series projector. With no programming required, AV and IT managers can globally monitor and control networked projectors throughout a school, campus, or corporate enterprise.
Implementing RoomView Express has never been easier and provides a gateway to a complete remote management system. Adding a Crestron control processor enables control of all AV devices, lighting and environmental systems on the network from any Crestron touch screen, Web browser and Apple® and Android® mobile devices including iPad™ and iPhone®.
By leveraging the Ethernet port on Epson PowerLite Pro G-series projectors and accessing RoomView, AV managers and support staff can remotely take control of classroom technology, troubleshoot and perform remote system diagnostics, track projector usage and lamp life, log network activity and much more.
Remote capabilities allow efficient scheduling of projector power-off at preset times, routine maintenance, faster response times to support calls, alert notifications if projectors are disconnected, and broadcast messaging of emergency alerts to all projectors.
“RoomView is a trusted management software solution that thousands of facility and AV managers rely on for easy network control and monitoring,” said Sean Gunduz, product manager, Projectors, Epson America, Inc. “Epson’s newest installation projectors are compatible with RoomView, ensuring existing Crestron customers extend their ROI, and providing peace of mind that these Epson projectors will work seamlessly in their networked environment.”
Adding rooms to the managed AV network is as simple as connecting the new Epson projector. Crestron RoomView automatically recognizes the device for immediate, seamless communication and control.
