CRESTRON ANNOUNCES ADD-IN FOR MICROSOFT® OUTLOOK®
Posted on Tuesday, May 18, 2010

 

Crestron RoomView® Asset Management and Scheduling Software Now Accessible through Outlook
 
ROCKLEIGH, NJ, May 18, 2010 – Crestron today announced the release of the new Crestron RoomView® Add-in for Microsoft® Outlook®. This revolutionary add-in seamlessly integrates the award-winning Crestron asset management and scheduling software into the Outlook environment. A “Crestron RoomView” icon located in the Outlook “Appointment” toolbar is the portal to powerful RoomView tools, such as room scheduling based on availability, room size and installed technology.
 
Benefiting from its extensive partnership with Microsoft, Crestron developed the add-in to deliver, within Outlook, a whole new level of scheduling functionality and efficiency. With direct network access to schedule conferences based on room availability, size and installed technology, a user can click on the Crestron icon in Outlook and select from a list of pre-defined meetings, to ensure that the right space is reserved for any meeting. For example, choosing a “videoconference” preset can turn on the projector, lower the screen and shades, dim the lights and dial into the VTC minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure the room is ready. Actions may also be chosen, such as powering down all systems in the room 10 minutes after the meeting ends.
 
“For the first time, IT/AV and facilities managers – or anyone who sets up meetings – can view calendars, invite attendees, and make sure that the right room is booked for any event based on the number of participants, the type of meeting and the technology required – all from one program,” said Vincent Bruno, Crestron Director of Marketing. “Achieving this level of integration demonstrates the reach and influence our industry has, in terms of shaping the future of business and technology. We are the ‘I’ in IT.”
