Crestron, a global leader in workplace technology, today announced the release of a major user interface update for Crestron Mercury®, the industry-leading tabletop meeting and collaboration solution. The new UI features a more modern-looking, cleaner design that provides users with a simpler experience, including more intuitive navigation. The redesigned UI will ship with all new Crestron Mercury units and is available for existing units via a free firmware upgrade.
“The updated UI builds on the years of success of Crestron Mercury with a simpler, more refined user experience,” said Joe Sarrasin, Program Manager, Enterprise Solutions at Crestron. “It makes it easier for users to access what they need, with more information on the home page and call screens, including room schedule, status, and availability.”
The firmware update is available now and will be added to the auto-update for Crestron Mercury on Oct. 28th, at which point it will be the default on all systems. Information on how to install the new UI experience on existing Crestron Mercury units is available via a Crestron Online Help article so technology managers can evaluate it prior to the auto-update.
Enhanced core functionality
Crestron Mercury now includes the latest AirMedia® 2.0 wireless presentation UI, which provides automatic detection of the web browser and app installation for one-click wired or wireless connectivity and presentation in just seconds, plus support for Miracast® connectivity to boost collaboration in any meeting space.
