Maverick AV Solutions Partners with Crestron Electronics to Bring Crestron SR to U.S. Market

Enables Maverick customers, the pro-AV channel and IT ecosystem to provide innovative Skype Room video conference technology to end users

Maverick AV Solutions, a specialized solution business of†Tech Data, announced an extended partnership with†Crestron Electronics, a global leader in enterprise control and automation technology, to distribute†Crestron SR, its next-generation Skype Room (SR) system offering, in the U.S. following its†successful launch across†Europe†last year. Designed in partnership with Microsoft, Crestron SR is a powerful, professional solution built for Skype for Business, which brings a simple-to-use, high-definition audio-visual (AV) experience to meeting rooms and can be easily deployed and managed on a network.

“In the last six months, the†Crestron†SR product has bridged the gap between AV and IT perfectly, delivering a product that brings video conferencing seamlessly into the meeting space,” said Jon Sidwick, vice president, Maverick AV Solutions, at Tech Data. “We see opportunities both in†Europe†and the U.S. for integrators merging AV and IT products, enabling further control systems and automation.”

Crestron SR is engineered to easily integrate with a wide range of meeting rooms—from small and midsize spaces to larger conference rooms—making it possible to easily join meetings, make calls and instantly share content in-room and remotely, all from a touch-screen device that manages the Skype meeting. Additional key features include HDMI inputs and outputs, six USB ports to connect audio devices and a port to add an occupancy sensor for automation and room usage reporting. With a suite of complementary products, Maverick’s collaboration team will spearhead the rollout of the product to the U.S. channel.

“Our partnership with Maverick in the U.S. is a natural progression of our European launch and gives Crestron a fantastic opportunity to build on the momentum of the last six months,” said†Ted Colton, vice president of Unified Communication Strategies, at Crestron. “There’s a burgeoning need in the States for comprehensive Skype Room Systems, and Maverick has already proven that its knowledge of the Microsoft ecosystem and AV industry is second to none, ensuring that this product receives the right support.”
