CRESTRON JOINS THE WIRE BUSINESS

Now in stock and shipping direct from Crestron, new wire products reduce design and installation time while providing more options for dealers

ROCKLEIGH, NJ, September 30, 2004 - As part of its mission to deliver consistent signal integrity and reliability while reducing installation cost and complexity for every application, Crestron has engineered a new line of company -branded wire simply called Crestron Wire.


Why would a manufacturer like Crestron, who has established its niche as a leader in control technology, expand its business to include, of all things, wire and cable?

The addition of wire to the company's extensive product lineup offers its dealers more choices when weaving Crestron's many Total Home Technology solutions together, adds connectivity options for integrating the MediaManager™ family of products and provides a ready -made pathway for Crestron's exclusive QuickMedia™ transport system.

"Our new wire products represent another example of how Crestron wants to make it easy to do business with us," says Executive Vice President Randy Klein. "Dealers can now get the best wire available from the same place as the control systems, touchpanels and many other products that make up their integrated solutions. This helps reduce design and installation time while providing more options for our customers, and their initial response has been very positive."

Crestron wire is now in stock and shipping direct from Crestron, making it easier and more cost -effective than ever for dealers to specify and order any of the available options. As an incentive to dealers looking to reach higher sales levels in its Dealer Rewards Program, the company is counting all sales of Crestron wire as Qualified Purchases.

Crestron Wire options include:

Cresnet® control wire is available in both PVC and plenum, with a selection of spool sizes and convenient pull boxes. In addition, the new Cresnet -DM provides a low -profile wiring solution designed specifically for use with our CLW -Series Wall Box Dimmers and Switches
CresCAT™ structured wire is available in all of the familiar configurations to support versatile multi -room AV distribution using our CAT5 balanced AV distribution switchers, processors, and room solution boxes.
CresCAT -QM QuickMedia™ wire, available in PVC and plenum, provides the PROAV industry's simplest and most cost -effective wiring solution for multimedia signal distribution and control using our groundbreaking MediaManager™ family of products featuring the QuickMedia signal transport.
