Crestron Named High Impact Company of the Year

CEPRO readers vote that All of Crestron's Products are Winners

Rockleigh, NJ - In the December 2004 issue of CE Pro Magazine, Crestron was named High Impact Company of the Year. "Picking the most important products of the year is no small task" says Julie Jacobson, Editor of CE Pro. "That's why we ask our readers to select them."

When readers were asked to name the most important products for their business this year, many of them said Crestron. But which products from Crestron? All of them, they would say.

"One of Crestron's most distinguishing business characteristics is our diverse technologies and solutions," says Randy Klein. "It's our continuing goal to bring our customers in the Residential dealer/installer market; products that will help them grow their businesses up and out."

As it tends to do every year, Crestron introduced a slew of new products in 2004: several RF remotes including the WPR -48 waterproof model; the compact MC2W (wireless) and MC2E (Ethernet) controllers - -ideal for dedicated home theater automation; various tuners, a wallbox dimmer, the C2N -IVDS video intercom system and more. And that's on top of Crestron's full range of subsystems including lighting and HVAC controls, surround sound processors, A/V distribution systems, and one of the most robust software solutions on the planet.

Last year, Crestron was the only manufacturer to clinch two CEDIA Electronic Lifestyles awards -one for its C2N -DAP8RC digital audio processor and another for e -Control 2, an application that enables home control from any off -the -shelf Web browser.

With all of these products, Crestron is more committed than ever to offering the best support in the industry. In 2004 Crestron launched True Blue Online Help, a Web -based extension of the highly regarded True Blue support services.
