Crestron Roomview Integrates Emergency Broadcasting

RoomView Software Distributes Emergency Broadcasts to Crestron Connected Classrooms

ROCKLEIGH, NJ, January 20, 2009 - Crestron -connected campuses can now use RoomView remote help desk and resource management software to broadcast emergency messages. Critical information can be selectively routed to any device on the network that supports dynamic text, such as SMART boards, projectors, displays, and touchpanels. This Crestron solution utilizes existing systems to disseminate emergency information quickly and comprehensively.


Text -based communications about the type of emergency and related instructions, including evacuation routes and other emergency procedures, are issued from the school's help desk. Targeted messages can be issued to a single room, group of rooms, or campus -wide with a few simple clicks in RoomView. Text can be updated as the situation evolves.

"This new RoomView feature is in direct response to our A+ Partners who have been dealing with some very serious situations in the field. Now, schools have a simple, fully integrated solution," said Randy Klein, Crestron Executive Vice President. "The unique ability of Crestron to connect every room on a single managed network makes it possible to deliver urgent messages and instructions effectively and reliably."
