The addition of Crestron RL™ and Crestron AirMedia™ solutions will further strengthen and enhance Video Corporation's existing unified communications portfolio

Crestron today has announced that specialist distributor and wholly owned subsidiary of Imago Group plc, Video Corporation will be distributing Crestron RL™, a group collaboration solution for use with Microsoft® Lync® 2013, in both the UK and France.

Crestron RL™ is designed to extend the Microsoft® Lync® experience to the conference room so that groups can communicate and collaborate in real time regardless of their physical location. It combines the intuitive room control solutions of Crestron with the unified collaboration features associated with Microsoft Lync and incorporates the Crestron UC Codec for Lync, plus HD camera, microphone, speaker bar, one or two 65" touch displays and a high resolution 10" tabletop touch screen.

James Vickerage, Head of Northern EMEA at Video Corporation said: "Customers are demanding more user control and collaboration from video conferencing. Crestron RL™ meets this demand head on, enabling users to share content instantly and easily. Crestron RL™ is also unique in that it integrates all systems, including lights, shades, and AV onto one platform. This is not only great news for the customer, but a great opportunity for dealers and integrators too".

In addition, the agreement will incorporate distribution of Crestron's AirMedia™ presentation tool. This allows users to wirelessly connect their own device in a meeting or collaboration session and share content. There are no wires or complicated settings to configure and no AV or control system is required.

The addition of Crestron RL™ and Crestron AirMedia™ solutions will further strengthen and enhance Video Corporation's existing unified communications portfolio. The company is well placed to market both of these solutions, having successfully distributed products for a wide range of leading vendors, including Vidyo and Radvision.

"The partnership with Video Corporation provides us with an invaluable route to market though their well-established reseller channel," said Robin van Meeuwen, at Crestron International. "Video Corporation is committed to helping its reseller customers choose, configure, and deliver the industry's best solutions across nearly every vertical market. We are confident that Video Corporation will deliver quality service and experience to customers interested in purchasing Crestron RL systems."
