The acquisition of 1 Beyond intelligent video technology brings an essential video conferencing solution into the Crestron ecosystem. Enabling the best video experience for both in-room and remote attendees is vital to hybrid work and ensuring productive and effective collaboration. Technologies like speaker tracking and auto framing ensure that every person can be seen, no matter where they are, and provide the best view for the remote attendees.
Since the introduction of Crestron Flex video conferencing systems, Crestron has continually innovated to provide incredible audio, a system that is easy to use and looks great and integrates with great cameras. By bringing 1 Beyond technology to Crestron, they’ll further develop Crestron’s intelligent video solutions to address the growing need to create equitable experiences for hybrid collaboration whether that be in the board room, the classroom, or anywhere else.
1 Beyond’s solutions expand the Crestron digital workplace portfolio and enable UTG to bring better experiences to our customers.
Like Crestron, 1 Beyond technology was built by an engineering-led group of innovators. We take a lot of pride in the products and technologies we recommend and provide to our customers, and 1 Beyond is no different.
For nearly 20 years, 1 Beyond was developed to bring innovative video solutions to the workplace. The innovators behind 1 Beyond have a background in broadcast video, bringing a level of refinement and sophistication, seen in television, including smooth transitions, and leveraging multiple camera angles, to intelligent video solutions.
With the addition of the 1 Beyond technology to Crestron, we can bring a dynamic and engaging video experience to the boardroom, classroom, or anywhere where hybrid meetings are taking place.
Today, 1 Beyond products offer:
- Presenter tracking that intuitively follows the presenter through the room to ensure that they can always be seen and heard, no matter where they are.
- Auto framing ensures that the people are the focal point of the room by automatically adjusting the camera to frame the people in the room.
- The multi-camera experience provides automatic switching between cameras based on feedback from the microphone, ensuring every person in the room can be seen.
