Crestron has become a workplace room control and automation leader, and this is certainly the case with their enhancements for the Crestron VC-4 Virtual Control. The VC-4 Virtual Control is a software-based control solution that compliments hardware-based Crestron control systems by offering more scalability with the same functions.
VC-4 Virtual Control gives enterprise IT managers an expanded list of options for in-room control platforms. This means that existing hardware-based solutions will continue to be supported by the VC-4 Virtual Control while it provides IT managers with a scalable software control platform. It can support 500 spaces on only one server, allowing the user mass deployment for standard or customized room setups with only the touch of a button. This can help users and enterprises increase their control platform lifecycle while saving them time and labor costs.
Fast and Safe Scalability
The pandemic created a high uptick in hybrid working, resulting in a higher need for collaboration spaces. This has led IT teams to set up more spaces than ever before. The VC-4 was built for the exact purpose of growing the number of rooms. The Crestron VC-4 lets IT teams design and set up everything in a room from UV to AV. They can then save their configurations and automate them in no time, cutting down labor costs for common applications since the VC-4 streamlines the configuration experience. It has also been integrated with standard programming languages like C# for IT and SIMPL for AV professionals, so it does not require new training to use.
With the native SIMPL integration, thousands of Crestron programmers can use VC-4 will equal results. The VC-4 design is perfect for today’s increase in hybrid work and pairs well with other Crestron ecosystems like Flex Digital Workspace Technology and DigitalMedia Content Distribution for an integrated user experience. VC-4 also comes with the XiO Cloud Technology Operations Management platform which offers its users device lifecycle management, control, and remote support to maintain operational standards and room uptime efficiency at scale.
VC-4 also allows IT teams to leverage existing IT infrastructure to be used as an on-premises solution for redundancy and fault tolerance, supporting enterprise-grade security guidelines. The functionality of the VC-4 is done through the server and not a public cloud, which gives the user local data storage and more control over data patches and server maintenance through cloud-based firmware updates. At a minimum, the VC-4 scalability is incredibly secure.
The VC-4 is one of the best values for scaled environments and is running at only $1000 per room. Find yours here on the Ultimate Technologies Group product page.
