Crestron expands support for Microsoft Teams

Crestron has expanded its solution portfolio with Microsoft to include Microsoft Teams integration in order to equip meeting spaces with Intelligent Communications (IC) technology.

With the newly announced capabilities, Crestron SR and the Crestron Mercury conference system will be able to run Microsoft Teams. It also allows organisations to repurpose Skype for Business hardware and receive recently announced Teams enhancements – such as Cortana voice integration and background blurring as they are rolled out.

Ted Colton, VP of UC strategies at Crestron, said: “Crestron provides customers with a broad selection of solutions for any room type, while also providing customers the ability to migrate to Teams over time without costly changes to hardware.”

Bob Davis, corporate VP of Office 365 engineering at Microsoft, commented: “In just its first year, Teams has become the ultimate hub for teamwork. By working with Crestron to make Teams available to meetings of all sizes, we’re furthering our mission of delivering Intelligent Communications to our customers around the world.”
