Crestron Selects Clear-Com for Integrated Intercom Automation

Partnership Enhances Automation Devices with Digital Intercom Functionality

ALAMEDA, CA, JUNE 29, 2011 ─ Clear-Com®, a global leader in critical voice communication systems, is pleased to announce that Crestron Electronics, a leading provider of automation systems, has chosen Clear-Com's popular intercom matrix to be integrated with Creston's touchpanels and control solutions. By embedding the Eclipse Digital Matrix module into Crestron's automation devices, the company's control systems will be optimized for managing voice communication capabilities.

Creston's automation devices streamline and simplify technology by providing an easy-to-use, comprehensive interface for automating everything from lights to screens, as well as audio and video equipment. Clear-Com's Eclipse Digital Matrix, designed for direct or one-to-many user communications, is highly reliable, feature-rich and easy to integrate with other communication systems. When integrated, Crestron and Clear-Com users will be able to manage Clear-Com's digital intercom technology through a central Crestron control panel.

Customers of both companies will have more space and save money because the improved integrated automation system will reduce the need for additional intercom equipment. Crestron's automation systems will access Clear-Com's Eclipse Digital Matrix from its control apparatus so that it can function as a Clear-Com intercom control panel wherever it is installed. Therefore, having an integrated automation device eliminates the need for users to purchase and mount an intercom control panel in the room or to carry a beltpack.

“By integrating Clear-Com, we're able to offer easy-to-operate intercom communication options to our customers,” says Dominick Accurso, Crestron Electronic's Integrated Partner Program Manager. “Now with Crestron and Clear-Com, users have the ultimate connection to both people and technology.”

An interface module for Clear-Com's entire Eclipse Digital Matrix platform, including system and interface frames, as well as IP-control panels, can be integrated into Creston's automation panel based on clients' needs. More people will be able to connect to one another while enjoying the convenience, unmatched functionality and clarity of high quality, full-duplex communications.

“Through our partnership, Clear-Com brings exceptional intercom functionality to Crestron's already superior control systems,” says Bob Boster, Vice President of Worldwide Sales. “The integration of the Eclipse Digital Matrix will enable clear, quality communication at the touch of a button.”
