Extron Electronics, a world leading innovator and manufacturer of audio visual and enterprise solutions, have in the past few days announced a new partnership with Zoom Video Communications.
According to Extron, the new collaboration between the two companies will extend Extron control capabilities to any Zoom Room, providing a one-touch user experience for conferencing, collaboration, and now AV room control.
What that means for users and companies for whom conferencing and collaboration is vital, is that there will no longer be a need for continual switching of devices. Instead, a single user interface on an Apple iPad or an Extron touchpanel is all any organisation or company needs to control every conferencing and audio/visual function in a given meeting room.
That, as per Extron’s announcement of the partnership, is slated as delivering a new level of convenience, providing turn-key, centralized control of AV devices, shades, lighting, audio, and much more – all from the familiar Zoom Rooms interface.
Casey Hall, Extron’s vice president of global sales and marketing, spoke effusively about the new partnership and its potential for Extron enterprise solution users:
‘Extron is extremely excited to provide a range of scalable, complementary technologies for customers who have embraced Zoom Rooms…Being able to blend the ease of Zoom video communications with the power of Extron control systems and GlobalViewer Enterprise, will yield phenomenal opportunities to make data-driven decisions across the enterprise.’
