WALLINGFORD, Conn. – June 18, 2008- VBrick Systems, Inc., the industry leader in online networked video, today announced its membership into Crestron's Integrated Partner Program, which is designed to allow manufacturer's products to operate seamlessly in a Crestron systems environment. As an integrated partner, all VBrick products may be integrated into Crestron’s automation systems, using Crestron Certified modules, allowing users to easily control and enjoy business presentations or other robust streaming video applications.
Aimed at saving integrators both time and money, the new module makes it easy to implement VBrick’s networked video appliance into any Crestron automation system. Once installed, the new module allows integrators to provide access to the VBrick’s video streaming functionality via a Crestron touchpanel or control system, including power, input selection and many other controls. Some of these controls include both input and output aspect ratio control, so that users can easily define how they present images on their displays. Direct access to all picture controls and video processing modes are also provided which allow the user to fine tune the image from any source.
“VBrick’s membership into our Integrated Partner program allows our dealers the ability to easily integrate their streaming technology into their installations.” said Chris Wildfoerster, Director Business Development for Crestron, “VBricks solutions and reputation in the market makes them a perfect addition to our list of ever growing Integrated Partners.”
“Our enterprise video appliance product line is by its very nature a good network citizen and our partnership with Crestron makes its use even more seamless while exposing our products to a large channel of dealers and distributors,” said Mike Benson, vice president of product development, VBrick Systems, Inc. “With no need for multiple controls, Crestron’s module takes the guess work out of multi-vendor installations, ensuring that installs are done quickly and easily, saving installers both time and money.”
