Crestron has announced that Epson has added RoomView Connected to its new PowerLite Pro G-series line of projectors. The power of Crestron RoomView Express software is now included free in the Epson PowerLite Pro G5550NL, G5650WNL and G5950NL projectors, providing enterprise help desk management, remote monitoring and control of global AV networks without any special wiring, hardware or programming.
“We are delighted that Epson has built Crestron RoomView Connected technology into its PowerLite Pro G-Series of projectors,” says Steven Vacher, educational support manager at Crestron UK. “The 3-Chip 3LCD technology in the projectors makes for amazing clarity and image projection. Combined with RoomView this provides a great solution for schools and universities to manage the AV, IT, HVAC, lighting and security from a central base without installing extra servers or software.”
Once connected to the network, teachers and lecturers can instantly control any installed RoomView Connected Epson PowerLite Pro G-series projector. With no programming required, AV and IT managers can globally monitor and control networked projectors throughout a school, campus, or corporate enterprise.
Implementing RoomView Express has never been easier and provides a gateway to a complete remote management system. By leveraging the Ethernet port on Epson PowerLite Pro G-series projectors and accessing RoomView, AV managers and support staff can remotely take control of classroom technology, troubleshoot and perform remote system diagnostics, track projector usage and lamp life, log network activity and much more.
Remote capabilities allow efficient scheduling of projector power-off at preset times, routine maintenance, faster response times to support calls, alert notifications if projectors are disconnected, and broadcast messaging of emergency alerts to all projectors.
“RoomView is a trusted management software solution that thousands of facility and AV managers rely on for easy network control and monitoring,” said Sean Gunduz, product manager, Projectors, Epson America, Inc. “Epson’s newest installation projectors are compatible with RoomView, ensuring existing Crestron customers extend their ROI, and providing peace of mind that these Epson projectors will work seamlessly in their networked environment.”
Adding rooms to the managed AV network is as simple as connecting the new Epson projector. Crestron RoomView automatically recognises the device for immediate, seamless communication and control.
