ISE a Huge Success for Crestron
ISE 2009 proved to be a huge success for Crestron and positively reinforced its leadership position amongst the manufacturers in the systems integration sector. An enthusiastic response was given to a wide-range of new products by delegates from across the EMEA region and, as always, Crestron hospitality was one of ISE’s networking highlights.
Robin van Meeuwen, International Sales Director, was delighted with the event and the health of the Crestron operation: “I’m absolutely delighted with our success at ISE. On the back of our record sales in December, to follow up with a successful ISE demonstrates how well placed we and our customers are to weather the global downturn and any knock-on effect for the systems integration business. I’m actually looking forward to the coming months and expect to repeat our success at Cedia Expo in London.”
A range of exciting new and already established products were on display at the show including the TPS-6X touchpanel, the MPC classroom presentation controllers, the brand-new revolutionary Digital Media system, alongside the latest version of Roomview software development kit and new QuickMedia solutions, including the latest version of the MPS.
Crestron is, as ever, at the forefront of innovation and another product which excited much comment at ISE this year was Crestron’s lighting control solution as Crestron was the first company to deliver a 17th Edition compliant lighting control solution for the UK market.
“Anyone involved in the maintenance, installation or design of electrical installations in buildings is going to be delighted we’ve launched this system, and it certainly pulled in the crowds at ISE,” adds Robin van Meeuwen. “The 17th Edition is demanding in its requirements and custom installers need to be aware, as much as anyone, that their lighting control installations will have to comply; and with our new DIN Rail system, they will. The addition of the energy monitoring feature is, I can guarantee, going to be massively popular with everyone. As a company, we are committed to continue to bring to market innovative control solutions which deliver real benefits to the dealer and user alike.”
Cresfest IV was also a sell out with the international audience dancing the night away to the pop legend Robin Gibb performing the hits of the Bee Gees.
