Intelligent video solutions are the core of rooms Crestron Sightline. Speakers are actively followed and framed and multiple screens offer better visibility of remote participants, creating more immersive calls.

Crestron Sightline brings together the company's core platforms, Including Flex Digital Workplace, DigitalMedia Content Distribution and Control and Management. With these technologies it is possible to create the most suitable meeting experience, promoting natural conversation, meeting equity and improved collaboration across organizations, regardless of where employees are located.

The problems of hybrid work have become apparent. Remote participants want to see who's in the meeting and hear every word, ensuring that they participate on an equal footing in the meeting. On the other hand, face-to-face attendees should juggle to facilitate communication with others in the room while including remote participants in the conversation.

To meet these challenges, intelligent video solutions are at the core of Crestron Sightline rooms. Speakers are actively followed and framed, and multiple screens offer better visibility of remote participants, creating more immersive and engaged calls.

Entrepreneurs looking to design an optimal technology experience for their teams can apply the fundamentals of Sightline at scale for different rooms, especially in large, specialized spaces that are difficult in the hybrid world.

These spaces require different technologies and techniques to accommodate a larger number of participants. In a Sightline configuration, Crestron's key solutions offer an equitable meeting experience for every participant.

A Crestron Sightline room provides a satisfying meeting experience for all parties by adhering to some key principles:

  • Makes it easy for attendees to get involved in the flow of the meeting and follow the dialogue in the room as the conversation moves from person to person.
  • Displays a view of the entire room and, at the same time, frames individual speakers using smart cameras and AI-based video software for remote participants.
  • Eliminates the cognitive element of knowing where to look by having video from remote participants in the line of sight of in-person attendees.
  • Increases visibility of remote assistants and improves natural interaction with in-person cues or nonverbal body language.

El trabajo híbrido ha abierto muchas oportunidades y, in the last two years, we've learned to leverage technology to stay connected, incluso cuando la proximidad física no es posible”, Explains Brad Hintze, Executive Vice President of Global Marketing, Crestron. “However, this style of work also creates a subset of challenges to the meeting experience, especially in large rooms. Sightline creates an inclusive hybrid meeting experience in every space.".
