Sony Electronics Gains Certifications From Crestron And Cisco For Its BRAVIA 4K Professional Displays
Sony has received certification from Crestron and Cisco for its BRAVIA 4K Professional Displays.
Crestron is the market leader in automated and integrated control systems that create a flawless workflow between audio visual equipment, environment accessories and IT technologies. Crestron has developed a global certification program, Crestron Connected, that is turn-key at the engineering level, allowing certified manufacturing partners to natively connect, communicate, and monitor from one central location.
With previous certification for Crestron Connected, Sony has now integrated its latest IoT-based AV management platform, XiO Cloud, enabling businesses to access its workplace technology all in one place. As a certified partner, Crestron’s XiO Cloud platform allows customers to deploy, monitor and manage Sony’s displays from a centralized location, reducing installation time and increasing uptime.
Bob Bavolacco, Crestron’s director of technology partnerships, said: “Sony has always been a valued technology partner with Crestron by adopting our popular Crestron Connected 3rd party device control technology, and they have once again raised the bar by becoming certified with Crestron’s 2nd Generation Crestron Connected control platform, which now includes integration to Crestron’s XiO Cloud Remote Management solution.”
Sony’s BRAVIA 4K Professional Displays, including the recently launched FW-100BZ40J and FW-32BZ30J, are Webex certified and integrated with Webex Room Kit Series, the market leading devices for video meetings and virtual team collaboration. Meeting the standards of Webex Certifications including secure optimized image quality and automation ensures a seamless integration between Sony’s BRAVIA 4K Professional Displays and Webex Room Kit Series.
“We are excited to have Sony joining our ecosystem of Webex Certified partners, providing customers with ease of use and ultimate quality to enable meeting spaces for video meetings and virtual collaboration,” says Finn Helge Lunde, Cisco Webex product director.
