Orlando, FL – June 11, 2019 – Crestron, a global leader in workplace technology, is debuting powerful new features in the latest version of Crestron XiO Cloud™, the company’s award-winning IoT-based technology provisioning and management solution, at InfoComm® 2019, June 12 – 14 in Orlando, FL. Crestron XiO Cloud now further empowers technology managers with remote support for touch screens, support for a growing portfolio of third-party devices, and an API to pull intelligence data. Crestron is also introducing a Developer Kit. Live demonstrations are available at booth #1800, Orange County Convention Center.
“The new features and developer tools, plus support for even more devices, speaks to our commitment to support technology managers by evolving the Crestron XiO Cloud platform – and without requiring any additional infrastructure investment,” said Brian Donlan, Crestron Technology Manager, Enterprise Software.
Complete technology management solution, out of the box
Crestron XiO Cloud supports a direct device-to-cloud connection via an Azure® IoT Hub, with no additional hardware required. Simply register your devices at the time of purchase and everything needed to manage your devices is available in the cloud portal. Azure services provide unlimited scalability, unlike other virtual machine-based cloud solutions. Crestron XiO Cloud requires no special ports or permissions, and enables bi-directional communication between devices in real-time.
“Crestron XiO Cloud is a true worldwide service. It’s available globally, but with performance and redundancy locally,” adds Donlan. “It’s a multi-tenant hyper-scale cloud; so deploying thousands of devices for the enterprise within minutes can be done anytime, anywhere, without worrying about deployment size or location.”
New features and developer tools
- Crestron XiO Cloud now enables managers to remotely view and control Crestron touch screens (TSW and TSS), making technical support faster and simpler
- A new API enables managers to pull data by connecting Crestron XiO Cloud to business intelligence platforms via cloud-to-cloud connections

Deploy. Manage. Monitor. Evolve.
Built on the Azure IoT Hub, Crestron XiO Cloud enables organizations to simultaneously configure and deploy an unlimited number of Crestron products, thereby reducing installation time by up to 90%. Technology managers can then monitor and manage all devices from Crestron XiO Cloud, proactively resolve events remotely to prevent lost work time, and gather actionable usage data, all without programming.
