Anaheim, California (May 30, 2018) - Extron announced that it has teamed up with Zoom Video Communications to extend Extron control capabilities to any Zoom Room, providing a one-touch user experience for conferencing, collaboration, and now AV room control. There’s no more need to switch devices - a single user interface on your Apple iPad or Extron touchpanel is all you need to control every conferencing and audio/visual function. This partnership launches a new level of convenience, providing turn-key, centralized control of AV devices, shades, lighting, audio, and much more – all from the familiar Zoom Rooms interface.
"Extron is extremely excited to provide a range of scalable, complementary technologies for customers who have embraced Zoom Rooms," says Casey Hall, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing for Extron. "Being able to blend the ease of Zoom video communications with the power of Extron control systems and GlobalViewer Enterprise, will yield phenomenal opportunities to make data-driven decisions across the enterprise."
"Zoom is quickly becoming the defacto-standard in higher ed, not only in classrooms, but also in offices and meeting rooms across campus as well," says Gary Kayye, Assistant Professor and Lecturer at the University of North Carolina. "At UNC, we are virtually an all-Extron campus now with control. So, this is perfect timing for us as we use Zoom nearly everywhere, too."
