Crestron is a company that produces high-end audio-video control and automation systems. They have been in the business for over 30 years, and are known as one of the leaders in this market. Let's take a look at some of the products that they offer.

Crestron Products

Crestron produces components for both home and professional use. Their product line is incredibly large and varied, but they are best known for their a/v control products. These products are intended to tie together your home theater or a/v system, and allow you to control everything from a single control unit.

Crestron produces several different types of control units. Some of these are tied directly (and physically) into your audio-video system. They come in both panels with traditional push-buttons, as well as more advanced computer-based touch-screens. Recently, Crestron has added a line of control panels that act wirelessly, and can be carried around a house or office building without losing functionality.

One of the most interesting recent developments in audio-video controlling products has been the advent of internet-based interfaces. What this means is that you can control a home or business audio-video system from anywhere in the world, simply by logging into a specific website. The applications for this type of technology are endless, and Crestron has been one of the real pioneers in the field.
