Crestron® Mercury™ transforms your meeting rooms into highly effective collaboration spaces. Combining all the must-have conferencing features in one easy to use device, Mercury enables people to work together and share content irrespective of location. Exceptional full-duplex audio and optional HD video afford a gratifying and productive meeting experience for all participants. Integrated room scheduling and corporate directory access help to maximize efficiency. Mercury is secure, easy to deploy, easy to manage, and protects your investment by providing room usage data as part of a complete managed enterprise.
Mercury’s advanced design facilitates perfectly natural conversations with exceptional audio fidelity and pickup. Its 360° quad microphone array faithfully captures voices at every seat at the table. Its high-powered, full-range speaker produces full, rich and real sounding audio for both voice and program material. Limes Audio TrueVoice:tm: AEC technology achieves transparent full-duplex performance free of distracting echo or noise. Wideband audio codec support allows for full-spectrum, bidirectional voice communication.
Mercury’s unique sloped shape is not only attractive and unobtrusive; it’s also functional, allowing for placement at either the center or head of the table. Large or long tables can easily be accommodated by adding up to two mic pods (sold separately), which may be daisy-chained or individually home-run to the base unit. Each mic pod includes a remote mute button and indicator.
Two Mercury models are offered to accommodate different applications and budgets. The base package (CCS-UC-1 W/PS KIT) supports full SIP VoIP speakerphone, Bluetooth, and USB Audio capabilities. The video package (CCS-UC-1-AV W/PS KIT) adds capabilities for multimedia presentation and videoconferencing, and includes a USB camera. Both models come complete with all required cables and are powerable using either PoE+ or the included 100-240V universal power pack.
Its extra-large, high-definition touch screen makes Mercury easy for everyone to use, whether dialing or answering calls, looking up contacts, managing the room schedule, or connecting and controlling mobile devices. The full-color user interface provides quick access and intuitive operation, and affords a consistent user experience from room to room.
Mercury integrates directly with Microsoft Exchange Server:registered: or Crestron Fusion:registered:, allowing seamless room scheduling and automation for any number of Mercury-equipped rooms. Mercury welcomes attendees to the room with a customizable on-screen confirmation of the scheduled meeting, and provides gentle notifications as the meeting progresses to show the time left and what’s scheduled next for the room. Using the touch screen calendar application, the meeting can be extended or a new meeting can be scheduled.
The Crestron PinPoint:tm: App can be used to locate and reserve any available Mercury-equipped room in the facility. As you enter the room, Mercury’s built-in PinPoint beacon detects your presence and provides personalized feedback and connection options on your mobile device, letting you instantly start your presentation. Mercury also works with Crestron room scheduling touch screens installed outside the room, all managed through Crestron Fusion.
Mercury also detects room occupancy using a patent-pending combination of motion and voice activity detection. Its built-in passive infrared detector initially senses when someone is present in front of the touch screen, and then voice activity is used to maintain the room’s occupied status as long as anyone in the room is talking. Occupancy detection provides numerous benefits, such as automating the system to power down to save energy when all parties leave, or making the room available on the calendar if no one shows up for a scheduled meeting.
Mercury is an enterprise-grade appliance, ideally equipped for mass deployment throughout any-sized corporate, university, medical, military, or governmental facility. Cloud-based provisioning enables complete network configuration in advance of hardware delivery, with touchless updates following installation. Devices can also be configured individually using a computer web browser. Crestron Fusion management enables monitoring and logging of room and equipment usage, as well as centralized help desk support. Advanced security features include 802.1x authentication, Active Directory credential management, LDAP directory management, SRTP, SSH, TLS, and HTTPS. Dual LAN ports allow VoIP or AirMedia traffic to be isolated on a secondary network, and 802.3at PoE+ compatibility enables Mercury to be powered through its primary LAN connection.
