CEDIA Expo 2023: Crestron Presents Big Updates for Dealers

Crestron is bursting with news at this year’s CEDIA Expo — and not all of it is related to product introductions.

Crestron is bursting with news at this year’s CEDIA Expo — and not all of it is related to product introductions.

“We’ve had some supply chain disruptions and the timing of CEDIA this year aligns really well with the improvement of processor availability,” says Brad Hintze, executive vice president of marketing, Crestron. “We are here getting the word out that you can place an order and get the product in the quantities you want exactly when you need it. Processors are in high demand, and we’re pleased with the recovery that we’re seeing there. In fact, by the end of this year, we will have completely fulfilled our backorders. We’ve worked hard to finally get to that place.”

That is no doubt music to the ears of Crestron’s dealers, but that is only one reason to stop by the company’s massive booth here — there are many more, and in this case, we are talking about new products.

The big news of the show is the release of Crestron Home OS 4, which, in addition to a new user interface that provides customers quicker access to the commands they use the most, also includes advancements in lighting control. Now dealers can add any lighting device into an updated Crestron Home system by writing a new driver or downloading the recently added drivers from the Crestron library.

Crestron Home OS 4 is running the entire booth not only to demonstrate how it seamlessly works with our Crestron solutions, but to show the true strength of the platform. Crestron Home is a flexible solution that can be scaled to a variety of sizes of projects including hospitality and MDU projects, which we know some dealers are interested in learning more about this year,” says Hintze.

CEDIA Expo also presents a great opportunity for product training, and Crestron is offering several manufacturer training courses at the show, covering Crestron Home, AV-over-IP with DM NAX and DM NVX, and tunable lighting.

Ultimately, the show presents Crestron with the chance to spend time with its dealers and potential dealers. “We view CEDIA as a great opportunity to engage with our dealers and to show off what we’ve been working on, but also to reaffirm our partnership,” says Hintze. “As far as new dealers, we know that every day there are new businesses in this market and they’re hunting for the right partner to work with. We’re eager to meet those businesses and help them establish a relationship with us.”

And what makes Crestron the right partner? “At the end of the day, we’re an engineering company, our products are built on a solid infrastructure and stand the test of time. We will continue to invest in building the best smart home platform for consumers and for dealers — one that is beautiful and easy to use.”

Crestron can be found at booth #1901 and at
