Crestron will enhance its Crestron Pyng Luxury Home Automation platform to now include support for third-party AV devices. Crestron has once again partnered with LG Electronics to extend IP control of its enterprise-quality displays into the luxury residential market for LGs 2017 and 2018-series consumer OLED, SUPER UHD, and UHD TV’s.
LG’s TVs are the first displays to be included in this release. Support for Pyng video is scheduled to release in the summer.
“Choosing LG as a launch partner for this enhancement was a no-brainer,” said Bob Bavolacco, partnerships manager for Crestron. “LG and Crestron have partnered to provide IP control of their displays for several years with great success in the enterprise market, and when we were looking to extend that into the residential market, the decision to launch with LG was immediate.”
“We are very pleased to work with Crestron to broaden our relationship to include IP control of our consumer LG TVs including our category-leading LG OLED, LG SUPER UHD, and LG UHD TVs,” said David Park, senior product marketing manager for LG. “With the rapid growth of AI, the TV has become an increasingly more important player in whole-home solutions. LG TVs deliver the ultimate combination of world-class picture quality and access to the world’s leading AI platforms. The addition of the Crestron Pyng Residential platform further builds on value of an LG TV in the connected home environment.”
