CLEARWATER, Fla., Feb. 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Maverick AV Solutions, a specialized solution business of Tech Data (Nasdaq: TECD), today announced an extended partnership with Crestron Electronics, a global leader in enterprise control and automation technology, to distribute Crestron SR, its next-generation Skype Room (SR) system offering, in the U.S. following its successful launch across Europe last year.

"In the last six months, the Crestron SR product has bridged the gap between AV and IT perfectly, delivering a product that brings video conferencing seamlessly into the meeting space," said Jon Sidwick, vice president, Maverick AV Solutions, at Tech Data. "We see opportunities both in Europe and the U.S. for integrators merging AV and IT products, enabling further control systems and automation."

Crestron SR is engineered to easily integrate with a wide range of meeting rooms—from small and midsize spaces to larger conference rooms—making it possible to easily join meetings, make calls and instantly share content in-room and remotely, all from a touch-screen device that manages the Skype meeting. Additional key features include HDMI inputs and outputs, six USB ports to connect audio devices and a port to add an occupancy sensor for automation and room usage reporting. With a suite of complementary products, Maverick's collaboration team will spearhead the rollout of the product to the U.S. channel.

"Our partnership with Maverick in the U.S. is a natural progression of our European launch and gives Crestron a fantastic opportunity to build on the momentum of the last six months," said Ted Colton, vice president of Unified Communication Strategies, at Crestron. "There's a burgeoning need in the States for comprehensive Skype Room Systems, and Maverick has already proven that its knowledge of the Microsoft ecosystem and AV industry is second to none, ensuring that this product receives the right support."
