    We're looking to upgrade our conference room. Anyone have any experience with these A/V integration gizmos?

    Crestron and AMX are the standards that others are judged by. Current Crestron E-Control allows you to control the system from a computer or PDA thats running from IE in addition to their touchscreens and pushbutton panels. Crestron equipment is programmed by Crestron dealers, and can control anything that's electrical including lighting, HVAC, and all AV equipment. Crestron can also display status and error feedback from equipment.

    Crestron came out and put on a dog & pony show for us. I think we'll go with them. They had a small canniption when I asked how hard they are to program. Apparently that's a profit center for their resellers. ;f

    Crestron's easy to program, if you're a Crestron Certified programmer working by the hour. :)

    How is it programmed, kAr? Does it have some kind of HLL or is it something weird? We do PLCs, too.
