Crestron Construct UI
New editing tool for interfaces deployed across Control Devices.
Crestron Electronics has introduced Crestron Construct software, an intuitive, HTML5-based user interface (UI) editing tool for Crestron Control devices. The core feature of the Crestron Construct UI editor is a WYSIWYG drag-and-drop visual editor that enables organisations to swiftly customise their Crestron Control device interfaces to meet their functional and aesthetic needs without requiring in-depth coding skills.
The dynamic UI from Crestron Construct builds stunning and engaging interfaces that are completely customisable and can vary in size, orientation, and image output. A UI can be built once and then easily deployed to any number of Crestron Control devices without changing the layout, mitigating programming complexity and providing a consistent user experience. The result is a powerful, robust, and simplified control interface that streamlines deployment across commercial applications while optimising the Crestron experience in each meeting room location.
“In modern enterprise meeting rooms where interaction with technology is fundamental to the experience, having an intuitive and attractive control device UI is essential,” said Lauren Simmen, director, Product Marketing for Crestron. “With its simple drag-and-drop visual editor, Crestron Construct makes designing and deploying Crestron Control device interfaces effortless, saving time and leading to more fruitful meeting room experiences.”
The Crestron Construct UI editing tool is the first Crestron tool for HTML5-based UI design, and it offers improvements on previous Crestron UI design tools like dynamic editing UI, multi-resolution support, cross-OS compatibility, and a plugin architecture to provide a platform for all future development software. These features allow businesses to create a UI design once and use it in multiple applications without reconfiguring or reprogramming anything.
Users can also easily migrate existing projects from VT Pro-e software to Crestron Construct. Crestron has added HTML5 support to interface products, including the TSW-x70 series touch screens, the Crestron One mobile room control app, and the next-generation digital graphic engine.
