WASHINGTON, DC—Crestron hosted the first Eagles Program dedication ceremony at Walter Reed Army Medical Hospital recently, unveiling the new home theater donated to provide comfort and entertainment for America’s heroes recovering from injuries sustained during combat overseas.
At the ribbon cutting, the community room was transformed into a state-of-the-art digital home theater, adorned with banners, flowers, and balloons to mark the special occasion.The Crestron Eagles Program was conceived by Crestron president George Feldstein to honor the service and sacrifice of our wounded warriors returning home from battle.
Crestron donated an Adagio home theater system, CEN-IDOC interface for iPod, TPMC-8X Isys i/O WiFi touchpanel, and a 52-inch HD plasma. Chris Wildfoerster, director of business development at Crestron, called upon partner companies to contribute to complete the system. “It took just one phone call to each partner,” he said. “Once I explained what we were doing, everyone wanted to help.” LG Electronics, Velodyne, Triad, and Marshall Furniture each contributed to this gift. Jose Rodriguez of Dal-Media and Kevin Busza of ICD Systems donated their time and talents for the system installation and programming.
