ROCKLEIGH, NJ--Crestron has introduced its new Eagles Program, an initiative that donates state-of-the-art home theater systems to military hospitals. The Eagles Program was conceived by George Feldstein, Crestron president, to provide comfort and entertainment for wounded service men and women returning from active duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. The first two hospitals to receive donation Walter Reed Army Medical Hospital in Washington, D.C. and The Wounded Warriors Battalion East at Camp Lejeune in Charlotte, NC.
In addition to the donation of its own products, Crestron also reached out to partners LG Electronics for Blu-Ray players; Velodyne subwoofers; Triad speakers; and Marshall Furniture for custom designed cabinets.
Crestron Authorized Independent Programmer, Kevin Busza, of ICD Systems is donating his time and expertise to program the systems and touchpanels. Crestron also received support from AVI in Charlotte, NC, which is donating the infrastructure and installation for the Camp Lejeune Theater, and Dal-Media of Phoenix, AZ is installing the home theater at Walter Reed.
