With previous certification for Crestron Connected, Sony has now integrated its latest IoT-based AV management platform, XiO Cloud, enabling businesses to access its workplace technology all in one place. As a certified partner, Crestron’s XiO Cloud platform allows customers to deploy, monitor and manage Sony’s displays from a centralized location, reducing installation time and increasing uptime.
