Rumor: Microsoft and Crestron Partnering for MCE Integrated Automation Solutions

living room tablet controller photoCE Pro/ has received word that Crestron will be making a major partnership announcement with Microsoft at CEDIA this September. No hard details have been made public, but CE Pro/ speculates that Crestron will be gaining Direct OEM status – like the manufactures working with Microsoft for CableCARD support – to bring custom home lighting, control automation, and networked A/V tablet/in-wall display solutions that will tie directly with Windows Media Center Edition (MCE). Again, this is just speculation… but it’s the trajectory that makes the most sense.
