By: Scott Edwards

We had an amazing show at CEDIA 2019! Thanks to all who came by our booth and experienced Modus VR. The response to Modus VR was once again incredible and we came away with a CE Pro Best Product award. Modus VR is all about the end client's experience. It creates a powerful buying experience, helps them solve problems and make decisions faster, and builds customer loyalty. We continue to improve the client experience with new models, new materials, and a brand new file management system. We also introduce Crestron products including the Crestron Mercury and Crestron UC-B160. Keep reading for all that's new!

New: File Management System - You now have the ability to place projects and spaces in any folder you'd like. Before there was a single level of hierarchy. Now you can nest folders as deep as you want. Below is an example of what this will look in Modus VR.
