Ron Williams portrait"Please touch" and "international design award" seldom appear in the same sentence, but in the case of IT design analyst Ron Williams' work, they go hand in hand.  

Williams recently was honored by Crestron, the world's leader in advanced control and automation systems, with a Masters Design Award for his audio-visual touch screen control panel designs.  

The panels allow OHIO instructors, presenters and students to control projectors, computer inputs, audio sources, and room lights in lecture halls and conference rooms via an intuitive, point and press interface. 

According to Williams, the Masters Design Award is an international competition open only to those Crestron programmers who have completed an invitation-only Masters class at the company's headquarters. While there are thousands of Crestron programmers, only 700 have successfully passed this elite selection process. Williams' design was one of only seven designs chosen for the award.

  • Seigfred
