Designed for use with a Crestron® V-Panel™ HD Touch Screen Display[1,2], the DGE-1 Digital Graphics Engine allows for a very streamlined touch screen installation by placing the bulk of the electronics out of sight at the central equipment location. Mounted within an equipment rack, the DGE-1 connects directly to the head end AV sources, switchers, and control network, while the V-Panel display can be up to 150 feet (45 meters) away with just a single cable between them[3].

The DGE-1 features 24-bit graphics, with single-window video display, streaming video, and Crestron IP Intercom. Connectivity includes one composite or S-Video input, balanced stereo audio in/out, Crestron Home® CAT5 Balanced Audio, Cresnet®, and high-speed Ethernet. A DigitalMedia CAT output provides the connection to the V-Panel display.

Gestures Navigation
Adjust AV and lighting settings, or browse your music and movie libraries, all with a natural sweep of the finger using DNav gestures. Crestron DNav technology affords enhanced touch screen functionality, providing dynamic navigation control objects for scrolling effortlessly through all your touch screen controls, media cover art, and favorite channels.

Full-Motion Video
The DGE-1 supports the display of standard-definition video from an external composite or S-Video source. The video image can be displayed full-screen or in a fully-scalable window anywhere on the V-Panel touchscreen. External audio signals are handled by a single analog line input.

Streaming Video
Streaming video capability makes it possible to view security cameras and other video sources over the network right on the touch screen. Native support for the MJPEG format allows the DGE-1 to display live video images from IP cameras and servers such as the Crestron CEN-NVS200 Network Video Streamer[1].

IP Intercom
Using the microphone and speakers built into the V-Panel display[1], the DGE-1 supports 2-way voice communication via a choice of IP or Crestron Home (CH) CAT5 wired intercom. Crestron IP intercom eliminates the need for dedicated audio wiring, enabling 2-way speech over Ethernet with other compatible Crestron touch screens. Wired intercom is also supported through a dedicated CAT5 audio connection to a C2N-IADS30X24[1] or other CH CAT5 switcher or processor.

Keyboard/Mouse Options
On-screen keyboard and mouse capabilities enable complete control of the DGE-1's embedded Web browser and other applications, and can also be used to control computers running TouchPoint® Virtual Mouse & Keyboard Software (VMK-WIN). USB ports are also provided on the DGE-1 and on the V-Panel display[1], allowing for the connection of a physical keyboard and mouse.

Remote Annotation
Remote annotation capability allows multiple touch screen users to draw with their fingertips over the same video image or whiteboard screen, enabling enhanced interaction between several participants in a courtroom, classroom, or council chamber.
